This month, we have yet to see the release of Spontaneous Escapes, and rather, Singapore Airlines has launched the Global Redemption Sale, which offers 25% off select flights in the airline’s network.
Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Global Redemption Sale
Singapore Airlines has launched the KrisFlyer Global Redemption Sale, which offers 25% off select award flights.
The 25% discount applies to economy Singapore Airlines Saver-level awards to anywhere in its network, as well as to Saver-level premium economy awards between Singapore and select destinations in the United States.
Furthermore, the 25% discount only applies to flights operated by Singapore Airlines, and not on other partner airlines. You may not waitlist for a discounted award with this promotion.
Award flights must be booked from October 16–22, 2023, and are valid for flights from January 1–July 31, 2024, with some blackout dates on the Singapore–San Francisco route.
The 25% discount offered through the Global Redemption Sale applies to Saver-level premium economy awards to the following US destinations:
- San Francisco (SFO)
- New York (JFK)
- Newark (EWR)
No registration is required for this offer, and importantly, flights can’t be changed or cancelled once booked.
You’ll know that a flight has a 25% discount baked in, as it’ll appear under the Promo column in the search results.
Availability looks to be quite consistent on the routes, including in premium economy.
It’s unclear if this is a one-time promotion, or if Global Redemption Sales will take the place of Spontaneous Escapes moving forward.
If you’re looking to redeem points for business class flights, be sure to check for award availability through Aeroplan.
How to Earn Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles
As a reminder, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles can be earned by converting any of the following transferable points currencies:
- HSBC Rewards at a 25:9 ratio
- Amex US Membership Rewards at a 1:1 ratio
- Chase Ultimate Rewards at a 1:1 ratio
- Citi ThankYou Rewards at a 1:1 ratio
- Capital One Miles at a 1:1 ratio
- Marriott Bonvoy at a 60,000:25,000 ratio
As is always the case, it’s best to make sure that there’s award availability on your selected dates prior to moving points around. This way, you won’t be disappointed if you move points and then don’t have an optimal way to redeem them.
It’s worth noting that transfers from Capital One Miles are typically instant, while other transfers from US bank partners are usually completed within a day.
As for HSBC Rewards, the official transfer time is up to 30 days; however, you can expect the points to arrive in your account in under a week.
If you’re converting Marriott Bonvoy points into KrisFlyer miles, you can expect the transfer to take up to a week; however, in practice, it might happen sooner.
Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has launched the Global Redemption Sale promotion, through which you can save 25% on Saver-level economy flights worldwide, as well as premium economy flights between Singapore and the United States.
Flights must be booked between October 16 and October 22, 2023, for travel from January 1–July 31, 2024.
Availability for flights is quite good across the board, so if you can take advantage of the reduced award costs, be sure to lock in a booking before the promotion ends.
