Singapore Airlines Promo – Worth to book?

Generally speaking, only redeem premium cabins (Business Class or First Class) when using miles. Current Singapore Airlines promo also applies to Economy Class routes, but I am only highlighting Business class promo. The reason being your hard-earned miles are valuable and redeeming only Business class or First Class makes sense. Let me explain.

Essentially we want to compare the price if buying outright versus using miles. And generally speaking, when you are getting more than 1cent per mile, you should redeem using miles.

The calculation is as follow.

Effective cost per mile = (Ticket purchased outright – Taxes incurred when using points) / number of required miles

To simplify the calculation, always remember to use US Dolllar.

Take an example Jakarta to Singapore route.

Effective cost per mile = ($1026 – 11) / 12,250

= $0.08

You are getting a whooping 8 cents when redeeming this flight. When given the options to purchase the ticket outright or redeem the flight using miles, remember to use your points.

With the current credit card deals with huge bonus sign up (kartu kredit Citibank PremierMiles), you can get the points fairly easy and can redeem Business Class in a short time.

Also, if you are interested to know more about the calculation above, I will talk more in great details in the next post. Stay tuned.
