Singapore Airlines' Krisflyer program is back with a new “Spontaneous Escapes” flash sale offering 30% off premium-economy awards to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. Business-class awards are also available with a 30% discount on their Los Angeles route.

Singapore Krisflyer Spontaneous Escapes

Key Terms

  • Book by December 31st
  • Travel in February, 2019
  • Discount is shown after you select your flight
  • Premium-economy awards for 45,500-49,000 each way
  • Business-class awards for 61,600 each way

How to Book

Singapore Krisflyer is one of a select group of frequent flyer programs that offer more award space to their own members than to StarAlliance partners. In other words, if you have Krisflyer miles, you can book Singapore-operated flights that aren't available to those with United or Aeroplan miles.

You can search for Singapore award tickets by visiting this page after logging in to your Krisflyer account. You'll notice that the normal “Saver” price will appear without a discount on the search-results page. The 30% discount should appear in the “booking summary” box once you've selected a flight.

30% Off LAX-SIN in Business Class

Singapore is a transfer partner of Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou RewardsCapital One Rewards, and Marriott Rewards. Capital One, however, should be a last resort because Singapore is one of two transfer partners that have an inferior 2:1 transfer ratio (1,000 Capital One points are worth only 500 Singapore miles).

Although you should have plenty of options to acquire Krisflyer miles, there is one major drawback: Transfers do not post instantly with any of these programs. You'll need to wait for 12-36 hours, which creates a possibility that the flight you want might not be available when your miles post.

Our Take

This promotion is a great value for business class on the Los Angeles—Singapore route, and it could be useful for premium economy on dates with relatively high prices for paid travel. In March 2017, the Krisflyer program eliminated fuel surcharges when traveling on Singapore-operated flights, so the out-of-pocket costs should be quite reasonable.

At the moment, availability looks quite good for travel dates in February 2019, so this deal is definitely worth a look for those with travel plans to Southeast Asia.

    I want to get an award wallet.

  • Great to know, thanks!

  • Hmmm. I tried to find a Singapore Airlines flight from SIN to SFO in February to check availability and ease of booking. So I logged into my Krisflyer account (which currently has a paltry 250 miles in it) and began a search. The results were not good.

    On multiple days in February I could find only waitlisted flights at the Saver level to San Francisco. Then I found some availability at the Saver level on February 20 at 88,000 miles. As you indicated in your post, that 88k is not the discounted fare, and one has to go farther into the checkout process to see the discount. So I ticked off the little box indicating that I wanted that flight and I got a drop down box that said “Booking Summary 88,000 miles plus 70.30 SGD (Singapore Dollars). Still not the discounted fare. But I also got a message that “You don’t have enough miles in your account. You need another 88,000 miles.” And that was as far as I could get in the booking process, as the “Next” button was greyed out. And that is really troubling. The first issue is, does that flight at the discounted level really exist? I mean, it would not show me the discounted fare (which should be around 61,500 miles) unless I put more miles into my account. And how many miles would I have to put into my account to see the discount? The implication from the website was that I would have to put all 88k in before I could go further in my search for the 61.5k fare. And there is no way I want to transfer 88k miles (or twice that when looking for a ticket for my spouse) in the hopes that the discounted 61.5k fare is there (and would still be there in the day or two it takes to transfer) knowing that I would have to use those extra miles again down the road before they expire in three years. Uggh. The whole process seems not worth the effort.

  • Oops. Duplicate comment. Sorry

  • Paul Peterson says:

    OK, I need to read more carefully. The business class discount is only available on the LAX route, not the SFO route. Disregard my previous comment. I was able to replicate your February 13 discount screen LAX – SIN.

  • here’s wishing that this offer was available in September

  • ron_vaughn@hotmail.com says:

    good deal, but very narrow opening.

  • Great info. Thanks.

  • That’s a great deal. Thanks for the heads up.

  • Quite short time for the booking. Otherwise the offer looks good.

  • Really want to try their 1st class product

  • Although I do not have any current need for Singapore Airlines I love your posts as it causes me to have thought experiments as to how this or other deals could benefit me. I appreciate your posts very much. Thanks.

  • Cool promo, I have to check it out.
    Thanks for the post.

  • I believe your statement that Capital One should be used as ‘last resort’ is incorrect. Each dollar spent using the Venture card earns 2 miles which can be converted into 1 Singapore mile, so the actually becomes a 1:1 ratio when spending $1. This is the same earning as with Amex MR and better than the Marriott Rewards. It takes $30,000 in spend with a Marriott Rewards earning credit card to earn 60,000 points along with the 15,000 bonus Marriott gives you to then convert into 25,000 Singapore Airline miles— you only need $25,000 in spend with the Venture card to earn 50,000 miles which convert to 25,000 Singapore miles. So, you actually spend $5,000 less in the Venture card than you do with a Marriott earning card.

    Apparently these re-opened super long haul flights are not selling well for Singapore Airlines, which is probably what is driving this current targeted campaign. There are reports that the premium seats for the direct flights are on sale at even lower prices than the one-stop alternatives (JFK-FRA-SIN for example), which is quite unusual. GHG emissions impact is also potentially higher, given the all-premium configuration and extra-long stage length. The recent collapse in fuel prices certainly helps, but these flights don’t seem all that great from a sustainability perspective.

  • Sounds like a good deal but no immediate plans to travel I February. Thanks for the info

  • Would love a similar discount from SFO-ICN around March…..

  • Great deals, but a small booking window.

  • I’ve redeemed KrisFlyer miles, but never for a ticket on SQ itself! I need to change that.

  • The business deal is good, however after flying Singapore first, it would be hard to go back to business.

  • I hope PHX will become a hub for these flash sales one day.

  • Singapore is a great airline %30 savings make it even better

  • Singapore has one of the best products in the sky.

  • SIA is the best flying experience. thanks for sharing the sale!

  • Its a great deal if you can find award availability for business class.
    It has always been a challenge to find them.

  • couldn’t find a single availability for the dates i needed 🙁

  • Singapore airlines is the best airline ever. This is a great sale.

  • Merry Christmas to all of you at AwardWallet

  • Great sale, thanks for the heads up!

  • Love to fly Singapore Airlines!! This makes it better.

  • Looks like some good deals!

  • Another good reason to fly Singapore airlines. The redemptions are great from Australia.

  • great info. Thanks!

  • Thanks for the great deal tips!!!

  • It is the last day to book this deal for those who can take advantage of it. I look forward to retirement when I might have the time and flexibility to do this sort of traveling. It is good to keep in mind the fact that transferable points don’t post immediately to the Krisflyer account. I’d hate to lose out by not knowing that fact — thanks for the reminder.
