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.
Singapore is a transfer partner of Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards, Capital 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.
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.
