51% off miles required: Krisflyer Spontaneous Escapes February 2020

Enjoy a 30% + 21% off mileage on select routes for travel in February 2020 If you have gotten used to looking out for the monthly offer featuring the usual 30% off mileage redemption on Singapore Airlines, SIA has pleasantly surprised members this month with an additional 21% off the discounted mileage on selected routes to celebrate its 21st birthday. Highlights 51% is the best deal ever… so everything is good. Given that this will probably be as low as it goes this month, you should not be redeeming them for economy, but take this time to try the premium economy or business class products. Japan and Korea are both on sale this month in both directions, given that traffic during winter months are typically low. Taipei has never been on offer before, but it’s only available in economy class. Europe offers a vast range of options, a lot more generous that in previous months. You get a choice of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Milan, Paris and Rome, all of which are pretty attractive destinations. Full …

50% off Hilton rooms in Japan, Korea and Guam: 4 days only!

Hilton is running a flash winter sale for the rooms in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Guam for four days only, from 26 November 2019, 1pm (Singapore time) to 29 November 2019, 1pm (Singapore time). While the marketing spiel reads 50% off, bear in mind that this discount is off the flexible rates and not the sale rates. Also, non Hilton Honors members will only enjoy 40% off. On top of that, you will be slapped with other terms, such as non-refundable terms. While the sale period is tight, you have some flexibility in your travel dates. You can stay between 26 November 2019 and 30 June 2020, giving you quite a fair bit of dates to play with if you haven’t lined up any plans for the first half of next year. Obviously black-out dates do apply, and I will expect that the sakura season will be excluded given the traditional high footfall. What’s good? Tokyo traditionally has one of the most expensive hotel rates in Asia, so this is a good time to …

Alaska Air Mileage Plan sale now on again: get up to 40% bonus miles

Works out to an effective 28.6% discount on the miles purchase. Book now until 1 November 2019, 3pm. Alaska Air is back with a bonus miles promotion for miles purchase – this time round offering a 40% bonus when you buy miles. Note that the bonus is tiered: you will need to purchase at least 30,000 miles to trigger the 40% bonus. There is a limit of 60,000 miles that you can buy per transaction, up to a maximum of 150,000 miles (including all bonus miles) per year, per account. This limit is actually rather inconsequential, given that you can redeem air tickets for virtually anyone from any account. Having said that, status holders (MVP, MVP Gold and MVP Gold 75K Mileage Plan) have no annual limit on the number of miles which may be purchased or gifted. How much will it cost? At the time of writing, Alaska Air Mileage Plan is selling miles at 2.75 US cents per mile, not including a 7.5% ‘tax recovery’ fee. At a 40% bonus, this works out …
