Monday News: Book the New Singapore Suites, 10x Miles for Apple, Book Air France/KLM with Qantas, 25% Lifemiles Bonus Ends
Long title, I know. But here’s what you need to know for Monday:
Fly the NEW Singapore Suites LON-SIN
Mainly Miles reports on a lot of saver space that is currently available on the London to Singapore route in the “New” First Class. I think this new product looks absolutely beautiful and wish it was on the JFK-FRA route (which has the old First Suites) or the EWR-SIN route (but that has no First Class at all). The space is available for July/August 2020 and is *plenty* of time to enjoy the experience. Check that post for all the specifics and good luck! Keep in mind that you can *generally* ask Singapore to hold the space for you. If they say no, try again. It takes 1-2 days for most transferable points to get to SQ and the space could be gone then. You can only book this with Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles, but the good news is you can transfer to Singapore KrisFlyer from pretty much everywhere.
10X Miles with Apple Purchases
The AA Shopping Portal is offering 10x miles today on Apple purchases. UA is 8X. If you’re thinking about a new MacBook , iPad, or iWatch, this is a good day for you.
Air France and KLM are Now Bookable with Qantas Miles
It’s really only interesting from the perspective that Qantas has had a couple of recent transfer bonuses, but in general you will be better off just using the Flying Blue program which is also a transfer partner of most credit card currencies.
Last Days for 25% Transfer Bonus from Citi ThankYou points to Avianca Lifemiles
The 25% transfer bonus from Citi to Avianca Lifemiles ends Dec 11th, Wednesday. I advise against purely speculative transfers but if you have a near term need, it’s a nice bump. Avianca Lifemiles expire after 12 months but you can extend their life by either 1) transferring in 1,000 miles before 365 days (or any activity) or by having a Avianca Lifemiles credit card which gives you 24 months.
You can find credit cards that best match your spending habits and bonus categories at Your Best Credit Cards.
