singapore krisflyer spontaneous escapes

I know – heck of a title, right?

Singapore Airlines offers quarterly “Spontaneous Escapes” that I’ve written about many times before. They are always a pretty long list of award pricing sales but most don’t touch the US.

These deals all represent 30% off the normal pricing, but please be aware of the biggest “Term and Condition” which is “Any change is strictly not permitted for bookings made under this promotion. Cancellation is also not permitted for partially unused or totally unused tickets.

So, if you buy one of these no backsies, no matter the circumstance.

If you want to fly in Business Class from JFK to Frankfurt or reverse, you’ll pay just 56,700 miles each way. SQ has some of the best business class (especially the service) in the sky so it’s a great way to get to Europe from NYC.

If you don’t mind Premium Economy on one of the longest flights in the world, you can fly NY-Singapore IN Premium Economy for 56,350 miles or San Francisco to/from Singapore for 52,500 miles.

Lastly, (for the USA routes) you can fly LA to Tokyo (Narita) for 51,100 miles in Premium Economy.

Of these, I think the JFK-FRA route is clearly the best deal – though it won’t be as nice as my FRA-JFK First Class Suites experience from October 😉

Of course, you can transfer from every major transferable currency (except Bilt). You can see that in our master transferable point matrix and using “Singapore” as a filter.

What do you think of these Spontaneous Escapes deals?

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
