Is it worth grabbing one of these Discounted Redemptions?

Normally I would value a short haul economy flight with Singapore Airlines/SilkAir at around 0.5-1 cent per KrisFlyer Mile which you can see from my previous post here.  With this offer Economy class redemptions short-haul give twice the value that they would normally do at 1-2 cents per KrisFlyer Mile.  This is much better value than paying with KrisFlyer Miles – see here why.

I checked the value on a couple of flights and found Singapore to Coimbatore at 1.6 cents per Mile and Singapore to Yokyakarta at 3.5 cents per Mile – which for a short haul economy redemption is great value.  Business class tickets will obviously do much better in terms of value.

Note that the 15% online discount is also applied and this offer is only for Award bookings and not for upgrades.

Conclusion

If you only have a limited amount of KrisFlyer Miles or are looking for a way to use up some expiring KrisFlyer Miles then this is a great option.  I would book early as the discount is only available on saver fares, and if you are booking waitlist then you have to be so before the 25th May.
