Singapore KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Award Sale

Singapore KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes Award Sale

5

Singapore Airlines offers its KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes promo, whereby you can get significant savings on award tickets in select regions. During the pandemic this promotion had largely been paused, but it has been brought back in recent months. This is getting especially useful, with Singapore having largely eased travel restrictions for vaccinated visitors.

There are all kinds of opportunities to save miles on tickets in economy, premium economy, and business class, so let’s go over those details. Award costs are just a little bit higher as of this month, though, given the recent KrisFlyer devaluation.

Book discounted Singapore Airlines awards

Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program offers monthly “Spontaneous Escapes” deals, where there’s a list of flights that can be booked at a discount when redeeming miles.

Presumably Singapore Airlines is primarily discounting flights that aren’t anticipated to be full, and where there’s a lot of award availability. This can be a really useful promotion. One major restriction to note is that Spontaneous Escapes awards can’t be changed or canceled once booked, so you’ll only want to ticket these if you’re positive you’re traveling.

KrisFlyer has just published its latest Spontaneous Escapes list, which has a fair number of destinations on it, all for travel on Singapore Airlines. This is valid for bookings through July 31, 2022, and for travel between August 1 and August 31, 2022.

Not surprisingly this isn’t the most exciting list, given that August is still a very busy month for travel (hopefully the list starts to get better as of next month). Sadly no destinations in North America are on the list.

I’d recommend checking out the full list, but just to give you a sense of some of the discounted awards that are available (pricing is one-way):

  • Singapore to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Manila, and Siem Reap, is available for 16,800 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Darwin is available for 28,350 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, and New Delhi is available for 30,100 miles in business class
  • Singapore to Sydney is available for 35,700 miles in premium economy
  • Singapore to Adelaide is available for 47,950 miles in business class

The restrictions for taking advantage of the offers vary by destination. Some destinations are restricted to specific flight numbers, and others are restricted to specific dates, but there’s great value to be had across the board.

Singapore Airlines makes most premium cabin award space available exclusively to members of its own KrisFlyer program, so many of these are flights that you couldn’t book with partner airline miles.

Bottom line

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer has published its latest Spontaneous Escapes promotion. With this new list, you can save on business class, premium economy, and economy award redemptions. There are some good deals to be had, though there are no options to & from North America, sadly.

I imagine we’ll see more comprehensive lists again in the coming months, as summer travel demand dies down a bit.

Are there any KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes awards that you plan to take advantage of?

    Can one sign up to get this list when it comes out every month?

    Over 33k miles for a business class return to Hanoi, a 3 hour flight from SIN, not even lie-flat? Yeahnah.

    The problem is that Singapore Airlines has zeroed out most premium cabin award inventory on all their routes till next year so this promotion is a bit of a waste.

      That's really not the case, @EM. There's a hike in SQ points redemption just around the corner. And as soon as that was announced virtually all available award seats were snapped up across all routes. I know there was an acceptable amount of award availability because I browsed across Australia-Singapore, Singapore-Europe, Singapore-Asia, and Singapore-North America listings and saw it. It's first come, first served. Lastly, you may not avail yourself of this promotion, but that...

Being Australia-based, I could take the Adelaide or Darwin options currently promoted. Definitely not a 'waste' IMO.

    Well shoot. In SE Asia for a few weeks next month & I'm already booked in cash to several of these inter Asia destinations. If I cancel, doubtful I will use the credits before they expire. Would love to finally try SQ biz on a widebody shorthaul on the cheap. Bummer.
