Business travel – revenue ticket to Singapore
I am supposed to go to Singapore on a business trip and can book a business class flight which my employer will reimburse. Any ideas on how Ican maximize the miles/awards from this booking? I have most of the major cards (chase sapphire preferred and Citi prestige) you write about and am also 4000 miles away from krisflyer gold although I’m not sure if it’s that valuable. I am open to a mileage run as well.
There are two ways to maximize your return on a trip I think. One, book with the right card that bonuses travel. In this case either the CSP or the Prestige work well with their 2x and 3x multipliers respectively depending on what you value/need. Second, credit to the right program. A long paid business class trip should net you a sizeable number of redeemable and status miles. You’ll have to investigate the earning levels at SQ and partner programs and decide what works best for your future travel goals.
