    Let me be the small dot in the Tao symbol and play the opposite side 😉

    2 exercises:

    1) How many miles you have to “buy” to get the same flight from Singapore to San Francisco. Which is cheaper? The heavily discounted flight or via the “free” miles route?

    2) Same exercise but reversed. How difficult would it be to find a discounted return Business class flight from Singapore to Japan. Which is easier and cheaper to secure?

    Hee hee.

      🙂 hello Jared. Think I can’t find a business class air tic to Japan for $1k at all so far. So in my view, using the air miles gathered from spending $$ that I have to spend anyway, is fine. I am frugal and won’t spend unnecessarily on my cards just to gather miles 🙂

      That being said, I did pay $488 for the 35k miles. I just account that to the $1k plus air tic.

      Always glad to get a dissenting view. Makes me ponder longer 🙂 thanks

      It happened last year, and I think also for year 2015. I am hoping it will happen for 2017, but SIA changed some of the KF terms this year. So now who knows,..
