Singapore Airlines and Marriott have joined forces to encourage some staycations in the city. Members of Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program who chose to earn KrisFlyer Miles in their Marriott Bonvoy accounts will net 1,000 KrisFlyer Miles per stay. This is an ideal bonus for one night stays (or multiple night stays that have low rates) as normally the KrisFlyer program earns 1 to 2 miles per US$ spent on Marriott stays. The three Singapore hotels that are part of this promotion are all 2 miles/$ so you can use that as a comparison. The three hotels that are part of this promotion are:
The promotion also offers 10% off at these locations for stays on Sundays to Thursdays. We took a quick look at the St. Regis Singapore, you can get a one night stay in the middle of October for 306SGD which is about US$225. That works out to about 550 bonus KrisFlyer Miles over the 450 you’d earn on the spend. As you can also see the 306SGD rate is matches the best rate for Bonvoy members.
Now, ideally if you stay between now and October 18 you are better off earning Marriott Bonvoy points thanks to the systemwide promotion of 2,500 bonus points per stay. The same stay above would earn 4,750 points at a minimum (2,250 base points + 2,500 bonus points) which when converted from Marriott to KrisFlyer at a 3:1 ratio works out 1,583 miles.
1,000 KrisFlyer Miles for stays at the any one of three Marriott Hotels in Singapore. Also receive 10% off on Sunday to Thursday nights. Full details & online booking. Until Dec 30, 20
