Singapore Airlines Krisflyer has joined the list of Ultimate Rewards transfer partners:
Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., today announced the addition of Singapore Airlines as its newest Chase Ultimate Rewards(SM) point transfer partner. A premier rewards program for cardholders that seek travel redemption alternatives, Ultimate Rewards offers flexibility, ease and value. Ultimate Rewards' new partnership allows cardholders to redeem points for travel on Singapore Airlines to destinations spanning a network spread over six continents.
Krisflyer is already one of several American Express Membership Rewards transfer partners:
Singapore Airlines gives you access to surprisingly affordable business and first class redemptions from the US West Coast to Asia.
Another great value is Singapore Airlines from the Russian Far East to the US Pacific Islands with just 17,500 Singapore Airlines Krisflyer miles.
Krisflyer redemptions come with added YQ (fuel surcharges) which varies by airline and destination.
I have yet to redeem an award with Krisflyer. I appreciate the added option (why does Chase have so few transfer partners anyways?) but it isn't a game-changer.
