Singapore Airlines is offering a “Spontaneous Escapes” flash sale with award tickets available for 30% off on select routes / in select cabins (including premium economy and business class depending on the route) between Singapore and the US. You need to book by 12/31 for travel during February 2019. The good news is that availability is good and Singapore KrisFlyer is transfer partners with everyone, so it is very easy to amass the points for these awards — though remember that transfers to Singapore KrisFlyer are not instant. They generally take 12-24 hours to transfer, so there is some element of risk — though it looks like availability is quite good on this one.

There are definitely some good deals here if you have it in mind to fly to/from Singapore during the promotional period. Here is the table from Singapore’s site with redemption rates for premium economy and business class:
As you can see, you can between Singapore and New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles at sale rates in premium economy (this includes the direct New York-to-Singapore flights) or even score a discount on the nonstop Los Angeles service in business class (at 61,600 miles with the promo).
Remember that Singapore no longer adds fuel surcharges to its flights. Since Singapore KrisFlyer is a Chase transfer partner, Amex transfer partner, Citi transfer partner, and Capital One transfer partner (albeit at a poor Ratio from Capital One), it is easy to put together enough miles for these flights. Of course, you’ll want to think about opportunity cost if you’re trying to decide which program to transfer from. See Greg’s post from earlier today – Which points should you transfer to miles? How much does the transfer cost? – for help in deciding which points to transfer.
To check availability, log in to your account at Singapore’s website and simply search for it. Remember that the discounted rates won’t show until you select flights. Alternatively, use a paid tool like Expert Flyer if you have access.
