Hi Point Hacks Community,
I’m relatively new to this whole points thing.
We have a small family business and my dad has jacked up a good amount of points on the the American Express card and I have permission to use them. Several family members (3adults, 2 kids, 1 infant) are looking to make the trek from Auckland to Delhi, most likely via Malaysia or Singapore. Must go early December 2018 to early Jan 2019 (attending wedding on 6 Jan). However I am quite confused as there are a number of different ways to book and I’m trying to work out the best. On Singapore airlines the total cost of flights for all would be around $8285 NZD.
The options are as follows:
(1) Directly through the American Express website (seems to be 1 point = .075 - a little bit under one cent)
(2) Hello World (1 point = .075)
(3) Web Jet (1 point = .075)
(4) Transfer points to either Singapore Airlines or Air NZ. Both 2 points for 1 mile. I don’t have existing accounts and so can’t work out how many miles I need.
I am finding it difficult to assess how may miles I would need if I transferred the points to Singapore Airlines.
I would really appreciate any tips on what option is the best, and any pointers on how many Krisflyer miles I would need if I transferred points.
Thanks guys! I look forward to any replies.
