If the 4 digit amount has been accumulated to a mid/high 4 digits (say 5k and above), you could consider the KrisFlyer Spontaneous Escapes. It's usually 30% off, or even up to 50%, for flights that are about a month away.

There is a great article on this by Milelion: https://milelion.com/2019/07/12/analyzing-20-months-of-krisflyer-spontaneous-escapes-which-destinations-are-likely-to-feature/

Hope you managed to clear these leftover miles!

If your orphan miles are in Krisflyer, you can look out for krisflyer spontaneous escapes every month. Recently, I redeemed a one way business class ticket from Bali to Singapore for 13,300 miles, which would have other wise expired if I did not use them as they are near the 3 year mark. Paid minimal amount of taxes and fees as they were charged in IDR as it was flying out of Bali. The experience was good as the cabin crew was friendly and polite. I flew Scoot over to Bali for the first flight.

Buy items from KrisShop.com @ 125 KF miles per dollar, subject to a minimum usage of 1k KF miles per transaction.

Here is everything about me and what I do best.

Best way: top up your miles to 7.5K and redeem a one-way economy ticket to Bali.

Other options:

  • Pay miles+cash for hotel rooms via KrisFlyer vRooms

  • Buy GongCha via KrisPay
