Simply putting, if nothing interest you on ChopeDeals, you can use it to exchange for miles. The rate isn't that great.. but anyway the Chopepoints are free for you too! I usually just use it for their voucher and eat at one of the restaurants haha

Chope points are best used back in their eco system to redeem dining deals, so I won't do so.

I would generally do that - esp because I have other promos to not so keen on $30 promos on chope

If you have nothing better to redeem, then you may consider using it on KF miles.

Otherwise, the rates are pretty terrible to this end. =(

Here is everything about me and what I do best.

What else is worth it actually, given the new revamp? even assuming that you get a $30 discount code. by valuing miles at 2 cpm, it isn't that bad a deal to convert to miles?

To me, it just isn't. KF "costs" more than what I am willing to pay if I redeem them using chope points.

I would much prefer the chope points to go for their dining deals.

its more worthwhile for the dollar.

If you can't find a whilewhile deal, then of course krisflyer can be your last resort :D

I believe it is about opportunity cost - so you will be redeeming for miles in place of the Chope vouchers. If you are not redeeming for miles, will you be considering using the Chope vouchers? If you aren't, then perhaps the Krisflyer miles would work best for you.

Valuation-wise, it differs from people to people. So it depends on $30 off a meal be sounds good to some, but others may prefer using it on their miles instead.
