Depending on how you define a nearby trip. Southeast asia or Asia? Or even to Oz or NZ?
For e.g. Thailand, you will need 21,250 KFM (after less 15% for online redemption for 2-way).
Based on your conversion of 14,400 PM/KFM versus $320 rebate yearly,
1 PM/KFM = 2.2222cents
So for 21,250 miles, it equates to $472.
21,250 miles is excluding misc tax.

It depends very much on individual.
For, me, i will try to secure a budget tic on offer to Thailand which will cost me less $100 and spend the balace from the $472 accomodation and dinning, sightseeing and shopping.
Yes, no doubt it is budget but i can see throught the 2hrs+ in view of the $300~400 saving.
yalor spending 17.7k to get a 2way to thailand like very -.-//.. getting tiger or jetstar airline are so cheap now..

u mean you make use of the pm to get rebates of your oversea's expense? (according to citi web 5000 pm = $50 rebates rite?)

hmm maybe hongkong/taiwan/china all these lor.. if SQ is quite ex but if budget airline quite cheap..

If i want to save for japan, a 2 two ticket for 2 x pax will cost how much? if redeem using PM?

you will get it on anything that you spent? That's more than 3% rebate. Which card is that? Can share? Thanks
it;s the UOB ONE CARD,

ya anythings that you spend,

you must clock the spending of $300 per month for 3 months = $900 to get $30 rebates that 3.33%. or $800 per month for 3 months = $2400 to get $80 rebates.

(think for every month you must have minimum 3 transaction to qualify)--> anyone can confirm this?

Hi there,
  • You need not fly SQ. It is possible to get a round-trip ticket from SG to NRT (Tokyo Narita Airport) at 20,000 miles from other airlines.
  • Do note that for Citi PM Card, every year they will credit 10,000Citimiles to your account if you pay their $180 annual fee. If you decide to waive the fee, they will take back their 10,000miles too. Thus, if you pay the fee for 2 years, you actually can get a round-trip ticket to Japan for $360
Just another way to look at things

1 Citimile = 1 Krisflyer mile

The following is taken on page 16 of Citibank's T&Cs here:
http://www.citibank.com.sg/global_do.../cc_pm_tnc.pdf

4.3 The cardmember can use Citi Miles to redeem for FFP miles/points at the redemption rate of 1 Citi Mile = 1 FFP mile (except for Asia Miles FFP where the redemption rate is 1 Citi Mile = 0.4 Asia Miles)...

4.4 The cardmember will be charged a S$25 administrative fee (or such other amount as may be imposed by the Bank at its absolute discretion without notice to the cardmember) for each request to use his Citi Miles to redeem for FFP miles. Each redemption request must be for a minimum of 500 Citi Miles.

Note: FFP stands for Frequent Flyer Programs. They include airlines under the group of Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Asia Miles, Royal Orchid Plus and WorldPerks FFPs.

For 20 miles, sure don't have de
For 20k miles, then yes, there is.
You can do a quick search online. Googling on the various Frequent Flyer Programs might help (see my last post before this).
