Will you buy 10 sets of iphone xs max on Krisflyer shop then sell it to ah Beng shop?

Anyway this is just a discussion

If let's say already enjoy?

I know someone who spend $1m on each month on dbs altitude and he got so many dbs points each month that he doesn't know how to spend it

Many people here are willing to pay you 1.5 cents per Krisflyer mile if you offer

1) You can book trips up to about 11 months in advance.

2) If someone is spending $1m each month on dbs altitude, then the person is spending on the wrong card. Even if it doesn't qualify for the 4mpd spending, there are other cards that offer 1.4mpd for general spending. Or I'd prefer Citibank premier miles at 1.2mpd that offers transfer to more airlines for more options of redemption, why restrict yourself to only Krisflyer?

3) RTW trips for the family can be quite good redemption option, pending availability.

4) Miles for iPhone is a terrible use of miles, especially if you sell to ah beng shop and not get the full value of the phone back. $2195.33 for 274416 miles, that is $0.008 per mile. At 1.2mpd, you are getting only 0.96% cash back value (assuming full value of phone).

So beside "selling miles", which is quite highly unlikely as his nomination list are already his family members

Is there any other more efficient method to spend the dbs points or Krisflyer
