How much was the renewal fee ?
no fee, offset 25,000 voyage miles

there was an option of paying SGD192.50 with some Voyage Miles. I can't recall. Neither can i confirm this options are consistent for all Voyage Card holders

Is it for real?

Not avoid, it was offered by the bank. If i remember the 3 options:

a) Pay annual fee in full, SGD488 and get 25,000 Voyage Miles
b) Pay SGD192.50 and get no Voyage Miles
c) Pay SGD0 and use 25,000 Voyage Miles to offset

My spending last year was between SGD50,000 - SGD75,000

If a voyage mile can be converted to 1 krisflyer mile, 25k miles has an approx value of SGD 500k. Understand some people might value it less than 2 cents per mile, but still, the 2nd and 3rd options are poor value!

Ah yes

So, if we assume 2cpm,

option 1> no loss, no gain
option 2> loss 192
option 3> loss 500!

Option A is great since it gives you the same 'rate' as the S$10,000 annual fee option (for 500K miles). Hope to be offered that when my card is due for renewal!

I took up the 500k offer when I applied for this card, and sure hope they will offer it again at renewal time

They offered me that when I renewed last month. I took the $3,210 for 150k miles option though

Ah yes .. we need a SkyPesos equivalent moniker. KrisNoFlyer miles?

It can be done with the right planning and time horizon. E.g. I just plugged in random dates in Mar 2018 from SIN-LHR/CPH/BCN for 4 pax, and can find 4 SQ J R/T Saver award seats on several flights. US routes do tend to be more capacity controlled, and you need to be willing to split flights, legs or parent+kid pairs to find something that works. And then there are also *A partners like ANA to consider.

Anyone has tried to redeem the Voyage Miles for SQ KrisFlyer miles online?

My card was retained by ATM machine and they replaced with a new card with a new set of card numbers. I have been trying to redeem my points for miles online and via the Phone Banking System and encountered the following error:

SOA Service not available

The CSO advised me to wait and try at a later time. Is this error due to the replaced card or that the system error? Thanks!
