Any idea if paying local dining by Android Pay (using the Voyage card) will entitle us to 2.3 VM?

Does anyone have any tips regarding the ideal timings or flights to go for when redeeming the voyage miles?

Since last year I've tried to get quotations from them on several occasions usually for economy or even Budget flights but the conversion rates always seem too Low to be worth the trouble. I'm talking about value of $0.012 per mile and lower.. end up I usually booked the flight w my Altitude card for the bonus miles instead.

Am I the only unlucky one?

I dont think so, its the way the card was designed, more or less, esp if you are converting to econ, 1 to 2 cents is about there.

Have anyone tried using VM to redeem for SQ flights recently? Pretty surprised at the hilariously poor conversion rate- For a return flight to HK on suites which costs 75k KF miles (available seats, albeit waiting list for redemption), I got a quote for ~40k VM more from the voyage exchange.

Even with the perks of a double dip of miles accruals and it being a revenue ticket from using VM, still a pretty poor value (quite an understatement).

I never had the opportunity to use my VMs and was religiously consolidating my expenses onto the card (even for non dining/overseas spend, as I was allured into thinking the perks of earning VMs outweigh the additional KF miles on other cards). Guess that will remain and will have to clock my expenses somewhere else with a better value proposition.

Still a cool card though- would be great as a paperweight

It only makes sense when u convert first into Krisflyer miles.

Vm has immediate availability and you can still earn kf miles and qualify towards pps so the extra may be worthwhile

you gain access to plaza premium lounge by showing Voyage card.

No other cards will be issued.

Most (if not all) plaza premium lounges are under Priority Pass but Priority Pass includes a lot of other lounges as well (including Air China First Class Lounge in Beijing!). I guess you can say Priority Pass is more imba
