Got the email a few times on my long flights. Bidded a small amount just to try my luck, but wasn’t successful. My guess is that the successful bids will be quite close to the actual number of miles required to upgrade anyway.

certain flights which has Eco + Pre.Eco + Biz + 1st class or Eco + Pre.Eco + Biz, will only allow upgrade to the next available class.

so Eco >>> Pre.Eco >>> Biz >>> 1st class

I don't bother to upgrade from SQ Eco to Pre.Eco

but if my ticket is Pre.Eco... I will just try my luck to up to Biz

Don't bother on the Premium Economy, the difference not much, you get slightly better meals (If you choose Book The Cook), a little better leg room, slightly bigger screen.

I rather pay for emergency exit row seats vs bidding for it, because it's guaranteed.

I bid before to upgrade Economy to Premium. My bid was the lowest amount at $90. I got the upgrade. For a 7 hrs flight,i would say its worth it for me.

I don't like the SQ Premium economy product. The seat layout is not fantastic. If I'm on the aisle seat, I still need to let the middle person out to use the toilet. No difference from the economy class product on the same aircraft.
Their economy class is comfortable enough for me even on my Europe SG flights as compared to other airlines.

I noticed that they tend to offer the bid to solo traveller. If in a group, no chance.

Booked PE one way from Shanghai to sin, not worth it imo. Price was cheaper than econ, but i won't bid/purchase to PE in future.

Why not worth it? What were the issues?
