Have about 36K miles to spend, any suggestions of what it's worth? Flights or Krisshop?

Usually released mid month, & for travel only within the next month

eg book from 18-30 June, for travel from 1-31 July

The same will likely repeat in July for Aug

Any city(ies) in mind? Some may never appear under this promo.

Also 36k is ... not little / a lot of miles.

An idea is to do 1 way (business class) redemption & then return via commercial ticket (Scoot/Jetstar, etc)

Miles required for 1 way Business Class (For consideration) -
18k - Bali
30k - HK
36.5k - Perth

Sounds like a good idea (I was thinking Japan). You are very helpful. Thank you for the suggestions.

Tempting due to the discount plus about $270 off an iPad Mini Cellular.

Miles earned due to company business travels so I see it as free money to spend.

I think it really depends on how many ppl book full price .... kind of lottery
