Everyone knows about the major loyalty programs and the general saving tips in the market. Miles are amazing since they allow you to experience premium cabin products without having to actually pay for it. With that being said, wouldn't it be better to get both miles and cash back though? Here are 5 lesser known ways that I have discovered over the years to help you save more money and earn more miles in 2017.
Exclusively for eight couples only, enjoy a unique dining experience under the star-studded sky at the W Singapore - Sentosa Cove. This first of its kind Valentine's Day celebration will allow couples to enjoy glamping while enjoying an epicurean meal prepared a la minute by the chefs of the hotel in the privacy of their on tents which will be situated on the W Lawn.
Mile accrual and redemption is extremely lucrative - it allows you to travel in a premium cabin (e.g. Business and First Class) for free (well, you still have to pay for taxes) - check out my experience on-board the Suites Class in Singapore Airlines. One of the best ways to start raking up these miles is to make small changes to your spending habits each day and if you enjoy eating out, traveling or simply enjoying the finer things in life, Mileslife can help get you on-board a First Class seat a lot faster.
Indulge in classic Cantonese dishes at one of the most luxurious Cantonese restaurants in Singapore - Yan Ting at The St. Regis Singapore. Chinese New Year (2017) goodies and takeaway favourites are available until 11 February 2017 - members of the Supper Club at The St. Regis Singapore can receive up to 25% off gourmet takeaways.
I visited the City of Sails back in November 2016 for work and as much as I wanted to stay in the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour (check out my review HERE!), the hotel was running high on occupancy and the room rates were way above the rates that I paid back in 2015. Since the meetings were primarily going to happen in The Langham, Auckland, I decided to stay in the property itself since it meant being able to sleep-in and get to the meetings on time.
