As Japan Airlines (JAL) continues to roll-out the impressive Sky Suite III across the B787-9 Dreamliners and 777-200ERs, there is only two more days left to take advantage of the 35% off Starpoints sale with an eligible Starwood Preferred Guest account.
As you may already know, converting a block of 20,000 Starpoints to an airline frequent flyer program of your choice will get you 5,000 additional miles in most instances and in order to fully take advantage of this promotion, you should either purchase 20,000 Starpoints (to convert 25,000 miles into a participating FPP of your choice) or purchase 30,000 Starpoints and have another family member do the same before pooling them together for 60,000 Starpoints - you can then convert this into 75,000 miles which is sufficient for 3 Business Class tickets on Japan Airlines from Singapore to Tokyo and then another city in the region (e.g. Bangkok, Jakarta and Hong Kong).
Do take note that there is an annual account purchase limit of 30,000 Starpoints so if you have already taken the plunge previously, your account may no longer be eligible for buying more points. Otherwise, buying 20,000 Starpoints for USD 455 (SGD 627) which you can then convert into Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles is a fantastic way to get to Japan on Business Class for cheap!
