Standout Redemptions

We love Hawaii so this is a no-brainer for us — use Flying Blue points to travel to Hawaii from the Continental 48 States. It’ll only cost 30,000 points roundtrip in economy. You’ll be flying on Delta metal but you’ll actually pay more if you were to redeem directly with Delta.


Redeem KrisFlyer miles to Hong Kong from San Francisco. Singapore Airlines is a fantastic airline to fly with and it only costs 63,750 each way in business (for now). They’re getting rid of the 15% discount come Mar 22, 2017 so it’ll be 75,000 points instead — still not too shabby.
