This morning I finally booked the homecoming leg of my honeymoon this summer: a sort-of holy grail I’ve been striving for since I started playing with miles and points almost a year and a half ago. Today, I booked passage for my wife and I on Singapore Airlines A380 in Suites class. For those unaware of what that can look like, feast your eyes on the amazing image to the left.
Yes, that is what it looks like: a double-bed in the middle of an airplane, covered in rose petals and a bottle of champagne. Now, I’m not sure we will get the flora but we will definitely enjoy the choice of what we want to drink, along with many other amenities.
The total cost of this endeavor should be around 10,000 Euro for the two of us.
Yes, we had to spend a butt-load of miles on this trip (transferred from CitiBank ThankYou points and Chase Ultimate Rewards Points) but we are going to get such joy and comfort by returning home in serious luxury. And, if you do the math, we are getting a pretty darn-good redemption value from those points (22.9 cents/point).
I am more psyched for the 5 week vacation I get with my wife, but now I also know we get to return home in style.
