SQ Free Stopover on Advantage tix

Does anyone know if one book SFO-HKG and a stopover in SIN cost 120,000 in J Advantage booking? So I would fly from sfo to SIN and stay for 4 nights then SIN to HKG final destination. There's a free stopover with a one-way Advantage booking. Is that how it works?

I think that involves significant backtracking so SQ will treat it as 2 separate legs.

The lowest mile required is actually based on direct flight. SQ1/2. If u go via SIN, it will be two awards. SFO-SIN plus SIN-HK

Do you guys have a recommendation itinerary that involves depart sfo and destination is hkg but includes a free stop in between somewhere? Trying to include a free stopover but cant find one thats free or included in yhe 120k advantage redemption.

Sorry but I don’t think there’s any such routing from SFO.

Advantage awards aren’t the best value to begin with so I hope you have good reason to do that kind of redemption.

Yes, reason being no saver available. So if im going tobpay 120k for advantage instead of 88k in saver, iíd like a free stopover.

Lax-Nrt-Sin is 120k too with free stopover in NRT. However, i see lax-nrt-sin same day transit but SQ agent said i canít book it and have a stopover just transit same day. Otherwise, he doesnt see Lax to NRT leg available. If i book lax- nrt-sin online, wonder if they could change the nrt-sin flight to another day.

I tried a mock booking online. Origin should be LAX, destination should be SIN. When you click the advantage award booking, you'll be asked at the bottom of the page if you want to add a stopover. If you click that you do want a stopover, a popup screen shows you that the only available stopover is NRT, and you're asked for the date you want to depart from there to SIN.

I booked a Singapore Suites/Business Saver for 120k miles Phuket to JFK. Phuket to SIN is in business class. I have a 26 hr stopover in Singapore. Then I'm in the Singapore Suites from SIN to JFK. I didn't book this online. I had to call in for this. This was all on one ticket.

Couple of thoughts... see if you can waitlist savers for dates that work for you - even with the upcoming deval it will be better value than advantage tickets.

Alternatively, you can book the LAX-NRT-SIN-HKG as a saver J if available and paying $100 per stopover in say SIN or NRT or both.

You can do this online as long as there is availability.

Yups you had to do this on the phone because it involved mixed cabins.
