As such, you will roughly need to credit 217,400 miles to your KF account. With the 15% miles thrown in, it will be around 250K miles credited to your account, which works up to 50K elite status miles.

Based on your credit card transfer rate of 1.6 points to 1 mile, you will need to transfer 347,840 points to earn 217,400 miles.
Thanks for the very detailed explanation. Yes my bank is Citi but the transfer ratio here in the Philippines is not equivalent to 1:1
I may have to think about this really hard as Krisflyer miles have fixed expiration date.

Just an fyi for Q/TPPS - the transfers will trigger PPS awards at the various thresholds. Maybe that was obvious to some...but I hadn't expected SQ to be so generous with this transfer offer! Unlocking PPS awards in addition to the 15% miles bonus makes this offer quite valuable for T/QPPS members.

Yes, indeed they will offer PPS awards under this campaign for PPS members (though this is excluded for KF elite members where the rewards are not given). I have some that will be expiring in April next year and wondering if SQ will be extending. If not, I will try to use it for an upcoming VTL flight, if I can travel.

To get on the PPS treadmill - must spend min 25k, not counting mile transfer credits, right?

For a PPS member, in theory you could achieve a ~30% miles bonus with a 350,000 points transfer (at 1:1). This transfer would ultimately yield $40K PPS value and would correspondingly unlock the 50K miles redemption discount award. This would be a net gain of 100K miles (50K from 15% bonus + 50K redemption discount award) on a 350,000 transfer.

Fyi - SQ updated the processing time on credits related to bonus miles.

"Due to additional processing time involved, the crediting of Status Credits (Elite Miles or PPS Values) on bonus miles earned from this Campaign will take place progressively from 23 December 2021. We apologise for any inconveniences caused."

At least that's clearer, as opposed to its preceding amendment "14 December 2021 or such other date as SIA may prescribe from time to time"

Wonder why it's so difficult to run a query. Might it be a commercial decision?

From where did you transfer? I did two transfers, both from Citibank, none of the elite miles from the miles bonus have credited yet.

There seems to be, anecdotally, from people who transferred from different programs that they got the elite miles for transfers from certain programs, but not yet for other programs.
