Apart from this, there are many other ways you could use these points. For starters, you could transfer your points to over two dozen airline partners for air miles. The minimum conversion rate here is 1:1. If you are converting them to Singapore Airline’s KrisFlyer miles, you get 1.25 miles for each GC Award point. Closer home, you can convert your points to Taj InnerCircle points as well. You get 67 Taj InnerCircle points for every 100 GC Award points.
Shangri-La’s new promotion is a good opportunity for Shangri-La loyalists to earn some extra points. Golden Circle Award points are one of the more versatile points when it comes to the number of airline conversion partners. So if you don’t plan on burning your points with Shangri-La, you can transfer them to your preferred airline loyalty program.
