Maximizing GETGREAT star points (for KrisFlyer miles)
GETGREAT is a platform to earn star points. Star points can be used to redeem KrisFlyer miles, among many other reedeemables.
In my case, I use it on iOS in Singapore, and the objective is 1,000 star points (or 330 KrisFlyer miles). There are at least 3 features helpful to our endeavour:
FitAge can range from +3 (bad) to -3 (good) years relative to your actual age. Stars here are earned on a daily basis:
2. Daily Great Walkathon
Walking from 6k (good) to 15k (best) steps earns stars:
At this point, I’d like to introduce experience points, which in sufficient quantities (i.e., “level up”) earns more stars:
(At lower levels (of experience), it’s easy to level up, but progressively more and more (up to 1,000 experience points) is required.)
Experience and stars here are earned on a daily basis.
3. 7-Day Program
7-Day Programs are rated in terms of sweat droplets, which I’ll term as intensity (1 to 3). Experience here is earned on a weekly basis:
Putting it together, on any given 31-day month, one can earn between 496 to 775 stars, depending on participation:
|-1 FitAge/8k steps/1 intensity|
|-3 FitAge/15k steps/3 intensity|
A big caveat, though: stars expire at the end of each month., and must be redeemed 500 (or 1000) at once.
Some worked examples to clear out any lingering doubts:
- At levels 101+, leveling up thrice (3,000 experience) is sufficent; i.e., 775+(76*3) = 1,003 stars.
- At between levels 92 through 100, leveling up 4 times (4,000 experience) is sufficent; i.e., 775+(66*4) = 1,039 stars.
- At between levels 82 through 91, leveling up 4 times (3,600 experience) is sufficent; i.e., 775+(60*4) = 1,015 stars.
And of course, all unredeemed star points are forfeit come the next month.
