It really comes down to different availability saver fares are harder to get but cheaper and advantage fares easier to get but more expensive however there are also a few notable differences.

There's one more difference: the number of free stopovers.

the main point of difference is that saver can have less stop overs. But in reality the biggest difference is that there is much more advantage standard award availability

I think the biggest difference is with Advantage you can nearly always get confirmed seats 2 and from, where as Saver often involves a wait list...
Awesome! Thanks guys I thought it was like Virgin Rewards or Any Seat! I guess not. I think that is quite greedy of SIA but most airlines are greedy!

I don't think it's greedy at all!
