has anyone used the upgrade option on the Singapore Airlines website? I wondered what sort of cost is involved and how successfully it works

Where are you flying? If your flight has premium economy you’ll only be able to upgrade to premium, not business. I haven’t used the upgrade bid because I don’t want to find myself successful and in a middle seat.

A friend was telling me he recently did this on a SYD-SIN flight on the way to Maldives - and was successful for himself and his wife. I thought he was originally in Y but could be wrong? He was able to make a bid for business and was prompted with a suggested figure of $750 each. He bid that amount, was successful, and in the end was only charged around $400 each as that must have been enough to be one of the top bidders. He was very pleased.
