Supercharge your miles earning rate with Kaligo as you stay your way to a free First Class flight (check out the cheapest First Class flights out of Singapore on miles HERE!) - earn up to 10 miles per dollar on every hotel reservation you make on Kaligo (so long you use an eligible credit card issued by UOB, DBS or Citibank). While it is possible to earn up to 10 miles per dollar on equivalent currency across all three banks, the best one to go for is actually Citibank since it not only issues you the bonus miles and points based on per dollar spent, you will also get to convert these points to 12 different airline loyalty programs (as compared to just two on UOB and DBS).
Most credit cards offered by banks in Singapore allow you to convert your precious miles and points into Asia Miles and KrisFlyer only. While it is possible to redeem flights on various other alliance and codeshare partners, it is considerably cheaper to redeem miles on specific airline loyalty program sometimes - always a good idea to check an online tool like AwardHacker. Therefore, it is almost always better to earn your bonus miles from Kaligo on Citibank - I personally recommend the Citi PremierMiles American Express Card as it offers one of the best value annual fees for purchasing miles in Singapore.
Citibank allows you to convert your miles and points into the following airline loyalty program (kindly note that a S$25 fee applies for each conversion):
- Asia Miles
- British Airways Executive Club
- Delta Skymiles
- Etihad Guest
- EVA Air Infinity Mileagelands
- Flying Blue
- Garuda Indonesia Frequent Flyer
- Malaysia Airlines Enrich
- Qantas Frequent Flyer
- Qatar Airways Privilege Club
- Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
- Thai Airways Royal Orchard Plus
