Most credit cards exclude travel or hotel bookings made on-line despite advertising 4 miles per S$1 for on-line transactions. For the longest time, men in Singapore have been holding the DBS Woman's Platinum MasterCard to earn 4 miles per S$1 on hotel reservations. To everyone out there (especially the men!), keep your dignity because Citibank gives you 6 miles per S$1 spent on Expedia!

From now until 31 July 2015, you will earn 6 miles for every eligible dollar you spend on Expedia!
Depending on the card you are holding, this translates to 6 Citi Miles, 15X Rewards Point or 5% Cash Back! Remember that if you are using the Citibank Premiermiles to collect Hilton HHonors Points, you will now earn 9 Hilton HHonors Points per S$1 spent on Expedia! Just remember that third-party hotel reservations will not earn you points on your stay. However, using Expedia for flights will still earn you respective miles!
It's time to save up enough miles to travel Business (or even First) Class to your dream vacation destination next year. In the example above, spending S$5,000 will give you 30,000 Miles which is redeemable for a round trip to Hong Kong (on Singapore Airlines). It is also enough for two return tickets to Bali on SQ! Just remember that you still have to pay taxes for these redemptions so it is always good to check out which destinations make more economical sense.
If you are interested in Hilton HHonors Points, spending S$5,000 will give you 45,000 Hilton HHonors Points which is sufficient for eleven (9+2) complimentary nights at the DoubleTree Johor Bahru!
