Everyone of us must have at some point of life, seen this iconic American Express® Personal Card (or more intimately known as the Green Card). To mark American Express®'s 90th year of operations in Singapore (as well as the nation's jubilee year), the American Express® Personal Card will be available for application from 30 November 2015!
Similar to its more superior brothers and sisters - the Platinum Charge Card and the Centurion, the American Express® Personal Card is unlike the regular credit cards. The charge card requires full settlement at the end of each billing period (so, no rolling your debt over!). Here are the Membership Reward points accrual rates:
- 2 MR Points for every S$1.60 Spent
- 5 MR Points for every S$1.60 Spent at Starbucks, Jasons Market Place, Kinokuniya, Amazon and EpiCentre
Check out the roadshow at Chevron House between 30 November 2015 and 04 December 2015 (10:30AM to 07:30PM) where you'll be able to enjoy complimentary coffee and an American Express gift (while stocks last). The first 1,000 approved Principal Card Member will receive a limited edition gold American Express® Gift Cheque with a face value of US$25.
The minimum income requirement is S$30,000 p.a. for Singapore Citizens and Residents, and S$60,000 p.a. for Expatriates. The Annual Fee is S$120 for the principal card and S$75 per supplementary card (up to two supplementary cards).

Earlier this morning, I wrote about the rumours that have been floating around the internet about Mileslife’s suspected shutdown in China - I have managed to get hold of the founder and CEO of Mileslife today and he has confirmed that the China business is not closed.
If you have been using Mileslife conscientiously, you may realise that certain functionality have stopped working as of yesterday (or even earlier!). There are rumours floating around the internet that the app has been shutdown and businesses in China are owed plenty of money (this has not been verified but that is what I am hearing from the grapevine).
