There's only a couple more days left to take advantage of the DBS Altitude Visa Signature Card Online Sign-up Promotion! All you have to do is sign up for the credit card online and spend S$800 from the date of approval (or 31 October 2015 - whichever is earlier) to earn up to 14,400 Miles! Here's why you should definitely sign up for the DBS Altitude Visa Signature Card over the next couple of days:
1. Earn up to 18 Miles per S$1 (for the first S$800) - Ended on 30 September 2015
Earning 14,400 miles on S$800 spend will net you 18 miles per S$1 - essentially one of the highest earning rates in Singapore. This is obviously just a one-off promotion but it is something that you can definitely take advantage of. Also, do note that the bonus miles (in DBS Points) will be credited into the cardholder's account within 90 days after the Card has been approved.
2. 3 Miles per S$1 on all online Flight and Hotel transactions
If you book flights and hotels online a lot, the DBS Altitude Visa Signature Card will give you 3 miles per S$1 for the first S$10,000 spent each month. This also applies to Online Travel Agents like Zuji and Agoda.
3. Two Complimentary Priority Pass Visits per Year
It has recently been clarified by DBS that the Priority Passes can be utilised for the cardholder and an accompanying guest. Lounge access in the airport can be useful before the start of a nice vacation to grab a quick bite or a drink (alcoholic or otherwise) for free. Do note that an accompanying guest will count towards the number of free entries each year (i.e. entering an airport lounge with a guest will count as two visits).
4. It may be better than the Citi PremierMiles Visa (or AmEx) Card
The DBS Altitude Visa Signature Card gives the same base earning rate as the competition - Citi PremierMiles Visa (or AmEx) Card - 2 miles for foreign currency and 1.2 miles for local currency spend per S$1. Additionally, both cards give two complimentary Priority Pass visits per year (if you do hold both cards, you will end up with four). The DBS Altitude Visa Signature Card stands out if you spend quite a bit online on travel and hotels (3 miles per S$1) and it also offers a pretty amazing 12,000 bonus miles signing bonus for a mere S$800 spend.
5. It's Free Anyway!
Well, for the first year at least, you will get a free fee waiver but on subsequent years, an annual fee of S$192.60 for Principal Card will apply. Paying the annual fee will however give you 10,000 miles (or 5,000 DBS Points) which may not necessarily be a bad deal for mile chasers. If your annual spend exceeds S$25,000, the annual fee will be waived.
