The Citi Rewards Card is one of the best credit cards in Singapore to hold in my opinion - it offers 4 miles per dollar on shopping expenses (this includes spend in departmental stores as well) and from time to time it partners up with a merchant to offer 20X Rewards which is equivalent to a whooping 8 miles per S$1. From now until the end of 31 December 2017, cardholders will be able to earn 8 miles per dollar on all eligible transactions made on Lazada or via the Amazon Prime Now App.
Rewards points (which can be converted into miles at a nominal fee) earned on the Citi Rewards Card are valid for five years so there is ample time for you to accrue them. Miles and points earned on Citibank are typically the most valuable since it allows you to convert them into a wide range of Frequent Flyer Program (13 programs versus one or two that the local banks offer). Similar to previous promotions, the maximum number of bonus Rewards points that you can earn from this promotion is 20,000 bonus Rewards points per statement period (S$2,000 worth of bonus spending). It appears that the Lazada and Amazon Prime Now offers are separate and have their own set of bonus points cap per statement period.
