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.
The first two days of the Lunar New Year will be on 5-6 February 2019 and while it is great to catch up with your extended family from time to time, some of you may be looking for a little escape (whatever your reason is!).

American Express is currently running a ridiculously attractive promotion for all eligible members across all participating Marriott properties - spend S$500 and get S$150 back in statement credit. There is now the opportunity to receive one S$50 credit for spending S$300 or more (in one or more transactions) at participating Pan Pacific Hotels Group properties before the end of 31 January 2019.
I recently wrote about the amazing opportunity to get S$150 back for simply spending S$500 at participating Marriott hotels in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand between now until 31 January 2019. If you have not signed up for this promotion, you should definitely do so because getting 30% cashback on your stays is amazing (and probably a very rare opportunity)! I recently completed a stay at The Westin Singapore and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the S$150 credit posted.

I received an EDM last night notifying me that my OCBC Titanium Rewards Card will now earn 30 OCBC$ (equivalent to 12 miles per dollar) on all bus and train rides.
