Commuters in Singapore can now add Mastercard as well as Visa cards to their SimplyGo accounts to enable them to use their credit and debit cards (with contactless functions) to make fare payments on the bus as well as on the train.
Last night, I received an EDM from OCBC to inform me that I have been targeted for 3.0 VMs per dollar on foreign currency transactions - while this is lower than the previous targeted offer that I did not get, it does have a higher maximum cap.
I recently booked the IAP Rate for Singapore Airlines in Business Class online and did not get 5X MR Points awarded - these have now been adjusted retrospectively but is this just a one-off gesture?
OCBC has just unveiled a brand new payment facility for OCBC VOYAGE Card Members - you will now be able to apply for the facility (which allows you to pay for anything that requires a bank account deposit instead of credit card payment) and earn 1 VOYAGE Miles per S$1. Now the only catch is this - you will have to pay a 1.90% or 1.95% admin fee depending on whether your transaction amount is S$150,100 and above or between S$10,000 - S$150,000.
The new KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card looks great but the only caveat is this - all the 'Accelerated Miles' will only post AFTER your card's membership year. This means to say that you will only expect to see your bonus miles next year!
American Express has unveiled a list of participating merchants where holders of the American Express Singapore Airlines Credit Cards can earn additional miles every month. You might remember that there was an offer that was release a number of weeks back that allows eligible cardholders to earn 4 bonus KrisFlyer miles per S$1 spent with mobile wallets - I visited Watsons the other day to find out if both of these promotions stack.
Most credit cards points and equivalent miles convert mostly to KrisFlyer (KF) Miles and Asia Miles (AM) in Singapore. It appears that DBS has added Qantas Frequent Flyer (QFF) as a Point Transfer Partner - members can convert their DBS Points into QFF Points at the same rate as KF and AM (5,000 DBS Points = 10,000 Miles).
OCBC has just updated their website to enhance the limousine benefit for OCBC VOYAGE cardholders (this is actually a real enhancement so good job OCBC!) - cardholders are now able to unlock a free limousine ride by spending just S$1,500 (instead of S$3,000) in a currency other than SGD each month!
I have recently purchased a duvet from The St. Regis Boutique and after being told that I needed to fork out another USD 74.46 (Economy Service) or USD 135.91 (Priority Service) for shipping (on top of the USD 80 shipping fee that I have already paid) due to a miscalculation on their part, I have decided to cancel my order and I have just received a refund on my Citi PremierMiles Visa Card. Now this happened over a period of a week or so I understand that there are currency rate fluctuations but I did not expect them to be that significant.
