Believe it or not but the OCBC VOYAGE Card is where I have been charging all my foreign expenses to recently. Sure the BOC Elite Miles Card and UOB Visa Signature Card offers 5 mpd and 4 mpd respectively but I am currently in the midst of consolidating my credit cards - it also takes a home loan to find out how much unsecured credit you actually have. While poking around the OCBC Rewards platform today, I realised that you can now convert OCBC VOYAGE Miles into KrisFlyer Miles without a minimum amount (well, 1 is the minimum).
The OCBC VOYAGE Card is a great card to use overseas since the foreign expense fees are reasonable and it earns a decent 2.3 mpd - you also get a free limousine transfer when you spend S$3,000 (or two if you spend S$6,000) each month. Some of you may remember that there is no longer the option to purchase 500,000 VOYAGE Miles for S$10,000 when you get or renew the card but you may still opt for the 150,000 VOYAGE Miles option if you are interested. There are not too many credit cards in Singapore that allow you to convert your points (or equivalent) into miles for free so this is definitely a refreshing change from the usual landscape. I am personally quite interested to see how this card evolves in the coming year ahead to remain competitive in this ever-changing landscape.
