American Express has been extremely aggressive in capturing market share here in Singapore - they have unveiled the brand new metal Platinum Charge Card late last year and have continued to roll out amazing deals like the latest Hilton one which gives you S$200 back for spending S$500 (40% cashback!). Today, new-to-American-Express customers can get the American Express Platinum Credit Card for free - this card offers great discounts like 50% off dining discounts as well as complimentary free drinks at some of Asia's best bars.
If you are an existing American Express customer, you may also choose to sign-up for the Platinum Credit Card) to enjoy these benefits. While you will not be getting a free first year fee waiver, you will be able to get an additional 15,000 bonus Membership Rewards Points (can be converted into 8,333 miles) when you sign-up using my referral link - all you have to do is to spend at least S$50 within the first 3 months upon card approval. The S$321 annual fee will also give you a free 1-night stay at the newly-refurbished Swissotel The Stamford Singapore (read my review HERE!) so it's not that bad after all. If you are in need of a new suitcase, you will also receive a Samsonite Sigma 76cm Expandable Spinner (worth S$600) when you spend $4,500 within the first 3 months of card approval.
