SingSaver is currently running a Battle of Cards campaign and it spans across three categories and periods. Each 'battle' (in the field of Travel, Cashback and Rewards) comes with four credit cards that you can choose from and most of these credit cards come with a SingSaver exclusive gift (this means to say that you will not get this bonus if you apply for the card elsewhere). From now until 12 May 2019, apply for at least one of the cards in the travel battle to stand a chance to win S$50 (if you pick the most popular credit card) and 50,000 KrisFlyer Miles (grand prize).
There are four credit cards to pick from in the travel battle and they are the Citi PremierMiles Visa Card, UOB PRVI Miles Visa Card, the American Express KrisFlyer Ascend Card and the Standard Chartered Visa Infinite. You will notice that each one of these credit cards come with its own strengths (in terms of mileage accrual rate) and weaknesses. it is also important to check out the SingSaver-exclusive gifts that you can get from each successful card application (do note that different gifts apply depending on whether you are a new-to-bank customer).
If you do not hold an American Express card and have been considering one, the American Express KrisFlyer Ascend Card is a great way to chalk up miles if you do not plan on holding too many credit cards. While the annual fee of S$337.05 cannot be waived in the first year, you do get a few nice perks (which are great if you are new to the whole miles and hotels game) like a complimentary night in any participating Hilton hotel in Asia-Pacific, Silver Elite status in the Hilton Honors program as well as 4 lounge passes which you can use when you travel.
More importantly, the American Express KrisFlyer Ascend Card allows you to earn 30,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles when you spend S$10,000 in the first 3 months and another S$10,000 in the following three months. These bonus miles are awarded on top of the base earn rate for this credit card - you will also earn 3.2 KrisFlyer miles per dollar at selected merchants (e.g. Starbucks, Grab) and get access to lucrative cardmembers-only offers like Spend S$300, get S$60 back at Hilton properties from time to time. While SingSaver applicants do get an additional 6,500 bonus KrisFlyer miles (on top of whatever American Express is offering) when they spend S$10,000 within the first 3 months after approval, you may also wish to consider using my special referral link which allows you to earn 7,500 bonus KrisFlyer Miles for spending just S$50 in the first 3 months.
In order to win the grand prize of 50,000 KrisFlyer Miles (which is sufficient for a return trip to Tokyo in Economy Class or a one-way trip to Tokyo in Business Class), you will have to tell SingSaver why you think the card that you have applied for will win the battle! The most creative answer for each battle (Travel/Cashback/Rewards) wins a return trip to Tokyo (awarded in KrisFlyer miles).
