Standard Chartered Unlimited cashback card is back!
A few months back when I launched the new Standard Chartered unlimited cashback card on my blog, it received overwhelming response with more than a hundred sign ups on this blog alone. As I found the card useful and attractive too, I signed up for one myself and received Takashimaya vouchers.
Today, I’m going to bring this card, in partnership with Singsaver, back to this blog again for readers who have missed it. This time, the deal will be $150 Takashimaya vouchers for new customers. For those who are not familiar, the Standard Chartered unlimited card gives unlimited 1.5% cashback on all spending. There is no cap and no minimum spend required. This is very different from the other credit cards in the market which only gives you points or cashback for certain types of spending. There is often a minimum spend too to be eligible for the cashback. This is not the case for this new unlimited cashback card. This card can also be used for public transport with automatic EZ-reload top up function.
Apply for the card through the below link to get your $150 Takashimaya vouchers (Valid till 31st July 2017):
For those who love to travel – How does Air Miles Work?
Do you love to travel? I believe most of us here travel at least once a year just to explore the world or take a break out of our small island in Singapore. The best way to travel and save money at the same time is through redeeming air miles for our air tickets. Let me explain further on how this works.
Many of us have heard of the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program which enable travellers to earn miles and exchange it for free air tickets or vouchers. Did you know, you can actually earn KrisFlyer miles on any spend locally or overseas which means you can actually accumulate enough miles for some good discounts or even free air tickets for your travel.
American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer
The American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card lets you earn 1.1 KrisFlyer miles for every $1 spend locally. What’s more, receive 5000 bonus KrisFlyer miles once you charge your first transaction to your card. You can use your KrisFlyer miles to pay for all or a part of your airfare on Singapore Airlines or SilkAir on singaporeair.com, or redeem vouchers for travel on Scoot or Tigerair.
Redemption of miles for free tickets starts from 7500. A look at the Singapore airlines website shows that an air ticket to Thailand is around 12,500 miles. You can redeem a ticket to Japan or South Korea for 25,000 miles and Australia for 20,000 miles.
In additional, you will receive $80 NTUC vouchers when you apply through the below link (Valid till 31st July 2017):
American Express Krisflyer Ascend Card – Get complimentary access to airport lounges and hotel stays
Another similar card which allows you to earn KrisFlyer miles is the American Express Krisflyer Ascend Card. This card has the same benefits as the previous card with additional 4 complimentary access per year to any participating SATS Premier Lounge in Singapore and Plaza Premium Lounge around the world. You also get one complimentary night per year with Millennium Hotels and Resorts worldwide. This card earns 1.2 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent on all your eligible purchases with your Card.
You also get 5000 bonus KrisFlyer miles on your first transaction and additional $80 NTUC FairPrice vouchers when you apply through the link below (Valid till 31st July 2017):
Citi PremierMiles Card
The last miles card I’ll introduce is the Citi Premier Miles card. For this card, you can earn miles and redeem on a wide variety of flights including KrisFlyer, Asia Miles, Royal Orchid Plus, Executive Club, Enrich, Infinity MileageLands, Garuda Frequent Flyer, Etihad Guest, Qantas, Qatar and Flying Blue. For every $1 spent, you will get 1.2 Citi miles. A check on the website shows it requires about 20,000 Citi miles to redeem a flight to Thailand, 25,000 miles to Hong Kong or Taiwan and 30,000 to Japan.
For this card, you will get a bonus 15,000 Miles on your first transaction and additional $100 Agoda eVouchers when you apply through the link below (Valid till 31st July 2017):
