So guys would you advice a foreigner with a minimum annual income of $65, 000 to go for the CIT Rewards Card and why would you recommend CITI Rewards?

    No Name

    Yes I do indeed. Personally, I vouch for the Citi reward card. Citi’s rewards structure is for every dollar and if your spending on credit cards is huge, converting to miles is typically what people do if they have intentions of getting a biz flight or first class. For economy class the ratio is not that impressive as compared to redeeming business or first class. So once again yes highly recommended for converting credit card points to miles is good only

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

10X Rewards points on shopping all year long, either online, offline or overseas

My mother has been using this Citibank rewards card for many years and says what she loves about it is the 10X Rewards points on her shopping all year long, either it be online, offline or overseas. It simple makes her shopping more rewarding. Plus Citibank has an amazing range of merchandise for her to redeem using her rewards points, her favourite being to use her reward points to get Takashimaya vouchers which has no expire date to it too.

Prompt and hassle free in annual fee waiver and late payment finance charges

Citibank has generally been very prompt and hassle free in waiving annual fee and also late payment finance charges. Additionally it is the best in the market right now when paired with Apple Pay to give 20x Citi Dollars, with no cap, and 10x Citi Dollars on a good range of stuff. This is my number one card of choice right now, and if you have an iPhone, I highly recommend adding this card into your Apple wallet right now.

Bonus points are capped at $12,000 worth of spending per year

I hate to cast a dark shadow on this card but the only downside i notice is that bonus points are capped at $12,000 worth of spending per year, while points across all Citi cards don't pool, but please let that not be a reason to avoid the card as the benefits greatly outweigh the costs and I strongly recommend this card if you want to gain miles at an unbelievable speed.

I am yet to receive the vouchers for all the points accumulated so far

I really regret that I had chosen this card in the first place as it is not what I bargained for. I have actually never received the so-called vouchers for all the points I accumulated so far, even after I have raised the issue several times over the phone and even in person. Sadly all my efforts have been to no avail. This is bye-bye for me and any Citibank credit cards again.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.

Earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC

Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

Poor and upleasant hotline

I am a fresh graduate and just started my first job, I signed up for this card due to the onetime $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within the first two months. However for its main monthly rewards, it is nothing to be pleasant about and the hotline is very bad, I even had to hold more than 20 minutes during non-peak hour.
