    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.

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.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

My family had a really fun time with the 10% off Siam Adventure Club Family Package Booking which came with breakfast for 2 adults and up to 2 kids with a Kids room setup in room and full access to kids activities. We even enjoyed daily evening drinks for whole family on selected menu from 5pm to 6pm.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

Pleasant Rewards

In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful
