    You get to earn when you Spend In CapitaLand Malls as much as 5 STAR$ for every S$1 spend. Additional 10 STAR$ will be awarded on eligible purchases of goods and services in blocks of S$1, on a cumulative basis at the end of every calendar month, capped at S$1,200 per calendar month at participating merchants in participating CapitaLand Malls. You can also get to earn an additional 10X STAR$ at participating dining and retail outlets across participating Capitaland Malls. Receive 50 STAR$ for every S$1 spent on your American Express CapitaCard – this is on top of the 3X STAR$ that you earn across participating merchants at CapitaLand Malls. As for referrals, you receive 50,000 STAR$ when you successfully refer a friend and your friend receives 50,000 STAR$ upon spend of S$50 in the first 3 months of Card Membership.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.

I received $20 CapitaVouchers as the sign up bonus,

The American express CapitaCard is my first credit card and I find the sign up bonus attractive as I received $20 CapitaVouchers, which come in the form of STAR$ after being referred by my friend while my friend would receive S$30 CapitaVouchers also in the form of STAR$ after referring to me. Besides that, you can get to earn STAR$ points when shopping at Capitalmalls.

Good for families that spend most of their time in capitaland mall for the free carpark

I feel this card is only worth its onions because of the sign up bonus. However subsequently, it might be good for families that spend most of their time in capitaland mall for the "free carpark". Pretty much this card offers features that revolve your life around capitaland malls and if you are not excited by that then you could try other cards. By the way this is the only credit card that can be used to purchase capita vouchers

Receive a lot of capitastar points when spending with this card

It feels quite good to receive a lot of capitastar points when spending with this card, but still it is not really worth it to convert points to capitamall vouchers and other in-app deals are more value for money. I actually held this card for close to one year when Amex decided to charge me annual fee for second year and couldn't waive it because my spending wasn't high enough to justify the waiver, I converted it to the true cashback card.

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.

Customer care service at top notch

This is my first credit card and I was pleased with the process as the application was absolutely stress free and smooth with customer care service at top notch. I actually felt taken care of and it appeared I could rely on customer care service for virtually any issue. Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

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.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.
