    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

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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,

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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.

    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.

    Great customer service officers

    American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Ascend Credit Card / American Express International

    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.
