I would like to know what the annual fee for the American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card and how I stand to earn from my spend transactions?

If I am correct, I believe the American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card promotes a welcome bonus of up to 30,800 KrisFlyer miles when one spends in the first 3 months.

    Yes it is accurate that they offer a welcome bonus of up to 30,800 KrisFlyer miles when you spend in your first 3 months. Interestingly the annual fee of S$551.05 (inclusive of GST) is waived for the first year while the annual Supplementary Card Fee of S$80.25 (inclusive of GST) is also waived for the first year. As for earnings, you get to earn 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent on all your eligible purchases with your Card, 1.4 KrisFlyer miles (local spend) and 2 KrisFlyer miles (for overseas spend) for every S$1 spent above S$3,800 per month and 3.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent on Grab Singapore transactions, up to S$200 spend in each calendar month.

Earn 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every $1 you spend on all purchases in Singapore

This card allows for users to earn KrisFlyer miles faster with 2 KrisFlyer miles for every $1 spent on singaporeair.com, silkair.com, KrisShop and at SilkAir SkyShop, both in-flight and online. I like that a lot as I am a frequent flyer. Additionally, you can earn 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every $1 you spend on all purchases in Singapore and 1.4 KrisFlyer miles per $1 after you spend over $3,800 in a month.

No conversion fee and miles goes directly goes into your KrisFlyer account

This card has no conversion fee and every KrisFlyer mile you earn by using this card goes directly goes into your KrisFlyer account. There's no need to pay conversion fees or book your flights weeks in advance as all American Express and Singapore Airlines co-branded cards let you earn KrisFlyer miles automatically. Other miles credit cards like Citi PremierMiles Visa Card and UOB PRVI Miles Visa Card let you earn points which then have to be converted to Krisflyer miles plus you still need to pay a conversion fee.

Low point with this card is that it’s only for Singapore Airlines PPS Club members

The low point with this card is that it’s only for Singapore Airlines PPS Club members. Basically you will have to be a member of the Singapore Airlines PPS Club, and joining the club isn't as easy as you may assume. Essentially, you will have to make $25,000 net worth of travel bookings for suites, first class or business class on Singapore Airlines or SilkAir, within the space of one year.

American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire

First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

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.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.
