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.

    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.

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

    American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card / American Express International

    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

    American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card / American Express International

    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.

    This card will only work for you if you are a wealthy Singapore airlines customer

    American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card / American Express International

    This card will only work for you if you are a wealthy Singapore Airlines customer. But if you travel business, first or suites class regularly, then The American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card is a good card to have. Not only will you earn 2 KrisFlyer miles per $1 for your Singapore Airlines bookings and 1.3 KrisFlyer miles per $1 for local spending, but you will also enjoy PPS club benefits.

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

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.

    Poor and upleasant hotline

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
