Is the sign up bonus the only exciting thing about the Standard Chartered Visa Infinite X Metal Credit Card?

I am planning for my wedding and would have loved to get Standard Chartered Visa Infinite X Metal Credit Card but my fiancée says there only special thing about the card is the promotional sign up bonus. Is that the only excitement to it?

    No Name

    Yes the promo sign up bonus was exciting and I am one of the lucky few with the awesome sign up bonus but considering its high annual fee it just has basic perks and I may not continue on my second year unless the renewal bonus is great. Also I feel the online user interface and points redemption can be made to be much better though. One last exciting thing is that Standard chartered EasyRewards allows X Cardholders to use their 360° Rewards Points to offset Travel Purchase Qualifying Transactions or to use their Rewards Points via Transfer Rewards to redeem for Hotel Partner Points or Airline Partner Miles.

    The welcome bonus with this card is quite mouth-watering. Simply spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months to receive 24,000 Membership Rewards points. That you will find to be enough points to redeem for S$110 cash credit. Plus you can see the points add up with 100% bonus points on all spend in your first 3 months of Card Membership. I have been using this card now for 6 months and am yet to find reasons to complain.

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

    The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.

    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.

    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.
