What are the type of transactions that are eligible for 10X Rewards with the Citi Rewards Card?

Can anybody here who uses the Citi Rewards Card tell me the types of transactions that are eligible for 10X rewards and what is the maximum amount of rewards that one can earn on 10X Rewards merchants/transactions?

    Hi! From my understanding, eligible transactions that are eligible for 10X Points include a Qualifying Charge made at any department store, worldwide retail store, shopping website that sells clothes, shoes and bags as its main business activity, usually determined by certain Merchant Category Codes (MCC). Also, a Qualifying Charge made at any online retail merchants, excluding mobile wallet and travel-related transactions. Eligible cardholders will earn 10X Points for every $1 charged in respect of a $1 charge at a 10X Points Eligible Transaction, up to a cap of 10,000 Points per statement month. After the cap of 10,000 Points per statement month is reached, continue to earn 1X Reward for every S$1 charged. There is no cap on 1X Reward that an eligible cardholder can earn.

    Poor Customer Service

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

    10X Rewards points on shopping all year long, either online, offline or overseas

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    My mother has been using this Citibank rewards card for many years and says what she loves about it is the 10X Rewards points on her shopping all year long, either it be online, offline or overseas. It simple makes her shopping more rewarding. Plus Citibank has an amazing range of merchandise for her to redeem using her rewards points, her favourite being to use her reward points to get Takashimaya vouchers which has no expire date to it too.

    Prompt and hassle free in annual fee waiver and late payment finance charges

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    Citibank has generally been very prompt and hassle free in waiving annual fee and also late payment finance charges. Additionally it is the best in the market right now when paired with Apple Pay to give 20x Citi Dollars, with no cap, and 10x Citi Dollars on a good range of stuff. This is my number one card of choice right now, and if you have an iPhone, I highly recommend adding this card into your Apple wallet right now.

    Bonus points are capped at $12,000 worth of spending per year

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    I hate to cast a dark shadow on this card but the only downside i notice is that bonus points are capped at $12,000 worth of spending per year, while points across all Citi cards don't pool, but please let that not be a reason to avoid the card as the benefits greatly outweigh the costs and I strongly recommend this card if you want to gain miles at an unbelievable speed.

    I am yet to receive the vouchers for all the points accumulated so far

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    I really regret that I had chosen this card in the first place as it is not what I bargained for. I have actually never received the so-called vouchers for all the points I accumulated so far, even after I have raised the issue several times over the phone and even in person. Sadly all my efforts have been to no avail. This is bye-bye for me and any Citibank credit cards again.

    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 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.
