How does Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card waiver work and are there any criteria one needs to hit in order to be eligible for the waiver of annual fee?

Hi! I'm a fresh grad who just started working and applied for an Amex Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card. Can anyone advise me on how the waiver of annual fees work? Are there any criteria or things one must do, to increase the likelihood of getting an annual fee waiver? My salary is rather low right now, so I'm really scared I have to pay the $100+ annual fee each year. Thank you!

    Actually you can enjoy the first Year Fee for both you and your supplementary Card Members waived for the first year. But generally, as long as you are spending even minimally on the card and are credit worthy they would waive it for you. It shouldn't be a problem to waive your credit card annual fee so long as you don’t have multiple cards from a single bank as they may not let you waive until you cancel some of the cards.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

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. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

Earn KrisFlyer miles directly with everything you charge to this card

The Amex KrisFlyer card is probably the best-known of all American Express credit cards in Singapore, and this may have to do with it being the official co-branded credit card of Singapore Airlines. I feel the main benefit is that you earn KrisFlyer miles directly with everything you charge to this card, unlike someother miles cards, where you earn in the bank’s rewards points, which then takes money and time to convert to actual miles.

Although rates are earned, they are very minimal and as low as 1.1 miles per $1 spent locally,

With the American express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer credit card, although you earn rates they are very minimal and as low as 1.1 miles per $1 spent locally, which when compared to as much as 1.5 miles with other credit cards. Also their 2 miles per $1 spent overseas packages appears to be only valid in June & December.

Ideal for beginner looking to become miles collectors

The Amex KrisFlyer Credit Card is ideal for beginner looking to become miles collectors simply because it’s so easy to use. Since miles are credited directly into your KrisFlyer account, you don’t need worry to consolidate your spending to try to earn enough points to convert into miles. There’s also no fuss and confusions with weird points systems, rewards catalogues, conversion fees and other terms and conditions.

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.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.
