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

    American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card / American Express International

    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.

    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.

    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.
