Yes, both Diners Club and DBS cards do not give points anymore for IRAS property tax payment and there are NO cards that give points for IRAS payment.

The only good thing you can enjoy is to defer payment for the Property tax by 1 month when using credit cards to pay, meaning extend the payment deadline by paying to the credit card instead.

Rather than defer for 1 month, since no points are earned anyway, I have just opted for monthly GIRO to spread payments over the year.

+1 here. GIRO is the most convenient for any payment which does not earn any miles/points, imo.

If you have a Diners Credit Card, you can pay via interest-free instalment plan too:

M1 Internet Bill payment at www.m1.com.sg also have 10x Citidollars with Citi Rewards Card!!

16/01/2014 M1 LTD INTERNET PAYMEN SINGAPORE SG SGD 5.00

Charge made on 16 Jan posted online today 19 Jan!! Awarded 50 Citidollars!!

I suspect any internet payment transaction with SMS-OTP required will be awarded 10x Citidollars, regardless of whether it is an online shopping website selling shoes, bags or clothes (local and overseas) or not.

Anyone tried vBox? www.vbox.com.sg

But that would mean that you can get 4 miles/$1 for topping up Imagine / Fevo cards...? Someone mentioned that Starhub bill didn't earn 10x rewards.

Don't know about Imagine/Fevo cards and Starhub online bill payment because I don't have them.

But now confirm that SingTel mybill and M1 Internet Bill payment have 10x points with Citi Rewards Card.

I suspect www.vbox.com.sg maybe have 10x points too. But someone needs to try it.

If I use my Imagine Amex to top up an EZ-Link card for $100, would this be considered the $100 spend for the month to earn the 5% rebate capped at $5? Anyone tried this?

I don't think you can use Amex card for EZ-link top up unless you are talking about EZ-Reload which is automatic. But yes it would earn, internet, local or overseas spend would qualify.

Anyone has any idea on how sticky Citibank is with regard to its minimum income requirements? A friend was trying to apply for the Premiermiles CC and was told that high chance of rejection for not meeting their min income and the staff basically refused to assist with the application because income req was not met (even though it was v close)

OT a little - I hate talking to Citibank call centre staff. They are the worst staff I have come across with the worst attitude and worst follow up.

They're strict if you're a new customer. If you had a lower grade Citi cc with good spending patterns they are usually more generous.

As on the call centre people, it's a hit or miss - had encountered really good, helpful, knowledgeable ones and some really irritating lot.
