May be a good idea to redeem points for miles quickly so they don't have anything to take back?

Definitely. And keep checking the UNI$ regularly, because it wouldn't be surprising if they send it into negative figures and just wait until you make the balance up.

I don't see any "adjustment" on my latest statement. Have you called them to find out if this is really pertaining the EZ Link? If so, is it for manual top-ups or EZ reload?

How did you determine this? Was this shown on your latest statement?

I haven't checked my statement yet but if PPV miles are indeed retracted, there would have been at least 20K evaporated. Didn't notice something like it when I checked and redeemed 3 days ago. In fact was surprised that my UNI$ balance went up unexpectedly quite fast.

My statement won't come till early April so the last statement is anyway before the 19 march you were saying.

I wonder if they have been reading this thread and covering all the loopholes we have discovered.

Does anyone know if transactions on Groupon SG are considered "online" in the context of UOB PPV and DBS WMC?

Maybe. But I reckon they monitor HWZ more intently as definitely more beans are typically spilled on that forum...

My statement came 23rd March and no such issue. Just checked and my uni$ balance is still the same.

Is there any real benefit for me to apply for Citi Premiermiles??

I currently hold UOB PRVI, PPV, PPAmex, ANZ Travel, Maybank Horizon Platinum.

I am thinking of Citi Premiermiles to replace my Maybank Horizon Platinum At 2miles per $1 spend, the redemption rate is the same as Maybank. Now that Maybank no longer offer free miles conversion I am reluctant to spend with them anymore.

Aster, please update post 1 to reflect the $25 charge for Maybank Horizon Platinum.

ETA to add - after I wrote this post, Citibank called me up to ask me if I am interested in the Premiermiles card. However, they are not offering anything other than the fee waiver and insist that I have to apply for 2 credit cards + Ready Credit in order to qualify for the free gift. The frustrating thing is that they mentioned the welcome gift upfront that will get if I apply for the card, then proceeded to sell me the Ready Credit then proceeded to sell me another card and then told me no free gift if I dun apply for all 3 products. Such dodgy selling tactics. I rather walk into a branch straight and get my card straightaway and give the commission to the branch staff who serve me than these telemarketers.

Do you have a link to this promotion? I can only find this one - http://www.citibank.com.sg/global_do...t13/TNC_s5.pdf

However it has ended in January 2014.
