Yes, that was a very strange move by Challenger. Seeing those Paywave terminals replaced with... FlashPay?

It was good while it lasted though, and even on FP things were still ok due to the McDonald's card which gave a 5% rebate each month.

Also doesn't help that Best Denki is a SMART$ vendor... ;) :td:

Anyone happen to know whether Tiffany & Co. at Changi Airport is eligible for 10x Points (4 Miles) under the Citibank Rewards Card?

does anyone knows how the 5% cash rebate/$10uni for every S$5 spent on foreign ccy actually works for UOB Visa Signature? Does it mean that in 1 single month, if I spend S$1000 in foreign ccy, that S$1k should be sufficient to earn $2000uni?

Quoted from the website:
Cardmembers will earn UNI$10 for every S$5 spent on transactions in foreign currencies, including online transactions in foreign currencies, which is equivalent to 5% cash rebate, subject to a minimum foreign currencies spend of S$1,000 per statement period.

http://www.uob.com.sg/personal/cards...ture_card.html

That is correct, subject to a cap of $2,000 every statement month. Which is a very low cap in my opinion.

Ok so UOB Lady's card shows there is 5X on overseas and online spending on the main page.

However everywhere else only shows it's for overseas spending. I did some online purchases and did not receive any bonus UNI$ for it?!


"Get the most out of your travels and online shopping and be rewarded with 5X UNI$ or 2 air miles with every S$1 spent on your Card."

Anyone have any idea?

Tried topping up but each time it after the 3D SMS verification, I would get a message that the transaction is approved.

However immediately after I click to proceed, the Imagine webpage shows me transaction failed.

So now have a few hundred $ stuck in limbo. Anyone had this issue before?


To follow up - the amount was just refunded back to my cc account when the transaction dropped off. I believe it was 14 days. But it certainly took EZLink much longer to get back to me on it.

In any case I did get my money back.

ANZ no Christmas promo for 2014. HSBC & Citibank also don't have. Strange. UOB give some silly bag for S$1500 spend.

Only DBS, OCBC, Maybank, CIMB, StanChart have.

Yes I've been eagerly withholding my spends until ANZ communicates its promo, and patience is wearing thin.

FWIW, Citibank does have a promo, but is quite pathetic: http://www.citibank.com.sg/gcb/credi...CUZUENCHRSCALM

Citibank's promos are all discounts, not spend certain amount and get a gift type.

DBS's promo is the best:

http://www.dbs.com.sg/personal/promo...btnfindoutmore

Stand to win iPhone 6 Plus, Golden Village movie ticket, Watsons voucher, Swensen’s ice cream, up to S$5 cash rebates and more!

Spend min. S$200 in a single receipt and SMS to 76060.
SMS XMAS<space>DBS/POSB CARD NO<space>SPEND AMOUNT
e.g. SMS XMAS 4628450012345678 200 to 76060 to receive your gift.

HSBC's promo is out today, 16 Nov:

Some silly RWS stuff again....

ANZ confirm don't have any Christmas promo for 2014!!

According to the spreadsheet, payment at Din Tai Fung with Citi Rewards gets 10x miles. Why wld that be?

I made some changes to spreadsheet with regard to Guardian and Cold Storage for UOB PPV where 10x UNI$ will not be awarded as SMART$ will be awarded instead.

Anyone tried using PPV to pay for online car rentals? Will it get 10x UNI$? I am not hopeful since it seems to be under 'travel' or 'transport'?

Anyone tried using PPV for Courts online?

Lastly, if I use Citi Premiermiles as Esso to enjoy the discounts, will I also receive citi miles?

Hey lcpteck, thanks for maintaining the database, really appreciate it. I always refer to it before closing an online transaction to ensure I am getting the max rewards. :)^

For Citi Rewards no. UOB PP Amex should work for 10Uni$ if Din Tai Fung is properly coded with MCC 5812-14.

Otherwise if you have Maybank Rewards Infinite then it also earns 10x points so 4mls/$. However, personal preference is that I rather go to Paradise Dynasty Xiao Long Bao (Ion) over Din Tai Fung :). YMMV

hey vsepr, do you know if this stacks with the usual earning rate? If i spend $10,000, will I be receiving 14,000 Travel$ (the maximum per month) and then additional 22,000 Travel$ bonus if I qualify for the S$400 cashback?
