Same issue here, but I haven't called. Only keyed in the card # directly, not Masterpass.

have been using ANZ for years and now they want to discontinue it :(

I am using DBS Women's to top-up AMEX Imagine which has auto top-up activated. AFAIK DBS Women's awards points on Imagine which then subtracts the top-up from the card's balance.

I've seen recent reports in this thread about e-AXS transactions generating bonus points with the Citibank Rewards Mastercard. When inquiring about this card, Citibank told me they only offer it in a Visa version (i.e. cannot be used on e-AXS). Any thoughts?

Not aware they have stopped issuing the MC version of the Rewards card.

that's strange. i just applied and got both visa and mc versions. initially, they only sent me the visa version, then i called them and said i want the mc version, and they sent that to me too. this was only recently, in early january.

So for DBS altitide, it is 1.2 miles for every dollar on ez-reload? That is 0.6 points ah?

That's what I'll be doing as soon as I receive my Visa then. The MC is the attractive option since it can be used with e-AXS.

Btw, it's 15x reward points or 6 miles or 5% cashback depending on which Citibank card you're using. I use Citibank PremierMiles Visa for the 6 miles since most of my 'miles' are in that Citibank Card.

Now with the latest Expedia Singapore promotion 10% off with DBS cards, I wonder if it would be possible to use the voucher code to get 10% off and then use Citi card for mile?

Re. the UOB PRVI Amex. There is now a change on when the maxi cab limo ride is refunded:
"The Cash Rebate will be credited to the Card Account of the Principal Cardmember in respect of a Quarter within two months after the end of each Quarter"

Another improvement I guess...

Would someone be able to remind me when are the miles credited for UOB priv and UOB PPV cards? I'm seeing some rather weird amounts...

UNI$ are credited once the transaction posts (usually).

I wonder if they have a some kind of mechanism that only allows DBS cards for the transaction. Give a try. ;)

Well, the transaction went fine, with 10% off and it posted at citi as 'TRAVEL RESERVATION SIN PARISHOLM FR'.

Now need to check if 6miled/$ will be posted. BTW, when did they deposit miles?

You can click through Shopback to Expedia and use the promo code to get BOTH discount and cashback.
