Hullo! Mrs NJ Germany got herself one of the above for the nice sign-up bonus.

Can anybody clarify whether (A) the 3 miles per SGD on overseas spend are calculated for the whole amount billed to the card per month, or if (B) you only earn 3 miles per SGD in excess of the first SGD2k spent and 1 mile per SGD for the first SGD2k?

I.e. with a total overseas spend of S$5k in any given month:
(A) S$1-5,000 @ 3miles = 15,000miles = Average of 3mls/S$
or
(B) S$1-2,000 @ 1mile = 2,000 miles + S$2,001-5,000 @ 3miles = 9,000 miles, totalling 11,000 miles = Average of 2.2 miles/S$ ?

A.

You should be getting 3 miles on all, ie (A). This card seems good for large overseas spend but it seems it is no longer available for sign-up.

If you are spending 5k, I would suggest putting $2k on the UOB Visa Signature and $3k on this to get a grand total of $2,000 x 4 plus $3,000 x 3.

Is this card referring to the SCB VI? If so, I see that the card is still available for signing up, just that the special promo of 40K miles had ended. 35K miles is current offer.

Yes the 40K offer was only for a short period shortly after they re-launched the card earlier this year.

I understand that SCB VI currently mileage earning is 1.4miles/S$ if monthly spending more than $2,000. However did the SCB mention is the earning rate on promo or fixed?

Current Promo until end of this year.

I think it was referring to a SCB Krisflyer - see post by NetJets Germany above.

I guess the landlord must join as a member as well to receive payment?

Kilian Zoll Jul 25, 16 3:21 am

Does anyone know if Paypal transactions (payment for goods or services) are eligible as qualifying spend to meet spend requirements at HSBC (Platinum Visa specifically)?

No direct experience on ipaymy.com but it's essentially "buying" miles.

$10,000 rental paid costs $275.00

Assuming this earns 4 miles per $1 it works out to 40,000 miles.

At cost of $6.875 per 1,000 miles. Not too shabby at all. ^

Not at all. As far as the landlord is concern, they just get paid by funds transfer. Only tenant uploads the tenancy agreement (to satisfy that the tenant isn't money laundering) and pays a fee to generate miles.

They main concern with ipaymy is that you send them $5K rent and they disappear with it.
