UOB privilege reserve card can pay tax and earn miles

If you have been secretly using Citi Rewards Card to pay at e-AXS http://www.axs.com.sg/axsEstation.php since 12 Dec 2016 and earning the bonus 9x points even though the 1x points is not awarded, you can stop already because since late Feb 2017, I tried 2x with Citi Rewards Card and no points awarded....

The Expedia Citi miles promo is gone right? no more way of earning additional miles on airline bookings?

I believe UOB still has promo until the end of March 2017.

I just earned slightly more than 10k miles last week for a last minute booking J-Class booking on SQ to HKG ($1,700x6).

2 more J-Class bookings coming up to CGK and WLG coming up in early March.

Is there an easy/smart way to see how many UNI$ you receive for a transaction ? I don't think I received 4 miles for my recent cardup payment but the UNI$ website doesn't make it easy to know for sure apart from guessing.

Many thanks

You guys have seen the LTA Mastercard announcement. Wonder how it works, do you get points on bus and train rides? If you are charged on your Mastercard directly, do you get a 10 pages long statement? :eek:

Easy way is check UNI$ IN your last statement (u can get it from UOB Ibanking), from there you can compare with transactions you made after that last statement

transactions after last statement/ 5 * 10 = total additional UNI$ you should get (if all transaction eligible) after last statement;

I email again cardup and they said still working with UOB for additional missing UNI$ point but i dont hope too much, better next month switch to other payment provider and pay with DBS WWMC

I would guess that the transactions wouldn't earn points or miles of any sort.

FYI, WWMC now awards the x2 bonus points for overseas transactions on date of posting. not reflected in TnCs yet, but already in place.

it used to be x1 + x9 for all online transactions, and now it is x1 + x9 for local online transactions and x3 + x7 for overseas online transactions.

"From 30 March, 2017 the number of Citi Points or Miles that can be transferred to a Participating Travel Loyalty Program must be in blocks of 10,000 partner points/miles"

since they charge us 25.- for that I really don't get why they annoy people with such stupid rule

OCBC Titanium rewards
 
Just wondering what's everyone's view on the OCBC Titanium Rewards card?

Is it a (slightly) better alternative to the Citi Rewards?

If I'm going to have a shopping credit card in my wallet, I might as well squeeze every bit out of it.

No point holding 2 cards of the same benefit in my wallet.

Thanks!

3.7 If a cardmember has more than 1 card, Citi Dollars earned on all card accounts may be aggregated
for purposes of redemption of Rewards.

Does not make sense to pay the $25 annual fee twice.

I was told you could combine. Guess it varies case by case hence YMMV.

Edit: I was told so, but have not yet tried.


Manage to combine all citi$ in one account.

I am using this now in lieu of my CitiRewards.

Electronics and Gadgets, Children's and Babies Wear and Personal Care is included, ie. more categories than CitiRewards.

Only thing I don't like is that the bonus points are rewarded in the following month so it's harder to keep track than Citi, and CitiRewards is very transparent on the rewards points awarded in each transaction.

Now we have to make our cards work even harder to ensure we get enough miles to travel.
