Better to use UOB PPV as it qualifies for 4miles/dollar, as opposed to DBS Altitude, which is 1.5 miles/dollar + 50% bonus.

Good point. Also, Mileslife sometimes got promo that gives even better returns. Like now, thereís $1 = 2 miles top up bonus, with x 4 air miles promo bonus. When used together, base rate for dining expenses is up to 4 miles per dollar x 2 (due to top up bonus) x 4 (due to promo) = 32 miles per dollar. These promos are quite frequent now as the app developer is trying to build up user base.

plus sign up for free 1000 miles w promo code: FIRST1000 :)

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but is there a Credit Card in the UK for Kris accrual? Becoming frustrated with QRís silent cost cutting and the increased requirements to spend my VS miles.
Thanks.

I thought Citibank rationalised their rewards scheme to Thank You Points (the website, even though it may not have been branded as such for all cards in all countries) which allows miles transfer to a set range of FFPs including KF. Check with Citibank UK?

T&C explicitly excludes foreign currency transactions though. I find that odd and a bit unfortunate/useless for me...

Does IRAS accept them? ;)

Was going to cancel my Prestige (annual fee due in May). Guess I might keep it around one more year, 8mpd is nuts.

I was dreaming about the same last night... Imagine IRAS accepting Apple Pay. Haha.

Read the terms carefully. Foreign currency is excluded for Premier Miles, Prestige and Ultima only - not for Rewards!

I did read it carefully. I do mean to use the Prestige, which I just did not mention.

Just go sign up for an additional Rewards card if you plan to travel... :D

So where do people see the biggest opportunities for this if spending is limited to SGD in Singapore at eligible merchants?

i take it the supermarkets like Cold Storage, Giant and Fairprice are excluded? How about Redmart?

To me, paying for flights on the SQ and CX apps could potentially look very interesting, unless there is a catch that has escaped my attention?

Which of the cards excludes groceries? Does that include Prime Now?
