OCBC 90 Degrees N Credit Card

Will using the OCBC 90ºN card via CardUp to pay income tax still earn 1.2 mpd, given the upcoming category exclusions/$5 blocks OCBC will be putting in place?

Yes, CardUp payments will still earn 1.2 mpd with OCBC cards. The $5 earning blocks have nothing to do with that.

Any chance of getting a waiver on the annual fee for Citibank Prestige card given current Covid situation? I understand you can't waive it under normal circumstances. Anyone managed to get a waiver?

To echo EC, nope. Citi is telling customers that it's the same offer as before- pay $535 annual fee and get 25,000 miles, or don't pay and cancel the card. It's surprisng to me they're not making a bigger effort to retain their key customers in a time like this, but that's their decision to make I guess.

Are there any lifetime annual fee waiver credit cards in Singapore?

CIMB Visa Infinite also offers a perpetual fee waiver, but requires $120K income. I really dont think credit card annual fees are a big deal. Most cards come with first year free. Subsequently, banks in my experience are quite willing to waive. If not, cancel the card and take up another one. annual fees shouldn't be standing in the way of you applying for an otherwise rewarding card.

Yes you can, there will be a fee cancellation fee of US$50-75, depending on the type of ticket you booked. You may ask for a waiver of the fee, if your travel is to an affected area.

Is the latest SCB 360 Reward points conversion to Accor Live Limitless (ALL) Points worth it?

Yes, I believe so. If you're well stocked with miles (which are very hard to spend in the current climate anyway), consider diversifying into hotel points (Which can be used for staycations at least) Read more: https://milelion.com/2020/03/17/great-deal-standard-chartered-offering-100-bonus-on-accor-live-limitless-hotel-points/

As of now, the Citi Premiermiles Visa will still earn 1.2 mpd on grabpay top ups. how long that continues is anyone's guess. re: 1% cb vs 1.2 mpd, work out your valuation of a mile and come to an answer: https://milelion.com/airlines/what-is-the-value-of-a-mile/

YQ for skywards is indeed insane, but some redemptions can make sense if you really really want to try the a380 shower. singapore to dubai has ok YQ- neither cheap nor outrageously expensive. read more: https://milelion.com/2020/02/25/scb-x-card-offering-100-bonus-on-emirates-skywards-transfers-is-it-worth-it/

How does the ICBC Global Travel MasterCard credit card fare against other credit cards specifically on overseas spending?

This really isn't a card you get for spending, per se. although you earn a fairly impressive 3% cashback on overseas spending, you could do better with miles cards like the boc elite miles world mastercard (3 mpd, generally held to be worth more than 3% cashback) what you should get it for is the 6 free lounge visits. that's an awesome benefit to have, especially when the annual fee is waived.

Although few credit cards offer points for insurance payments, two possibilities are the hsbc revolution or boc elite miles world mastercard. alternatively, top up grabpay mastercard with citi rewards visa for 4 mpd, then use it to pay your insurance bill
