Not sure about others but if you find the stuff to be pricey, you can choose not to buy. In fact, you have no obligation so feel free to reject them. Instead, go to the actual charity they say they are helping and make the donation there. They will appreciate the gesture more and skip the whole middleman thing.

It is hard to say, "Best" as there are sooo many factors affecting your flight. Are you flexible with dates? Flexible with timing? How many stops are you willing to make? Is the reputation of the airline important? Is comfort important or you just need to get there? If you just want to get there with no restrictions, typically airlines in China have cheap fares to USA. Once you reach USA, take a domestic flight on their budget airlines like Spirit and/or Frontier. I cannot assure you the quality of the travel experience but typically this is the cheapest way i can think of. But it means breaking up the booking so you have to managed quite a few things. Another way is to check United website, and every leg of your journey will be covered in 1 booking. Hope this helps.

Krisflyer Saver: Cost you less miles but availability is limited. Definitely will tio waitlist if route is popular. Your travel plans have to be very flexible. May not necessary get the dates you want Advantage: Cost more but almost certainly have availabilty for the dates you want. To summaries, Advantage is paying more to secure the seat early and for the dates you want and have peace of mind. Saver is pay less and half of the time, pray hard you will get the seat you want at your desired dates.

Only the multiplier account. Your other accounts earn their own interest rate. Case in point. I have a POSB savings and DBS Multiplier account. My POSB savings earns 0.05% interest while the Multiplier earns 1.55% to 1.85%. How i know? Every month my Multiplier has interest deposited while my POSB savings has nothing deposited other than the end of the year.

You shld bookmark local travel bloggers blogs and read as much as you can. 2 blogs I highly recommend: 1) Milelion - https://milelion.com/ 2) Mainly Miles - https://mainlymiles.com/ There is no similar platform to Mileslife but banks run frequent promotions to enhance earn rates, like the recent 4mpd on transport for DBS Altitude cards. There is a lot of tips we can share but you might want to let us know how new you are to the miles game. Welcome to the club.

I have 2 articles here if you are interested. https://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0712/what-happens-when-your-credit-card-expires.aspx https://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/herigstad-credit-cards-expiration-date-1294.php Bascially 2 things: 1) Wear and tear. Our credit card is actually quite complicated, holding a lot of information. But as time pass and with frequent use, the card itself will spoil as they are not built to last forever. Expiry date gives the bank a chance to give you a new card. Your credit card account remains active. 2) Prevent fraud. I think it is rather self explanatory for this.

To be honest, it is a rather personal/subjective question that no one can answer perfectly. If you want to take out the money to pamper yourself, that is fine. If you don't want, that is fine too. Life is short and unpredictable. Do whatever makes you happy is what I believe in. Cheers.

Are you team miles or team cashback? Team miles would be DBS WMMV (4mpd, capped at 2K) or DBS Altitude Card (3mpd, capped at 5K using their dedicated link) Team cashback would be the one with the highest as long as you hit the card minimum spent.

Short answer, it is automatically linked as long as it is opened under your name. The system is smart enough to recognise it. To make sure, you can go POSB iBanking site, go to "My Account" tab, click on the "Bank and Earn Summary" and it will give you a snapshot of your Multiplier account and any automatically linked credit card.
