Standard Chartered Visa Infinite X Credit Card

Asked on 03 Jan 2020
Just came across Milelion's post about SCB reducing their sign up bonus for the X card from 60,000 (pay the annual fee of $695 and spend $6k within 60 days) to 30,000 (pay the annual fee of $695), w.e.f. Jan 2020.
May I ask, if I have already signed up and gotten the card in Dec 2019, but have yet to charge $6k and pay the annual fee, am I still eligible for the 60,000 sign up bonus if I manage to hit the $6k spend and pay the annual fee within 60 days of getting the card?

I'd refer you to the TnCs here: https://av.sc.com/sg/content/docs/x-card-tnc.pdf
You need to ensure approval by 31st Dec 2019 (which you have), pay the annual fee, and then charge $6000 of eligible transactions within 60 days, you still have time.

I feel now that it has been downgraded to a 30,000 sign up bonus card. the spending amount of $6,000 in 2 months required to earn 30k miles makes it an unworthwhile choice. The cost of buying the miles now is about 2.3 cents per miles which makes it a not worth it option to sign up to buy miles anymore
