Depends on the credit card you use. Some miles card like OCBC VOYAGE and Citi Premiermiles do not award miles for transactions on tuition payments, so you have to check your card's term and conditions on whether they exclude the merchant code.

Some cards that reward you with miles are HSBC Revolution, BOC Elite Miles World Mastercard, UOB PRVI Miles Card. Similarly, do check out their terms and conditions first as they may only give miles for online spend or other conditions.

I'm thinking of using the krisflyer uob CC, as singpost is processing the payment, i'm thinking it would be charged under singpost instead and would earn miles. i guess if it doesn't award miles it would be fine, i can just chalk up the spending to get an annual fee waiver from the bank.

Just curious, why singpost? Is that the only payment method?

If there are other methods of payment, it may be better.

Anyways, for singpost, a small 'hack' if you really want to get some extra miles and rewards.

Use CC to topup to Grab wallet (check exclusion list. Most are excluded but still got a few can earn miles)

Use grabpay mastercard to topup NETS Flashpay (NFP) @ GTM (MRT Stations). Everyday cap at $100, each NFP card limit $500.

Use NFP to pay at singpost.

Singpost is like the only method to pay using credit card, else the other payment method is giro or paynow which doesn't garner any rewards. any idea would it be charged as singpost in the credit card statement or would it be charged different under another mcc code?
