They do have something like that in Challenger. but i was abit puzzled when I saw $10 spent for 1 mile. Did not want to waste my time asking further. Not sure if it was even a mistake or I did not see proeprly.

This is varies from individual. Depends on they spend on local or overseas. For me usually around 30k per year and able to accumulate average 70 - 80k miles usually.

That would depend on how you value the annual fees. I will always seek to waive all fees that do not give me any benefits. If the banks do not agree, I will terminate the card. I will pay the annual fees if I can get something out of it, even if I do not use the card at all. For example, 10k miles for paying annual fee of $192.60. It is like buying the miles. For Amex Krisflyer Ascend, I believe the unique benefits is the complimentary lounge and one night hotel stay. Does the value of benefits exceed the fee of $337.05. I would say yes if you travel and stay at Hilton hotel frequently. If not, the fees actually outweighs the benefits and I recommend not to pay.

Miles actually accumulates faster than you think. And there are also other ways to accumualte miles other than lunch at canteen. When you go out for dinner with your family and friends, you can offer to pay. And if there is a need to split payments, they can paynow you back. Another alternative is to choose those credit card where miles do not expire. Don't give up on the miles game. It may be slow and steady, but the moment you go onto the business class or suites, you will find it worth all the effort.

It depends on the valuation that you give for your MPD. Since different people assign a different value to it, there is no right or wrong answer. For instance, the FX fee may add up to $5. However, I value my miles to be at $6 for the same purchase. As a result, I will choose to pay for the purchase using my miles card instead of a multi-currency card. Here is everything about me and what I do best.

Hi Anon, I'd say that the HSBC Revolution Card is superior in almost all aspects to the CITI Lazada Card, unless you live on Lazada. If you'd like to have an in-depth understanding of the CITI Lazada Card, we actually have a question thread wrt the CITI Lazada Card here. Alternatively, you can check out this article by Seedly's content team, and this article by The MileLion. CITI Lazada Card: - 4.8 miles (12pts) per S$1 spend on Lazada - 2 miles (5pts) on dining, transport & more - Shipping rebates & exclusive Lazada deals - Rewards capped at 4k miles (10k pts) per month - S$192.60 fee waived just 1 year - General spend earns 0.4 miles per S$1 To give a general consensus regarding the CITI Lazada Card- most view this card as pointless, as although the 4.8 MPD ratio you get when buying things off Lazada does seem quite generous, you have to keep in mind that CITI cards do not pool their points together. Hence, in order for you to actually accumulate enough miles on this card for a worthwhile miles redemption, you'll have to practically live your life on Lazada in order to get some actual value out of this card. HSBC Revolution Card - 2 miles/S$1 spend on local dining, entertainment & online spend (no min. spend req.) - Online payments for travel bookings, recurring bills & transit payments are rewards-eligible - Annual fee is waived with S$12,500/yr spend - 0.4 miles per S$1 general & overseas spend The most attractive thing about the HSBC Revolution Card would be it's verstaility with online payments, as you earn 2 mpd if you pay online, these include utilities payments, shopping transactions, insurance premiums, education/tution fees. If you use this card for all these online payments, the $12,500/yr spend to waive the annual fee should definitely be achievable! The versatility of the card makes this one of the better cards to have in your wallet if you're looking to be a less active mile hacker, and imo it's definitely a good entry-level card to use for dining, entertainment and online spending. Thus, unless you're looking to spend predominantly on Lazada, I'd suggest you go ahead with the HSBC Revolution Card! It definitely seems like the more feasible card long-term.

Hi Anon, I'm assuming that you're considering applying for either one of these 2 cards because you're a uni student. Both of these cards are decent for this age demographic, however, I think that the Maybank eVibes Card edges the Citi Clear Card. Here are each cards' respective perks and rewards: Citi Clear Card - 1 Point (0.4 miles) per S$1 general spend - No minimum spend requirement - S$500 credit limit - Receive S$20 cashback w/ S$50 spend in 1st month - $29.96 Annual Fee, only waived for the first year. Maybank eVibes Card - 1% unlimited cash rebate on all spend - No minimum spend requirement - S$500 credit limit - S$5 quarterly service fee waived 2 years, then with use of card at least 1x/quarter - Access to Maybank TREATS discounts & privileges - Receive Adidas wristwatch (worth S$120) on 1st charge, during 1st month - Annual Fee of $20- Waived if you use the card minimally once every three months If you're looking to accumulate miles, and refuse to look at any other cards other than these 2, then I would reluctantly say that the Citi Clear Card would be the better option for you. However, since Citipoints expire after a year, you'd be unable to meaningfully accumulate enough miles to redeem something of value, and hence I'd suggest that getting this card is rather counter-intuitive. The Maybank eVibes Card would be a better option for uni students, as the 1% cashback and no minimum spend is definitely a better option- every cent helps during the most broke period of your life hahah Hope this helps!
