    Customer Service is horrible. They will always end the call saying that they will follow up and call you back but nobody will call you back. They promised me vouchers for signing up and it has been 2 months now and I am still chasing for the vouchers. Most horrible customer service I have ever encountered. Definitely not recommending this card or any AMEX Card. Such a bad impression for a good brand name.

    This card is only useful for the sign up bonus, other than that, I would suggest using a card that earns 4mpd. However, there are some credit as to why this card might be useful. Pro: Miles earned on this card will be directly credited into your Krisflyer account 1,500 KrisFlyer miles each, for the first two approved Supplementary Cards From time to time there are some promo tied to the card that will allow you to get the best out of your $ and earn some miles Amex customer service is really awesome! Cons: An Amex general spending card limits your use (Not all merchant accepts Amex) Low mile rate If you plan to get this card, its' best to monitor the sign up bonus before applying. Once you hit the bonus, sock drawer this card!

  • I am very impressed by Amex customer service. They take ownership of customers’ complaints. The mileage earned are pretty decent.

  • It allows me to earn 2 miles on my SIA tickets for each dollar earned and there is no transfer fee for the miles to be transferred. However do note that if the SIA tickets is not purchased online but via the phone or at the service centre, it doesn’t qualify for the 2 miles and only 1.1 miles will be awarded for $1 spent. I don’t really understand this logic since the tickets are all sold by SIA. Also tickets purchased via phone or counter are subjected to handling fees. By using this card we are penalised again for not buying online. Sometimes the website is down and we just have no choice but to buy via call. Hope they can change this feature since UOB KrisFlyer credit card provides 3miles regardless of channel of purchase. That’s all the feedback I have.

    Easy way to accrue miles directly to krisflyer account with out needing to pay a miles conversion fee. Pros - Quite easy to get a annual fee waiver. - Hassle free way to accumulate miles. Cons - some what below par mpd compared to other credit cards. - Miles are accumulated at the end of each month to your krisflyer account. So miles would expire if not utilized with in 3 years.

    I love this Kris flyer scheme. Upon sign up, Receive a bonus of 5,000 KrisFlyer miles the very first time you charge to your Card. Apply online by 30th June 2018 to receive an additional 2,000 KrisFlyer miles. And best of all, the KrisFlyer miles you earn are transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I applied before 31 May, and received a free one night stay at Oasis Hotel in Novena. It's one of the best perks for me at the moment.

    Excellent sign up bonus. This card is great for bypassing the miles conversation "service" fee. On top of which, I also enjoyed AMEX promotions from time to time with this card. A handy AMEX card which I keep in my Samsung pay and wallet.

    Good signup bonuses on the KF Blue/Ascend. Good bonus miles promotions from time to time (mobile payments +4mpd, grab +2mpd, etc) Otherwise useless.

Hey! I also had this question when I first started flying on my own. I would say, just create a free Krisflyer account! You can create one for free here: https://www.singaporeair.com/en_UK/ppsclub-krisflyer/registration-form/ Not only for the Amex krisflyer, but every other points card, if you would want to collect krisflyer points, this is how to do it and your krisflyer account is the place to collect them.

Just get the Krisflyer AMEX first for their sign up bonus. After which, get the Citi Premier Miles and/or DBS Altitude Card. Pros: 1) AMEX usually has better sign up bnous and they are easier to achieve. 2) Citi PM and DBS Altitude Card points don't expire so you can transfer when you reached the points needed. 3) Citi PM can transfer to other airlines' loyalty program Cons: 1) AMEX directly credit the miles to your Krisflyer account so the 3 year expiry starts immediately 2) CITI and DBS has a fee when transferring over the points Don't mind me for being straightforward but If you accumulate miles just for redemption on economy class, getting a cashback card might be better.
