    American Express KrisFlyer Ascend Card

    [Promotions and Perks] Upgraded my blue krisflyer card to ascend due to the 12000 sign up bonus + extra 10000 bonus for spending 10k in the first 3 months [Customer Service] Really good customer service!!! I've always had such a headache with other banks but first, there isn't those awful phone button thingy before connecting you to a human cs guy. They are super respectful, answers your questions, and expedited my card approval (immediately!!). Annual fee is $335, but for the bonus miles, and the impeccable customer service + free hotel and lounge stay, i must say this is an amazing card.

    [Promotions and Perks] One of the best sign up bonus you can get for a miles card. Also, if you dine out quite a bit, AMEX networks of restaurants and hotels are a really big bonus. [Fee Waivers] Definitely can't get a fee waiver for this, not even on the first year. [Customer Service] AMEX customer service is the best, needless to say. [Miles Card] After the bonus ends, the earn rate is average though. [Hidden Terms] The complimentary insurance only applies if you book Singapore Airlines, so do take note if you plan to "offset" your annual travel insurance with the card's annual fee.

    Nowadays, i use AMEX card whenever possible because:- 1, They have the best customer service officer - short waiting time, happy voice and solve my problem fast 2. Their app has a lot of great offers specific to each AMEX card. 3. There are only few cards offer rewards for Grab Top Up and this card is one of them 4. Can earn miles for insurance, charity and utility bill payment which most cards excluded. With these reasons, I am gonna stick with them for as long as they are as good.

    Signed up for this card due to the attractive sign up bonus. However, it seems like the sign up bonus is getting more difficult to earn as the spend requirement increases. Love their automatic transfer to KrisFlyer account :)

    Had this card 2 years back when I first started my miles journey. Back then the signup promo was much better too, ~40,000 miles for $10,000 spend with hotel stay, etc. I never used the card after I fulfilled the conditions for the signup promo and eventually cancelled the card after a year. The signup promo got worst over the years and it is still not the general spending card one would use. The best part is miles are automatically transferred to the KrisFlyer account, there is no need to pay additional fees to transfer.
