    American Express KrisFlyer Ascend Card

    Reason for 5 star, 1. The customer service is simply awesome. Never once they fail me, not about fee waiver but everything about it. Tip TOP customer service 2. They listen to you, understanding the current covid-19 situation and the competitive cards out there who don’t mandate annual fee as long as we are actively using. 3. Perks aren’t that bad. Considering no need to convert. Yes as a miles person we can go mix and match different card to get high mpd but after all we still need one card for all other purpose right ? In summary, I don’t work for AMEX neither I invested in the company. However, important this product is at market standard and they credit your miles directly without charges. Even if your transaction is a dollar , u still earn miles. Where other cards out there who only give u points for every $5 and 0 points for less $5

    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 :)
