hi all, my wedding is in Oct and it's too late to start using the Manhattan card for staggered payments. Any other cards to intro? I see the link but there's so much cards there that I am not sure which should I even check out.
we only paid a deposit of $5000 previously. was thinking of using our rebates to exchange for our honeymoon air tickets and if possible hotel too.
i like the Amex Krisflyer card which gives us points but normal UOB cards also allow us to redeems for Kris Flyer miles. so im not sure which is more worth it. we are planning to go Maldives so probably need about 30,000 miles and we already have about 25k of miles in our account each. So if can get more miles and upgrade to business, that would be best.
Also not too sure which card can use to redeem for free 5* hotel stays.
any recommendations here?

Amex gives away free 5k miles on application of the Krisflyer cards.
Other cards which can reedem miles are Citibank Premiermiles Visa, UOB PRVI Miles AMEX, DBS Altitude VISA, Maybank Horizon Platinum Visa.

boredzzzz: other than miles, are there anything else we can redeem? i might consider applying for that to be used for banquet. so out of those that redeem miles, which is the best?
i saw UOB rewards for UNI$5000 can redeem 10k miles. but UNI$3500 can only redeem $50 UOB travel vouchers.
so if pay for the banquet at $40k, will only get about 8k points based on the website where $5 spent = UNI$1. then like that i can only redeem either or even only $100 off my travel.
that's really pathetic..

I am new here. Anyone know how the Kris Flyer pionts work? Like need how many points to change for airtickets. Like for Amex credit card, they have a card can earns point as Kris Flyer points but for other credit card need to change to Kris Flyer points will have to charge administrative fees. I totally no idea of how it work?

I've introduced a few of my frens to manhattan card. Manhattan card is esp good for big purchase items like banquet payment, bridal, house renovation etc. if you can arrange for staggered payment, spend $4k spending in a qtr, u will rec $200 cashback. This one no gimmicks cos I've benefitted from it. Sometimes Scb got promo like guaranteed gift if u spend $3k that mth.
Another savings ac is bonus savers. U will earn 1.88% int pa on ur savings (cap at $25k) ie abt $40 if u charge $500 mthly to ur bonus savers. If u do not spend $500, int will b lower tier which is also gd cos it's still one of e best in mkt.
From now till 31jul, can enjoy $180 cashback on both cards upon sign-up. If you are interested, can contact my RM Andy at 97984624.
Hope this helps.

You can make arrangement with your hotel to pay on quarterly basis so can max out cashback benefit. It's $200 cashback/ card/ qtr.

UOB Signature gives rather useful UNI points.

i was doing a research this morning and i found the best card that gives the most value for $ rewards is actually amex platinum or rewards card. problem is we have to pay for annual fee of $300 and $50 respectively.
other than that, the next best would be UOB Signature cos its 2x uni$. But you have to spend $5 to get 2 Uni$. Where as amex is $1 spent = 1 reward point and for the platinum, if you shop at ion orchard on weekends at some participating outlets, you get 10 points for $1.
for rewards card, if you spend $500/month for 1st 3 months, they give free 24,000 points.. it's super attractive if not for the annual fee..
