I received the Women's World card today, and I am unsure about something.

10x DBS points on all online purchases.

So if I spend $500 online, I get 5000 DBS points? 5000 DBS points can get 10,000 miles?

That sounds too good to be true, so am I missing something here? I am baffled because with my current UOB Signature Visa, I have to spend $2500 to get 10,000 miles
DBS points are awarded for every $5 spent. So, with this card, you get 10 DBS points per $5 or 4 miles per dollar. For $500, that's 1,000 points or 2,000 miles.

Any one tried paying with Paypal? Is it considered online transaction? Thanks!

Thanks for the info. Do you know if there's a minimum charge per month for DBS card before they give you 10x? Cos for UOB, need to have minimum $500.

Do note that 10X Rewards for Online Retail Purchases are only applicable to the first S$2,000 online retail spend every calendar month.

Thank you! I am not likely to exceed $2000 so I think it's fine. Anyway this means in terms of points, the DBS women's card has no real advantage over the UOB signature.

Why would you say that? The UOB Signature Visa is a horrible card...

I was commenting from a rewards points point-of-view. I use them to accumulate Krisflyer miles and it's been the most rewarding of the cards I have.

Why do you find it horrible?

You earn 2X UNI$, or 2 UNI$ per $5 transaction. This translates to 0.8 miles per $. There are so many cards that offer more miles per $, including
- UOB PRVI Miles Amex (1.6 miles per $)
- ANZ Travel Visa (1.4 miles per $)
- Citibank Premiermiles (1.2 miles per $)
- DBS Altitude Visa/Amex (1.2 miles per $ for 1st $2k per month, 1.6 miles per $ for charges above $2k)

Honestly, you could be earning a lot more miles using any of those cards.

worth it or not huh? at least Maybank Horizon Plat no need pay to convert..

FAQs - DBS Credit Card Redemption, Points, Rewards etc. | DBS Bank Singapore

How do I convert DBS Points to air miles?
Simply enroll in the DBS Frequent Flyer Programme. This allows you to convert your DBS Points into KrisFlyer or Asia Miles. Only Principal Cardmembers can enroll and there is an annual fee of S$40 (excl. GST) which will be charged to your Credit Card. Air miles transfer is at the conversion rate of 1 DBS Point to 2 miles. Transfers are accepted in blocks of 5,000 DBS Points (or 10,000 miles).
Once you're enrolled, there are no further charges and you can effect the conversion of DBS Points to air miles within the year as many times as you wish.

Please note that the transfer process takes approximately 1 - 2 weeks.
