You're right. Interesting...maybe no fee waiver? I don't know...I submitted my online application already. Haven't sent the supporting documents yet. If they charge me annual fee then I will cancel it.
i was able to send in my application then notice how come nv state annual fee and stuffs. later sign liao cannot terminate LLST. somemore this card promo seems too good so the annual fee might be quite high.

better find out 1st before signing.

Hmmmm it seems that info on this card is moving really fast... but seriously im wondering how come Citibank came up with this card most people with the Clear and Platinum card would have no use for their cards anymore....

Anyway based on those cards and what is posted here earlier as well....
$5 - 1 points only on certain location (Clear / Platinum) den can get $1 - 1 point. And the way i see it, it does make it more worth to use this to accumulate points....

But just checking is it possible to combine points from different cards ? Coz if can i was wondering should i just apply for this and terminate my Clear.... coz for Dividend its not transferrable.... Rebates for Visa cant use for Masters.... do enlighten me.... thank you!

ctb is getting super lame now.
their new system now has a separate gst. thus what we used to pay . eg 180$ af become $192.60 now due to the additional gst. thus with all those stewpig cents now

Regarding the bold part...This is no longer the case. Now is $1 = 1 pt by default. For certain categories of spending, it is $1 = 5 pts.

While we earn points faster, the number of points required to exchange for rewards have gone up as well. I did a quick calculation the other day while looking at the cinema tickets. The increase in points required to exchange is about 6 times.

Also, previously, instant redemption at the ticket counter costs less. Now they cost more.

OK i just got to know about it... from 12th October 2010... but it seems on the website only under Platinum but not under Clear Card.

I think this part abit disappointing but kind of expected in a way. Always find that cards that allow point redemption always got catch...

And thx for the info!

Check out the thread on Amex Rewards Card launched in July 10.

Dun understand why Citi copy the same concept and yet provide lower benefits than Amex.

At a glance.

Welcome offer
Amex - FYF with 8,000 Amex MR upon activation
Citi - FYF with 1,000 Citidollars upon activation

Redemption Value
$20 Robinson vouchers redemption - 3,500 Amex MR
$20 Robinson vouchers redemption - 4,900 Citi Dollars
