Which credit cards for SP services bills?

Guys,

Which card do you use to pay for the SP services bills to get rebates/miles? This seems to be excluded from all the credit cards' terms and conditions I have seen.

Not sure if you would want to plonk down S$9k of payment to SP services (and maybe telco etc).. But I think the current Citi premiermiles 42K promo (existing cardholder) is pretty awesome!

You cant do that anymore.

They will limit you to pay 2x times of your last bill payment.

Do they check if your account is already overpaid before accepting more payments?

My point being that the payment slip / bill can be photocopied, then you can go pay as if the bill has not been paid, but it only works if they do not check your account before allowing you to pay.

I know they do have the ability to check your bill status at the payment counters as they have done the favour for me before (to check if particular bills have been paid), but not sure if they do check every bill before allowing payment.

Yes they check everytime you try to pay bill from their system.

Good to know, as I always pay the billed amount and not overpay.

I am also curious to know what is the best "cashback" way of paying SP bills? does this count towards the 7% online bills under SCB singpost card?

I use DBS recurring payment with DBS Altitude, can get miles.

You can also pay via DBS/POSB credit cards in the SP utilities app, instead of going down to pay in person.

Using POSB Everyday for recurring payment. 1% cash rebate. Maybe using DBS Altitude is a better choice?

Your 1% rebate is only up to a max of $1. Any utility bill above $100 gets nothing.

if bill is above $100, won't even get the max $1 rebate?
