perfectly legal, can be done in 2 ways

point transfer from credit card A to krisflyer B, but nothing stops airlines from closing your account or voiding the miles because it's against the tnc. this is provided that the bank actually approves the transfer.

adding someone to nominee list, and redeeming a ticket from your own krisflyer account. this is allowed to my knowledge.

correct me if i'm wrong
Okay. Seems the 2nd way is more approachable. Applies to Asia Miles too? I don't have KrisFlyer...

What is the wait time to see the DBS point earned from the transaction reflected from the online banking? Im referring to usual earned point, NOT additional points earned.

As soon as the transaction is posted.

Second way also need you to have miles in bulk. Nobody actually buys economy tickets this way. To redeem for biz, you need miles in bulk.

Made a purchase using AMEX card for Amazon and claimed the USD25.00 AMEX code savings just now.

1x 4TB Seagate @ USD 109.99 (SITEX sell SGD 199)
1x 128GB Sandisk @ USD 22.99 (SITEX sell SGD 46.50)
1x 64GB Sandisk @ USD 12.99 (SITEX sell SGD 24.50)
1x card wallet @ USD 7.90

So SITEX RRP of SGD 270 vs Amazon's purchase of USD 153 (equiv to SGD 194-195 after discount savings)

Amazon has all along been cheaper than anywhere you can find in Singapore for computer storage products.

Wish to check.

Amazon purchases need how long to reflect it on unbill posted transactions?

The Amazon purchased is confirmed but I do not see the credit limit reduced.... kinda odd to me.

Amazon doesn't post transactions until the item is shipped.

Guys.

Does recurring payment/GIRO able to earn DBS points for this card? Just to confirm since TnC nv says anything about recurring payment and GIRO.

Transferring most of my payments here since my plan foiled when HSBC rejected my card application. Sigh.... *&^&$&%^*

After some reading, seems like only HSBC cards give points for tax payments. Just wish to confirm this and if anyone is using any other general-spending cards e.g. Altitude/Priv/Premiermiles to make payment?

Deliberating whether to break my monthly previously-arranged GIRO in exchange for one lump sum via CC.

I think HSBC does not give 5x or 10x for tax payment, only 1x. Anyone can confirm?

I also dont think they gives 5x/10x for telco, sp services, hdb parking, town council, roadtax, etc.
