DBS have reintroduced the annual $42.80 scheme for transferring dbs points to miles, but it's only for krisflyer and it transfers every quarter

https://www.dbs.com.sg/personal/card...s/card-rewards
applicable to Principal Cardmembers who hold a valid DBS Insignia Card, DBS Black Treasures Elite Card or DBS Altitude Card only. So points that do not expire are all auto converted every quarter. Dun like this

Auto conversion for Altitude might not be useful for low spender.

Points in Altitude does not have expiry, upon conversion to Krisflyer Miles the expiry is 3 Years.

if you opt in for the annual plan, you have the option to do ad-hoc conversions anytime without having to pay the $26.75 fee for doing so.. but ad-hoc conversions is still limited to conversions in blocks of 5000 points.

Hi all,

I have a question on transferring the miles from my DBS Altitude card to my Krisflyer account. Do I have to sign up for any form of mileage enrollment programme? For HSBC, I had to do a mileage enrollment programme which took days and $$ before I can transfer to my krisflyer.

U do not need to sign up any form for Enrolment. I just transferred my DBS points to krisflyer miles yesterday. All u need to do is Ensure the cardholder name is same as the krisflyer accounts name

is this the better miles card compared to PREMIERMILES or PRVI Miles?

does this card award miles point to all $ spend? or does it exclude certain transaction?

no it's not.. and I don't think there's any card out there that awards points to every single transaction

Can krisflyer miles be used to offset the prices for tickets? Or can it only be used to upgrade or book for (award) tickets?

Can be used to offset cost of ticket fares at roughly 1 cent per mile.

tnc say only those with specific cards can apply for the auto enrol.

For example if i have DBS altitude, will they convert points only from DBS altitude or also from pool of points I got from WWMC?
