ANZ has cards that are competitive and closely tweaked against HSBC.

Citibank if you like the freedom of their cards.
I got Citbank PM Visa and AMEX. None of these cards give limo service right? Only Citi PM Visa gives Priority Pass access 2x in a year. Althought, I can use the card for Citibank lounge access in CGK.

Should I apply for their expensive card? any usefulness?

ANZ I got Traveler Card liao... To get limo must charge $1500 right?

ANZ switch is free for life
But ANZ switch does not have much benefit right?

I do not mind to pay if they give something like free miles. That's why actually I do not mind to pay HSBC VI of $488 if they give me 75,000 points....

I use JetQuay cos I like to drive there myself...hahah

My business trips are typically quite short - usually 3-4 days and using JetQuay allows me to park there for free

Nothing special about JetQuay - food sucks hahah

Oh ya, I ran into Thaksin in JetQuay last year
Yeah many people do that, as it gives you free parking. Well too bad, I do not even own car Poor fellow here.

Did you notice that the immigration has been moved from 2nd floor to 1st floor? (Well actually quite soemtimes ago). I asked the staff who picked me up. She said yeah they relocate the immigration coz many complain as now the immigration office must see the face of the pasport holder and you cannot "force" the rich people who has been travelling by private jet to go up to 2nd floor to clear immigration.


Well I have not seen any famous people there. did Thaksin fly commercial or private?

Actually, I come to realise most banks won't... hahaha.
OCBC Securities still have 13 cents in my trust account.
Every month they sent me statment I think the cost of sending me statment every month is more than 13 cents for sure.

The funny part is DBS. I just opened eMCA late January. So Feb should be the first month they paid interest. But I see nothing on my SGD and USD account.

I called then the girl said she needs to check with the relevant dept. Yesterday she called me and said the dept said they run (up or down??) the interest to the nearest cent. Then I told her, but I thought my SGD account should earn like $0.04xxx and USD is like $0.01xxx (and I think they got around the same amount). First she kept telling me that the bank round it to the nerest cents. then I think she realized. She put me on hold and then said she got my point and will check with relevants dept...

OMG!!!!

Yup, still paper statements...hahah

Anyway, the CSO also damn clueless

I asked him if the account is closed and he confirmed it was...

Riddle me this Batman - since my account is confirmed to be closed, I can't technically owe them money or can I?

Well they supposed to close my Visa Platinum card in Nov 2011 when they issued me Visa Infinite. Later on I found out from their agent (may be slip of tounge) that the account was only closed in August 2012.....

So you better keep the closure letter and scan it to archieve it just in case seomething happen in the future.

Well, I remember when I first used it was on the 2nd floor. As I said I prefer not to use JetQuay as it will take me longer, but when I reuse it again toward the end of 2013, it was downstairs. I asked the girl if my memory was wrong and she confirmed it was moved and told me that reasons.

Who is ATs?

I will be canceling my Infinite card after 2 years. Really pissed at the way they handled their loyal customers.

I will also cancel my priority banking with them as well. No point giving them my business if they don't appreciate it.

Besides I can always re-join (either Infinite card or their priority banking) later and I get to receive their welcome gifts again!
