Just got a letter regarding a tie-up between this card and Starhub. States that I will receive 50 dollars Shilla Duty Free voucher and first year free waiver when I sign up before 31 May. So, how do I go about doing this?
Hi danielkok,

In the mailer sent to you, there would be a URL provided. Application will have to be done via the URL provided.

Should you have further queries on this, do drop us a PM.

So the annual fee was charged this month and I called in to cancel the card. As experienced by others, the agent said that because the card was made of SPECIAL METAL, I'd still have to pay the annual fee even if the card was cancelled.

I said that I definitely wasn't paying the fee, and the agent went, uh...I'll have to check with my manager and call you back. I added that I've already paid the annual fee twice, how many times does OCBC want to charge for the SPECIAL METAL lol

Theres no need to pay if you are cancelling.

Would it be possible to get confirmation in writing that Annual Fee for upcoming year will not be charged if we choose to cancel the card?

I'm currently still on the fence about whether or not to renew it for a second year; but with all these reports I'm inclined to play it safe and pre-emptively cancel it earlier to avoid such hassle.

If u spend enough they will call u to beg not to cancel.
There's no card that says can't waive annual fees. Tried and tested.

Did Voyage change the dining earn rate to 2.3 miles again? I thought it has dropped to 1.6 miles? Just received an e-mail today stated 2.3 miles.

Really? From my understanding it is 1.6 and only transactions charged in a foreign currency earn 2.3. Would be great news if this is true!!

Have you successfully obtained a waiver for higher tier cards like SCB VI, HSBC VI, CITI Prestige or even higher ones like Insignia, Reserve or Charge? If so, please do share with us.

If u spend enough they will call u to beg not to cancel.

Interesting thanks for sharing! Wondering if it is just for Premier/Private Clients only. Let me see if I can get a confirmation.
