Just checking here.

Am I the only one getting fraudulent transactions?

Had one unauthorized transaction in October 2017, and had to get my card replaced with a new card (and the hassle of all the recurring payment with it).

Had another one this year, January 2019, and having to repeat the entire process again.

hardly use it at physical merchants. when overseas, use another card too, cause worried. most of the time it is big merchants like Amazon, Qoo10, etc.

Thanks Boss. Probably will sign sub cards so more ppl can go in . i cheapskate

One other query, tia gong from another Premier Private cardholder say lumosine to airport is complimentary and unlimited . May i check if itís really unlimited or got any TnC behind it and if this applies to only principal cardholder or can sub card utilise this benefit under the principal card holder account . I believe need to verify identity before boarding the lumosine right so can sub card book or need main card holder to book and be physically there?
so far i have been getting unlimited rides to airport since june last year and recently i called to ask if i still have unlimited rides.. it has been extended to Nov this year.

I typically book for my family as well when we head for holiday together. different location.

Usually within 24hrs (working day), the longest I experienced was 36hrs.
There was once I did a transferred at 9pm and krisflyer miles were credited the next morning(working day).

Hi there,

Conversion of Voyage miles to KrisFlyer miles will be completed within 3-5 working days. The miles will be reflected in your KrisFlyer account.

Is it worth while using this card abroad?
Since you get 2.3 miles for every equivalent SGD 1 that you spend abroad.
For eg if I am in Australia, do you think it is worth spending with this card?

Or am I better off changing cash/ using Youtrip card instead?

If you want to"buy" miles thru spending then it is worth it. But there are some other cards that that give more miles for overseas spending.

With effect from 15Mar 2019, OCBC Foreign Currency Transaction increased to 3%(from 2.8%) and the miles earned is 2.4 miles. The miles will cost you 1.25cts.

You have to convert VM to Krisflyer first. Personally, I think it is not worth it to upgrade using miles.

So after taking into consideration the exchange rate, 1.25 cents spend get 1 mile?
That's very worth it right?
Usually it is $1 local spend get 1 mile.

The 1.25cts per mile is you "buy" thru overseas spending (3% fee). 3cts per $ for overseas spending, 3cts divide 2.4 miles= 1.25cts.
The miles earned thru local spending is free.

Hi OCBC,

I have a supplementary card for my wife. When she setup the payment for Grab, after she typed in the card detail and go to validation page, it showed the user not found...Would like to ask if supplementary card cannot be used online?
