100k miles is like 2 economy tickets to Japan right worth about $1300..think quite worthwhile

Tough thing is swiping 6k one shot
100k can get round trip in Biz to South Africa, more worth it haha

What to swipe for 6k? Pay tax?
Book a family trip or mistress trip in far away land or buy a branded watch for yourself or wife or mistress or buy diamond for your wife or mistress etc.

Easily more than S$6k...

Am expecting them to ask me to swipe like $8k in 3 months from date of approval plus pay the annual fee.

If I take the maximum value of miles at $0.02, that 100,000 miles is worth $2000. Don't think they will be so generous.

Wahh, from the T&Cs, annual fee $695 that is strictly non-waiveable. Only 2 priority pass per year.

Looks to be worse than the normal SCB VI ( with annual fee $588 and 4 PP ), and the SCB PB VI ( waiveable annual fees and 24 PP )....

Only the bonus is appealing, most people would just cancel after getting the 100k

still worth it right, spend $6K and $700AF for 100k miles...

only saw prepaid accounts are excluded, is Cardup /GrabPay/Insurance 100% excluded? Need to think of how to clock 6k in a month

Mileage earn rate is 1.2/2.0 for local and foreign spend. Same as Altitude and Premiermiles. But SCB has a 0.5% higher FCY conversion fee.

i think most ppl wont get this card just to chase miles, most if not all will take the 100k miles and go. Anyone know besides 100k miles and 2 PP per year, any other useful benefits? Like free limo etc

i see some bloggers value air miles at 0.8c-1.5c for economy class flight, so not sure if its worth paying $700 and forgoing cc rebate on $6K spend for the miles
