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
Think most would utilise the miles for biz class which is worth alot more..

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
Actually seeing the T&C carefully ( pg 50, section 250 ), it mentioned the upfront gift promo is 75k reward points, which is equivalent to only 30k KF miles.....Did they messed up the marketing...

No, they haven't. Read farther.

Ahh ic..Yah further down section 262, additional 175k points, aka 70 KF miles.

Though to get this promo, need to spend 6k within 60 days from card approval date....

Yeah, that's a tall order, especially given the exclusions.

Annual fee prob charged upfront otherwise how they award the 30k miles. Paying $1k to buy 100k miles prob work if one fly biz class to Europe

If I rem correctly ( at least for SCB PB VI ), for the reward points, there's no expiry. However, to convert those rp to kf miles, there are some fees involved.....

$600+ annual fee with the normal air miles earning rate. Well, at least it isn't as bad as HSBC VI i will say, to be polite.

That said, the 100k miles promo is nice but unfortunately, spending $6k which you were not originally going to spend just for it isn't worth it.
But, if you were already going to spend $6k or you can do a pseudo-spend that is not excluded from the T&Cs, then its a no brainer to just get the card (assuming you meet income requirements).

Another unnecessary card. Tried to hype things by using waiting list and all. Can’t stand such amateur marketing tricks.

i'm trying to find out, are the points tied to specific card? from the rewards page, it seems so. anyone can confirm?

if so, if no intention to keep the card after 1 year, then need to convert to KF by the 12th month
