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
If convert to kf by 12th mth..means you need to spend the miles within next 12 mths?

Not sure what the hype is, card isn't that great.
Probably being a "metal" card...but yeah, not worth it.

If want a metal card, might as well go for OCBC Voyage or UOB VI Metal ( https://www.valuechampion.sg/best-metal-credit-cards )

The X Card should also support SC’s new EasyBill service, which lets customers earn miles from rental, tax, insurance, and education payments for a fee of 2%. This means you’re paying 1.67 cents per mile- not the cheapest way of buying miles in Singapore, but on par with Citi PremierMiles Visa cardholders using PayAll.

Very soon, every cards will be metal and the income requirement will drop to $30,000. Then there will be a new card type born!

I observed this is how the credit card industry evolved:

Classic --> Gold --> Platinum --> Infinite Plastic --> Infinite Metal --> ??
