Quite underwhelming after all the suspense:

- 80k income requirement for a VI
- Foreigners have a lower income requirement (60k vs 80k). Typo?
- $695.50 annual fee for 30k miles (43 miles per dollar) whereas DBS altitude card annual fee of $192.60 for 10k miles (51 miles per dollar)
- 2 visits priority pass per year (same as DBS altitude card and it's just a VISA signature)
- bonus 70,000 miles for $6k spent within 2 month (doubt I can hit $6k for the next 2 months)

Probably can apply just for collection since it's a metal card.
how ah how ah....$6k spend dunno got loooooong exclusion list anot

Need pay annual fee upfront first then spend 6k before 31 oct then keep card 6 months then cancel? This correct?
Yes.

If you urgently need to cancel, do transfer all points to airline first. Unlikely SCB can claw back. Otherwise, wait 6 months to play super safe

worth it or notch ? Annual fee $700 + teh potential $180 cash back on $6000 = $880 loss

$880 in exchange for 100k KF miles worth it?

Quite underwhelming, unless you have 300k spare cash dump in for the priority client status and get the additional 100k miles. And if anyone interested, drop me a pm, we can split the referral fee

I paid uni fees with other SCB cards recently and got full rewards, so this is unlikely to have changed for the X-Card

Think it is $80k for all. The $30k and $60k is for privilege account holders

Quite underwhelming after all the suspense:

- Foreigners have a lower income requirement (60k vs 80k). Typo?
- $695.50 annual fee for 30k miles (43 miles per dollar) whereas DBS altitude card annual fee of $192.60 for 10k miles (51 miles per dollar)

The 30k for annual fee paid is yearly or only one time?

Capitaland vouchers can only use cash or the capitaland card to buy
