It seems to be a good card for dining with no minimum spend.

At 10X, Cash rewards only 3.125%. Vouchers at most 3.5%.

I don't see how it's good for dining at 5X

Usually thumb rule is 1X is worth 0.3%, across any bank cards. So 5X should be 1.5%.

Dun think I will get this card since I already have their Unlimited and Spree cards.

But I like how SCB always have 'no min amt required' for their card benefits.

Does SCB rewards points pool together for different cards? Say with SCB VI card?

so basically 4mpd for FCY compared to 3mpd for SCB VI for FCY...
Subject to 20k rewards cap per year, for bonus 9x points, that is like $2222 spending a year, not that significant. So 8888 miles + trouble of applying new card vs 6666 miles.

Edited: if use once per year, probably will forget when I'm using it. Probably will forgo the extra 2222 miles for the trouble.

Off my head, this is somewhat a combination of Citi Rewards card (x10 Shopping) + Citi Clear Card (x5 Dining)

but the 20k pts/p.a is just .... $2222+ spend? lol.
