Which credit card....
« on: July 08, 2019, 13:11 »
for income tax installment / payment earning KrisFlyer miles ?

Most, if not all banks would charge a fee or a percentage for the payment of income tax.

I am looking for lowest fee with the most KrisFlyer miles.

If you know of any, can I get your take on them ?

Thanks !

I was rejected by Amex Krisflyer due to my work location but yesterday, my UOB Krisflyer MasterCard just arrived.
I have earned over 300,000 miles from my Amex Cathay Pacific card already, this is just on spending.  Booking from the Cathay Pacific website for air tickets means even more miles and air flown miles are excluded from this figure....   Amex is good but it got a higher annual fee.  No free lunch in this world.

Last night, I booked my first SIA ticket with my UOB Krisflyer.

HK$4,716 = SGD$826 X 3 miles= 2,478 miles.  (This is the real bonus)
Airflown miles = 1,594 X 2 = 3,126 miles.
25% tier miles = 782 miles

Just one singular flight booking gives me 6,386 miles.

DBS WWMC would have given you 4mpd for your booking. And you don't have to wait for your miles to arrive like UOB KF

You do have to wait but it is not a real issue.  You will get 0.4 mile per dollar first.  The 3.6 miles you get will be on the 16th of next month.  You get DBS points first and then converted to krisflyer miles....later

4 mile per dollars for online spend, limit to first $2,000 per month....it is not bad...really.....but, here's the catch....

Catch for the uob kf is that to get your long awaited miles in, u need to pay the annual fee. And the 3yr expiry clock starts immediately in kf

As unexpected, the first-use rewards (3,000 miles) went into my krisflyer miles plus the SIA ticket purchase (2,535 miles instead of 2,478 miles due to unfavorable exchange).  Just a few days wait.
