The Citi PremierMiles Card is an air miles credit card that’s a steady workhorse when it comes to racking up miles. It’s slow and steady in terms of miles per dollar earn rates (1.2 miles per dollar for local spend, 2.4 mpd for foreign spend). Arguably, the best part of Citi PremierMiles credit card is that their Citi Miles (which you can convert to a wide range frequent flyer programs like KrisFlyer) never expire. Let’s break down the other card benefits.
Apart from the 1.2 mpd local earn rate, the card also comes with a welcome bonus miles offer of 30,000 Citi Miles. But to qualify, you’ll need to be a new cardholder, spend S$7,500 within the first 3 months AND pay the annual fee of S$192.60. This makes the Citi PremierMiles Card a good card to pick up if your strategy is to quickly chalk up miles for your next holiday. 30,000 bonus miles is equivalent to an economy class return ticket to Hong Kong or Taiwan.
The card also partners with a wide range of frequent flyer and hotel programmes so you can redeem your Citi Miles (1 Citi Miles = 1 KrisFlyer mile) easily with the frequent flyer program of your choice.
Other card benefits:
- 2x complimentary Priority Pass airport lounge access/year
- Complimentary travel insurance (up to S$1,000,000) and medical assistance programme (up to S$40,000) by charging tickets to the Citi PremierMiles Card
- Citi Miles have no expiry date
- Earn up to 10 mpd when booking hotels through travel site Kaligo
The 1.2 miles per dollar earn rate is low, compared to other cards like the UOB PRVI Miles which offer 1.4 mpd for local spend. The welcome offer of 30,000 Citi Miles is also conditional upon being a new cardholder, spending at least S$7,500 within the first 3 months as well as paying the annual fee of S$192.60.
