What do you get from paying the annual fee?
Some credit cards reward you with miles for paying your annual fee. For example, you can receive 10,000 miles when you renew your OCBC 90°N card and pay the annual fee of S$192.60. There are also credit cards, such as the Citi PremierMiles and Standard Chartered X card, that pair the annual fee payment with a spend goal to earn bonus miles.
Is it more worthwhile to ask for an annual fee waiver or claim my miles?
This would depend on how much you think a mile is worth and whether you are comfortable choosing to pay the fee rather than opting for a fee waiver. For example, if paying the annual fee of S$192.60 earns you 10,000 miles, this would mean that the cost of every mile is about 2 cents.
