StarHub OCBC

First of all happy Singapore National Day to all our readers! Almost a year ago telco provider StarHub and OCBC struck a deal to allow your points from either of their loyalty schemes to be transferred to the other. That’s good news for miles earners because it means StarHub customers can now effectively (though indirectly) transfer their StarHub Rewards points into KrisFlyer miles.

The deal

As part of their collaboration with OCBC, StarHub are now offering a one-off 2,500 Rewards points bonus if you switch your bill payment option to a recurring payment method using your OCBC credit or debit card, or a GIRO from an OCBC deposit account.

The offer is valid only until 31st August 2018, so you should act soon if you want to take advantage of it. The details of the offer can be found here, with the full terms and conditions available here.

How it works

StarHub customers earn StarHub Rewards points on post-paid contracts at a rate of 1 point per dollar spent, so this bonus offer is the equivalent of spending S$2,500 with them in one go.

StarHub Rewards points don’t directly transfer into KrisFlyer, in fact their only frequent flyer program partner is AirAsia BIG Points (and you certainly don’t want to transfer to them). Getting your StarHub Rewards points into KrisFlyer miles is achieved by first transferring them to OCBC$ or OCBC Voyage Miles, then transferring to KrisFlyer from there.

SH to OCBC Dollars

Batches of 100 StarHub points transfer to 350 OCBC$, while you’ll need 160 points to transfer into 100 OCBC Voyage Miles.
