Standard Chartered cuts EasyBill fee to 1.9%

Standard Chartered has cut its EasyBill fee to 1.9%. Buy miles from 1.36 cents each.


It’s hard to keep up with the latest offers for bill and tax payments lately. Just last week we waited for CardUp and ipaymy to reveal their 2020 income tax payment deals before writing an extensive analysis on the best way to settle your IRAS bill this year.

Earlier today Citi started offering 25% more miles for income tax payments through its PayAll facility using your PremierMiles card, and now it’s Standard Chartered introducing an improved deal for those using its SC EasyBill service.


SC EasyBill

EasyBill is a way for Standard Chartered’s credit card customers to earn the usual rewards points or cashback for outgoings not usually allowing credit card payments, like rental payments and education expenses.

EasyBill Options

SC EasyBill still only supports one-time payment requests and not recurring payments. We had hoped that would change since it’s especially inconvenient for rent
