New SC Rewards+ cardholders get up to 4 mpd on extra categories until March 2021

New Standard Chartered Rewards+ cardholders can tap into the bonus category for online shopping, online groceries and food delivery between now and the end of March 2021, doubling the card's regular annual bonus cap

One credit card we don’t talk about much on the site is the Standard Chartered Rewards+ card. That’s mainly because it’s just not very good, with limited opportunities to earn the top rate of 2.9 mpd (or 4 mpd) compared to the increased competition in this sector from the other banks including Citi and HSBC.


The Standard Chartered Rewards+ card is certainly a lacklustre option compared to the 4 mpd competition on the market. It earns 10x Rewards Points on foreign currency spend (i.e. any transaction not in SGD) and 5x Rewards Points on local (SGD) dining transactions, with a lousy 20,000 Rewards Points cap per card anniversary year.


Is it 2.9 mpd or 4 mpd?

What you earn with the Rewards+ card in terms of equivalent miles per dollar is based on whether you also hold the Standard Chartered Visa Infinite or Standard Chartered X Card.

That’s because your 360° Rewards Points ‘pool’ between your Standard Chartered cards, and Visa Infinite cardholders can transfer to KrisFlyer miles at a better transfer ratio of 2.5:1, instead of 3.44:1.
