5,000 miles on first card spend, a further 16,000 miles if you spend S$8,000 on the card in the first 3 months and another 16,000 miles if you spend S$8,000 on the card in months 4 to 6. Miles only transfer into KrisFlyer. Relatively high cost per mile, and requires a high S$16,000 spend in the next 3 months. There have been better offers and after the welcome bonus it’s a high annual fee for the mediocre general earning rate and perks offered. See our full review for more details.

One of the top sign-up bonuses around – the HSBC Visa Infinite currently awards 35,000 miles with no minimum spend.

However be aware there’s a very high annual fee and income requirement with this card, so you’ll likely want to be getting it for some of the other benefits too.

Sign-up bonus: 13,200 / 34,200 miles

Cost per mile: Zero / 0.56¢
Min. spend: S$3,000 / S$9,000 in 3 months

34,200 miles if you spend a minimum of S$9,000 in the first 3 months, or 13,200 miles if you spend S$4,000 in the same timescale with first year annual fee waived.

Citi has one of the widest range of frequent flyer programs for you to transfer your points into, including British Airways, Qatar Airways, Thai and Qantas, making these very flexible points to accrue. Very attractive cost per mile at 0.56 cents each, provided you have S$9,000 spending to do in the next 3 months. The bonus miles are technically free if you go for the 13,200 miles offer.

If you’re already a Citi customer, there’s an alternative sign-up offer for you too. See our full review for more details, including a full list of transfer partners.
