    mainit-init pa! 

    EastWest just partnered with Singapore Airlines for a co-branded card. 3 miles per 36 spent, 20 Million insurance, 1.70% forex transaction fees and 6000 KrisFlyer miles with 200k spending on first 3 months. 
    Thanks for the news!

    Here is the card page:


    https://i.imgur.com/IG4ns2R.jpg

    Comes out to:

    15 PHP per mile on foreign spend + travel-related spend (hotels, airlines, etc). Ang ganda ng rate - talo pa Citi Prestige at 18 PHP/mile sa foreign denominated spend. 

    Local rate is 45PHP per miles which is ok lang, middle of the road (same as Amex Plat, for example). 

    Bonus miles is 8k for 200k in a year. Lounge access at 2/year via Priority Pass. I wish they added the Singapore Air lounge sa NAIA T3 kahit na for Singapore Air flights lang. 

    AF is 4k. 

    This should give cards like Citi Premiermiles a scare - EWB trumps it by having much better forex rate and the 100% better miles earn rate on travel and foreign spend (33 vs 15). The lower 45 php local rate should be offset by the higher foreign rate if you use it for travel a lot (which you probably would if you're looking at this card). 

    Downside? Not clear yet sa site - pero since Krisflyer miles expire and I'm not sure if these miles earned are transferred directly to your Krisflyer account (ala BPI Delta Skymiles cc) or into your cc account lang (no expiry in this case), baka mapilitan ka magredeem agad. I know some people like hoarding all their non-expiring miles/points muna before spending on a great deal sa redemption. 

    Overall thoughts - Not bad EWB! Didn't know someone could still come out with a good travel card pa rin - most banks just come out with mediocre rewards cards and cashback cards these days. 

    I personally will stick to my combo of Citi Prestige/Amex Plat for all my miles since that dining/shopping bonus is too good.

    Question regarding sa alliances ng airlines. Magagamit ba ung miles mo sa 1 FFP to partners.

    Hindi ko masyado naabsorb at Medyo naguguluhan ako kasi ako sa alliances benefits. 

    hopefully my makapag share ng experiences nila regarding alliances ( esp, skyteam and star alliance). 

    The thing is to maximize natin ang earned Miles and benefits nito.

    Yes pwede. Pero ang magulo ay kung paano mo yun makukuha. Best ay to call kasi wala sa internet lahat ng award availability ng isang team. Expertflyer.com ang isang way makita lahat pero may bayad.

    This site has a good guide on earning/redeeming miles on each alliance, check mo lang:

  • nagulat ako na may dumating na rcbc gold flex visa kaninang hapon, nung nakita ko na 120k cl hindi ko na ipinaputol. malaki ang cl, sayang hindi platinum ang ibinigay. sakit na sa ulo na may 5 credit cards na ako ngayon. pinakamatagal ko ay 10 months amex ( ginawa kong reference sa rcbc booth sa waltermart makati last aug) ok ba ang rcbc bankard guy? yung mga 3rd party agent ng rcbc booth ay agent din ng metro, sec, eastwest. magkakasabay parati yan
    inactivate ko na agad kanina and ask kung qualified ba ako sa promo na NAFFL, pasok ako. just spend 20k within two months. called thrice just to confirm this, na i note na sa akin. walang reference number maibigay.

    ^^^ Depende sa result ng evaluation ng officer sa applicant. In my case, binigyan ako 150k CL.

    Lumalaban ang RCBC sa miles ah. Nag-Air Asia miles na sila, may pa-Preferred Airmiles pa ngayon.

    Okay kaya 'to?



    Visa Platinum has PREFERRED AIRMILES that allows you to earn FREE flights faster.

    TRANSACTION TYPE

    SPEND REQUIREMENT TO EARN ONE (1) PREFERRED AIRMILE

    Overseas Transactions
    (Non-service merchants / Retail / Online)

    Php25

    Domestic Transactions
    (Non-service merchants / Retail / Online)

    Php48

    Service Merchants
    (i.e. supermarket, gas, drugstore)     

    Php125

    Utility Bills Payment

    Php250

     

    Rack up the points you earn then exchange them for points of your chosen mileage program.

    Note that one (1) PREFERRED AIRMILE is equal to one (1) AsiaMile /Mabuhay Mile /GetGo Point /BIG Point. The low amount of spend required to earn PREFERRED AIRMILES makes it easier and faster for you to reach the amount of points needed to get a FREE flight to your dream destination!

  • red.vesper07red.vesper07 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I doubt pwede magpa convert yung mga naka FFL Plat cards into that new card at retained pa rin tagging, lalo na kung Mastercard to Visa.
