    eto pala mas complete details pero for the EastWest Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Platinum Mastercard with 4000 annual fee:

    https://www.eastwestbanker.com/info/ewcc_features_singapore%20airlines%20krisflyer%20platinum.asp

    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:

    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.

    Can we apply for a 2nd card with EW? Shared limit ba? If ever na pwede, ilang mos/yr na dapat ang first card?

    very nice! ano kaya starting limit ng Plat?

    medyo on edge pa rin kasi to apply dahil sa infamous customer service ng EW, plus the expiring Krisflyer miles might not be not good enough para sa nagiipon talaga ng miles at di big spender.

    Madami nakaabot ng 3 months pa haha. Ano reason sayo kung bakit inabot ng ganyan katagal? Yun sa akin ngayon in-transit na daw ulit, as of July 30. Pang 3rd courier na. Kasi yun first 2 courier hindi daw cover yun delivery area namin (funny thing is, yun 2nd courier, naibalik lang yun card sa mismong ika-10th banking days, at nacoordinate pa nila daw ito dati na expedite yun deliver). Itong pang-3rd naiconfirm daw nila na serviceable yun area namin. Dapat daw dumating on or before August 13.

    Nakareceived ka na rin ba ng e-SOA enrollment confirmation? After maturn-over sa ika-3 na courier tsaka pa lang ako nakareceived ng e-SOA confirmation, naisip ko tuloy baka kakagawa lang talaga ng card at bago lang talaga nila naiturn over sa courier.

    Will try to request for an ICL with EW, so far sya highest ko and ITR sana isasubmit ko along with COE and payslip. Do banks only accept 2316 with received stamp from BIR or pwedeng wala? 

    Thank you.

    Mga boss, gaano katagal pag magrequest nalang ng branch pickup? Meron ako account sa EWB. Yun “expedite”, “rush delivery” “special card delivery”, same lang din naman ng regular card delivery nila. First 2 courier hindi daw serviceable yun area, pang 3rd na ngayon at naiendorsed daw nila sa courier na pwede mag accomodate ng delivery. PAG hindi pa rin nadeliver balak ko irequest ng branch pickup, pwede kaya at gaano katagal pag branch pickup?

    Kung may existing CC ka, gov't IDs at reference card.
    Kung first CC application mo, gov't IDs at income doc. pwede din COE.
