If you’re looking out for your first credit card, or an extra credit card to make the best use of your upcoming big purchase, wedding, or travel bookings, do not miss the welcome promotions for new sign ups

2. DBS Credit Card Promotions (60,000 miles)

The best DBS credit card promotion that’s going on right now is the DBS Vantage Visa Infinite Card sign-up promo. The latest credit card on DBS’s roster has a very generous ongoing sign-up promo of 60,000 miles. That’s enough to claim 2 economy tickets on Singapore Airlines to Bali from Singapore. Here’s how you can earn those tickets:

DBS Vantage Visa Infinite Card: Get 60,000 miles with promo code VANMILES (min. spend $8,000 within 60 days), until 31 July 2022. To qualify you also have to make payment for non-waivable annual fee of $588.50. The promo also extends to existing cardmembers who can receive up to 40,000 miles.

Valid until 30 Sep 2022

The DBS Vantage Visa Infinite Card’s sign-up promo is fantastic but you can only apply for the card if you earn more than $120,000 a year. Let’s be honest, that’s not the most of us.

For the regular John, the DBS Altitude air miles credit cards’ sign-up promo is definitely more up your alley. If you’re planning to go overseas or do a staycation soon, maximise your upcoming expenditure. Pay for your bookings with an air miles card (you earn air miles instead of points). Consider signing up for the DBS Altitude AMEX or Visa card ‘cause the free air miles welcome bonus is pretty attractive:

DBS Altitude AMEX Card: Get 43,000 miles with promo code ALTMEX (min spend $4,000 within 60 days), until 30 September 2022. That’s $0.09 per mile you’re getting, way cheaper than the card’s base usual $1 for 1.2 miles earn rate. 

Alternatively, with promo code ALTMEXW, you can earn up to 33,000 miles with annual fee waiver.

DBS Altitude Visa Card: Get 34,000 miles with promo code ALTVIS (min spend $4,000 in 60 days), until 30 September 2022. That’s $0.12 per mile! 

If you would like an annual fee waiver, with promo code ALTVISW to earn up to 24,000 miles with annual fee waiver.

If you and your significant other frequent staycations in Singapore, you need to know that you get 10 miles per $1 spend on hotel bookings worldwide via Kaligo on both DBS Altitude credit cards.

Anyway, how to get this welcome bonus miles promo? Here are the steps:

  • You must be new to DBS credit cards (or have cancelled yours more than a year ago)
  • Apply online through DBS, using promo code ALTMEX or ALTVIS
  • Spend at least $4,000 in eligible transactions within 60 days of card approval
  • Promotion ends 30 September 2022

7. HSBC Credit Card Promotions ($200 cashback or Samsonite Prestige Spinner)

If you’re in the market shopping for a new credit card, it’s important to know what you’ll be primarily using the card for to get the most out of it. For instance, if you’re mostly using the card for family spending, HSBC’s Visa Platinum Credit Card will suit your needs best.

However, if you’re looking to leverage on your everyday spending, the HSBC Revolution Credit Card is the one to go to. Say, you have big expenses coming up, the HSBC Advance Credit Card is your best bet.

The point is, not only does HSBC have a card for your every need, it also has accompanying welcome promos this month.

12. Do I qualify for credit card promotions?

You can’t blame us for liking free stuff. If your storeroom is so full of free luggage from credit cards that it could double as a Samsonite warehouse, you might be wondering if there’s a catch to all these freebies.

Well, there IS one drawback to signing up for all the credit card promotions: You’ll get disqualified from getting more freebies in the future.

That’s because banks and comparison sites like us usually offer the best giveaways for new sign ups. Usually this is defined as people who either:

  • Have never ever owned a credit card from that bank, OR
  • Cancelled their card at least 12 months ago

If you’re thinking of gaming the system by cancelling your card and re-applying, tough luck!

Another thing to note is that some banks are more generous than others. If you’re lucky, you’ll get vouchers or cashback or luggage immediately upon card approval.

However, some banks require you to spend a minimum (say, $1,000 in the first month) AND make you wait a few months before you can even smell the freebie. Be sure to read the T&Cs, and only sign up when you’re confident you can hit the minimum spend.
