Month after month we tell our readers and customers how lucky they are to be in Singapore, where we have what are the world’s best offers on premium credit cards. As a truly affluent nation with a limited number of bank customers, all the credit card
Companies know that they have to fight for each and every customer. The competition is intense, and credit card offers change all the time as the banks jockey for the number position, and the best deals. That’s why you need a service like Enjoy Compare, just to keep you informed on the best place to conduct your business.
Stellar deals on travel, huge discounts on petrol, and shopping rebates that you simply don’t get anywhere else in the world. We could even go as far as saying that we’re the envy of the planet when it comes to premium credit cards.
And how do we know this? Easy – our credit cards are so good that Australia is eyeing us from afar over our deals. Here’s what Australia’s Courier Mail newspaper has to say about Singapore credit cards….
Noting that Aussie airline Qantas has hacked back its loyalty points reward scheme by 40 per cent, it makes formerly loyal customers think about where their loyalties actually lie. Only giving the full points to first class passengers, and slashing back rewards for business and economy passengers, it appears that Australian travellers and premium credit card holders are looking elsewhere for their loyalty deals, and have turned their attention to Singapore.
Interviewing Keith Mason of the Point Hacks website, the Courier Mail found that passengers are being advised to switch to other airlines, and to credit cards that offer points and rewards that aren’t available in Australia.
“Looking outside of Australia to Singapore Airlines’ Krisflyer or Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles program if you’re keen on using your points on international flights can yield much better value than Qantas,” Mason told the paper.
There’s even limited evidence that Australian business travellers are relocating to Singapore for various reasons, not least a better deal on financial rewards. While it’s churlish to suggest that they’re simply after airline loyalty points and better credit cards, it’s clear that Singapore is offering far better regional value than elsewhere.
Singapore has always welcomed newcomers. This should be no exception – we have far fewer killer spiders, and better credit cards.
