How do credit card rewards programs work?

Rewards credit cards usually earn you points for every S$1 spent on eligible transactions. When you have earned enough points, you can redeem them for rewards such as travel, flight upgrades, gift cards, cash back and merchandise.

Most rewards credit cards also have higher standard interest rates and annual fees than other options, because it costs lenders money to offer a rewards program. This makes it important to compare the potential costs against the value of a rewards card so you can decide if the benefits are worth it.

What rewards do credit cards offer?

The rewards you can get with a credit card depend on the card you choose and the rewards program. Some of the most popular reward categories include:

  • Flights
  • Flight upgrades
  • Accommodation
  • Gift cards
  • Cashback
  • Fuel vouchers
  • Instant shopping discounts
  • Fashion items
  • Electronics
  • Tickets to concerts and other events

How can I use my credit card rewards?

The steps required to use your points to redeem rewards varies depending on the credit card and the rewards program. But there are a few key factors to remember:

  • Account login. You must log in to your credit card account or rewards program account to make redemptions. Once you’re logged in, it’s usually a simple process of going to the “Rewards” section, then selecting “Use points” and following the prompts.
  • Required points. Every reward option available for redemption has a specific point value (e.g. 12,000 points for a S$50 gift card). This means you need to have at least this amount of points in your account to redeem your chosen reward.
  • Points-plus-pay. Some programs allow you to use a combination of points and money to redeem your chosen rewards. This gives you more flexibility if you haven’t earned enough points when you want to make redemptions.

Types of credit card rewards programs in Singapore

There are a variety of different rewards credit cards you can compare and choose based on the benefits you want.

Frequent flyer programs are traditionally designed to earn you points and other benefits when you travel with a particular airline, such as Singapore Airlines. There are two main ways you can earn frequent flyer points with a rewards credit card in Singapore:

  1. Direct earn frequent flyer credit cards. These cards are linked with a specific frequent flyer program and rewards are added directly to your airline loyalty account. The frequent flyer programs that are linked to direct earn credit cards in Singapore such as the Krisflyer Rewards Credit Card linked to the Singapore Airlines and Air Asia.
  2. Indirect earn frequent flyer credit cards. These rewards credit cards let you transfer the points you earn to many different frequent flyer programs from all around the world, giving you more flexibility if you fly with a range of airlines. Credit card reward programs that indirectly earn frequent flyer points include American Express Membership Rewards, Citi Rewards, DBS Rewards, UOB Miles Card and many more.

Many credit card companies in Singapore have their own branded rewards programs for customers. These options allow you to redeem points for a variety of rewards, including frequent flyer points travel, merchandise, gift cards and credit on your account. Some credit cards with their own rewards programs are:

Many of these rewards programs also offer auto-redemption for specific rewards, such as cashback, gift cards or frequent flyer points. For example DBS has rewards program in conjunction with Singapore Airlines and Air Asia with DBS Rewards KrisFlyer Frequent Flyer Program,

These types of rewards cards add credit or “cash” to your account when you meet certain spending requirements. Most cashback credit cards offer a percentage of your total spends as cashback, or provide a one-time cashback sum as an introductory offer when you apply and are approved for a specific credit card.

You can also get cash back through most of the frequent flyer, credit card and supermarket or retail rewards programs outlined above. Just choose the “cash” or “gift cards” category of your rewards program to see what options are available.

How to compare reward credit cards in Singapore

Comparing credit cards helps you find the features that suit your lifestyle while also keeping costs affordable. Below, you’ll find a checklist of things to consider when you are comparing reward credit cards.

    Will a rewards credit card work for me?

    The value of a rewards credit card depends as much on the cardholder as the actual card you choose. So rather than making a definitive statement about whether or not reward credit cards are valuable, let’s take a look at the key factors that make them likely or unlikely to work for you.

    A reward credit card could be worth it if you:

    • Pay off your credit card balance in full every month
    • Currently use a credit card on a regular basis
    • Have a clear idea of the type of points you want to earn
    • Are part of an existing reward program that could be complemented by a credit card (i.e. a frequent flyer program or shopping reward program)
    • Earn enough to pay a higher annual fee
    • Can regularly make use of the rewards or complimentary extras on the card, such as insurance

    A reward credit card might not be right if you:

    • Have a lot of credit card debt
    • Often carry a balance on your credit card
    • Rarely use a credit card
    • Won’t be able to regularly use complimentary extras on the card
    • Can’t afford a higher annual fee
    • Are tempted to overspend in order to earn rewards

    It’s worth noting that there are some exceptions to the guidelines above. If you can’t afford a high annual fee, for example, you might still get a lot of value out of a reward credit card with no annual fee. On the other hand, if you regularly use a credit card but also have a lot of debt, it might be better to switch to a balance transfer or low interest rate credit card so that you get value out of paying less interest.

    While rewards credit cards can be a useful way to get something back for your purchases, it’s important to remember that you have to repay everything (plus interest). There are also annual fees and other costs to consider. But by factoring in both benefits and costs when you compare reward credit cards, you can find an option that suits your needs.
