Great Deals for Existing Amex Cardholders: True Cashback Card and CapitaCard

As someone with cards from almost every bank, it’s pretty normal to feel left out when banks dangle great deals for new-to-bank customers. For a limited time – provided you don’t already have these two cards – get pretty decent sign-up rewards even if you already have cards from Amex!

💳 A new American Express customer refers to cardholders who do not currently have a Basic Amex Card (i.e. not issued by a bank), and have not cancelled any in the past 12 months.

For example, if you have a UOB Amex Card or DBS Amex Card, you still count as a new customer to Amex as long as you do not have a Basic Amex Card.

If you already have an Amex card but not the Amex True Cashback Card, now is a pretty good time to do it. In fact, you only have until 17th August for this good promo. Sign up with MyInfo, spend $500 on the card within the first month, and get a handsome $135 worth of sign-up bonus – a very good offer as far as sign-up promos for existing cardholders go.

Given that the Amex True Cashback card officially supports wallet top-ups – basically Grab, being one of the rare wallet apps that accept Amex – this is a really simple promo to qualify. Just top up $500 to your Grab wallet and you would successfully get $135 worth of sign-up bonus, a whopping 27% rebate. Thereafter, you still get 3% cashback for the first $5,000 of spend.

50,000 STAR$ + $20 vouchers for Amex CapitaCard!

Apply and get card approval by 30th September 2021.

Amex CapitaCard is one card I have been sleeping on until recently. It has been particularly useful because CapitaStar has regularly offered substantial discounts for CapitaCard holders – as much as 10% additional vouchers for eCapitaVoucher purchases on top of the STAR$ the CapitaCard awards.

You can then earn STAR$ from using the CapitaVouchers on top of scanning the receipt for even more STAR$, and the value of STAR$ can be dramatically boosted using SP GreenUP. That’s stacking a lot of rewards on the stuff you can buy across the multitude of stores in CapitaLand’s numerous malls.

As of 29th July, Amex has upsized the referral reward to 50,000 STAR$ (up from 20,000!) which is worth $50 eCapitaVoucher at minimum, and can be easily boosted to $70 with the help of SP GreenUP. Remember to sign up with MyInfo for an additional $20 CapitaVoucher.

There is a minimum spend requirement of $1,500 in the first three months, but this can be done pretty easily through the purchase of eCapitaVouchers.

Don’t have CapitaStar yet? Sign up for CapitaStar here and you can get $5 eCapitaVoucher on sign up, and a bonus $3 when you purchase at least $20 eCapitaVoucher via the CapitaStar app.
