|Edit (18 April 2019) : OCBC has extended the sign-ups for this promotion until 30 April 2019! I’ll update the site with the new set of T&C when it becomes available.|
Back in early March, I wrote about the great offer that OCBC was having for new-to-bank sign-ups for its OCBC Titanium Rewards credit card.
Although the promotion was supposed to end on 21 March 2019, it seems that OCBC has extended the sign-up offer until
18 30 April 2019.
Spend S$300 to earn bonus 12,800 miles
OCBC has extended the end date of the promotion until 18 April 2019 and to qualify to receive the bonus miles, your card application has to be made by
18 30 April 2019 and approved by 31 May 2019. (subject to confirmation of new T&C)
The terms and conditions of this promotion are exactly the same and sadly, still only applies for new-to-bank customers. To recap, you will earn:
- a welcome bonus of 8,600 miles (21,500 OCBC$) upon card approval, and
- an additional 4,200 miles (10,500 OCBC$) by spending S$300 within one month of card approval.
The full sets of terms and conditions for the promotion can be found here.
For the welcome bonus of 8,600 miles, if your card was approved by OCBC in the month of March 2019, the bonus 8,600 miles will be deposited into your account by end April. If it was approved in April 2019, then the 8,600 miles will be credited to you by end May 2019. If it was approved in May 2019, you will receive the 8,600 miles by end June 2019.
For the spending bonus of 4,200 miles, if your card was approved in March 2019 you will have until end April 2019 to spend S$300 on the card. If it was approved in April 2019, you will have until end May 2019 to complete the spending. If it was approved in May 2019, you will have until end June to complete the spending. The additional miles will be deposited into your account by the end of the next month from the month you were supposed to clock the spend in.
OCBC is actually offering two different sign-up bonuses for the Titanium Rewards card. To qualify for the offer which earns miles, you must click on the “Apply Now” button on the OCBC Titanium Rewards landing page which appears beside the text detailing the sign-up bonus to earn miles.
Just a reminder that OCBC$ can only be converted to KrisFlyer miles at a ratio of 25,000 OCBC$ to 10,000 KrisFlyer miles with an administrative cost of S$25 per transfer.
This sign-up offer by OCBC is one of the more generous sign-up offers that is being offered at the moment. If you have never held an OCBC credit card in your life, or have canceled yours more than 12-months ago, I highly recommend signing up for this card to take advantage of the generous sign-up bonus.
