If you’ve been reading the newspapers or visited Raffles Place, you may have seen ads for something called the X Card.
The X Card is all set to launch next week, and it’s planning to make a big entry. How big? Try 100,000 miles big.
I’m not at liberty to disclose the full details about the X Card yet, but I can reveal that it’s a metal card targeted at “affluent millennials”. Cardholders will have the option of earning either miles, cash rewards, or travel credit, and points earned on the card will not expire.
The team has also confirmed that although the 100,000 miles launch promotion will be for a limited time only, all who are approved during the promo period and meet the spending criteria will be eligible to receive the 100,000 miles. In other words, this won’t be a “first X to spend $Y” type offer, which is good news.
Back in 2016 when the Chase Sapphire Reserve launched in the US, many of us gazed enviously at the 100,000 points launch offer and wondered if we’d ever see something similar here.
It’s hard to believe, but for a limited time, we’ll have a similar opportunity in Singapore. Keep watching The Milelion for more information on the X Card and its features.
