Although OCBC already has two miles and points cards in the VOYAGE and Titanium Rewards, the bank has historically lacked a mass-market travel card. That changes today with the launch of the OCBC 90°N Card (pronounced “90 Degrees North”).
Key Highlights: OCBC 90°N Card
The OCBC 90°N Card has an annual income requirement of S$30,000 and an annual fee of $192.60, which is waived for the first year. Paying the fee in the second year gets you 10,000 miles. The T&C can be found here.
Cardholders normally earn 1.2 mpd on local spending and 2.1 mpd on foreign currency spending. However, from now till 29 Feb 2020, OCBC is offering some pretty amazing miles bonuses, all without cap:
|4 miles per dollar||8 miles per dollar|
The OCBC 90°N Card earns Travel$, which can be converted into KrisFlyer miles at a 1:1 ratio with no conversion fees. The minimum transfer block is only 1,000 Travel$, and Travel$ do not expire.
There is also a modest sign up bonus of up to 7,000 miles for new-to-bank customers, but I imagine the headline for most people will be the uncapped 4/8 mpd.
