Citi PayAll Flash Deal: Up to S$120 CapitaVouchers & 2 mpd on bill payments

Expired

From 23-25 February 2022, set up at least S$3,000 of Citi PayAll payments and get up to S$120 CapitaVouchers, on top of existing promos.

From 23-25 February 2022, Citibank is running a 72-hour flash deal for Citi PayAll. During this promotion, PayAll users who set up at least S$3,000 of payments can earn up to S$120 CapitaVouchers.

This flash deal can be stacked with Citi PayAll’s other ongoing promotions, namely:

For the sake of comparison, the previous flash sale in December 2021 only required a minimum payment of S$2,500, but the reward was less-flexible GrabFood vouchers. 

Get up to S$120 CapitaLand vouchers with Citi PayAll

Citi PayAll Flash Sale

Citi PayAll customers who set up at least S$3,000 of payments between 12 a.m on 23 February 2022 to 11.59 p.m on 25 February 2022 (with payment due date before 31 March 2022) will receive CapitaVouchers as follows: 

Total Citi PayAll PaymentsCapitaVouchers Vouchers
S$3,000 to S$4,999S$30
S$5,000 to S$7,999S$50
S$8,000 and aboveS$120

There is no restriction on the type of payment that can be made; all Citi PayAll transactions will count towards this promotion: 

💰 Citi PayAll: Supported Payments
  • Tax
  • Insurance
  • Rent
  • Education Expenses
  • Condo MCST Fees
  • Electricity Bills
  • Misc. Payments (donations, wedding expenses, medical services, parking, travel expenses, transport fee, storage, payment for retail goods and services, renovation fees etc.)

The “misc. payments” category is surprisingly broad.  You could use PayAll to pay for wedding expenses, donations, renovations, even the nebulously defined “travel expenses” and “payment for retail good and services”. Most of these don’t even require supporting documentation; you can simply transfer funds to someone else’s bank account. 

But before you rush off and pay your wife S$50,000 for love and affection, remember that such transactions may have income tax implications. In general any income exceeding S$20,000 is liable to tax, provided it’s deemed to be derived in the course of a trade.

Each customer is entitled to a maximum of one gift during the promotion period. This promotion is valid for the following Citi credit cards:

At the risk of repeating myself, your payments must be set up during the promotion period (i.e. by 25 February 2022), so if you’ve already got payments in place, you’ll need to cancel and set them up again (but given the number of recent PayAll promotions, do make sure the cancellation doesn’t jeopardise your participation in another one!).

For the avoidance of doubt, you can combine multiple payments to meet the minimum spend. However, only the first payment of a recurring payment setup would count towards the calculation. 

Citibank provides the following examples:

✔️ Qualifies
PaymentFrequencyAmount
School FeesOne-timeS$500
InsuranceOne-timeS$500
RentRecurring (12 months)S$2,000 per month
Verdict: This customer qualifies for S$30 CapitaVouchers as he has accumulated S$3,000 of PayAll payments. Only the first rental payment of S$2,000 will count towards the calculation of PayAll payments for the promotion.
❌ Does Not Qualify
PaymentFrequencyAmount
InsuranceRecurring (12 months)S$2,000 per month
Electricity BillOne-timeS$250
Verdict: This customer does not qualify as he has only accumulated S$2,250 of PayAll payments. Only the first insurance payment of S$2,000 will count towards the calculation of PayAll payments for the promotion.

Eligible customers will receive a notification via SMS/email with gift redemption details within 12 weeks from the end of the promotion period. Be advised that Citi has been slightly tardy with fulfilling gifts from previous flash sales, so it’s possible you may wait longer than the stipulated timeline.

The full T&C of this offer can be found here.

Stack with other Citi PayAll offers

Citi PayAll ongoing offers

This flash deal is offered on top of Citi PayAll’s other ongoing offers, as detailed below.

All customers: Earn 2 mpd on Citi PayAll

From 1 January to 31 March 2022, eligible Citi cardholders will earn a flat 2 mpd on up to S$90,000 of Citi PayAll transactions with a minimum spend of S$3,000. Both the payment setup and charge dates must fall within the promotion period. 

The following cards are eligible: 

CardEarn RateCost Per Mile @ 2%
Citi ULTIMA1.6 mpd
2.0 mpd
1.25 cents
1 cent
Citi Prestige1.3 mpd

Citi PremierMiles 1.2 mpd

Citi Rewards0.4 mpd

The Citi Lazada Card is also mentioned in the T&Cs, but that’s likely to be a vestigial leftover, since it’s not included in the illustration table

Cardholders will receive their regular base rewards when the Citi PayAll transaction initially posts.

Bonus rewards will be credited within 12 weeks from the end of the promotion period, i.e. by 23 June 2022. The T&C of this offer can be found here.

New customers: Get S$50 in GrabFood vouchers

If you’ve never made a Citi PayAll transaction prior to 1 January 2022, you’ll receive S$50 in GrabFood vouchers when you make at least S$3,000 of Citi PayAll transactions by 31 March 2022. 

This consists of 2 x S$25 promo codes, which will be sent within 12 weeks from the end of the promotion period, i.e. by 23 June 2022. The T&C of this offer can be found here.

Is it worth it?

If you have payments to make anyway, this flash deal helps to further offset your expenses. 

To illustrate, someone who pays an insurance premium of S$5,000 would pay a fee of S$100 (2%) and receive:

  • S$50 CapitaVouchers
  • 10,000 miles (2 mpd offer)
  • S$50 GrabFood vouchers, assuming it’s his/her first-ever PayAll transaction

Assuming you take those vouchers at face value (and yes, I understand that’s a bold assumption, especially for GrabFood), then you’ve already offset the PayAll fee. Even if you take a haircut on the value, you’re still buying miles at a very discounted price. 

Remember, you’re not just buying KrisFlyer miles; Citibank points can be transferred to 10 different frequent flyer programs, including some with great sweet spots like Etihad Guest, British Airways Executive Club, and Turkish Miles&Smiles. Even the newly-revitalised Qatar Privilege Club might be a good bet, especially in light of the unexpected Avios announcement.

Conclusion

From 23-25 February 2022, Citi PayAll is offering up to S$120 CapitaVouchers on top of its other ongoing promotions, which represents a great opportunity to pay some bills.

Citi PayAll supports a wide variety of payments, including tax, insurance, rent, education, electricity bills, MCST fees, renovation bills and more, so everyone should be able to find some kind of payment to put on the platform.

I am using PayAll for my rental and since only the first payment is counted, can I just set up multiple “single payment” of rental instead?

Kevin

i am also thinking of splitting my recurring payments into multiple single payments. will that still count towards the promotion ?

Kevin

Hey Aaron, any idea if doing 2x payments to same account count towards the promotion given that only first payment is counted for recurring payments ?

Eric

Are you sure it stacks with 2 mpd promo? Doesn’t seem like it

Unless otherwise stated, this Promotion is not valid in conjunction with other promotions, discounts or vouchers.

Mike

I’ve maxed my CitiPayAll limit (which is 95% of credit card limit) for this month under 1Jan-31Mar 2mpd promotion. Any way to reset or increase the limit for this month? TIA.

Mike

Already did that but doesn’t reset the CitiPayAll limit …….lol.

Mike

Sorry – my bad. Needed to wait 2 days for payment to clear then credit limit is reset. Worked fine after.

Alvin

Would be good if they allow payment for car instalments!

This is an upgrade from grabfood.

I received $20 x 10 grabfood vouchers from the last promotion – didn’t use it for more than 5 times, suddenly the vouchers became fully redeemed despite expiry in Mar 2022. Informed both citibank and grab – no news ever after.

Hopefully can utilise all my miles this year and cancel all citi cards for good riddance.

To the Moon

I called them and they gave me a new code.

Hi did you call Citibank or Grab?

MrZJRe

Hello,

There’s a 2% transaction fee, so I would not recommend transferring say, 8k to a spouse. In fact the CapitaMall vouchers can’t offset this 2%…

Overall, it’s a deal breaker for me (and I tried it personally – that’s how I found out.

I don’t see this transaction fee reflected on your review, and it’s also very opaque on Citibank’s website and app. (The actual percentage seems hidden)

Did you indicate this, and maybe I somehow missed it?

Kevin

of course there is a fee charge else why would citibank do this for free ?

thats why there is a cost per mile of 1 cent at 2% fees as indicated above in the article.

MrZJRe

Yeah thanks my bad I missed it in the last part. I had to re-read twice to see it. But to answer your question, on “why would Citibank do this for free?” I expected it to be free because its our first time hearing of PayAll. We thought this was like Citibank’s version of Paylah. I went to look at the Citibank PayAll website, and the fact that fees are levied are not indicated except in some very fine print. (I only found them later, on my third Google). Furthermore, early in the article, Mile lion suggests transferring 50k to… Read more »
