Citibank running a PayAll promotion targeted at Citi Prestige cardholders, earn 1.6 mpd if you spend at least $15,000 through PayAll Citibank is running yet another promotion, this time targeted at Citi Prestige cardholders through their PayAll facility. To recap, Citi PayAll is a payment facility to payees who traditionally don’t accept credit card payments (such as private landlords, education institutions, income tax, etc). Citi charges a 2% fee for PayAll payments, so that effectively means that you are paying 2 cents per 1.3 miles (i.e. 1.54 cent per mile) earned on your Citi Prestige card. The promotion mechanism From 24 Feb to 31 Mar 2020, Citi Prestige cardholders can earn up to 11,000 additional miles on top of the usual 1.3 mpd when using the Citi PayAll facility.  There are simply two tiers: Spend $15,000, get an additional 4,500 miles, or Spend $30,000, get an additional 11,000 miles. Note that there’s a 2% fee on the PayAll facility, so to clock $15,000 or $30,000 spend, there will be a $300 or $600 fee respectively. The additional miles lowers to cost …

Moreover, Emirates doesn’t belong to any alliances, so your options are pretty much limited. However, with this offer, the awards become a lot more sensible. you can make a number of redemption options that are comparable to what you might normally spend on Singapore Airlines’ Krisflyer. If you have been converting your SCB 360 Rewards points to Krisflyer all these while, your effective mpd of 1.2 for Krisflyer is now worth 1.7 mpd if you are converting them to Emirates Skywards. …
