I chose my credit card for the miles.
(Note: this post is not sponsored, chill please!)
Naturally, I never bothered to check how many points I have.
Just like Grab, DBS has a huge list of rewards which make it hard for me to say what the best bang for my buck is. Check out this old interface!
What I want to know is the highest dollars I can redeem per point.
Or, the lowest number of points needed to redeem $1.
Let’s get to it!
Naturally, the best points/dollar were from the exclusives category – naturally DBS would incentivise you to purchase one of their cards!
These aside, I’m glad to say that the KrisFlyer Miles were one of the better items at 53 points to redeem a dollar! Justifies the whole card.
Also kudos to these three sites I used as a reference to evaluate the Qantas, Krisflyer and Asia Miles.
On average, the it takes 60 points to redeem a dollar. This means each DBS point is worth about 1.6 cents.
Which means my 25891 points are worth $431.52.
I guess it’s time to use em!

Got too many Grabrewards points?
If you’ve been buying grabdeliveries during the COVID-19 Heightened Alert, or work somewhere really far from home, it might be worth checking the rewards in your Grab account!
It’s a real pain to decide what to use them on, though. Way too many options to scroll through on a phone.
I don’t want to view them on a small rectange!
Like any Singaporean, I’m looking for the best bang for my buck.
And like any engineer, I made a big excel sheet for it.
But of course.
The list is huge! Some interesting facts:
- The largest categories were Shopping (63 items), Food & Beverage (31 items) and Services (21 items).
- The average points/$ was 355.6 points per $. In other words, every 10,000 points would be worth about $28.
- The most worthwhile item (ignoring lucky draws and free lounge passes) were the 70% off Spa Rael reward for 5000 points.
Check out the tables below for the top 5 Rewards for each category. I sorted them by Points per SGD – the fewer points/SGD needed, the more value you can squeeze out of your Grabrewards points!
Kudos to this post from milelion! I used his 1.8c/mile to evaluate the KrisFlyer miles.
I hope you found this helpful.
