  5. 5X rewards points (2 MPD) on ride hailing apps, dining, entertainment and travel.

  6. 1X rewards points (0.4 MPD) for all other transactions.

  7. Monthly rewards capped at 10,000 points.

The good

The bad

  1. Sign up bonus is only for new Citibank cardholders and has spending requirements.

  2. 4.8 MPD for Lazada purchases only till 29 Feb 2020 and excludes Redmart.

  3. Free LiveUp membership only for the first year.

  4. Minimum spending of $50 for free shipping on Lazada is off-putting. And this benefit is capped to 4 orders per month.

  5. Rewards points expire in 36 months instead of 60 months like Citibank Rewards Visa.

Conclusion

Is this card a must-have? Definitely not. The sign-up bonus is weak. If you are not a Citibank cardholder, you are eligible to receive $200 cash without even having to spend! The perks that you get for spending your money on Lazada and Redmart are very minimal. There are barely any reasons to get hold of this card right now and even less so after 29 Feb 2020. Next!
