That's when Emma stumbled upon a game-changer that would soon become the catalyst for her journey to Bali, all while making her non-card expenses work in her favour. She realised she could earn miles faster than ever by using CardUp to pay her big monthly bills - let's look at her bills: 

Types of payments you can make on CardUp

She has been consistently paying S$7,500 via bank transfer every month, but has been missing out on the credit card rewards she rightfully deserves

She simply charges these payments to her credit card via CardUp, and let's CardUp transfer the funds to her recipients via bank transfer. She gets the benefit of using her favourite card credit and her recipients get paid like normal. Plus, they don't even need to know about or use CardUp! 


Maximising credit card benefits 

By shifting all these large expenses to her credit card, Emma also enjoys additional benefits that her card provides and lifts the weight of the immediate financial stress off her shoulders.

By using CardUp, Emma can maximise her credit card payments by earning rewards like air miles, cashback, and points. Plus, she can enjoy deferring her payment terms until her card bill is due and schedule up to a year's worth of payments with CardUp's advance scheduling. 

Benefits you'll get

What did she get in return? 

Her monthly spend totaled up to S$90,000 in annual spend, and earned Emma over 128,330 air miles! It's time for Emma's vacation to Bali, Indonesia! 

This means Emma's able to save S$2,379 (a whooping 59% saving!) on her flight ticket, and she still has over 2,330 air miles left for her next exciting journey!

Emma did pay a small CardUp processing fee but that was to enable her to earn rewards on expenses that typically don't accept credit cards. The rewards earned can easily outweigh the fee, which is why Emma gets to enjoy 59% off her flight cost by redeeming the air miles earned from the payments she made on CardUp.
