    The first one is CPF LIFE Basicwhich gives you lower monthly payouts but leaves a greater bequest. Contrary to the first one The Standard plan is the inverse of the Basic plan. It provides higher monthly payouts but leaves a smaller bequest. The Basic plan is useful if your children are not in a position to provide for themselves or are financially strapped. The Standard plan is what most Singaporeans will choose if they can see their children are financially stable.

    If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

    First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

    40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

    American Express Platinum Card / American Express International

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

    OCBC 365 Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.
