How can I apply for the Debt Consolidation Plan and who is eligible for it?

If I am correct, the CIMB Platinum MasterCard’s Debt Consolidation is a debt refinancing program which offers the customer the option to consolidate all his unsecured credit facilities across financial institutions with 1 participating financial institution. How exactly do I go about applying for this plan?

    You may approach any of the 14 Participating financial institutions which offer the Debt Consolidation Plan to apply for a Debt Consolidation Plan. An applicant is only allowed to apply once with one Participating financial institution in Singapore as an applicant can only have one Debt Consolidation Plan. To be eligible for DCP, you must be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident; and earn between $30,000 and $120,000 per annum plus have total interest-bearing unsecured debt on all credit cards and unsecured credit facilities with financial institutions in Singapore that exceeds 12 times of your monthly income. However, certain categories of unsecured loans are excluded from DCP, such as joint accounts, renovation loans, education loan, medical loans, and/or credit facilities granted for businesses or business purposes

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.
