The CIMB AWSM Card is great for those low income working adults earning less than S$30,000/year. Their features and benefits offered are 1% cash back on dining and entertainment, online shopping, 1% cashback on all things telco, CIMB deals and discounts, and transit with ease with SimplyGo.0 reviews

This card targets students, NSFs and the lower income earners. In my opinion it is a pretty good card for the target audience since as an NSF myself, I do not meet the minimum salary for the other better credit cards. Furthermore, it doesn't have any annual fees so I can just keep it and use it whenever I want/need to without worrying about any fees. As for DBS debit card, I believe that it requires a minimum spending of $400 which I believe most students and NSFs can't hit, and thus will be unable to qualify for the cashback. So this CIMB AWSM credit card is a good alternative for them. In a brief summary the Pros include no min income to apply for students and NSF, low entry point of $18,000 if you are under 35, better lifestyle perks with telecommunication and dining, unlimited cash back and no annual fees. The cons on the other hand include the fact that 1% is a very Low level for rebates, applicant must not be an existing CIMB Credit Card member, which I find to be quite odd anyway. In summary, you can get the card if you do not meet the minimum income requirements of a standard credit card as it offers a fuss free cash rebate program.
