Is the Maybank FC Barcelona Visa Signature Card as good as the football team it is in partnership with?

These day it seems more football clubs are going into partnership with financial houses, similar to the Maybank FC Barcelona Visa Signature Card. My son loves Messi and Barcelona FC but is just 9 years old and does not know much about cards but I am thinking to get the card mostly because he is a fan however, who can share some positives and maybe negatives about this card?

    Well I can’t say about directly comparing with the football team but I can share some positives about the card. The card offers 1.6% unlimited cash rebate (No minimum spend and no cashback cap) on all local spend with a 2X TREATS Points offered with every dollar spent on foreign currency transactions. And who know, you can even win a Win a trip for 2 for you and your son to watch FC Barcelona live every football season.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.

So it is really convenient that I can get and use my card instantly when I apply via MyInfo. And the cards instant digital card that can be used for mobile wallets, online and mobile app purchases. Now aside from the same day physical credit card issuance for online applications you also get S$50 cash rebate upon approval with no minimum spend required. However that is only for new OCBC Credit Card applications.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

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.

The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.
