    I don’t think you may be able to activate the card in time before your trip as your PAssion membership will be processed within 5 working days from the date of your card activation. However upon the activation of your PAssion membership, you will be able to enjoy PAssion privileges such as the TapForMore Rewards Programme, National Library Board Partner Membership and discounts at Community Clubs. MasterCard contactless on the other hand is a contactless payment method for purchases of S$200 and below at all MasterCard contactless point-of-sale readers. You simply hold your PAssion POSB Debit Card on the contactless reader to pay for your purchases

Customer care service at top notch

This is my first credit card and I was pleased with the process as the application was absolutely stress free and smooth with customer care service at top notch. I actually felt taken care of and it appeared I could rely on customer care service for virtually any issue. Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

Poor and upleasant hotline

I am a fresh graduate and just started my first job, I signed up for this card due to the onetime $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within the first two months. However for its main monthly rewards, it is nothing to be pleasant about and the hotline is very bad, I even had to hold more than 20 minutes during non-peak hour.

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.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

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%.
