How does the HSBC Everyday Global Debit Card work, do I get to enjoy no FX fee on my overseas purchases and cash withdrawal?

I am looking to checkmate on the headaches of exchanging money in Singapore for an overseas holiday and I just want to ensure to get the best rates. Can I have a good deal with the HSBC Everyday Global Debit Card?

    No Name

    Yes you can have a good deal, simply fund your HSBC Everyday Global Account with the foreign currencies that you intend to spend and transact with your HSBC Everyday Global Debit Card, and they will deduct the same transacted amount from your account without any FX fee. For example if you are buying an item for USD200, they will deduct USD200 from your HSBC Everyday Global Account with no hidden charge. And in the instance that you do not have sufficient foreign currencies in your account, they will convert and charge your transaction amount in Singapore dollar.

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

However that is only for new OCBC Credit Card applications.

    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%.

    OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.
