    No Name

    I can gladly recommend the BOC Zoabao Debit Card as you can enjoy ticketing privileges to selected events like forums, workshops, fairs and performances under SPH Chinese Media Group and its media brands with zero currency exchange fees for all RMB transactions through your RMB account. No transaction fee for your cash withdrawals at over 24,000 BOC ATMs in Mainland China, for a limited time only. Additionally you can enjoy payment convenience with UnionPay, the largest payment network in China. They also offer enhanced card protection with EMV chip to allow 24-hour SMS notification for your transactions. Furthermore there are no annual fees ever with the card with an efficient online banking system which allows you to view your transaction details, change daily transaction limits and activate overseas usage on your debit card via BOC Personal Online Banking.

Spa privileges that come with card membership

I find it very pleasant and rewarding the Platinum Wellness offerings of the AMEX Express Platinum Credit Card as I get to rest and replenish after a hard week at work. I treat myself to spa privileges that come with my Card Membership with spa vouchers from Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. I do this one’s a week and enjoy up to 40% off à la carte spa services at Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. Simply relaxing and feels good to be pampered.

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.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.
