    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.

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

When I apply via MyInfoget I get to use my card instantly

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.

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.

Fee waivers and No transfe fees

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.
