Who can elaborate on the interest rates and processing fee for the Bank of China $martLoan?

Can anyone care to share details of the BOC $martLoan that offers a fixed monthly repayment period of up to 7 years. I caught a bit of advertisement about a repayment of just S$6 a day, which can afford extra cash of up to S$10,000. Also what are the benefits of the Bank of China $martLoan?

    BOC $martLoan interest rate and processing fee is applicable to the amount granted under approved BOC $martLoan only and all interest are charged and payable at the rate provided in your BOC’s Approval Letter. Interest is calculated based on a reducing balance method of computing interest amount on the principal balance (and not on the original loan amount) that reduces with repayment of each loan instalment. BOC $martLoan applied interest rates are at 12% p.a. for 12-month to 60-month loan and 15% p.a. for 72-month to 84-month loan. Effective interest rates are at 18.72% p.a. for 12-month loan, 15.73% p.a. for 24-month loan, 14.69% p.a. for 36-month loan, 14.18% p.a. for 48-month loan, 13.86% p.a. for 60-month loan, 17.05% p.a. for 72-month loan or 16.89% p.a. for 84-month loan. A non-refundable processing fee of 3% of the approved loan amount or S$150 applies, whichever is higher while a processing fee will be added to the approved loan amount. Benefits include one of the lowest interest rate, one of the longest repayment period, fixed monthly repayment amount, Interest saving with reducing balance method, Complimentary MoneyPlus Line of Credit with lowest interest rate for your daily necessities.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

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.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

I would recommend the card for use by people who frequently purchase clothing and electronics and also in particular from known on online merchants like AliExpress, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee and Taobao.You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear, clothes, bags and shoes, department stores, electronics and gadgets; which cover almost all retails. Also the OCBC Reward is a $10 rebate for 3600 points which I think is fare.
