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.

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.

American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire

First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

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.

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.

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.
