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.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

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.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.
