    Congratulations on your new child, I will like to recommend the HSBC Visa Platinum Credit Card to you. This is because the card is a great card with upsized rebates of 5% cash rebate on dining and eating out with the family allowing you to save on your daily expenses at all local grocery stores and supermarkets. Interestingly, this includes all food and beverage outlets in Singapore, except hotel dining.

    Gives you 5% cashback on telco bills with a minimum spend of $400

    HSBC VISA Platinum Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    Must times majority of credit cards offer cashback on daily needs like transportation and food but they neglect other important necessity such as the common internet. Anyway the HSBC Visa Platinum credit card is such a rare card as it gives you 5% cashback on telco bills with a minimum spend of $400. In addition, it gives you modest rebates on groceries and petrol, so you can also use it as an all-purpose cashback card.

    Spend of $400 a month gets 5% cashback on telco bills and 3% cashback on groceries and petrol

    HSBC VISA Platinum Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    I love the features which allows a Spend of $400 a month to get 5% cashback on telco bills and 3% cashback on groceries and petrol. They also observe a low cashback cap of $60 per quarter that is $20 a month and one must spend the amount consecutively for 3 months in order to get the cashback or alternatively, spend $800 a month and get 5% on telco bills, groceries and petrol, capped at $120 per quarter.

    Earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC

    OCBC Plus! VISA Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

    Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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.

    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.

    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.
