    Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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 don't like their internet banking layout and i find it doesn't seem very friendly to me

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    I pretty much use this card only when I know that I will spend more than $2000 in a given month and these transaction does not earn more than 2.5% cash back in other card categories. I don't really fancy their internet banking layout as it doesn't seems very friendly to me. Therefore I always rely on the paper statement to make payment.

    It’s my card of choice especially with the 1.5% cashback across all categories

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    My experience with their customer service is not clement furthermore not getting back to me on the queries I had highlighted but overall, it’s my card of choice especially with the 1.5% cashback across all categories, which allows me to buy discounted Golden Village Tickets and have access to HSBC 1 to 1 Dining deals. Until another credit card offers a greater than 1.5% cashback across all categories without a time frame, this is the card I am sticking to now.

    This is a good cashback credit card for those who have high spending amount every month

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    I am a low spender hence it may not be easy for me to clock $500 monthly expenditure on credit cards but this is actually a good cashback card at 2.5%, especially where you spend above $2,000. Otherwise, other cards will be a better alternative to this for smaller purchases. This is a good cashback credit card for those who have high spending amount every month. My father uses it to pay for insurance premium as it gives cashback for insurance premium too.

    When I signed up for this card I got $100 vouchers for it

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    I only just recently purchased this card. There are a lot of rebates features that come with the card, some I am still getting familiar with which I can use to offset my next purchases. When I signed up for this card I got $100 vouchers for it. However there are yet still a lot of promotions going on for this card.

    Ease of use to accumulate on miles

    American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card / American Express International

    The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

    I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a.

    NTUC Plus! Visa Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I love that I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a. (EIR 11.38% p.a.) on their 12-month instalment plan which allows for fixed monthly repayments.The monthly repayment for your Cash-on-Instalments is fixed, allowing you to manage your finances with ease of mind. That works perfect for me as it helps me to be more organized and I give them thumbs up.

    You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear

    OCBC Titanium Rewards Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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.

    Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

    OCBC Cashflo Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.

    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.

    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.
