Customer care service at top notch

This is my first credit card and I was pleased with the process as the application was absolutely stress free and smooth with customer care service at top notch. I actually felt taken care of and it appeared I could rely on customer care service for virtually any issue. Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

A great cashback card for people who are making large expensive life commitments

As is the case with most unlimited cashback cards, the Amex True Cashback Card is a great cashback card for people who are making hugely expensive life transitions. For example paying for a 5-star hotel wedding banquet or moving into a new home type of purchases would fit perfectly with this card.

This credit card can not be used to repay your home loan.

Before we get all excited, let’s first try to put the record straight, and that is that you cannot use your credit card to repay your home loan. I find this to be very unfortunately but irrespective, it pays to sign up for a credit card with very relaxed terms & conditions when you’re about to move in to your new home. That is because, apart from home loan repayments, you’re going to be paying for a lot of assorted items like furniture, appliances, renovations, an interior designer, etc. Many of these won’t fall into bonus cashback categories like online shopping, dining or groceries.

Enjoy 3% cashback on everything you spend on in the first 6 months up to $5,000

Generally this is a cashback card as you get to enjoy 3% cashback on everything you spend on in the first 6 months up to $5,000. Subsequently, you get 1.5% cashback. At first glance, the cashback rate of 1.5% may not be impressive especially when other cards are offering cashback rates as high as 6% to 9%. But upon closer inspection, cards that offer very high cashback rates usually only do so subject to two conditions; spending in certain categories, and that you satisfy their minimum spending requirements.

1.5% cashback rate is offered with no strings attached.

While certain cards might limit their generous cashback rate to specific categories for e.g. online purchases only, and/or require you to spend at least $600 a month to qualify for the cashback. In that respect therein lies the American Express True Cashback Card’s real strength, which is their 1.5% cashback rate is offered with no strings attached.

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

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

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.

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.
