50% bonus points on all your spend every time and everywhere

I think it is great the promotion they have which promises that if you spend $5,000 on your card in a calendar year you will get 50% bonus points on all your spend every time and everywhere. Interestingly also you receive 24,000 bonus points when you spend $500 a month for the first three months of the Card membership. That is enough points to redeem for $110 cash credit or 13,250 miles

Points cannot be redeemed for cash

Points cannot be redeemed for cash. The Membership Rewards programme lets you redeem points for a long list of money-saving vouchers, merchandise and even airline frequent flyer miles. But unfortunately you don't get an option to redeem for cash, so if you prefer flexible cash rewards, then maybe you should go for other cashback cards.

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.

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

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.

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.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.
