I would like for someone here to explain what transactions are excluded from the computation of the minimum S$800 monthly spend on the OCBC 365 Credit Card and furthermore what the difference between transaction date and posting date is?

    The following are excluded from the computation of the minimum S$800 monthly spend on the OCBC 365 Credit Card - Annual card fees, Cash-On-Instalments, Instalment Payment Plan, PayLite, tax payments, interest, late payment charges, cash advances, balance transfers, bill payments made via Internet Banking, AXS or SAM network, and other fees and charges. As for your second question, the transaction date refers to the date when a purchase is made while the posting date refers to the date the transaction is received by the card issuer which is OCBC Bank. As merchants may make a settlement a few days after the transaction has been made, posting date may be a few days later than the transaction date. As such, the bank has no control over when merchant records the transaction. The cashback computation is based on the transactions posted within the calendar month.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.

OCBC credit card fraud department ensured that a fraudlent transaction never got through.

My card got hacked recently and I was prompted by the OCBC credit card fraud department that my credit card had been compromised. Fortunately the discovery by OCBC at the right time ensured that the transaction never got through. For security reasons, my card was suspended and I had to wait for my new card to arrive. This 365 card is really good in cash rebates and implement some promotion of 1 for 1 for dining.

I have got to say that their customer services has improved tremendously

I have used this card for many years and I agree that it used to be the best card among other banks, until when they increased the cap from $600 to $800. Their customer service used to be very poor, however over the years, I got to say that their customer services improved tremendously, especially solving customer dispute. I have recommend this card to my friends over the years and will continue to do so.

OCBC bank will assign a courier man to drop by your place and a have you to sign on hardcopy forms

I realised that OCBC bank will assign a courier man to drop by your place and ask you to sign on the hardcopy form. I would say it is "very unique". It happens to my sister and my brother-in-law who eventually also applied OCBC 365 card. I think the bank officer call them to offer them, and then the officer fill up the form for them. Then it is understandable for a courier man is assigned to drop by and a signature on hardcopy form is requested.

You can hit $960 per year which makes it one of the best cash back card available.

This card gives rebate for dining, petrol and shopping. This card is widely accepted and has many promotions tied up with many merchants too which I find to be very convenient. With $80 maximum rebate per month, you can hit $960 per year which makes it one of the best cash back card available.

The App is very user friendly and avails all transactions there at a glance

For me bill payment was easy and practically stress-less as it was done directly with my OCBC savings account. The App I found is pretty user friendly and avails all transactions there at a glance. They also have a ton of other promotions especially for dining and petrol which comes in handy with savings.

First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

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.

Spa privileges that come with card membership

I find it very pleasant and rewarding the Platinum Wellness offerings of the AMEX Express Platinum Credit Card as I get to rest and replenish after a hard week at work. I treat myself to spa privileges that come with my Card Membership with spa vouchers from Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. I do this one’s a week and enjoy up to 40% off à la carte spa services at Adeva Spa, Spa Rael and The Ultimate. Simply relaxing and feels good to be pampered.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

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.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

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.
