    To put it simply, the OCBC Cashflo Credit Card automatically splits your payments into monthly instalments and lets you earn up to 1% rebate on your purchases. The provide a 0% interest but allow payment over 3 months when you spend from S$100 to less than S$1,000 and payment over 6 months when you spend S$1,000 and more. For rebates, you can expect a 0.5% cash rebate with a monthly bill below S$1,000 and 1% cash rebate with monthly bill of S$1,000 and above. Note that rebates are capped at S$100 per month.

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

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.

OCBC Cashflo Card allows you to conveniently shop now and pay later

OCBC Cashflo Card offers a ‘trigger’ system that is set up to automatically split payments at a given threshold. Almost all other cards require you to call ahead and apply before making the purchase however that is not the case with OCBC Cashflo Card which allows you to conveniently shop now and pay later, and even enjoy 1% cashback on instalments.

Consumers specify a threshold for which transactions are automatically split into instalments

Not to sound too familiar but I actually find OCBC Cashflo Card’s instalment plan to be especially convenient. It offers a unique trigger system that permits consumers to make big, spontaneous purchases without calling ahead or waiting for approval. Consumers specify a threshold for which transactions are automatically split into instalments, with duration based on the total transaction amount. Consumers can then split charges as low as S$100 across as little as 3 months.

Automatically splits the payments into monthly instalments

The OCBC Cashflo Credit Card is very perfect for big spending as it automatically splits the payments into monthly instalments that is paying over a 3 months period when spending $100 to $1,000 or paying over a 6 months period when spending above $1,000. With the help of monthly instalment it turns out I do not have to keep track of my monthly spending in order to meet minimum spending of $500 for additional interest for my saving account.

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.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.
