    There is an additional fee which will be levied on all Visa and MasterCard transactions effected in Singapore dollars and processed overseas online transactions inclusive. This includes but is not limited to any Visa or MasterCard retail transaction presented in foreign currency that you choose to pay in Singapore dollars via dynamic currency conversion and also any online retail card transaction charged to your Visa and MasterCard cards on overseas websites in Singapore Dollars. The additional fee charged is 1% on all converted Singapore dollar amounts for each Visa and MasterCard transaction.

When I apply via MyInfoget I get to use my card instantly

So it is really convenient that I can get and use my card instantly when I apply via MyInfo. And the cards instant digital card that can be used for mobile wallets, online and mobile app purchases. Now aside from the same day physical credit card issuance for online applications you also get S$50 cash rebate upon approval with no minimum spend required. However that is only for new OCBC Credit Card applications.

This card also gives a very good cashback of 5% with no minimum spend required

This is one of my favourite credit card for shopping and I mainly use this card during the Robinsons sales together with the Robinsons discount, as this card also gives a very good cashback of 5% with no minimum spend required. If you are buying expensive items then the expenses can easily reach a few thousand dollars, cashback will be upgraded to 10% if spend is beyond S$5,000 within the qualifying period.

With this cards rebate scheme it means you can only use back rewards earn to spend at Robinson groups of company while most items in Robinson store were unique yet overpriced. Thus the rebates value or purchasing power is way lower compared to other cards, cash back or miles rewards.

Good rebates if you're considering purchasing big stuffs and some household appliances but again price is high and you may get better deals elsewhere still. However, Robinson does offer some useful packages which at the end of the day is what consumer are looking for and don't mind the pricing.

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.

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.

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.

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.
