    I have been using the OCBC BEST Denki Credit Card for 8 months now and I have no complains with it as the benefits are enticing and unique. The card offers 12% BEST Rewards (equivalent to 3% cash rebate) for any amount charged on BEST Denki, including items purchased on the 0% interest instalment plan. For an example, when you spend $100 on BEST Denki, you receive 12 BEST Rewards or its equivalent of S$3 cash rebate. You can also earn an extra 2% rebate for annual spend of S$10,000 and above, and 2.5% rebate for annual spend of S$20,000 and above. When you spend a minimum of S$200 in a single receipt on bulky items, you can have your purchases delivered for free. One particular benefit I love is the one that allows you to use your OCBC BEST Denki Credit Card and pay only 16% of the purchase price for more coverage with Safety 5 Premium Warranty Programme. This 5-year extended warranty will cover Product Failure, Flood Protection, Fire Protection, Theft from Home Protection and Damage Protection.

Free Delivery when I get to spend a minimum of S$200

I was really surprised and delighted when I found out I could get free Delivery when I get to spend a minimum of S$200 in a single receipt on bulky items, mostly items that do not fit into a car boot like my furniture set and home appliances. Those types of purchases have been delivered to mefor free.

Customer service was extremely helpful and able to resolve any queries over the phone

First of all, OCBC has excellent customer service worth mentioning. I was also impressed by the customer service who were extremely helpful and often able to resolve any queries over the phone. Responsiveness is on point. They are cordial and professional in terms of communicating and relatively easy to be contacted via the hotline with minimal waiting time.

Highlight of the perks with this card should be receiving 12% BEST Rewards equivalent to 3% cash rebate for any amount charged at BEST Denki, including items purchased on the 0% interest instalments plan. For example, S$100 spent at BEST Denki equals 12 BEST Rewards equals S$3 cash rebate.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

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.

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.

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.

Pleasant Rewards

In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful
