    No Name

    The SAFRA DBS Card doubles as both a Credit Card and a Debit Card in addition to a SAFRA Membership Card as well. However the SAFRA DBS Credit or Debit Card is exclusive to SAFRA Members only. Spouse or child dependant (18 years and above), can apply for the supplementary SAFRA DBS Credit Card only if the Principal member is a SAFRA DBS Credit Card member. Approvals of the Credit Card is subjected to application requirements of the DBS Credit Card. On a lighter note, there are no Card annual fee for the SAFRA DBS Credit & Debit Cards, instead SAFRA members will only be required to pay for their SAFRA membership fees.

    40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

    American Express Platinum Card / American Express International

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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.

    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.

    Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

    Citi Prestige Card / Citibank Singapore

    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.

    I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a.

    NTUC Plus! Visa Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I love that I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a. (EIR 11.38% p.a.) on their 12-month instalment plan which allows for fixed monthly repayments.The monthly repayment for your Cash-on-Instalments is fixed, allowing you to manage your finances with ease of mind. That works perfect for me as it helps me to be more organized and I give them thumbs up.

    This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

    OCBC 365 Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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%.
