What is the auto-activation magstripe feature of the DBS Takashimaya Cards all about?

I will be grateful if someone can educate me on the auto-activation magstripe feature of the DBS Takashimaya Cards and how soon after successful completion will my card’s magstripe be activated or deactivated as the case may be?

    The auto-activation magstripe feature is a new feature only available on the DBS Lifestyle app. Once you have enabled the auto-activation magstripe feature, it will detect your device’s location and automatically activates your card’s magstripe when you travel, and deactivate it when you are home, in the process providing you convenience and card security.

A rewardiing 0.5% rebate on all card spends

Although a 0.5% voucher rebate sounds like it’s not that exciting but when you consider that it is a 0.5% rebate on all card spend, that is all your shopping, dining and other card spend turned into voucher rebates to offset your shopping at Takashimaya Department Store, then it begins to make more sense as a deal. Plus you can redeem S$10 Takashimaya Shopping Voucher with every S$2000 spent outside Takashimaya Department Store per quarter.

With the DBS Takashimaya card you get to earn 2 Takashimaya bonus points for every $12 charged to this card at Takashimaya Department Stores, including at all its high-end designer boutiques. After charging $1,800 to your card you can accumulate 300 bonus points and can redeem $90 Takashimaya Gift Voucher which is equivalent to a 5% voucher rebate

You can enjoy a free $3 top-up to your cash card with a minimum purchase of $120 at the Takashimaya Department Store

I believe it is best to become a Takashimaya VIP member and enjoy an additional 10% discount at the Takashimaya department stores aside from basic 2 Takashimaya bonus points you earn for every $12 charged to the card at Takashimaya Department Stores store during selected sale events. You can equally enjoy a free $3 top-up to your Cash Card with a minimum purchase of $120 at the Takashimaya Department Store

Earn 2 Takashimaya Bonus Points with every $12 charged at Takashimaya Department Stores

I like this card for the 5% voucher rebates that come with using it and the offering to earn 2 Takashimaya Bonus Points with every $12 charged at Takashimaya Department Store, also because I can redeem $30 worth of Takashimaya Gift Vouchers with 100 Takashimaya Bonus Points. I must confess that I am addicted to deals and making the most of card benefits. I am currently still impressed by this cards deals.

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%.

Customer care service at top notch

This is my first credit card and I was pleased with the process as the application was absolutely stress free and smooth with customer care service at top notch. I actually felt taken care of and it appeared I could rely on customer care service for virtually any issue. Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

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.
