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 the card at Takashimaya Department Stores

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.

With an additional 10% savings that you can achieve during selected sale events at Takashimaya Department Stores and an opportunity to receive $6 top-up to your CashCard when you charge a minimum amount of $250 to your DBS Takashimaya Card at Takashimaya Department Store. Every $5 charged anywhere gives you 1 DBS Point, you can then proceed to accumulate and exchange your DBS Points for more Takashimaya Gift Vouchers and shop for free.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

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.

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

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.

Fee waivers and No transfe fees

The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.

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

You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear

I would recommend the card for use by people who frequently purchase clothing and electronics and also in particular from known on online merchants like AliExpress, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee and Taobao.You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear, clothes, bags and shoes, department stores, electronics and gadgets; which cover almost all retails. Also the OCBC Reward is a $10 rebate for 3600 points which I think is fare.

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.
