What would be your advice or feedback on Citibank's Debt Consolidation Plan?

Anyone here also struggling with the insecure debt or in the DCP plan? Would like to hear any feedback and advice you have. I appreciate!

    Let me assumed that you already have debts thus I recommend you to go for DCP first; for few reasons. It works by consolidating all your existing bank debts into DCP whereby Citibank pays it off for you and now you owe them only. The interest rate is about 10%/annum, vs 24-30% credit card interests rate. This plan does not eradicate the root of the problem as you need to reflect on the causes of your debts, are they Lifestyle choices or circumstantial? DCP may give you a month of credits to use for emergency purposes but frankly you stand to build up debts again if you don't know what went wrong and how you can make wiser decisions.

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.

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.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.
