    This basically is an added security measure provided by the bank. When a transaction exceeding a pre-defined value threshold (SGD500) is charged to your credit/debit card, the bank will send you a Transaction Alert via SMS. You may log in to Online Banking to change the threshold value. This alert serves as a fraud prevention measure and you should immediately contact the bank if the transaction was not authorised by you. The threshold amount is SGD500 by default. You may choose to change this amount via Online Banking.

    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%.
