    Assuming that you are taking up a loan at $5,000 at 3.88% p.a. for 2 years (EIR 8.20% p.a. inclusive of 1% processing fee), your monthly instalment will come up to be about $224.50 and there will be no change to it throughout the tenure of the loan. Monthly interest and principal are apportioned differently; in the earlier instalments, a larger portion of your monthly instalment goes towards paying off the interest on the loan. The interest portion will be reduced gradually with each instalment.

Poor and upleasant hotline

I am a fresh graduate and just started my first job, I signed up for this card due to the onetime $150 cash back reward for $800 spend within the first two months. However for its main monthly rewards, it is nothing to be pleasant about and the hotline is very bad, I even had to hold more than 20 minutes during non-peak hour.

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

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.
