Would $100 invested monthly for a blue-chip via the OCBC Frank Card be a smart move?

I want to invest $100 monthly into a blue-chip through OCBC Frank but I gather there is a monthly fee of $5. Would I be making a loss by investing only $100/month or should I put in more money?

    Please note that OCBC Monthly Investment plan is too expensive for someone who wants to invest just $100 a month. I believe a $5 out of $100 is way too expensive and you should look to increase the size of your investment or look for other monthly investment plans out there. I remember my start out amount was $500 per month and OCBC only charge me the first $5 transaction only. Subsequently, I was not charge for more $5.

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%.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

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.
