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.

    Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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.

    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.

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

    HSBC VISA Infinite Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.
