    It is not worth it for me as only the sign up bonus is the meaningful incentive for me. It might be a perfect card for families that spend most of their time in capitaland mall for the free carpark. Apart from that maybe the fact that it is the only credit card that can be used to purchase capita vouchers. The exchange rate of Star$ to vouchers is 5,000 star$ to 5 capitalland voucher. This means you can only get about 1-3% rebates (3% for dining) at capland outlets. This is not too good when other cards are offering 6% rebate on dining. I think its rewards system has to be improved to match other cards.

    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.

    I received $20 CapitaVouchers as the sign up bonus,

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    The American express CapitaCard is my first credit card and I find the sign up bonus attractive as I received $20 CapitaVouchers, which come in the form of STAR$ after being referred by my friend while my friend would receive S$30 CapitaVouchers also in the form of STAR$ after referring to me. Besides that, you can get to earn STAR$ points when shopping at Capitalmalls.

    Good for families that spend most of their time in capitaland mall for the free carpark

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    I feel this card is only worth its onions because of the sign up bonus. However subsequently, it might be good for families that spend most of their time in capitaland mall for the "free carpark". Pretty much this card offers features that revolve your life around capitaland malls and if you are not excited by that then you could try other cards. By the way this is the only credit card that can be used to purchase capita vouchers

    Receive a lot of capitastar points when spending with this card

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    It feels quite good to receive a lot of capitastar points when spending with this card, but still it is not really worth it to convert points to capitamall vouchers and other in-app deals are more value for money. I actually held this card for close to one year when Amex decided to charge me annual fee for second year and couldn't waive it because my spending wasn't high enough to justify the waiver, I converted it to the true cashback card.

    Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

    HSBC Advance Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    Unfortunately, the HSBC advance card is not an unlimited cashback card as they have a cap on the cashback per month, even for advance banking clients. Furthermore, if you are not an advance banking client, you would not get subsequent card fee waiver if you do not get to spend at least $12,000 in a year.

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

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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

    Citi Rewards Card / Citibank Singapore

    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.

    American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire

    American Express Personal Card / American Express International

    First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

    Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

    OCBC Cashflo Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.
