    The answer actually boils down to what kind of investment you both would prefer. Simple in this context, if you guys do not like to monitor markets and can’t stand the pressure that comes with then passive investing would be a better choice. However, if you both are comfortable with actively monitoring markets to find the best times to buy and sell shares then active investment would be the preferred choice! It really is up to your personality, availability, strategy and passion, because either way you can be better or worse depending on if you know what you are doing.

    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.

    Poor and upleasant hotline

    HSBC Revolution Credit Card / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.

    40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

    American Express Platinum Card / American Express International

    I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

    Citi PremierMiles Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful

    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.

    OCBC Robinsons Group Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    So it is really convenient that I can get and use my card instantly when I apply via MyInfo. And the cards instant digital card that can be used for mobile wallets, online and mobile app purchases. Now aside from the same day physical credit card issuance for online applications you also get S$50 cash rebate upon approval with no minimum spend required. However that is only for new OCBC Credit Card applications.
