Can I make a dispute over a transaction if I am not satisfied with the quality of the product/service provided by the merchant?

I made some online purchases with my Citi Cash Back Visa Card but was not satisfied with the delivered goods, how do I raise a dispute regards to payments made through my credit cards for the delivery of unfit goods/services

    Actually your ability to dispute a transaction due to poor or unsatisfactory product quality will depend on the sales agreement between the cardholder and the merchant. For example, you purchased a pair of sneakers from a physical store and the terms of sale stated a no-return policy which you have sighted, signed and acknowledged. If so, you will have no rights to dispute the transaction. However, if you made an online purchase like you say and the merchandise you received was not as described or it arrived damaged, you can file a dispute as you have a right to do so. In such a case, you should first make efforts to contact and resolve the dispute with the merchant to either get an exchange or a refund upon returning the merchandise. If the merchant refuses, you can then file a dispute with your card-issuing bank. You will however need to provide documentary proof that the wrong or defective product was delivered in order for the bank to initiate a chargeback.

Complimentary Night Stay a Success

Very impressed by the complimentary night stay I got after I made bookings for a five nights stay at a resort I spent my birthday at in Malaysia. Even more pleasing was the complimentary golf games at a high quality golf courses in Malaysia. As a matter of fact, I had as much as six complementary golf games.

Earn additional bonus cashback with minimum spending of $888 in the statement month

Generally speaking, I find this card to be pretty good card as quite a number of the merchants that they partner with for the promotions are those whom I visit frequently to earn a decent cash rebate from my purchases and overall spending. And not until recently did I realize that one can get to earn additional bonus cashback with minimum spending of $888 in the statement month, so therefore with proper planning on all your bigger purchase it can help you gain more cash rebates faster.

With this card you can get cash back by charging to the card and also get rebates or discounts

Best card ever! I have been using their Citibank Credit Cards since 8 years ago. They are probably the pioneers of cashback cards in Singapore essentially changing from their Dividend card to Cashback card. I would like to point out that with this card you can get cash back by charging to the card and also get rebates or discounts for Lazada purchases and Petrol station top up too.

The card charges me interest every month despite me ensuring to pay up the full figure

This card has not been pleasant for me, as a matter of fact I am having regrets about it. The card charges me interest every month despite me ensuring to pay up the full figure. I am left to assume that maybe these monthly interest were incurred due to lead-time of requesting them to rectify the previous error. Whatever the reasons may be, I just know that I am not happy with this card presently.

Very bad customer service is making it difficult for me to continue holding this card

Even as all forms of customer service is done online one would expect that they would make the online customer service seamless however bad customer service is making it difficult for me to commute when problems arises. I even went further to send emails through my account asking them to return my call back, but received none till date save for tons of calls from their marketing department promoting their loans and other services

I have to say this is not a good system and there are better cashback cards out there

In respect to the cashback, I was informed that we need to accumulate 50 points before we can redeem it out. This prompted me to be using the card very frequent, but still the percentage of cashback was so low that I only succeeded in reaching 30 points. I have to say this is not a good system and there are better cashback cards out there.

American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire

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.

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.

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.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.
