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

    No Name

    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.

    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

    Citi Cash Back Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    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.

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

    Citi Cash Back Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    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.

    I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a.

    NTUC Plus! Visa Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I love that I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a. (EIR 11.38% p.a.) on their 12-month instalment plan which allows for fixed monthly repayments.The monthly repayment for your Cash-on-Instalments is fixed, allowing you to manage your finances with ease of mind. That works perfect for me as it helps me to be more organized and I give them thumbs up.
