If I already have a monthly GIRO arrangement with IRAS, is there any point signing up for a payment facility with my HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card?

If I choose to pay by monthly instalments for the HSBC Income Tax Payment Programme, can I sign up for this payment facility if I do not have a GIRO arrangement with IRAS?

    No Name

    No, since you are already signed up for a GIRO arrangement with IRAS upon its approval, you will receive a GIRO Instalment Plan from IRAS. You can then fill in the application form online and submit your GIRO Instalment Plan to HSBC for processing. You will earn Rewards points for every dollar charged to your HSBC credit card from HSBC Visa Infinite Credit Card if you sign up.

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

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.

A good miles-buying opportunity for 40,000 miles at S$488 for HSBC Premier Clients

I find this card to be a good miles-buying opportunity for 40,000 miles at S$488 for HSBC Premier Clients. The unlimited priority pass for both the principal and supplementary cardholder(s) makes this card worth the fee alone but provided of course that there are supplementary cardholders to share the benefits with and that it will be heavily utilized.

The meet-and-assist can be helpful at overly crowded airports without Fast-Track/ABTC/Diplomatic lines

On my last overseas trip I discovered that the departure airport limo service offered by the card is a major plus point while the meet-and-assist can be helpful at overly crowded airports without Fast-Track/ABTC/Diplomatic lines. HSBC Premier Clients get to receive four of each benefit upon registration and an additional one of each service for every block of SGD 2,000 spent in a month, all up to 24 a year. Although the services can only be utilized by the principal cardholder only. This card is overshadowed by its poor mile earn rate of 1.0 mpd for local spend and 2.0 mpd for overseas spend, that is superseded by non-fee cards such as the PrviMiles.

Purchase discounted Golden Village movie tickets at a rate that is far better than any other bank's credit cards or prevailing rebates

To me the HSBC cards have only one good benefit in which they are able to purchase discounted Golden Village movie tickets at a rate that is far better than any other bank's credit cards or prevailing rebates. I find that this is the only plus point of this HSBC credit card and otherwise, this card is a hit and run for me and you can sign up for only its sign up gift and also for discounted Golden Village tickets.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.

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.

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.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

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.
