Customer care service at top notch

This is my first credit card and I was pleased with the process as the application was absolutely stress free and smooth with customer care service at top notch. I actually felt taken care of and it appeared I could rely on customer care service for virtually any issue. Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

A great cashback card for people who are making large expensive life commitments

As is the case with most unlimited cashback cards, the Amex True Cashback Card is a great cashback card for people who are making hugely expensive life transitions. For example paying for a 5-star hotel wedding banquet or moving into a new home type of purchases would fit perfectly with this card.

This credit card can not be used to repay your home loan.

Before we get all excited, let’s first try to put the record straight, and that is that you cannot use your credit card to repay your home loan. I find this to be very unfortunately but irrespective, it pays to sign up for a credit card with very relaxed terms & conditions when you’re about to move in to your new home. That is because, apart from home loan repayments, you’re going to be paying for a lot of assorted items like furniture, appliances, renovations, an interior designer, etc. Many of these won’t fall into bonus cashback categories like online shopping, dining or groceries.

Benefit even more from the True Cashback Card when you travel overseas

It is worthy to note that you can benefit even more from the True Cashback Card when you travel overseas. You get to enjoy an additional 1% cashback on all foreign currency spending with no minimum spending requirements, even through your Welcome Bonus period. In order to enjoy the additional 1% cashback, existing and new card members must register online at amex.co/tcbfcs.

Enjoy 3% cashback on everything you spend on in the first 6 months up to $5,000

Generally this is a cashback card as you get to enjoy 3% cashback on everything you spend on in the first 6 months up to $5,000. Subsequently, you get 1.5% cashback. At first glance, the cashback rate of 1.5% may not be impressive especially when other cards are offering cashback rates as high as 6% to 9%. But upon closer inspection, cards that offer very high cashback rates usually only do so subject to two conditions; spending in certain categories, and that you satisfy their minimum spending requirements.

1.5% cashback rate is offered with no strings attached.

While certain cards might limit their generous cashback rate to specific categories for e.g. online purchases only, and/or require you to spend at least $600 a month to qualify for the cashback. In that respect therein lies the American Express True Cashback Card’s real strength, which is their 1.5% cashback rate is offered with no strings attached.

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.

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.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

I fancy the OCBC 365 credit because it has cash rebate of $80, but only after you full fill their criteria. They require a minimum spending of $800 per month which in turn earns interest from different spending. This card suits me just fine being that I have broad spending habit and in the process it gives me $80 cash rebates every month. My only dislike is the rebate on the general spending which is 0.3%.

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.

Too bad it is not an unlimited cashback card

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.

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.
