Does anyone know what the Amex Rewards Card Membership Programme is and what the benefits are if I take up the card?

I don’t have a pleasant story with all these cards that promise rewards and out of the world benefits so I want to be double sure this Amex Rewards Card is worth it and not just empty promises. Can I have a quick update about this card?

    I think this reward card is the real deal that delivers on its reward promises. You will have to sign up for the cards Membership Rewards Programme to first earn 1 Membership Rewards point for every $1 spent. In addition, you will receive 50% more bonus points on the first $5,000 you charge to your American Express Rewards Card at your Favourite five places. Just take your pick over a selection of 150 outlets which include supermarkets, petrol stations, fashion outlets, restaurants and electronic stores. I also like the opportunity they offer to earn 50% bonus points faster when one spends $5,000 on the Card in a calendar year on all your spend, every time, everywhere. And of course unlike other loyalty programmes, Membership Rewards points never expire.

    Points cannot be redeemed for cash

    American Express Rewards Card / American Express International

    Points cannot be redeemed for cash. The Membership Rewards programme lets you redeem points for a long list of money-saving vouchers, merchandise and even airline frequent flyer miles. But unfortunately you don't get an option to redeem for cash, so if you prefer flexible cash rewards, then maybe you should go for other cashback cards.

    OCBC Titanium Rewards Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I would recommend the card for use by people who frequently purchase clothing and electronics and also in particular from known on online merchants like AliExpress, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee and Taobao.You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear, clothes, bags and shoes, department stores, electronics and gadgets; which cover almost all retails. Also the OCBC Reward is a $10 rebate for 3600 points which I think is fare.

    OCBC Plus! VISA Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.

    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.

Plus they have a simple tracking system of cashback rewards, with a good App and web UI/UX.

    This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

    OCBC 365 Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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%.
