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.

Spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months to receive 24,000 Membership Rewards points

The welcome bonus with this card is quite mouth-watering. Simply spend S$1,500 in the first 3 months to receive 24,000 Membership Rewards points. That you will find to be enough points to redeem for S$110 cash credit. Plus you can see the points add up with 100% bonus points on all spend in your first 3 months of Card Membership. I have been using this card now for 6 months and am yet to find reasons to complain.

50% bonus points on all your spend every time and everywhere

I think it is great the promotion they have which promises that if you spend $5,000 on your card in a calendar year you will get 50% bonus points on all your spend every time and everywhere. Interestingly also you receive 24,000 bonus points when you spend $500 a month for the first three months of the Card membership. That is enough points to redeem for $110 cash credit or 13,250 miles

Points cannot be redeemed for cash

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.

Fee waivers and No transfe fees

The AMEX Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card gives a First Year Fee Waiver for you to enjoy and also for your supplementary card members. In addition there are no transfer fees and all the KrisFlyer miles you can earn are directly transferred automatically to your KrisFlyer account with no transfer fee. I would recommend this card for these few reasons which could really make the difference.

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%.

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.

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.

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.
