Would a $150 monthly investment into blue-chips through OCBC Frank be a good plan even with the monthly fee of $5?

OCBC Frank allows $100 investment a month for blue-chip but considering that I have to make extra $5 monthly fee will I be making a loss at the end of the year?

    From my personal experience OCBC Monthly Investment plan is too expensive for someone who wants to invest $150 a month. In my case I started out with $500 every month and OCBC only charged me for the first $5 transaction only and was not charged for further transactions anymore. I will advise that you step up your monthly investment amount.

    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%.
