Can i use my debit card for my maintenance?

There are situations that we are sick and we need to drink medicines that the doctor gave to us. Some people have illness like diabetes and other more. Those who have illness like that needs to drink their maintenance, but sometimes they ran out of those. They go to medical stores and buy those medicines. Now they do not have cash on hand, can they use their debit card for payment?

    Debit cards are an alternative for cash. It is a plastic card that is issued by the bank allowing the cardholder to transfer their money electronically to another bank account when making a purchase. So it depends on the medical store that you will be going to if they accept card payments, but usually a lot of stores today allow usage of cards as payment.

A fantastic account for wealthy, consistent savers who can maintain a high balance

The Citi MaxiGain Savings Account is a fantastic account for wealthy, consistent savers who can maintain a balance between S$70,000–S$150,000. To begin with, this account is a bit unique as the base interest rate is set to 70% of the 1-month SIBOR (Singapore Interbank Offer Rate), which changes daily–making rates slightly more variable than with other accounts. As a baseline, the effective base rate tends to be around 1.00% p.a., more or less, which is by far the highest available as per market standards.
