    Hello friend! Welcome to the DBS Black Card, to easily activate your new card you can use SMS Banking, digibank Online, digibank Mobile, DBS Lifestyle app or at our DBS/POSB ATM and Video Teller Machine (VTM). And if at any point you wish to activate a supplementary card then that needs to be activated independently from main cards, and can be activated even before the main card is activated.

Zero Travel Related Online Merchants

The Citi SMRT card is a pretty decent card for spending but they unfortunately exclude travel related online merchants. This to me is the downside of the card and may be a reason to get another card for travel websites.

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.

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.
