Anyone ever experienced issues with DBS Live Fresh not giving out cashback for some months?

I dawned on me that on a few months I have only received very little for my online expenses when I am confident I hit a few hundred per category.

    My friend I have same experience. Sometimes I think the breakdown is so not clear, especially for my VISA contactless expenses. When I do receive the monthly cashback it's usually maxed out at $20 for each category. I spend about $1000 every month on this card. Do you guys face this too?

Hit the minimum target of $600 to maximise your cashback.

Considering that I don't spend very much it is hard for me to meet the minimum spend to maximise my cashback on this card but irrespective, it's currently the best card for me since I'm using the DBS Multiplier account and I get extra interest when I spend on DBS credit cards. It is also quite a useful card to use when you are about to go on holiday to make hotel bookings and payment online. You should look to hit the minimum $600 to maximise your cashback.

This student credit card is a must have indeed and with no minimum spending to maintain

This student credit card is a must have indeed and with no minimum spending to maintain, it's always good to know you have a credit card you can use without the worry of maintaining a certain monthly spending. Also, there are a ton of perks which come with this card, in particular, you get to enter Zouk for free only make sure you are an early bird when visiting.

It isn't as attractive as compared to what its competition in the student credit card sphere are offering

With only a 0.3% cashback on all spending, it isn't as attractive as compared to what its competition in the student credit card sphere are offering. However, there are perks for using this card, such as the free entry to Zouk and other deals for DBS cards can be utilised with your DBS Visa Debit Card as well. So you might want give this a try or not but it’s up to you.

The cash back is a good bonus although not significant if purchases are little in value

The cash back is a good bonus although not significant if purchases are little in value. I prefer the old design compared to this new one plus I did not receive much promotions and perks to use this particular card with. But from what I gather, it is a very useful card for students and young adults with a cashback every month on spending, good customer service from DBS, easy bill payments and so on.

Unfortunately the promise of attractive cashback comes with too many caveats

I think this card is ok but among all my other cards, this is the one I use the least. Pretty much because there is nothing amazing or spectacular about this card as it were. On the other hand, the card design and marketing looks cool but unfortunately the promise of attractive cashback comes with too many caveats that I didn't bother after a while.

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.

Ease of use to accumulate on miles

The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

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.

Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

I have held this card for quite a long time and one thing I like about the card is the fact that it is used for CapitaLand malls and they are almost everywhere. So I enjoy dining taking advantage of the 10x rewards merchants to accumulate the points faster. Imagine getting close to 6.5% rebates on dining. Not to forget their sign up bonus of $60 rebates in vouchers when you spend $1,500. That's a 4% rebate excluding the points you will earn which will convert into vouchers too.

Great customer service officers

I have had this card for a long while. The good thing with the card is that AMEX have been waiving my annual fees which is probably why I still have the card. The pros with this card include – Great customer service officers that are friendly and will do their best to help you with prompt follow ups, direct credit of miles to your Krisflyer account, many small promos every few months with a fantastic sign up promo, no minimum spending and perfect for concert lovers as AMEX offers priority to provide tickets.
