    I certainly think there are worth all the hype. The DBS NUS Alumni Card is basically a Credit Card packed with rewards that gives back to your alma mater each time you spend, with every transaction made on your DBS NUS Alumni Card, they make a contribution to support NUS students with bursaries and awards. The DBS NUSS Card on the other hand is essentially a membership card and credit card in one, which takes care of your NUSS bills while still providing you with exclusive Platinum privileges, DBS Rewards and dining offers. So yes the hype is worth it as you stand to gain as you indulge in entertainment, dining, shopping and wellness privileges on campus and island wide earning 1 DBS Rewards Point for every $5 you charge to your cards. With the DBS NUSS Card you can enjoy the convenience of a combined credit and membership card and Auto-charge NUSS bills to your Card while staying connected to the country’s foremost graduate society. I must also point out the complimentary annual fee waiver as long as you’re a NUSS Member. And if you are the jetsetter you can travel in style with NUSS enjoying complimentary access to premium airport lounges at Changi Airport.

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.

You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear

I would recommend the card for use by people who frequently purchase clothing and electronics and also in particular from known on online merchants like AliExpress, Amazon, Lazada, Shopee and Taobao.You get 10X points when you shop at retails for babies and children's wear, clothes, bags and shoes, department stores, electronics and gadgets; which cover almost all retails. Also the OCBC Reward is a $10 rebate for 3600 points which I think is fare.

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.

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.
