    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.

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.

40,000 Membership Rewards points to refer a friends to the card

I like the idea that I can receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points when I get to successfully refer any of my friends to the card. Even more so as my friends can also receive 40,000 Membership Rewards points upon spend of S$5,000 in the first 3 months of their Card Membership. I think that is pretty much a win-win situation.

Poor Customer Service

I am quite very disappointed with this card as I have never received the vouchers for all the points I have accumulated so far. I have on several occasions made complaints via the phone and even in person, but all to no avail. I would not recommend this card to anyone for this reason, i have to say unfortunately.

Looking to maximize on the number of priority pass visits and other privileges

If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you. The reduced general mile earn rate is worth the trade-off for the unlimited priority pass memberships, as well as the high number of limo and meet-and-assist services that you can use.

Earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase

If you target to spend on major event tickets and high price items with the plan to split by instalment then this card is for you. However I notice that if you have an existing OCBC saving account, it makes bill payments much more seamless. And aside from being able to split payment into monthly instalments interest free, you can earn up to 1% rebate on your purchase. Only few cards in the market that allow auto convert spending into interest free instalment and still be entitled to 0.5% or 1% cash rebate.

This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

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%.
