Am I correct to believe that online transactions are part of the eligible local spend for the DBS Altitude card?

Are online transactions like Facebook ads, Google ads, Spotify and GrabPay considered as eligible local spend for the DBS Altitude Card? But if they are not does that mean that the card can only be used for local retail store purchases? Anyone using this card who can shed more light please?

    I hope my answer gets to shed more light on your question even as it brief and very to the point. Yes! Online transactions are eligible local spend and will net you DBS points. Basically all transactions to the card will give you points, other than excluded transactions particularly quoted in their T&Cs.

5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and more

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.

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.

Earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC

Even as the OCBC Plus! Visa is not a cashback card, thus there is no cap, or "maximum" cash back, you get to still earn rebates in the form of cash rebates and LinkPoints by shopping at NTUC. However do note that there is a minimum spend of $500 in places outside NTUC before the full range of rebates and LinkPoints can be unlocked.
