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.

    Close to 6.5% rebates on dining

    American Express CapitaCard / American Express International

    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.

    Earnings of 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent locally

    American Express Singapore Airlines PPS Club Credit Card / American Express International

    This card offers a few thrills if you are one for accumulating miles as you can earn 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 equivalent in foreign currency spent overseas on eligible purchases up to S$3,800 each month. On such purchases above S$3,800 each month, you can earn 2 KrisFlyer miles. Furthermore the card allows earnings of 1.3 KrisFlyer miles for every S$1 spent locally in Singapore dollars on eligible purchases up to S$3,800 each month. On such purchases above S$3,800 each month, earnings are 1.4 KrisFlyer miles. Highly recommended for those who seek to accumulate miles.

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

    HSBC Premier MasterCard / HSBC Bank Singapore

    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.

    This card gives me $80 cash rebates every month.

    OCBC 365 Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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%.

    Fee waivers and No transfe fees

    American Express Singapore Airlines Solitaire PPS Credit Card / American Express International

    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.

    I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a.

    NTUC Plus! Visa Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    I love that I can enjoy Interest rates starting from 5.80% p.a. (EIR 11.38% p.a.) on their 12-month instalment plan which allows for fixed monthly repayments.The monthly repayment for your Cash-on-Instalments is fixed, allowing you to manage your finances with ease of mind. That works perfect for me as it helps me to be more organized and I give them thumbs up.
