    It should take about a week but there are cases where it took about two weeks, especially when you apply online. However once you get your iBanking user and pin, everything should be fine and easy to access. In regards to crediting your enmergency funds to CIMB FastSaver, I would say considering you will not be touching the money there, CIMB's FastSaver will offer higher interest rate.

    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.

    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.
