    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.

    Ease of use to accumulate on miles

    American Express Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Credit Card / American Express International

    The American Express Krisflyer Credit Card has an attractive sign up bonus and it is easy to use to accumulate on miles as no conversion into KF account is required, and monthly auto “sweeping” of miles help save in the conversion fee. I also have had good experiences with their customer care service as the call center service is absolutely awesome.

    First of all, unlike other loyalty programmes, the American Express Personal Card membership rewards points do not expire. Furthermore, with no restriction on the number of points you can stand to accumulate, you just need to choose the reward you want and you'll have time to get it, pretty much the skies can be your limit as you can use the points the way you want from redeeming shopping, travel and entertainment rewards to offsetting purchases made on your Card.

    Citi PremierMiles Visa Card / Citibank Singapore

    In my opinion, this card is one of the best cards in the market especially as there are no expiry date to miles earned and an amazing 2 VIP airport lounge access. I love the fact that the card can be used for major big ticket items and to clock mileage. Redemption can be done easily without hassle and customer service staff are very helpful

    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.

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

    OCBC Plus! VISA Credit Card / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    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.
