I called ler. Its $20. No need to waste money to change to the atu one. There are better rebates out there for ATU. Just use this for the 7.5% dinning rebate.

Are there cards that give more than 5.5% rebate for NETS FP ATU?

Currently, we cant use BOC credit card to sign up for NETS-FP ATU. But will it change on 17th APr?

Usually the bank cc has pre-configured the ATU to itself, no action need to be done at our part (except maybe activation of the FP). If you are asking abt using other FP card to ATU from BOC cc, we will find out on 17 Apr..

Agree with u. Frank and UOB ONE NFP rebates are nerded.

I am trying to remove the ATU so I can try on BOC. Hope it is not for preconfigured cards only and we can register on our own.

I am surprised they improved the terms of this card but did not update the details on their website.

It doesn't show the new benefits as discussed above (eg rebates on dining, hospitals bills and ATU).

Now they only update on WeChat (Weixin) since long time ago already.

If you are using WeChat, you should search and subscribe the public account (公众号) "中国银行东南亚". All promotions and updates are there, but all in Chinese.
