Yes. 2% rebate for min $200 on other spend on supplementary card, and this goes towards min spend $500 of main card.
*min spend $500 of main and/or sup card, right? T&C says can combine.

All spending on main and sup card(s) get summed up at the end of the month. Base rebate of 0.5% will be credited to main card. If total spend, across main and sup cards, is more than $500, family rebate of 7%/5%/1% will be calculated according to the category spent and credited to main card. In addition, if there is min $200 "other spend" across sup cards, additional rebate of 2% will be calculated on these "other spend" and credited to main card.

Lol. The website may or may not be updated, but the new tnc would still stand. The tnc on Weixin is official. If you want to get the new card with flashpay better wait till 1 may to save on the $20 fee.

Based on my past experience, they took one month to approve the credit card (the longest processing ever).


If you apply now, I guess you may receive the new card after 17 Apr.
