Yes. "Combined spend from Principal and Supplementary Cards is allowed for purposes of the award of the Base Cash Rebate or Family Cash Rebate."
Great, then if wanna buy other category stuff, best is use sub card?

For those who are current holders of Family Rebate Card, if you want to change it to the new one that can earn rebate for NETS FlashPay Auto Top-up (“ATU”), you need to pay $20 for the replacement, as confirmed by the CS. Also the new card will only be available from 1st May onwards

Sorry if I'm wrong... I heard so many in this forum who wish to pay to get the new card with NFP function, but can i verify that, to enjoy the new rebate system, the old card is also applicable, am I right?

You can always call in again to get another data point.

Yea it is $20 per billing cycle, need min $200 "other spend" on supplementary cards in calendar quarter.
I've read it many times, the criteria seems to be $200 of supplementary card spend, not $200 'other spend' in sup cards to qualify.

Just that upon spending $200 in sup card, the 2% applies only to the 'other spends'

That's right, right?

I received a mailer from BOC looking for people to pay their Tax to IRAS via BOC CC.

Rates differ depending on which installment u take up.

24-month is 1% for BOC cards and 0.8% for Family Card

You stand to earn $50 Taka Vouchers. Catch, you have to pay min. $4,888.

What I want to ask is, do I earn rebates for using the card on tax liability?

I am thinking that 0.8% of $4,888 is $39 and I earn $11 (Theoretically), but of course if I still get to earn Family card rebate, den the deal will be much sweeter.

So the qns is, will I still be entitled to rebates from Family card?
