I must admit the card has a very cheerful look, but with so many T&C to meet, the rebates don't seem interesting enough..

I guess this must be the reason why BOC's telemarketers spam called me 3x within a week.. I never let them tell me what they were promoting.

The Singpost CC still beats this card for supermarket spending + easier to understand the terms of the rebate

actually i find the 5% rebate quite attractive as compared to all other cards for supermarket. could say this is the ultimate supermarket card? & for those using shell, it has 5% rebate too... which is comparable to UOB cards.

its only $100 min spend per mth requirement and can be used for all supermarkets unlike the rest of the cards only can be used for certain supermarket and their min requirement spend is alot more.

but BOC... hmm... hope to see more comments on this bank...

I think that's 4.5% (basic 0.5% + additional 4%) on groceries for monthly spend below $1000. You still need to spend $1000 or more to get 5% (basic 1% + additional 4%).

But Singpost require at least $500 spending to get rebate. Can't meet this requirement.

A lot can contributes to this $500, yet normal one not attracting as only 0.25%. Good thing is not like UOB one, for consecutive 3 months, this one as long as any one month you have needs for >500 bucks will do.

Besides supermart, good to use rest for online trans to get 2%, will see the 1st CB for this card tml.

and there is a rounding down to the nearest dollar spent per transaction. Not worth it for small purchases.

Thought finally found a card to replace SMRT citicard after they change the reward system.

Think will stick to Maybank family and friends, but cannot get more reward at shop n save.

did my calculation... find Singpost card not worth it for me.
I rather use uob one card for recurring bills.. at least i can get relevant rebates every 3 mths.

yes... 4.5% for this card if under 1k vs maybank 5%...

but this card can use for all supermarkets. so each card got pros and cons.

yah this card not good for small purchases because of the rounding dollar

I just got my first statement for this credit card.

In the statement it said I earn XXXX points and another column it said XXXX points deducted but I can't find it anyway in my bill that the amount was deducted.

Called the hotline and I got cut off twice.

Finally a person answered and said that XXXX points = $ XX.XX

which is 1% of my total bill and it will be deducted from my next statement.

Then I enquired why only 1% cos I use this card only on groceries and by right I should get another 4% rebate.
Then he said the rebate will be credited in next month's bill.

Why so confusing?
Can't they just print in black and white the final amount in dollars and cents that will be off set from the next bill?
