I went down to the branch and say I want to apply for BonusSaver account. The account was opened, but like that does it mean they will give you both a debit card and credit card? Or need to explictly asked for them?

If u fill up all the sections in the form, u will get both. However if u left out section 3, u will only get the credit card after u passed them ur latest payslip or past 6 mths cpf contribution statement

i was given only credit card(lousy staff didnt tell us we cannot use credit card to withdraw cash from bonus$aver), and my wife they didnt issue any debit card. so we had visited the bank one more time to request for debit card. better you ask for both and save one more visit to bank.

This is mine. I do not have $25000 to earn the 1.88% interest.
I think you have understood wrongly.. You don't need to have 25K to earn 1.88%, but spend $500 retail transactions on the mastercard, and whatever amount in savings account will earn 1.88% (up to 25K)..

I understand from their staff, it must be a master card transaction, which means that it must be swiped at retail or use CVV when you do online transaction. I might be wrong.. To be sure, please check yourself..
gosh, this is so confusing. I called up & different cso gave different answers .

What answers did they give?? Even if you only have 1K in your savings account and spend $500 correctly, you will still earn 1.88% on your 1K savings account.. as simple as that..

my concern is how to spend the $500 "correctly"? I called up 3 times.. First CSO told me all purchases (except bill payments done thru ibanking) will be OK. Second time I call up, the CSO told me only transactions done at the retail shop can be considered as part of the $500. This morning I called up again.. the guy CSO told me paying online at various merchant website is OK.

I have no problem to hit $500 per month but 95% of my transactions are online based, eg purchase SQ air-tickets, Agoda hotel booking, or various bill payment like starhub/singtel thru their own website or Vpost. I seldom swipe my card at retail shops.

or even speak to hotline manager, get them to mail u a letter base on ur query and result. see which route u wan seek.
