Unbilled transactions.

First time getting rebates on this card. Will the cash back be reflected under "Unbilled Transactions" or "Cash Rebates Unbilled" under Internet banking? I have yet to receive my Oct rebates.

The additional 5% for selected mobile app only for first 6 months of owning the card. Not many get to enjoy it.

If only 5% in Dec, means they are retracting the promotion, and they are not being honest.
Don't get it . While I am very much into idea of 10% rebate if that is correct - which part of DBS not being honest with regard to any promo retraction?

The announcement is up to 5% (without clear T&C) and cease of points rewards. The so call promo until Dec 2017 can be assumed to be in effect as part of the new benefit - as permanent fixture instead (but perhaps different crediting method). So it still ended up as 5% rebate.

Anyway - catch all clause is always there :
DBS may vary these Terms and Conditions or suspend or terminate the Promotion without any notice or liability to any party.

So yah - there is no such thing considered dishonest - legally. Unless DBS backtracked past event .

judging by the last update date of 6nov17 on the t&c of the online rebate promotion against the newly updated bank card update page to inform about non-issuance of points from 1dec17 onwards, i have a feeling that dbs

1. may cut short this current promotion (which has been extended 3234852349 times), to cease at end of this month prematurely instead of 31 december

or

2. award a higher % cashback or higher monthly capped limit for cashback in lieu of points

If 5% is permanent fixture then there is no promo in Dec if there is just 5% in Dec.

Where u looking? https://www.dbs.com.sg/personal/cards/credit-cards/live-fresh-dbs-visa-paywave-platinum-card
Click on the "other terms apply"
I thought that was just about the conditions for the promotion only. Anyway, seems that there are a number of exclusion for the cash back under the promo in point 3.1.1. Does it mean that those reflected in the exclusion will be eligible for the normal cash back rates after the promo is over? Or is it a case of permanently not eligible regardless promo or not?

The TnC for the permanent 5% not out yet. But I can safely assume the same exclusions will still apply.

i guess it should follow the cashback guidelines of the posb everyday card.

Dun know what you guys are on about. First complain on the points = worthless. Then cash back also complain. Seriously?

actually I'm not sure if the validity of clauses allowing a contracting party to change the terms at will has been tested in court. For the camp that says it is valid, imagine this, would a change to say "all your points expire tommorrow" or perhaps "you now need to pay $1000 to redeem" or even "you now need to pay me $1000 per day you own the card" be valid? If not, then where do we draw the line? My own view is that the validity is in qn, but the banks use that just to get negotiating power. Its like those forms that schools use for excursions saying "we are not liable for negligence if your kid gets injured". These clauses are clearly invalid at law (clearcut compared to this bank tnc) but still they continue to do that to use against pple who might not be so well acquainted.. Btw I'm just speaking generally, not pointing at anyone.

Not really. Cashback only for contactless/online transaction, you can clock other non-online non-contactless spend to meet the $700 but dun earn cashback.
