Hi Verbatin

The website says month but it does not say statement month or calender month. SCB is trying to be ambigious.

I confirm that the rebate is based on spending on statement month.

how come cash rebates is based on statement date?

it shd be based on calendar month. that's what's the www.wowmanhatten.com.sg says!

hmmmm

sorry for late reply...

based on wad they told me:

1. the cash-back for my case is calculated frm 23 Feb - 22 Apr, 23 Apr - 22 Jul, 23 Jul - 22 Oct, 23 Oct - 31 Dec

2. i spent $2500 during statement mth of 23 Feb - 22 Mar, so i'm given $51+ for cash back (2%)

3. i spend a total of $1270 during statment mth of 23 Mar - 22 Apr, so i'm given $12+ for cash back (1%)

based on the above calculation, the cash back is correct.

so now i have to wait towards the end of july to chk whether the cash back given for period of 23 Apr - 22 Jul is correct or nt......~
UOB One 's offer seems more palatable:
Over S$300 in cash rebates every year
Spend over S$800 each month* and you will receive S$80 cash rebate that quarter to offset your bill. Spend over S$300 each month* and you will receive S$30 cash rebate that quarter. What's more, no points or redemptions are necessary.
* Minimum three transactions per statement period in three consecutive month

update on my Manhattan card rebates with SCB. After so long, finally got a satisfactory answer. Basically, the calculations they used is actually correct, the problem was that the information given initially was off... they told me the my starting quarter month wrongly, so the numbers all went awry from there on. Also remember that the rebates calculation is not base on the posting date, but your statement date. especially important if you are cutting it close to the range. remember that merchants do not need to post it immediately.

i think by now they have more or less clean up their act, As some of the others posted, the rebate has been extended till december... so if you want to get this card, can consider. hope this help any one else who might be thinking of getting this card.



forumvrz - i am an existing user of the manhattan card and i have to admit that i encounter the same issue as what you quoted - their way of calculation seems to be messed up, and i am not getting the rebates amount that i am expecting. only mitigating fact is that they been contacting me to try to explain the fixes to me (albeit i have to wait quite a long stretch - i think they probably getting a lot of such queries, and i am still waiting for them to fix it). so... YMMV...

The other thing you would want to check is, when i signed on for this card last year, i remember they have a line saying that the rebate % amount will only be till June 2008 - you may want to confirm with them in case they drop the rebate amounts.

And taking Taxi's till 31 Dec 2008 just got better for Taxi Fares below S$5.60 at which point your savings is S$0.0088.

This is for a cab fare with Diesel Surcharge + 2.80 Flag Fare + 10% CC Admin Charge + 7% GST - HSBC refund for taking cab

The best rates would be at S$5 for me where I actually save 11.5-cents, that means I pay only S$4.885 for the cabfare when I charge S$5 to my Revolution Card. Great huh!

Calculation:
Cab Fare - ((Cab Fare x 1.177) - 1) = positive, the "-1" is refunded by HSBC for taking a cab
