But they will still make you call in to get it waived if you do not hit their minimum spend per year.
Lifetime fee waiver means no need to call in. Thats what waiver means.

See reply from OCBC:

The new Frank Card by OCBC... any good?

Titanium never used
Frank - about $10 a month, because my main card don't have paywave and sometimes i use paywave

How to get lifetime waiver? I have already cancelled half of my ocbc cards. Isn't it ironical? Those cards so uselsss yet ocbc insists on annual fee. Other banks have much better cards yet the annual fees are waived like no tomorrow.

Thumbs down

Today I received a charge of annual fee of $160 to OCBC CashFlo Credit Card and I requested for waiver. The OCBC CSO Officer told me that in order to enjoy the annual fee waiver, I must spend $5000 for the entire in order to enjoy the waiver.

This is ridiculous, cos it didn't communicated to the consumers during the signing of the credit cards especially on the $5000 spending requirement. Think it is really dirty of the bank to impose such a thing.

I am gonna cancel both my credit cards soon, if they don't process the waiver.
OMG, if i'm the bank, i also dont want customer like you.

spend so little still wanna open mouth big big LMAO... pls cancel...

good riddance...

Same happen to me. I asked for Robinson Card waiver, they refused, as I hardly use the Robinson card. But I spent quite some on the Platinum card and keep giving them fee for Balance Transfer.

I do not know why they should be so calculative (again citing the $5000 spending).

Anyway, I do not really care la. I just cancel the card, as I found OCBC card is evry lousy anyway.

Nope, I was made to call in for a waiver as I didn't hit minimum spend. OCBC's reply does not say it's a perpetual automatic waiver.

To be fair. At the time of your signing. Did anyone tell you that you can get waiver of annual fee?

Although, to be fair, if you read your statements from around October, there's a table with a section for "minimum spend requirement for annual fee auto waiver". This is set at $5k for most cards.

I have clocked >$5000 on my OCBC 365 and Frank last year but think they have lost their competitiveness. Don't see myself spending $5k on any of the cards in the next year. Intend to cancel all my OCBC cards.
