Seems like this 7% cashback is until end June 2015?

it could meant that the internet spending is still 7% but other clause changes accordingly. Anyway, sticking to frank for the 1/12% int under OCBC 360 account.

aiyo, know how to see but dun know how to read ah:

"Effective from 1 July 2015, you must charge a minimum amount of $600 to your Card within the statement cycle. Maximum CashBack awarded for any statement cycle is capped at $60 per principal card account. You will earn CashBack of 2% for supermarket and 0.2% on other selected qualifying retail transactions."

Now the min spend is $500, 6% for supermarket, 0.25% for others and 7% for online, capped at $50. So what will change and what will stay? 7% stay lor, better cap at $60, less rebate for supermarket and others lor, hahaha

This thread is only in it's 34th post and there are already multiple sarcastic remarks. swordspirit already pointed out the 7% will stay. don't know why there is a need to repeat this point and rub it in.

Looks like they can exclude a lot of things under the term "retail transaction". Suggest trying a small amount from your usual online favourites adding up to the minimum $500 then see if you get the rebate. If not, phone up to ask one by one which one dun qualify. Up to you whether to share or not. Has its pros and cons. Share and everyone might chiong and the merchant gets put on the Exclusion List. Don't share and ppl will wonder why this thread so quiet everyone not helpful.

Remember the consequences of dork and dork sharing about Frank. Frank is now not as useful as before.
purple is right

Intriguing! The $500 requirement is somewhat annoying. But could be useful for when making large purchases online.
FRANK card also got $500 requirements anyway... so this card is better... some more got 6% for supermarts... or 2% (still better than nothing) from 1st jul onwards...


regards,
wacky

Order online. Then phone and ask cso if that is online transaction or not.

Good thing is they give you the month's rebate on the next day of statement cut off. So you don't have to wait like for other banks. I'm going to try out some transactions next mth near my billing cut off. According to the CSO, the 7% started from 26 Jan but she is only able to copy and paste the terms from the site regarding transactions eligibility. So its up to us to trial and error.
