for supersalary scb..1.3%, do you need to setup GIRO for $1500, and for "new" customer? otherwise it is 1.1%?

If you have a mortgage with SCB, their Mortgage One is not bad.

Currently I have $60K with BOC Smart Save for 2.75%; and $80K for SCB e$aver for 1.28%.

I think this is the best combination comparing to other banks saving accounts like Maybank StepUp, UOB One etc., and for my case (one salary; $500+ CC spending for 5% rabte; bill payment for CC bill only).

any guru can advice if any better deal?

Thanks. But I thought with considering of BOC's 5-7% rebate on $500 CC spending, its SmartSave still beats Maybank Saveup down? $50K vs $60K also no good, right?

Also for 3 "products", BOC's 3x bill payment is like no efforts while Maybank's $300 Outward GIRO need some special efforts?

Well, for Citibank maxi gain, you can only count on some good rates after 12 mth if to start now?

(BOC cc does not seem to have the recurring bill payment feature
Intend to put town council and telecommunications bill to Maybank cc, that will be easier for me to meet the $500 monthly spending criteria.
But I agree that BOC Family card is more attractive than Maybank platinum cc.
If your monthly tax payment is more than $300, will be able to meet the maybank $300 GIRO criteria.
At counter 11 this month. From next month onwards, assuming 1 month SIBOR at 0.7%, will be 1.76%. )

Thumbs down

looks like may have to consider the short term endowment insurance plan

is it safe? "policy protected by SDIC"
Yes it is also covered under SDIC but on a different scheme with certain caps on the policy value etc. More info found on the SDIC website under Policy Owner's Protection Scheme.
