Question DEBIT cards annual fees waiver policy

dear experts

anyone knows about the annual fees waiver policy for DEBIT cards?

is it difficult to get waivers for DEBIT cards?

is it the same situation as CREDIT cards?

seems like in this forum everyone talks about the fee waiver for CREDIT cards.

Thanks in advance

get debit card that don't charge annual fee, you will save yourself the headache. (make sure you have a savings account with that bank that u choose to have debit card with)

get only those cc that give you something in return that is of value to you if you want to go for cc.

with reference to your other thread, annual fee is also another means for bank to earn revenue.

Its not hard to find debit cards in Singapore with zero annual fee. Examples:

DBS/POSB: Most $0, but the DBS Takashimaya Debit Card has a small annual fee after 3 years
Citibank: $0
OCBC: $0 for the FRANK (standard design) and Yes! cards
UOB: All have annual fees (eventually), but 3 of them have annual fee waivers with at least 12 yearly transactions (of any amount)
CIMB: $0
Maybank: $0 for the Platinum Debit Card
Bank of China Singapore: $0
ICBC Singapore: $0
Standard Chartered Singapore: Sometimes $0, but depends on account type.
HSBC Singapore: $0
