300$ spending for HSBC revolution card
HSBC Revolution Card looks good for Ezlink and dining at RQ, CQ, however one has to keep close track on this card, because:
- rebates are limited to S$100 per quarter
- up to 5 months waiting for rebate (they credit within 2 months after quarter ends)
- no point to spend more than S$350 per month on this card.

You take public transport using cash?
yes i used cash, very minimal spending on public transport. using these on merchants are not friendly.

Not everybody is like you, we need to take public transport everyday so having ezlink card is necessary. I frequently use it when i go cheers/cold storage/shop&save, its convenient enough for me while saving me money over using cash.

It is still a primarily a transport card. If you can fit at least $300 of payments to it per month, then it is fine. But still I am lamenting due to its lack of merchant options and restrictive nature which is not good for me with an increasingly amount of competing average payment options. It adds to a cluttered lifestyle while only giving marginal benefits.

No need to use $300, i top up my card and my gf card which make up $200 or so then spend another $100 on my ANZ card ok already. $10 cashback + miles. Compared to $0 benefits using cash or nets top up, no horse run. Everybody who take public transport benefits from it, its not for those car drivers.

Not true. If you have the new IU which accepts CEPAS cards, a credit card linked EZLink card is very useful.

No such charge, except for the usual $0.25 convenience fee for auto top up.

Hi, have you done that already? using your hsbc card to pay for ANZ to make up $300 min purchase, besides ezlink reload?

I used online Ezlink Top & Tap to top 6x$100, but can't update the 6th $100 into Ezlink stored value at AXS as it says the Ezlink max stored value is $500 only. What to do?

Called Ezlink hotline but can't answer and only told me they are going to check.

I just got this card....may update my status on the redemption of the 5% cash rebate.

NETS : Get 5% Rebate with the McDonald


I think it is quite easy to hit the 200bucks retail spending to get 10 bucks in cash rebate.

From the Terms and Conditions
Promotion is only applicable to the McDonald’s FlashPay Card purchased from 19 March 2013 till 31 December 2013 or while stocks last.

5% rebate is only applicable to a minimum monthly spend of $30 using the McDonald’s FlashPay Card excluding payments via Kiosks, ERP and transportation fares and charges, capped at a maximum rebate value of $10 per card per month.

For McDonald’s FlashPay Cards that were purchased and used for transactions in the months of March 2013 till July 2013 with a minimum spend of $30 per month, the accumulated rebates will be available for redemption from 15 August 2013. For subsequent rebates earned in a calendar month from 1 August 2013 onwards, the rebate value will be available for redemption from the mid of the following month from 15 September 2013.

To redeem the 5% rebate, the customer is required to proceed to any "Add Value Machine (AVM)" located at selected MRT stations, bus interchanges and major bus stops.
