According to this thread, https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/m...5846982-3.html, you inherited a sum of 7 digits figure. In that case, actually you can apply for 'secured' credit facilities, e.g. simply put a fixed deposit with UOB. Pretty sure they will be happy to give you UOB One Card.

UOB is probably viable, and they have a pretty decent 10 month/$20,000 fixed deposit promotion at the moment. Also, HSBC might still offer its Secured Platinum Visa Card, and that credit card is fairly attractive for petrol rebates.

Or you can get rebates on your petrol purchases using Standard Chartered's XtraSaver debit card and current account. There are some rules to follow, though:

1. You need to keep your account balance above S$6,000 at all times in order to qualify for the attractive petrol rebate.

2. Only the first $571 of petrol purchases per month will qualify for their 7% petrol rebate.

3. The debit card itself costs $20/year, and there's a $2/month fee to maintain the account ($24/year). So if you're not a fairly heavy petrol purchaser, this account doesn't make sense.

Besides FD, you can also get supplementary card from family members if they are okay to give you 1.

Just walk in to any bank branch for the credit card u want, place a $10k fixed deposit to secure the credit card, u will get the credit card upon approval with up to 10k credit limit.
Interest on fd at normal board rate, dun expect promo rates.

Alternative use dbs debit card to get up to 10% rebate
