How about DBS Visa debit card 5% cashback for contactless

These T&C dont seem to exclude SimplyGo:

Simplygo is not charged as paywave.

Based on what they said, don't think u can get 5% cashback when u travel on public transport.

Cashback will not be awarded for the following:

xi. payment or top-up of funds to payment service providers, prepaid accounts and any prepaid accounts (e.g. EZ-Link, NETS FlashPay, Transit Link, Singtel Dash);

Simplygo is not prepaid account/transitlink

are existing users entitled to the promos?

just found out i have an ABT account.
So just use any SCB account to tap in and out to get the $10 rebate will do right? no need to register on simplygo. i already have the scb sms approval.

thanks

All masters with paypass (contactless payment function) or can be added to mobile payment app (e.g. google/apple/samsung pay).

If the physical card has ezlink/nfp, need to make sure it is switched to bank mode via the GTM, before tapping

Anyone encounter same problem as me?
I took LRT 1 stop to and from compass one using apple watch(towards compass one) and iphone(Going back) and in Simplygo app, it shows missing entry and exit. and shows I'm charge $2 x 2 which by right should be $0.83 x 2.
Just to update, the deducted value is corrected after a few days in simplego app.. case close.

Any good MasterCard with good rebates to recommend? I am thinking CIMB world Mastercard. Why canít SG banks offer non annual fees card like CIMB banks or Apple. Sigh....

I'm not sure when the portal is updated.
I just checked and saw my 5.30pm bus ride transaction.
I will monitor my MRT ride update next week, just for fun
Update:
my MRT ride is updated in the portal almost immediately after I tap out

Should apply for the CIMB Platinum Mastercard if you want 10% rebate for SimplyGo (min spend on card $600). CIMB World mastercard don't have.

How does the Std Chart promo works ? Take $10 rides and that $10 rides is given back as rebate ?

I registered for Std Chart card promo and added the card in simplygo app to trace. 15 min later took mrt. The simplygo app gave notification and showed the transaction almost immediately after I exit MRT. Quite impressive. While I know can start to use the card immediately for bus and mrt, was wondering if the app will take some time before it starts to trace.
