As usual...bank's gimmick. Be aware!
I have been highlighting such gimmicks by certain banks for years!

I only post good deals by banks offering straight forward no gimmicks FD promotions.

Can someone please remind me, what is the procedure for moving forex (specifically USD) from one multi-currency bank account in Singapore to another multi-currency account in Singapore?

I understand FAST or other online transfer options are not available.

the 1.8% shown on their website is for the fastsaver saving account, and is not whole sum is getting 1.8% for this fastsaver. Check out their website to know more.

I usually do it with USD cheque drawn from respective current account.

Most banks would charge a fee for deposit of USD cheque. Usually can waive if priority / premier ... ask RM

SBI - dont charge. I placed USD FD with them before
HSBC Premier - RM waived fee

1. Use local clearing USD cheque, no charge/fee
2. Standard Chartered Bank USD$aver account but don't come with cheque book, they waived the 1.5% commission when you make deposits in USD.

UOB, OCBC, SC and some other banks have local clearing USD cheques.

I just started with CIMB 1.85% 12 months. Did not want to incur extra upfront savings deposits required by Maybank (1k extra for every 10k)

https://www.cimbbank.com.sg/en/perso...sit-promo.html

Promotion ends in 4 days.

in my view is the best FD 1.85% instead of maybank 1.88% but must lose out saving account deposit of 5k above.

Actually plan to go for 3year endw at hsbc of 2.5% but still pondering bcz of singlife, policypal and others endw.

cracking my head to maxise my fund.
