Apparently from 1 Jul, DBS has officially jumped into the bandwagon of cash rebates on online purchases!

T&Cs here: http://www.dbs.com.sg/iwov-resource...ave-platinum-card/livefresh_visa_plat_tnc.pdf

  1. Applicable to DBS Live Fresh Card only.
  2. The 6% Cashback for online retail purchases made in a calendar month between 1 July 2015 and 31 December 2015 (both dates inclusive) shall be awarded on the 16th day of the following calendar month or, if the 16th is not a working day, the next working day following the 16th day of the month. Cashback are capped at S$100 per Principal Card Account per calendar month.
  3. The 6% Cashback are only applicable with a minimum of S$500 retail purchases charged to the Card Account in the same calendar month the online retail purchases are posted to the Card Account.
  4. The 6% Cashback are only applicable for either
    • new DBS Live Fresh Principal Cardmembers whose Card Accounts are opened between 1 July 2015 and 31 December 2015 (both dates inclusive)
    • first 10,000 existing DBS Live Fresh Principal Cardmembers (whose Card Accounts are opened before 1 July 2015) who register via SMS to 76060 in the following format: LFONLINE<space>NRIC/Passport No.<space>Email Address between 1 July and 30 November 2015 (both dates inclusive).
  5. DBS Bank Ltd (the “DBS”) determines an online transaction based on system indicators. These indicators are decided by the merchant and their banker, and passed to DBS when the transaction is posted to the card.

Was gonna cancel this card until I saw this! :s13:

I sent a message to DBS, and according to DBS customer service:

For this promotion, customers must spend S$500 within the same calendar month for online purchase to qualify for the 6% cashback.

For example: If customer spends S$500 from 4 September to 30 September for online purchase, he/she will be eligible for 6% cashback. If the customer does not meet the S$500 online spending requirement within the same calendar month, he/she will not be able to get the 6% cashback.

We determine an online transaction based on system indicators. These indicators are decided by the merchant and their banker, and passed to DBS when the transaction is posted to the card.

Please see below:

1) Mysam.sg or AXS online - not eligible
2) Telco's own bill payment website - eligible
3) Any paypal transaction - eligible



Thanks wts2013 for the summary, I've updated point 4 to reflect the new Frank card T&Cs:

Which is the best Rebate Card for online now?

1. DBS Live Fresh: 6%, max $100 rebate/mth, min $500/mth, plus 3xDBS points
2. SCB Singpost: 7%, max $60, min $600
3. BOC Shop: 6%, max $100 ($60 online), min $1001
4. Frank: 6%, max $60, min $400 offline spend

Good to note the following:
  1. Spendings on DBS Live Fresh plays a part in DBS Multiplier Account, but usually difficult to meet total $7.5K cashflow to get 1.08%
  2. Spendings on Frank card plays a part in 360 Account, $500 spending on CC to get 0.5% extra bonus

okay wat, all new cardholders, if u existing cardholder then test your luck, hahaha

clause 5 more important, hahaha

No use to those who had the card for ages. The way they classify their online merchants shouldn't be any different if you have been using the women's MC.

DBS improved on their "first XXX" game. They will sms/email you a confirmation within 7 working days to confirm that you are amongst the first 10,000. No harm done, just sms to register, don't spend first, get the confirmation then start spending. 7 working days only, not like HSBC lol. Anyway it's 10,000 card holders and today is only the 7th, rather good chances:s13::s13::s13:

I interpret as all new cardholders + 1st 10k existing cardholders.

4.The 6% Cashback are only applicable for either new DBS Live Fresh Principal Cardmembers whose Card Accounts are opened between 1 July 2015 and 31 October 2015 (both dates inclusive) and the first 10,000 existing DBS Live Fresh Principal Cardmembers (whose Card Accounts are opened before 1 July 2015) who register via SMS to 76060 in the following format: LFONLINE<space>NRIC/Passport No.<space>Email Address between 1 July and 31 August 2015 (both dates inclusive).

I think should be BOTH a AND b,the word either seems strange

So $100 rebate max for all category, or 6% online transaction will receive $100 max rebate, and other 3%+3% for travel partner will receive unlimited rebate?

Not very clearly stated, but it's a good deal nevertheless.

As usual, DBS produces grammatical terms:
Applicable for (sic)
Either and (sic)

It shoud be applicable to either...or.
