HSBC only for a few sites, right?

This thread is about EZlink or Nets.
If EZlink, go for HSBC ezlink reload. Best in town. But make sure u can hit $300 ezlink per month. Not difficult as u can nominate 3 ezlink users, if you frequent cab, or if you are near giant/cold storage. :)

If I want to activate Ezlink function on my POSB Everyday card, and have Ez-reload to this credit card, I should call POSB or Ezlink?

In order to get 7%, one must hit min $300 spending on the HSBC Revolution cc per quarter right?

If yes, how does it calculate?

Let's assume...
June $300
July $300
Aug $300

So my rebate will be 7% x $900 = $63?
Thanks. :)

Yes, that's right. Assuming you spend $300 all on ezlink else your non-ezlink reload will not be entitled for 7%.

so troublesome, rethink Frank Credit Card Nets Flashpay purse, now u get 6% rebate for auto topup if you can charge $500 to the credit card per mth, then u can use the nets flashpay for mrt/bus rides, erp, and shopping/groceries as well.

It is auto topup for the Frank card for 6% rebate. For reasons unknown, the auto topup doesn't seem to work for retail outlets. I've tried with NTUC and even taxis. Only auto topups from bus readers and the MRT gantries.

Weird!

It is clearly stated in the T&C, auto topup only at mrt/bus. You can spend at all outlets where there is nets flashpay terminals, makes this card the best to me, haha!

thanks for the reply.

One con i can think of is the auto-top of $50 each time. You can't use the ezlink (assuming remaining bal is $10) on long taxi rides (assume >$20).

The auto-top can only be triggered by bus readers and mrt gantries.

Correct me if i'm wrong. :o

$50 per auto topup.

"The ATU will be triggered when you tap your card for MRT, public buses, ERP and EPS Cepas2 car parks and will be charged to your Frank Credit Card. This transaction will be able to enjoy 6% rebates."

In view of the prepaid credit cards thread. This card is best paired with them. In areas you cannot use NETS Flashpay, just top up the prepaid online to get 6% from Frank and then use the prepaid card to pay.

The Amex Imagine now has 5% rebate til 2014. Rebate and rebate again!

To think about FEVO and M1 Prepaid Mastercard, take CDG taxi, charge with Paypass, 10% rebate, collect 3 receipts paid with Paypass, free latte. PROFIT 3X.
