How credit cards work

A credit card is a form of unsecured credit issued by banks. It allows users to make purchases without having to use cash and withdraw money from ATM machines. All credit cards come with a credit limit which is determined by the bank’s assessment of your ability to make repayments.

Credit cards are different from debit cards which are tied to actual money in a savings account. When you use a credit card, you are essentially borrowing money from the lender to pay the retailer. Then you receive a statement at the end of each billing cycle that tells you the total amount you owe the bank. By making the repayments promptly, you will not be charged any interest fees.

There are many types of credit cards available that allow you to earn various types of rewards, air miles and rebates.

Rewards cards

A rewards card can be a worthwhile way to get something back from your spending. Whether you’re a frequent flyer, loyal customer or big grocery spender, you can find a rewards credit card to suit almost any lifestyle.

  • The major draw of this type of card is earning points that can be redeemed for rewards. Depending on the card you use and the promotions in place, you may be able to earn bonus points when making certain types of purchases or shopping with a particular retailer.
  • What you can redeem your points for will vary from card to card. Some allow you to redeem points for flight rewards as well as shopping or travel vouchers. Others can be used for cash back, to redeem merchandise or even to donate to charity.

Cashback

Like a rewards card, a cash back card gets you something back on your spending. Cashback cards pay back a percentage of your credit card spend, usually as a statement credit. You could receive, for example, 1.5% back on every dollar of spending.

  • Cashback cards have the benefit of being straightforward: you don’t need to worry about the best way to maximise your credit card rewards, you simply get paid a fixed percentage.
  • Your cashback is credited to your account automatically, so you don’t need to worry about points expiring, or the loss of accumulated rewards due to account closure.
  • With the right card, cash back is effectively a permanent discount on all your spending – as long as you repay your balance before interest charges start.

Air miles

There are a lot of ways to get a return on your credit card spend and for the savvy traveller air miles can be a very attractive alternative to broader rewards cards or cashback cards.

  • Used for the right flights or flight upgrades, redeeming air miles can offer some of the highest percentage returns on every dollar you spend compared to other types of credit card rewards.
  • You can often transfer your air miles into other points programmes, including car hire or hotel loyalty programs.
  • Air miles are usually awarded on all of your credit card spending, no matter where you pay your air miles card will earn you something back.
  • Look out for accelerated earnings when you use your card while you travel.

Shopping rewards

Many credit cards offer discounts at selected stores when you pay with your card, or offer an accelerated reward earning rate at specific stores. If you regularly shop at certain retailers getting the matching card can save you a lot of money.

  • Expect to see significant discounts in the order of 10% to 15% with some cards and retailers, or offers such as saving S$20 when you spend at least S$80.
  • Accelerated rewards earnings rates are essentially the equivalent of a discount: earning 10X the rewards when you shop can work out to be a significant return in percentage terms.

Dining rewards

If you like dining out think about a card that offers discounts on dining or a higher cashback or rewards earning rate on your restaurant spend.

  • The savings on eating in a restaurant when you pay with a credit card that offers solid dining benefits can be very attractive, including two for one dining offers and discounts of up to 50%.
  • You could qualify for other benefits including special events.
  • Credit card dining benefits cover a range of tastes and preferences so there’s likely to be a card that offers discounts and benefits at your style of restaurant.

Petrol rewards

The savings you can get on a credit card with petrol discounts can be excellent, including savings rates of over 20% on some cards, so it is really worth paying for filling up your car using a suitable credit card.

  • Get a mix of on the spot discounts, cashback on your statement and rewards points when you pay for petrol with your credit card.
  • Petrol discounts cover a wide range of service stations around the country.
  • Your petrol discount is usually uncapped, you can save money every time you stop to fill up.

Understanding APR

If you’ve used your card for purchases, your debts begin to collect interest. This is called an APR, or annual percentage rate, and it usually hovers between 11.99% and 20%.

Each month, you’ll receive a statement that will detail the transactions you’ve made, the total outstanding balance you have and any interest you’re accruing. While you’re only required to pay a minimum repayment each month (2-3% of your total balance), it’s best to pay as much as you can. If you pay your entire balance in full, you can usually take advantage of up to 55 interest-free days in the next statement period. If you don’t pay your entire balance in full, the remainder will start to collect interest. If you miss the minimum repayment, you could be charged late payment fees.

Credit card costs

  • Repayments. You’re free to repay as much as you like as often as you like. You’re required to make the minimum repayment when your statement is issued. The minimum repayment is usually 5% of your outstanding balance. You will pay a late payment fee if you don’t make the minimum repayment by the statement due date.
  • Annual fee. This is the cost to own a credit card. The annual fee ranges from S$0 to hundreds of dollars depending on the credit card type. The credit card annual fee is deducted from your available credit and accrues interest at the purchase rate if it isn’t paid in the first statement period.
  • Interest rates. There are no interest charges levied on your purchases if you pay off the card balance within the grace period. Beyond that, credit cards here typically charge an interest of 24-28% per annum on your card balances. As the interest is compounded and charged on a daily basis, they can easily accumulate if you keep rolling over your balances month-on-month.
  • Other fees. Other fees you may run into include late payment fees, overlimit fees for spending past your credit limit, rewards program membership fees and cash advance fees.

6 credit card application tips

  1. Assess your needs. Before you begin your search, spend some time considering what you want, need and can afford with your next credit card.
  2. Compare your options. Once you’ve decided what type of card you want, it’s time to begin comparing your options.
  3. Are you eligible? Know the requirements for the card application – do you need a minimum income, and do you meet the age limit?
  4. Know your credit score. You should request a copy of your credit history before applying, so you can correct any possible errors on it and see exactly what the bank will be seeing when they assess your application.
  5. Lower your credit utilisation ratio. If you already have a credit card balance, it’s wise to pay off your existing balances before submitting a new credit card application.
  6. Don’t apply for multiple cards at once or within a short period. You may be tempted to apply for a second card just in case your first one doesn’t get approved, but don’t. Each credit enquiry that a lender makes about your credit history leaves a new mark on your credit file for five years.

12 essential credit card tips to ace your application

Credit card eligibility

Make sure you confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria before you submit your application, as rejected credit card applications can have a negative impact on your credit score. Eligibility requirements usually include:

  • Age. Cardholders must be at least 18 years of age for student cards, 21 years old for regular credit cards
  • Residential status. Most credit cards are open to application for Singaporeans, permanent residents(PR) and foreigners alike, subject to varying income requirements and additional documents.
  • Minimum income. The minimum income requirement will vary between cards, but they usually start at S$30,000 p.a. for most basic credit cards and S$80,000 and above for higher-tier products.
  • Credit history. All credit card issuers require applicants to have a good credit history.

Understanding your credit score

In Singapore, bankers and lenders mostly rely on the CBS credit score to determine the repaying capacity of the applicant and the probability of default on loans. The CBS Credit score is a 4 digit number computed by the Credit Bureau Singapore (CBS) based on the applicant’s record of past repayments of loans and credit card debts.

The score ranges from 1000 to 2000, whereby 1000 indicates a high risk of default and is thus considered a poor credit score. Conversely, 2000 is an excellent credit score, indicating the lowest risk of default. The credit score is accompanied by a risk grade, the lowest risk grade being AA and the highest being HH.
