With just a minimum outside spending of S$200, you get to earn 8% rebate on your purchases from the NTUC group of companies.
The downside of the card is that the rebates are disbursed in terms of LinkPoints, which will have to be redeemed separately. Compared to other cards which dole out cash rebates, the OCBC NTUC Plus! Visa Debit Card will require an extra step for the redemption of rewards.
