Expert review

The PAssion POSB Debit Card could be a great option if you like to be rewarded in multiple categories as you spend. This debit card lets you have a free PAssion membership for five years, giving you the chance to save on everything from travel (with Scoot) to bubble tea (LiHo) and more. Those who have families will appreciate the chance to get discounts at a range of fun attractions around Singapore through 1-1 passes (just make sure you’re within the first 100 redemptions at most of the selected attractions.)
