It’s hard to find a cashback credit card that does not require minimum monthly spending, which helps this card stand out from its competitors. This card could also suit someone who travels frequently in order to make full use of the concierge service, which is usually only available to premium credit cards. While the annual card fee of S$192.60 is not insignificant, there’s a 3-year waiver that can help you decide if it’s the right card for you before you start paying yearly card fees.
