  1. Hello, are you able to amend your UOB credit card rebates table?

    As of Sep 2015, $500 spending every month is = 3.33% rebate, not 2% anymore.

    1. Noted. Thks. OCBC is also making changes to its credit card rebates on 1 Oct. Hence, I originally planned to update the computations in Oct. Anyway, I've made the necessary changes for both UOB and OCBC.

    2. Hi, is this the updated blog for the rebates as it states "accurate as at 20 Sep 2015." If not is there a weblink where I can see and calculate. Much appreciated you took the initiative to do this.

    3. Hi M.M, you're welcome. This reflects the latest interest rates & rebates as there have not been any changes since the last update.

  2. Hi, I entered $500 under Online/Offline Spending and I got Credit Card Rebate of $200 for UOB One. Seems unrealistic that the rebate is 40%, is there an error?

    1. Hi, the credit card rebate computed is for 1 year. The percentage rebate is 3.33%. For a monthly card spending of $500, the annual rebate is $200.

  3. Comparing OCBC and UOB credit card rebate, OCBC offers 0.3%-6% cash back depending on the spending. In the scenario that if I am able to spend $600 on dining for 3-6% cashback, would this be more favorable as compared to UOB?

    1. In order to obtain the 3-6% cash rebate, you need to spend min. $400 on offline purchases first. After that, if all the $600 spent qualify for 6% rebate, the OCBC credit card is more advantageous. However, if they only qualify for 3% rebate, the UOB credit card is more advantageous.

  4. OCBC also offers up to 6& cashback for some purchases when you spend $600 on OCBC 365 card. I understand that the 6% cashback does not apply to all spendings. But assuming if one only use that card for dining to get 3% or 6% cash back, would OCBC be a better choice?

    1. OK, I stand corrected. My earlier reply and the web calculator on this page is based on the Frank credit card. If you use the OCBC365 credit card and you are able to spend all $600 on dining, the OCBC365 card will give better rebates. You can use the web calculator to check the effective rebate percentage for the UOB credit card.

  5. Hi! What does no 4 means? New insurance or existing insurance?

    Can I also check if the 3 bills payment - can we include insurance payment? Thanks

    1. Hi. No. 4 refers to purchase of new investments or insurance. Note that the additional interest applies for only the first 12 months after you bought the investment or insurance.

      Yes, the 3 bill payments can include insurance payment.
