Hi guys. I'd like to sign up for DBS Multiplier, and I currently have a POSB Passbook Savings account and Debit Card. For their "credit card spend" transaction category, 1) Are transactions via my POSB Savings account / Debit Card counted? 2) If they aren't and I have to own a Credit Card, which card would you recommend given my low income level? Ideally with low annual fees / min spend.
I think all of the credit cards offered by DBS/POSB requires a minimum income of $30,000 per annum. Maybe you can consider the CIMB AWSM Credit Card. It has no annual fees and gives you 1% cashback on Dining & Entertainment, Telecommunications (Starhub/M1/Singtel/Circles.Life) and Online Shopping. If you sign up before 31 December, you can get a free Wave House Sentosa 1 hour FlowRider (worth S$40) and $30 credit if you spend at least $100 within 2 months from the date of your card activation. Check out the CIMB Awesome (AWSM) Credit Card here - https://www.cimbbank.com.sg/en/personal/products/cards/credit-cards/cimb-awsm-card.html
1) You have to spend with your credit card.
2) I dont remember DBS/POSB having any credit card annual income requirement below $30k except the student card.
