The Citi SMRT Card offers rebates in the form of SMRT$, which can be exchanged for shopping vouchers for use at Giant, Sheng Siong, Watsons, Shaw Theatres, Popular and Pizza Hut. You can also enjoy discounts on shopping and dining transactions, among other things.
Citi SMRT is a great card for people who always commute via Public Transport and frequent the merchants around SMRT Exchange or Public Transport Interchanges. While its rebate per month is capped at S$50/month ($600/ a year), the low minimum spend continues to make this card attractive. To fully maximise the Citi SMRT Card, there is a minimum required spend of S$300, which is a very reasonable amount. The 5% coverage on groceries and certain food outlets might not be the best, but they are still pretty decent. Overall, this card is best for commuters with a thrifty lifestyle.
