    Interests are based on min amount ($60,000), good choice if your salary is >6,000 due to salary credit (1.6% for SALA >6,000 via Giro). And you are eligible when meet 1 of 3 criteria. But bill payment must be >$35 per bill for getting the 0.8% interest and card spending 1,500 per month. BOC extended the # of ATMs and share ATMs with Maybank when you see the logo "ATM 5", you can find 3 nearby ATMs if stay in Serangoon and AMK due to new branch in AMK HUB L3 and 2 ATMs in NEX shopping mall.

    Switched over from ocbc360 and no regrets. just park extra cash here and pay 3 bills and earn more interest than ocbc. cap at 100k and more int beyond 60k. cons is their PRC based call centre and online banking interface. it's are not tech savvy and so don't expect much. hard to find atm but it's good cos it means u can't withdraw.

    An "upgraded version" of OCBC's 360 account. Harder to hit, lower cap at $60k. But its credit cards offerings are much more dynamic: BOC Family: same as OCBC 365, but 1-2% higher rebate. Some cards offering dual currency (SGD/RMB or SGD/USD). Some cards with no foreign transaction fee.
