    Very high interest and quite easy to hit the requirement. Setting up a joint account would allow me and my wife to earn decent interest on both Multiplier accounts!

    Very high interest and very easy to hit the requirement. The only downside is the 3k minimum deposit..

  • Easy application and great interest rates! It is easy for fresh grads to hit 1.55 - 1.85% interest per annum and if you invest in ETF through DBS you could unlock a higher interest tier.

  • Love the no min spend for CC category! As well as the eligibility of CDP dividend crediting for the Investment category.

  • Good account for fresh grad or someone who just started working and do not have much money in their account. Easily 1.85% when you credit salary and credit card spending. However, requires more categories and higher monthly transaction to hit a higher interest.

There is no way to use a credit card to pay for another credit card's bill. Therefore, it won't work as described. =/ Here is everything about me and what I do best.

The only way to grow your money is to buy assets or earn an interest on them. If you don't want to take too much risk, then you can invest in bonds instead of stocks. Buying an investment grade bond fund can provide you income, potential growth, with very little volatility. Investing isn't always risky. It depends on what you invest in. Buying insurance savings plans like you did is also investing and they are lower risk portfolios that can give you 3-4+% over a decade or two.

Just not that only the first $20k in SCB JumpStart gets the 2% interest, anything above that is 0.1%. This means the $400 interest you earn per year would need to be moved out for it to work harder. So I'll keep $20k in SCB but keep transferring any amount above $20k elsewhere.

I think it qualifies! It's better to ask the customer service for better understanding for no issues.

Hi Kenny, Quite a number of differences between both accounts, so it does depend on whether you bank with OCBC or DBS, if your home loan is with any of the banks, etc. I will highlight the key points here. - OCBC 360 can award bonus interest just by the crediting of your salary, whereas DBS cannot - OCBC 360 needs $2000/mth salary credit as a minimum. DBS requires your 'transactions' with them to be more than $2000/mth to get the first layer of bonus interest - OCBC 360 bonus interest caps at $70K spread over the first $35K and the next $35K, DBS is $100K over the first $50K and the next $50K - The theoretical maximum interest is higher on DBS - Husband and wife can credit salary to a joint DBS account which will trigger the multiplier bonuses on their individual accounts (no word from OCBC on this) - OCBC award extra interest just by ensuring you increase your account balance. DBS does not - Both award interest if you get insurance or investment products from them, but I would caution against it. - OCBC needs a minimum spend of $500 on thier credit cards, DBS just needs you to spend any amount Those are the key considerations, in my view. So keep them in mind when deciding which would suit you better.

Hi Cassandra, Quite a number of differences, and they do make you jump through several criteria before giving the bonus interest, but I will highlight the key points here. - OCBC 360 can award bonus interest just by the crediting of your salary, whereas DBS cannot - OCBC 360 needs $2000/mth salary credit as a minimum. DBS requires your 'transactions' with them to be more than $2000/mth - OCBC 360 bonus interest caps at $70K spread over the first $35K and the next $35K, DBS is $100K over the first $50K and the next $50K - The theoretical maximum interest is higher on DBS - Husband and wife can credit salary to a joint DBS account which will trigger the multiplier bonuses on their individual accounts (no word from OCBC on this) - OCBC award extra interest just by ensuring you increase your account balance.

I use both the accounts and personally have not encountered any issues with amounts being different. Did you convert currencies too by any chance?

DBS Multiplier

Hi! Congratulations on starting your investment journey! However, since it is your first investment, here are a few things that you should assess before actually investing. You can start by assessing your insurance and emergency funds needs. Insurance should not be loo large, but enough to cover for risks. Emergency funds should be enough to cover 4-6 months of expenses and this fund can be left in the DBS Multiplier itself so that it can be used as and when required. The remaining amount can be used in investments. You should arrive at your financial goals and an investment horizon based on those goals. For major goals like retirement, you will typically have a longer horizon and for any other goals, you can have a short horizon. Once this is clear, you will also have to assess your risk profile. This will depend upon various factors including age, knowledge about the markets etc. Using the above information, you can arrive at the asset allocation and start investing. All of this may seem a little overwhelming since you are just starting out, so I suggest you look into robo-advisors. They will charge lower fees and help you go through your investment process smoothly and provide you access to international markets. I work at Kristal.AI, and it's my passion to evaluate various upcoming investment opportunities.

I am in the same situation as you but I have already jumped in the bandwagon.. The transaction starts 15th of every month I won't know the impact.I decided to do it because I am OK with the risk and since it is valid for 1 year only. Based on the advise you got, I would recommend you to wait and see if it is worth it.. Maybe if I remember, I will tell u if there is gain or. Loss few months later
