    OCBC 360 Account

    [Interest] Interest earned on this account is starting to drop significantly. It is a primary savings account which I was faithfully doing all the different actions to gain the bonus interest. But now I find it getting less and less beneficial. Have moved my savings out to Robo-advisories instead.

    OCBC 360 Account

    Just cancelled all my OCBC saving accounts and credit card. Not only is the saving account removing most of the good benefits it used to have, it is now more tedious to enjoy the current benefits that UOB, DBS or SCB accounts would have provided. Credit card is worse, don't have good rewards points nevermind, refuse to waive off any late fees, interest or charges. All these are easily waived off in all the other banks.

    OCBC 360 Account

    [Fuss Free] I was previously on the FRANK account (student) and was automatically upgraded to 360 upon my graduation. The shift was seamless and I didn't have to settle anything on my end. [Terms and Conditions] The upgrade was also accompanied with benefits such as a waiver of initial deposits and waiver of fall-below fees for 12 months. Overall, it's a competitive savings account for a fresh grad.

    OCBC 360 Account

    [Fuss Free] [Online Banking] [Salary Crediting] Good to have a salary crediting account at OCBC 360. So far have reaped at least $100 interest monthly (estimate), with credit card spend etc. However, the customer service is slow.

    OCBC 360 Account

    I use the 360 for my salary crediting, and payment of bills. The bonus interest can be quite significant, especially for consecutive months where there was overall increase in my savings. Although the interest rate has been adjusted down recently, it definitely remains competitive compared to other accounts out there in the market. OCBC banking app is easy and convenient to use as well

Is OCBC 360 The Best Savings Account For You in 2020?

UPDATE:

In our latest OCBC 360 interest rates revision updates, we believe that with the multiple interest rates changes in 2020, the pros of OCBC 360 will become highly limited.

(The assessment below is based on rates after 1 July 2020 rate revision)

  • While it has many bonus categories, you do not need to meet multiple categories to get a decent interest rate. Simply crediting your salary is sufficient enough to get you a competitive interest rate up to 1.20% p.a.

Cons:

  • Balance amounts exceeding S$75,000 earns you base interest rates only
  • To fully maximise the interest rates, one has to keep track of many categories
