1. Minimum monthly spend required on credit card for bonus interest:
2. GIRO Payments of Bills
3. Salary Crediting
*Bonus interest is only applicable to the first S$100,000 in the bank account.
With the latest series of changes to savings accounts' interest rates, we believe that the benefits of savings accounts will be highly limited, Standard Chartered's BonusSaver included.
We are anticipating many other savings accounts to follow suit. As such, we will hold off making verdicts until the dust has settled.
