Useful credit cards

Post by mandaralawani » Thu, 21 Apr 2011 3:44 pm

Hi All,

I needed some help on the which credit card to subscribe, its benefits and charges..

uses will ideally be @ FairPrice, Shensong, Giants etc. for grocery, household items etc...
plus occassional shopping ..or eating out...maybe if some card can have better deals on airline ticket booking/movie tickets etc.

Also, are there any cards which have less /NO annual charges...and are there are minimum income level needed..?

Thanks in advance,
Mandar

Nak, you know that takes common sense. Unfortunately for most of the new OP's we see now common sense is rather uncommon. Wait a minute! We're talking about foreigners here, not locals! :lol:

have read that link

Post by mandaralawani » Fri, 22 Apr 2011 8:18 pm

i wanted to say...I have ALREADY that link(http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/ftopic68944.html) ...and EVERYTHING on it...

I just meant that it still concentrates more on Airline miles and very little on local rebates..

P.S.: by the way, I think its pretty mean to comment in such a way on someone asking for help..

Was there information on rebates in that thread? Just because you thought there should be more doesn't mean there is. Remember, you are getting something for nothing, so it's not a professional collaboration of data.

If you've read enough posts here, you will know that we all like to take the mickey. It's helps to alleviate the frustrations of some of the questions we have to keep answering over and over and over and over ad nauseum because people are too lazy to use the excellent search facility here. What to do? :?
