11 Best Cashback Credit Cards in Singapore (2020)

Clara Lim
·24-min read

Cash back credit cards must be the most popular kind of card in Singapore. Sure, earning points or miles is nice and all, but lots of us would rather get cold hard cash rebates, thanks.

After all, wedding banquets aren’t going to pay for themselves, truffle fries don’t grow on trees, and that new Honda HR-V isn’t going to run on your hopes and dreams. Got free money leh, who don’t want? So let’s see what are some of the best cash back credit cards in Singapore.

Here are our picks for the highest cashback you can get, depending on your spending habits:

How do cashback credit cards work?

Before you get too excited about that hefty bonus cash rebate, remember that banks aren’t charities. They have to impose minimum spend requirements and cashback caps, or else they’ll just bleed money. So don’t get led astray by big fat cashback promises — the important details are usually in the T&Cs.

Here’s how they work:

The more money you spend, the more you stand to gain from a cashback credit card. So, whether you regularly spend a lot of money or you have one-off big expenses coming up, it’s well worth your time to research the cashback options.

The divisive UOB One Card works differently from most cashback cards. The rebates are completely flat – either $50, $100 or $300 – and are paid out quarterly.

To get the highest rebate of $300, you need to spend EXACTLY $2,000 each month for 3 months consecutively. Same formula applies for the $50 ($500 x 3 months) and $100 ($1,000 x 3 months) rebates. Unlike other cashback cards that reward you for spending more, there’s no point doing so with the UOB One.

If you want a respectably high cash rebate on all purchases without having to track your expenses to a T, consider the HSBC Advance card.

To get that lovely 3.5% rebate, you have to first become a HSBC Advance customer (just credit a monthly salary of at least $3,500 to a HSBC account). You also need to spend $2,000 a month. If your spending falls below that, you still get a respectable 2.5% cashback. Rebates are capped at $125.

You can still get the HSBC Advance Credit Card if you are not a HSBC Advance customer. However, your cashback is much lower (1.5% to 2.5%) and so is your cap ($70).

While they won’t give you a sweet double-digit rebate, unlimited cashback cards are good for momentous (read: expensive) life events, like weddings and home renovations, which would easily burst the cap on most other cashback credit cards. With no minimum spend or cashback caps, they are complete no-brainers to use too.

The Amex True Cashback card is currently the best of the lot, since it offers 3% cash rebate for the first 6 months, up to $5,000 spent. Subsequently, it’s 1.5% cashback on everything.

The other options are: StanChart Unlimited Cashback card (1.5% cashback), Maybank FC Barcelona (1.6% cashback; additional 1% cashback on foreign currency spend), and the ICBC Global Travel Mastercard (1.5% for local, 3% on foreign currency).

These credit cards are best for those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of minimum spending requirements, but still want a decent rebate for day-to-day expenses.

The Citibank SMRT Card is a great basic cashback card for just about anyone who takes public transport, goes to Starbucks and McDonalds, and buys stuff online every now and then. I know, I’ve just described your basic everyday Singaporean.

What’s great is that there’s no minimum spend requirement. But if you spend at least $300 monthly, you get 5% on rebates! Score. You can pair this with a dedicated credit card for your major expenses (e.g. dining) so you needn’t worry about tracking too many cards.

8% cash rebate on dining, groceries and petrol with minimum spend of $888 each month? Huat ah! No wonder the Citi Cash Back Card is one of the most popular cashback cards around.

But note the $25 cap in each bonus cashback category, which limits your spending to about $300 in each category. Still, spending $300/month each on dining, groceries and petrol seems about right.

If your spending habits are a bit more fluid and you don’t want to spend too much effort trying to maximise your rebates, the DBS Live Fresh Card is a pretty viable alternative.

You get 5% rebate on two main categories: (a) online spending and (b) contactless payment i.e. Visa PayWave, Apple Pay etc. That’s it. So as long as you’re buying your household needs online or tapping your card/phone at the PayWave terminal, you’re going to get some kind of cashback.

There’s a minimum spend of $600 a month and a split cap of $20 for each category (online and contactless), which is rather stingy, but oh well, that’s the price you pay for a relatively hassle-free everyday-spending card. If you don’t meet this minimum monthly spend, you will still earn 0.3% base cash rebate on all transactions.

If you regularly spend $300 to $400 on online purchases, the DBS Live Fresh Card is a good option for online cashback.

Although there are credit cards advertising higher cashback on online spending, such as CIMB’s 10% cashback. I picked the more modest DBS Live Fresh because I find it more versatile as it also gives cashback on contactless payment (not category- or merchant-specific). Therefore, it’s easier to hit the minimum spend of $600.

Strictly for hardcore Qoo10 fans, the Bank of China Qoo10 Mastercard gives you up to 10% rebate on Qoo10 purchases… and the rebate is in Qmoney. (Other online purchases get 3% rebate.)

It also gives you rebates in a whole bunch of other categories like entertainment, dining and overseas spending, so the minimum of $800 isn’t hard to meet.

The thing to be wary of is that rebates are in Qmoney instead of “real” cash, so you’re basically stuck on the platform. Rebates are also capped at $40 (for Qoo10 purchases) + $40 (for everything else).

No matter how broke Singaporeans claim to be, it seems that luxuries like eating good food, watching the latest blockbusters and taking Grab everywhere are totally non-negotiable.

So it’s no surprise that banks are aggressive about promoting their dining rebates cards, and these are often bundled with entertainment and/or Grab rebates. (Note: High rebates mean it’s easy to burst the cap, especially if you’re paying for a group. So watch out for that!)

Despite its name, BOC Family Card isn’t just for tired moms and dads to pay for infant care and nappies. Its highest rebates (10% too) are actually for dining and movies, two things that Singaporeans of all age groups do.

You also get up to 5% rebates at supermarkets and Family Club merchants (eg. Harvey Norman, Eu Yang Sang, Watsons), as well as on online purchases. That’s not stunning, but the multitude of categories help hit the minimum spending requirement of $800 a month. Unfortunately there’s a cap of $25 for dining and cinema rebates.

8% cash rebate on dining, groceries and petrol with minimum spend of $888 each month? Huat ah! No wonder the Citi Cash Back Card is one of the most popular cashback cards around.

But note the $25 cap in each bonus cashback category, which limits your spending to about $300 in each category. Still, spending $300/month each on dining, groceries and petrol seems about right.

The UOB YOLO Card is squarely aimed at young’uns with no need for cashback on boring stuff like groceries, bills and petrol. Instead, it just focuses on a big fat 8% rebate on weekend dining, entertainment and Grab rides (3% rebate on weekdays).

As a bonus, you get 3% rebates on online (fashion) shopping and travel bookings, because what’s a #YOLO card without those categories right?

You do need to hit the minimum spend of $600 a month to get these rebates, though that’s not difficult — just foot the bill a couple of times and get your friends to PayNow you their share.
