ANZ Switch MasterCard Platinum Credit Card

Some folks have asked me about Credit Card annual fees like which card should I pay annual fee for and the million dollar question: Which card has annual fee waiver for life?

So recently, I have started 2 credit cards with ANZ. They are ANZ Travel Card Visa Signature Credit Card and ANZ Switch MasterCard Platinum Credit Card. ANZ Switch MasterCard Platinum Card has annual fee waiver for life. So you will never have to worry about annual fee on this card.

Disclaimer: Use credit card responsibly.

[Deal] Takashimaya 10% Rebate

Standard

Last week, we mentioned about Tangs’ 12% rebate day on anyday of your choice here. That is still available. From today, another deal will start till this Sunday. Takashimaya 10% rebate. That is on top of existing rebate of up to 6% for Takashimaya card members.

Takashimaya 10% Rebate

There are a lot of products on sale and you can earn rebates at the same time. So good time to do your Chinese New Year purchase right? Definitely! Do go to both Tangs and Takashimaya to compare prices before purchase. See which side gives you better savings.

I have been shopping at Takashimaya mostly for Nespresso capsules (Unless I am in my Nespresso heaven in Europe.) or SodaStream syrups. (I am a drinks person at home.) So I do hold a Takashimaya Credit Card for that: DBS Takashimaya American Express Platinum Credit Card.

This card will earn you 6% rebate and additional 10% rebate on special days. Every SG$500 spent at Takashimaya will earn you 100 points which can convert to SG$30 Takashimaya voucher. You can also get SG$3 parking credits by spending SG$120 at Takashimaya. In Takashimaya Japan, you can also enjoy 5% discount. As a DBS card, it also entitles you to DBS points. Every SG$5 gives you 1 point so use that to redeem anything you want. DBS privilages islandwide is also applicable to this card. American Express SELECTS is also applicable to this card.

[Mobile Application] Stocard

Standard

How many of you are carrying your Starbucks card with you physically or via Starbucks mobile application? Do you have an Apple Watch or Android Wear device? Pay at Starbucks using your smartphone with Starbucks mobile application is too mainstream. How about paying with your wearables? You can with Stocard.

Storcard is a mobile application created by a company based in Germany. It allows you to create barcode based virtual membership cards for easy portability on your mobile devices and wearables. Cards supported are grouped by Hotels & Airlines and Countries. It has a good collection of cards in Singapore.

Storcard is good as it supports Starbucks special barcode format for payment and wearables. However, it falls short in merchant collaboration when compared to application like Perkd which I will cover in future. Both Stocard and Perkd support Timberland and The Body Shop membership cards. But Timberland and The Body Shop both use Perkd as their official virtual card application. They will send offers to their members using Perkd and recognize membership cards and offer vouchers on Perkd platform.

Mobile applications like Stocard or Perkd can be very useful in reducing numbers of cards that you need to bring with you. However, do be careful of certain merchants (The Soup Spoon and Tangs.) that only recognize their own application’s virtual card.

This application is available for FREE without ADs on Android Google Play and iOS App Store.

[Deal] Tangs 12% Rebate

Standard

Tangs do 12% rebate day for members frequently throughout the year. This time round, they are doing it with a twist. Instead of a fixed day, you can choose your own 12% rebate day at Tangs from 7th January 2016 to 7 February 2016. Just inform cashier accordingly when you want to activate your 12% rebate.

Tangs Application

Many of you may find it a hassle when Tangs stop their collaboration with Citibank. This means that we have to carry an additional membership card with us in our wallet. Here’s the solution: Tangs mobile application.

Just launch Tangs application, login with your Tangs account (Create 1 if you have not done so.) and you can launch your Tangs virtual membership card.
