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:

UOB One Card Quarterly flat payout of $50 / $100 / $300 Spend $500 / $1,000 / $2,000 x 3 months consecutively
HSBC Advance Card 1.5%, 2.5% (with $2,000 spend) or 3.5% (with a HSBC Advance banking account) Cap at $70 ($125 if you’ve a HSBC Advance banking account)

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.

Cashback credit cards typically impose a minimum spend in order for you to earn a decent rebate, which is all fine and dandy for those with lots of regular expenses, but is real annoying for those who’re just trying to live more frugally.

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.

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.

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.

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.
