Reap savings as often as you run out of coffee, snacks, or other emergency supplies with a grocery credit card. That’s your best hack to extra points, cashback, or exclusive lifestyle benefits on your next checkout at a supermarket like Giant or Cold Storage.
All other purchases still get you 0.3% rebate
No. The rebate percentage for groceries can vary from 3% to 8% or more, and you may be able to increase your savings by getting instant discounts of up to 10% on a supermarket’s own-brand products when you pay with your card (making your total savings 18% on part of your shopping).
A single card may also have a range of cashback percentages on groceries, depending on how much you spend. Individual transactions below $10, or total monthly spending below $50, may earn nothing. Spending of up to $400 per month could earn a 3% grocery rebate, while spending over $400 on the same card could see your rebate percentage lift to 5% overall.
Choose the card which gives the best result for your habitual spending pattern and amount, and check the other benefits available with the card, in addition to the grocery cashback.
Yes, with most cards there is a monthly or quarterly spending target to be reached before the cashback is applied to total spending. Some cards will apply a lower rebate percentage to smaller monthly spending (e.g. below $300), while a higher rate applies to all monthly spending if it exceeds the set target. If there is a target spending level, it will normally need to be maintained during all three months of the quarter in order to qualify for the cashback.
It depends on the terms and conditions of the individual card. Some offer cashback for spending at all supermarkets, islandwide. So it doesn’t matter where you shop: at Cold Storage, Sheng Siong, Giant, Jasons, Guardian, FairPrice, or elsewhere. Other cards may limit cashback to supermarkets in both Singapore and Malaysia, while some apply the rebate globally (though it’s unlikely that you will be spending large amounts on groceries while travelling overseas). A few cards are very specific about where you can shop in order to qualify for the rebate, for example a card for 12% grocery rebates at FairPrice only, provided you have your salary credit going to the bank issuing the card.
What a dilemma, the best cashback credit cards and the best air miles credit cards are awesome!
No worries, you should apply for more than one credit card to complement your lifestyle if you can manage them.
Having more than one credit card means you get to combine different benefits from different banks, which are forever competing to give better perks. Every card has its unique strengths, like cashback on day-to-day expenses, amazing travel freebies, and privileges at swanky restaurants. Used thoughtfully, credit cards don’t only get you more value. They can also help you advance your lifestyle goals.

If you love your money as much as we do, pay your bills on time.
Interest is charged on the outstanding balance you carry on the bill. As long as you pay your bill in full before the due date, you won’t have to pay any late penalty fees or interest.
However, if you can’t pay the full amount on your bill, pay what you can, over the minimum amount specified, so you can minimise the balance that’s still outstanding. That helps you save on the interest and pay off the amount sooner.

Yes. You may be able to select more than one spending category on which to receive rebates, or the card may automatically give the same percentage rebates on two or more categories. Here are some typical examples of rebate and discount combinations:
Many cards have an overall limit, or limit by spending category, on the amount of cashback you can earn monthly, quarterly or annually. For example, there could be a monthly limit of $50 cashback, after which the rebate percentage drops to 0.3%. However, there are cards which have no limit to the amount of cashback you can receive. If your spending on groceries is particularly high, or if it is irregular (i.e. very low in certain months, very high in others), you need to look for a card with no minimum spend and/or no cashback limit.
