Let’s face it, in every universe in Singapore, driving is expensive as hell. But a petrol credit card can be your trusty hack to daily savings on petrol costs at Shell, Esso, SPC, or Caltex. Some offer instalment plans on essentials like motor insurance too.
Although there are a few cards with no cap on the amount you can earn, most cards will have a monthly limit (as low as $40 or as high as $100, depending on the card). Some caps are applied quarterly or annually. Q: Do I have to spend a certain amount on petrol or other items, in order to qualify for the cash rebate? Many cards have a very low starting rebate each month (e.g. 0.3%), but once a monthly target spending level is reached (e.g. $600 total purchases in any category) a much higher rebate percentage will be applied to all of that month’s purchases.
Each card will often specify which brands of fuel qualify for the discount and cashback, e.g. Caltex only, or Shell and SPC stations only, or Esso and Caltex stations only. But there are cards which offer cash rebates on all petrol spending worldwide, regardless of the brand, although the onsite petrol discounts will only apply islandwide.
In addition to an annual fee of between $80 and $195 or more, look out for possible foreign currency transaction fees of up to 3.5%, and don’t forget the high interest rate that will be applied to your purchase balance if you fail to pay it off on or before the monthly due date. Some cards waive their annual fee for the first year, or in any year that you spend a target amount, such as $12,500.
What a dilemma, the best cashback credit cards and the best air miles credit cards are awesome!

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.
