Learn about entertainment credit cards
Find out how to use an entertainment credit card to get more out of your social life.
How can I decide which entertainment credit card is best for me?
Take a look at where your entertainment spending usually goes. (Your existing credit card statement — or bank statement if you are currently using a debit card — may give you a good guide.) Then choose a card that rewards your personal spending pattern. For example, if your Saturday night sees you taking an Grab ride, catching a movie, then grabbing something to eat and drink at a popular bar, look for a card that gives high rebates or points/miles on Grab plus local entertainment and dining, especially one that has higher rewards for weekend spending.
But if retail therapy (whether online or at a physical store) is your idea of a good time, you’d be better off choosing a card that rewards shopping with points, miles or cashback — you may even be able to find a card that has higher rewards at your favourite shopping destinations, such as department stores.
How much does it cost to have an entertainment credit card?
The annual fee will vary depending on the quantity and quality of rewards and perks attached to the card. It is likely to be in the region of $160 to $320 a year, but there is often a fee waiver for the first one or two years, and sometimes a further waiver in any year where you reach a spending target (e.g. $12,500) using the card in the previous year.
In addition to annual fees, you may have to pay a 2.5%-3.5% foreign transaction fee on overseas purchases (including those made online). And don’t forget the possibility of interest charges and late payment fees if you fail to repay your entire balance on or before the payment due date.
What counts as entertainment spend?
The entertainment category typically encompasses food and drink purchases at restaurants, cafes, bars, and clubs. It may also extend to spend at cinemas and various music, TV, and movie streaming services. Spend at sporting events and concerts may also be included.
It is important to note that there are typically restrictions in place. For example, a higher rate may be in place over weekends. Another common restriction is that certain brands may be eligible and others won't be. Therefore, it is important to familiarise yourself with exactly what does fall within the entertainment category and what doesn't—before you head out!
