Want to be lazy and save some money on public transport cost? It isn’t too hard to achieve that!
2 banks in Singapore are issuing credit card that enables you to save money and be lazy if you are using the bus/MRT/LRT everyday.
Both cards work the same way, you need to apply the EZ-Reload so as to enjoy the benefit of 2% rebate on the EZ-Reload transactions.
The biggest plus of having EZ-Reload is that you can save time on the ez-link Top-Up as it is billed to the credit card. Saves time on finding General Ticketing Machines (GTM) and Add Value Machines (AVM) to top-up the amount when it runs low. It also saves wallet space as one less card is needed.
Both POSB Everyday Card and Citi SMRT Platinum Visa Card offers 2% rebate but if you charge less than $600 on Citi SMRT Platinum Visa Card, it only rebates you 1.7%.
Because of this, I have switched to using POSB Everyday Card as my main travel card for the full rebate.
