Upsized offer: Get $220 cash upon approval for DBS credit cards


From now till 10 July, new-to-bank customers can receive S$220 in cash upon approval for a DBS credit card.

From 25 June- 10 July 2020, new-to-bank customers who sign up for DBS credit cards will receive S$220 cashback. This is 10% more than the previous S$200 deal that ended a week ago. 

⚠️ DBS defines “new-to-bank” as customers who do not currently hold a principal DBS or POSB credit card, and have not done so in the past 12 months

Applications must be received by 10 July 2020, and approval given by 17 July 2020. You’ll receive cashback corresponding to your qualifying spend within 30 days of approval, up to a cap of S$220. 

DBS provides a list of transactions that do not constitute qualifying spend for this promotion.  Curiously enough, they’ve added local transport, petrol, and GrabFood to the usual list. It’s odd, but there’s plenty of other transactions you can do instead. 

a. posted 0% Interest Instalment Payment Plan monthly transactions;
b. posted My Preferred Payment Plan monthly transactions;
c. interest, finance charges, cash withdrawal, balance transfer, smart cash, AXS payments, SAM
online bill payments, bill payments via internet banking and all fees charged by DBS;
d. payments to educational institutions;
e. payments to financial institutions (including banks, online trading platforms and brokerages);
f. payments to government institutions and services (court cases, fines, bail and bonds, tax
payment, postal services, parking lots and garages, intra-government purchases and any other
government services not classified here);
g. payments to hospitals;
h. payments to insurance companies (sales, underwriting and premiums);
i. payments to non-profit organisations;
j. payments to utility bill companies;
k. payments to professional service providers (including but not limited to accounting, auditing,
bookkeeping services, advertising services, funeral service and legal services and attorneys);
l. any top-ups or payment of funds to payment service providers, prepaid accounts and any prepaid accounts (e.g. EZ-Link, NETS FlashPay, Singtel Dash);
m. any betting transactions (including levy payments to local casinos, lottery tickets, casino gaming
chips, off-track betting and wagers);
n. payments for local transportation;
o. payments for petroleum;
p. payments to telecommunication companies;
q. payments to GrabFood;
r. any transactions related to crypto currencies; and
s. any other transactions determined by DBS from time to time

Cashback will be credited to your account within 30 days from the date of card approval.

The full T&C of this promotion can be found here


I can’t think of too many people who don’t have a DBS or POSB credit card by now, but if you’re one of them, here’s a chance to pick up some extra cash while applying. 

I’d certainly be going for a DBS Woman’s World Card (men can apply too) and using it for the first S$2,000 of online spending every month. This will give you 4 mpd on things like Amazon, Lazada, Qoo10, air tickets, hotel bookings (which are paid for online), movie tickets and more.

The T&C is a bit confuse, charge retail transactions to the Card within 30 days from Card Approval Date and up to a cap of S$220 cashback

It didn’t mention how much to spend or how many times, does it mean just make one eligible transactions to receive the $220 after approval?

Singsaver additional T&C:
Get 100% cashback when you shop and dine, capped at $220, however didn’t stated in DBS T&C

Thanks Aaron


I read $220 cashback only applicable to retail transactions (within qualifying spend).
Meaning the cashback is not applicable to online transaction (even with qualifying spend)?
