Last day: Get S$250 cash upon approval for a DBS/POSB credit card- no min. spend required

Apply for a DBS/POSB credit card by 8 Nov 20 and get S$250 cashback upon approval- just make one transaction of any amount.

I came across this a little late, but here’s an easy way to pick up S$250 cash without a whole lot of hoop jumping.

New-to-bank customers who apply for a DBS/POSB credit card by 8 November 2020 will receive S$250 cashback when they apply with the promo code FLASH250. All they have to do is  make at least one transaction of any amount within 30 days of approval. It’s that simple. 

⚠️ 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

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


DBS frequently runs these acquisition offers, but more often than not they’re tied to a certain minimum spend. This represents a better deal, insofar as you just need to make one transaction of any amount. 

If you’re new to DBS cards, definitely consider applying for the DBS Woman’s World Card (men can apply too) and using it for the first S$2,000 of online spending every month. Alternatively, the DBS Altitude Visa/AMEX can serve as a good all-round general spending cards, and earn 3 mpd on online hotel and airfare bookings.
