OCBC has launched a year-end spending promotion for the OCBC 90°N card (I still hate typing that °) with 150 prizes to be given away, including Dyson fans, Garmin smartwatches, JBL headphones and more.
Registration is required, so take a minute to do it- you might be surprised sometime down the road.

Qualifying spending will be based on transaction date (Singapore time), so there should be no issues with last minute spending on 20 December 2020.
While there’s no knowing for sure how much spending will be required to get into the top 150, there’s no harm registering your card just in case. The total prize pool is worth just under S$27,000, so there’s a potential surprise in store come February.
