OCBC 90°N Top Spender Campaign

The top 100 registered OCBC 90°N cardmembers with the highest amount of qualifying spending from 9 July to 31 August 2021 will win the following prizes:

51-100S$50 Takashimaya Shopping Centre Voucher

I’ve confirmed with OCBC that spending counts from 9 July 2021 onwards, regardless of when you actually registered. For example, if I spent S$1,000 on 9 July but registered on 10 July, the S$1,000 will count towards my total. 

Supplementary cardholder spending will be aggregated with principal cardholder spending, and each eligible cardmember is entitled to a maximum of one gift. All winners will be notified by 31 October 2021.

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

Qualifying spend also excludes transactions under Transportation and Tolls MCC 4111/4121/4131 except for transactions with Grab Transport, Gojek and licensed taxi operators (including, without limitation, Comfort/Citycab/ Transcab/ SMRT Taxi/ Premier Taxi/ Prime Taxi/ HDT Taxi). 

Spending on CardUp will count towards the minimum spend requirement, and OCBC is currently offering a 1.7% fee for up to S$10,000 worth of payments, so long as they’re set up by 24 August 2021. 

Qualifying spending will be based on transaction date (Singapore time) as opposed to the posting date, so there should be no issues with last minute spending. 


While there’s no knowing for sure how much spend will be required to get into the top 100, there’s no harm registering your card just in case. What you will need to consider is the opportunity cost involved in diverting spend to the OCBC 90°N Card as opposed to 4 mpd cards. 

In any case, just register and there may be a surprise awaiting you down the road.
