Get S$130 cash or Samsung Galaxy Buds2 with a new CIMB credit card


From now till 31 October, apply for a CIMB card and get S$130 cash or a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds2 with S$1,000 spend in 2 months.

From 1-31 October 2021, new-to-bank customers who get approved for selected CIMB credit cards and spend S$500 per month for the first two months will get a pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds2 (worth S$248) or S$130 cash. 

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

For reference, here’s a rundown of the previous gifts we’ve seen offered:

  • September 2021: Huawei FreeBuds Pro or S$130 cash
  • August 2021: Marshall IV Headphones or S$130 cash
  • July 2021: Jabra Elite 75t earbuds or S$120 cash

The full T&C can be found here. 

Application Steps

  1. Apply through any of the links in this article
  2. You will be directed to a SingSaver landing page. Enter your email address and click “confirm”
  3. Complete your application and take a screenshot of the Application Reference Number (for CIMB, this is 8 alphanumeric characters, e.g 1-xxxxxxx)
  4. Fill in the SingSaver rewards form that will be sent to your email. It’s vital you fill in the form. No form, no reward. 

You’ll be able to indicate your choice of gift in the rewards form if applicable.

Qualifying Spend

The approved card must be activated and a minimum qualifying spend of S$500 charged in the first 30 days from approval, and another S$500 charged during the subsequent 30 days (i.e. S$1,000 total). 

For example, if your card is approved on 17 July 2021, your first 30 days runs from 17 July 2021 to 15 August 2021, and the second 30 days from 16 August 2021 to 14 September 2021. 

According to the T&C, qualifying spend refers to any retail transactions (including internet purchases) which do not arise from:

  • ez-Link/ Transit Link top-up and reload
  • Cash advances
  • Balance transfers
  • Fund transfers
  • CIMB 0% i.Pay Plan
  • Fees
  • Interest Charges
  • Amounts brought forward from previous statements

However, the CIMB T&Cs further restrict you from spending on:

  • Charitable donations
  • Government transactions
  • GrabPay top-ups 
  • Insurance
  • Utilities

Unfortunately, GrabPay top-ups can no longer be used to clock spend for CIMB sign-up offers. 

Gift Fulfillment

Gifts will be fulfilled by SingSaver within four months of meeting the qualifying criteria. The reason for the long delay is the need to confirm the qualifying criteria with the bank. If you’re not comfortable with this timeline, please don’t apply; you’re just going to get annoyed with the wait. 

Cash gifts will be fulfilled by PayNow, while merchandise will need to be collected at a specified redemption centre. 

Any enquiries about gift fulfillment should be sent to
