DBS November offer: S$300 cashback for new-to-bank cardholders


Enjoy S$300 cashback when you sign up for a DBS credit card as a new-to-bank customer, with a min. spend of S$300.

From 2-15 November 2021, DBS is bringing back its largest-ever offer for new DBS/POSB credit card sign-ups.

New-to-bank customers will receive S$300 cashback when they apply with the promo code NOVFLASH and make a minimum spend of S$300. Previous offers only required you to make a single qualifying transaction, but it looks like a minimum spend of S$300 is the new standard going forward. 

⚠️ 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

Point Expiry

WWMC miles expire after 1 year and smallest transfer block is 10,000 miles for $26.75? Sounds like a bit of a chore trying to both hit goals and manage orphan points. I’ve been tempted to sign up to a DBS card to get the $300 but they aren’t very attractive.


Use Krispay to convert smaller points?
