DBS Extra Bonus Day: 8% bonus cashback on petrol, taxis, public transport and more


On 2 February 2022, earn 8% cashback on all transport expenses charged to your DBS/POSB credit cards, capped at S$8.

DBS’ latest Extra Bonus Day promotion takes place on 2 February 2022 (2.2), and the theme this month is transport. 

DBS Extra Bonus Day

DBS/POSB cardholders can look forward to 8% cashback on bus & MRT rides, ride hailing, rental cars, EV charging and petrol spend, while PayLah! users can earn 15% cashback on ComfortDelGro, EZ-Link or Gojek transactions. 

No registration is required for either of these offers.

Earn 8% cashback on petrol spend, on top of regular credit card miles

On 2.2, DBS/POSB Credit and Debit Cardmembers will enjoy an extra 8% cashback on all transport transactions, capped at S$8 per Cardmember (regardless of how many DBS/POSB Credit or Debit Cards he/she has). This means you’ll max out the offer with S$100 of spend. 

A sample list of transport transactions has been provided below:

Category Description Examples
Public Transport Bus/MRT, Transit
Taxi Gojek, Grab, Comfort/ Citycab Taxi, Ryde, Tada
Rental Car BlueSG, GetGo, Shariot Carsharing
Petrol Esso, SPC, Shell, Sinopec, Caltex
EV Charging SP Digital

No minimum spend is required, and the cashback is awarded on top of whatever miles you’d normally earn with your DBS/POSB Credit or Debit Cards. 

✈️ Miles Options

DBS Woman’s World Card

DBS Altitude AMEX
1.2 mpd 1.2 mpd
*Capped at S$2,000 spend per calendar month
^Capped at S$1,000 spend per calendar month

If you’re using your DBS Woman’s World Card to pay for Grab or Gojek rides, for example, you’d earn 4 mpd plus 8% cashback. 

If you’re making in-person transactions (e.g. at a petrol station), then the DBS Altitude would be a better option with 1.2 mpd plus 8% cashback. 

The transaction date must be on 2 February 2022, but the posting date can be up to 12 February 2022 (most transactions should post within 1-2 working days). The 8% cashback will be posted to your card account by 18 February 2022, and the T&Cs for this offer can be found here.

I recently updated my article on the best cards to use for petrol, and in case you were wondering, SPC, Esso and Sinopec offer the biggest discounts to DBS cardholders. 

15% cashback on Comfort, EZ-Link and Gojek spend

Earn 15% cashback on Comfort taxi rides, capped at S$2

On 2.2, the first 25,000 customers to pay for Comfort, EZ-Link or Gojek transactions via DBS PayLah! will earn 15% cashback on their first transaction, capped at S$2 per customer. No minimum spend is required. 

The following payment methods will be eligible:

  1. Use the DBS PayLah! QR Code functionality and successfully scan the NETS QR Code generated on the NETS terminal (“Scan & Pay”) after completing a taxi ride on a Comfort Transportation Pte Ltd and/or CityCab Pte Ltd (“ComfortDelGro Taxi Ride”);
  2. Use the Online Checkout / Express Checkout functionality (“Online Checkout”) on the ComfortDelGro app or the Gojek app;
  3. Top up their account-based or card-based EZ-Link card (“Top-up”), for payment of goods and services in Singapore

This is a relatively modest promotion, which you’ll max out with S$13.33 of spending. 

Cashback will be awarded to your PayLah! wallet upon completion of the transaction. The full T&Cs can be found here.


DBS Extra Bonus Day

The latest set of DBS Extra Bonus Day focus on transport, which should be useful for anyone getting around Singapore for CNY visiting. I already use my DBS Woman’s World Card for gojek and Grab by default, so this is basically some free cashback straight into my pocket.

Don’t forget the PayLah! offer either, which gives you a free S$2 just by topping up your EZ-Link card.

Do you have any idea how this would tie in with the existing Everyday Card 6% rebate at SPC?
