Great deal: OCBC Titanium Rewards sign-up bonus for new & existing customers

Last Updated:

From now till 31 March, enjoy 5,760/11,520 miles for existing/new customers with min. S$100 spend on a new OCBC Titanium Rewards Card.

The OCBC Titanium Rewards Card may not be quite as versatile as the Citi Rewards Card or DBS Woman’s World Card, but still has an important part to play in my overall card strategy. With an annual 4 mpd cap of S$13,335, it serves as a great solution for big ticket purchases, and you can double your cap by applying for both the Blue and Pink variants. 

If you don’t have an OCBC Titanium Rewards Card yet, OCBC is running an excellent sign-up offer from now till 31 March 2023. New and existing customers can earn 28,800 and 14,400 bonus OCBC$ respectively, with a minimum spend of just S$100. 

OCBC Titanium Rewards sign-up bonus

Apply Here

From 16 January to 31 March 2023, customers who are approved for a new OCBC Titanium Rewards Card (Blue or Pink) will be eligible for up to 28,800 bonus OCBC$.

 New customersExisting customers
Sign-up bonus28,800 OCBC$

14,400 OCBC$
(5,760 miles)
❓ Definitions
New customers are defined as those who do not hold an existing OCBC principal credit card, and have not cancelled one in the past 6 months.

A minimum spend of S$100 within the first 30 days of card approval is required. The gift can be clawed back if the OCBC Titanium Rewards Card is closed within six months from the end of the promotion period. 

For avoidance of doubt, you will only qualify for the sign-up bonus once, even if you apply for both the Blue and Pink variants

  • A new customer who applies for both the Blue and Pink OCBC Titanium Rewards Cards will receive 28,800 OCBC$
  • An existing customer who applies for both the Blue and Pink OCBC Titanium Rewards Cards will receive 14,400 OCBC$

Existing OCBC Titanium Rewards Cardholders are ineligible for this promotion. 

Is this worth it?

Definitely. 

For a mere S$100 spend, you’ll be taking home 5,760 or 11,520 miles. That’s a simply unbeatable spend to miles ratio (115 mpd!), and even if you chose to convert those OCBC$ to cash credit (please don’t), you’re still talking about a S$40 or S$80 rebate. 

Don’t forget that OCBC$ will soon be convertible to nine different airline and hotel programmes, so you’ll be able to trade them for some hotel points or “exotic” miles. A standard S$25 fee applies.

The OCBC Titanium Rewards Card’s annual fee is waived for the first two years. You can get an annual fee waiver from the third year onwards with a minimum spend of S$10,000, but in my experience, you don’t need to spend anywhere near that amount to get it.

When will bonus points be credited?

Your bonus OCBC$ will be credited according to the following timeline.

  • Mustafa Centre (discontinued from 1 March 2023 if MCC codes as 5411 [supermarkets])

The main drawbacks are the S$5 earning blocks, as well as the lack of transfer partners (which will no longer be an issue from February).

If I have a blue titanium, am I eligible as an existing customer if I apply for the pink titanium?

Brian M

Same situation, am wondering

JHH

Thanks Aaron for checking – so it’s 0 bonus points if I already have the blue titanium and apply for the pink titanium now. Interestingly the T&Cs don’t contain any definition of “existing OCBC cardholder” which seems to suggest that anyone who isn’t a “New OCBC cardholder” would get the bonus for existing cardholders.

John

If i cancel my OCBC TR Blue now and reapply Pink version next month or on March. Will i be considered as existing when apply (hold also OCBC 365) ?

Cee

Yes, since you’ve cancelled within the last 6 months

Ryan

LOL I just signed up for the pink one 2 weeks ago!

Ben

Ahhh the irony

John

the application page doesn’t work… when you click apply then select the card nothing happens!

Dan

Is Amazon Fresh eligible for 4mpd?

Hi, Silly me but for clarity, From Mar 1 supermarket spend is ineligible?

Thanks for the clarification

@Aaron Wong

I’m a bit confused by these points:

  • A new customer who applies for both the Blue and Pink OCBC Titanium Rewards Cards will receive 28,800 OCBC$
  • For avoidance of doubt, you will only qualify for the sign-up bonus once, even if you apply for both the Blue and Pink variants

Do I need to apply for both Blue AND Pink cards to get the new sign-up bonus (28,800 OCBC$ /11,520 miles)?

Or do I just need to apply for one (Blue OR Pink) to get the new sign-up bonus?

Thanks!

cockeye

Same here – was wondering if i need to apply for BOTH the blue and pink or just 1 of either is fine?

ast

Just one.
Poor ad placement in the middle of the paragraph. You’ve got to read the start of the sentence above the ad “For avoidance of doubt, you will only qualify for the sign-up bonus once, even if you apply for both the Blue and Pink variants”

Lim Boon Hua

I just called up OCBC and was told that there is an annual cumulative earn cap of OCBC$120,000 for titanium cards. This would mean that the max spend is way lower than SGD 26k.

Would anyone know, if spends on Bath & Body is included? Thanks

Desmond

Hi, I cancelled my OCBC TR card back in Nov 22 (2 months ago). Am I eligible for this promotion as an existing customer? Asking as the t&C state Applicants who had cancelled existing OCBC Credit Card facilities within the last six (6) months are not eligible to participate in the Promotion.

Thank you for sharing this! Your site is a godsend for miles beginners like me

Sorry if this has been answered already but could I confirm if purchases at Cold Storage/NTUC count towards eligible spend?

Lurker

Hi, will this card work with Amazecard?

Anne

yes i would like to know as well. the last write up on the duo seems to b awhile ago

Dan

is grabfood spending considered fulfilling the $100 spend criteria?

Jia min

Would I still earn 4MPD on luxury spending on Europe(eg: Chanel, LV, Dior)?

Tiak

So I applied for both cards. There is no option in the app or website for authorising overseas usage, so I tried using one overseas with Amaze anyway. The transaction failed and the app showed the card was locked. I contacted OCBC (worst banking hotline in Singapore, never answers before 30 mins, and sometimes it just times out after 30 mins) and was assured the card would be unlocked within half an hour. Didn’t happen after several days. 5 calls (x 30 mins) later, I was told the card cannot be unlocked but has to be cancelled and replaced! Then… Read more »
