This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Tax paid with Citibank Dividend Card.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

It is a once a year affair. Got to pay Road Tax for my car:

I paid at an AXS machine this evening and was pleasantly surprised to find that I had a choice of paying with a DBS or a Citibank credit card too.

So, I paid with my Citibank Dividend Card and I guess tonight's dinner at the food court was free! That makes me happy!

I used to NETS it using my POSB ATM card. Things have changed for the better.

sorry to pops your hope but I don't think that is enough to pay your dinner :P 342 x 0.5% = 1.71.. hahaha...
anyway, just joking :P

Hi AK71,

I'm paying stuff with a cashback card too. I'm using a debit card from standard chartered which offers 1% cash rebate on any mastercard transaction.

I'm using it to pay my uni school fees :P
They used to offer 2% cashback but now drop to 1% :(

Your dinner cost only $1.71??

Hi pero,

I paid $684. LOL. ;)

Hi SG Young Investment,

I heard how their Manhattan Card was really generous with rebates before too. I think they felt the pinch and must cut back. ;p

Hi Serendib,

I paid $684. So, I got back $3.42. Enough for noodles lah. :)

However, tomorrow, my tea breaks and lunch will cost a grand total of $1.00. Should I blog about it? LOL! ;p

You have a DBS card? You can pay your income tax and property tax with DBS card and get rebates or points :)

Hi AK71,

Ya man. They cut back on their manhatten card too. But still generous at 2% cashback now.

Last time their xtrasaver debit card got cashback for nets transactions also. 0.5%. They totally removed it since April this year.

Hi Cen,

And so I was told. I only have the DBS AMEX card. I don't have a VISA or MasterCard. :(

Hi SG Young Investment,

They couldn't keep it up forever. ;)

Citibank Dividend Card is good for me because I drive. 5% rebate on petrol. 2% rebate at restaurants and pharmacies (where most of my bigger expenses are incurred). I hardly spend money anywhere else.

Oh, for groceries, it gives 2% rebate but I use the SMRT Pay Wave Visa to get 5%. ;p

Hi AK71,

Good rebates you have there. :)

Hi SG Young Investments,

It is hard to make money and getting harder. We will have to make our money work hard for us and work harder. ;p
