Citibank SMRT VISA: Good deal for Chinese New Year!

Thursday, January 29, 2015

I just shared a good deal on FB. What is it?

Do you have this credit card?

If you do, make your way to Kallang Wave Mall's NTUC Fairprice.

Use your Citibank SMRT card to buy $200 worth of NTUC Fairprice vouchers and you will get a $10 Kallang Wave Mall voucher free.

On top of this, you will get a 7% rebate from Citibank for the $200 purchase.

The NTUC Fairprice vouchers can be used at all NTUC Fairprice outlets, not just the one in Kallang Wave Mall.

Pay $186 and get $210! That is a 12.9% return!

Good deal! Don't say AK bo jio hor.

Is $600 the minimum monthly spending to get 7% rebates according to Citibank website)?

Hi Chula,

I don't think so, at least not for spending at NTUC Fairprice in Kallang Wave Mall.

If the spending is less than $600, I get 7% rebate. If the spending is $600 or more in a month, I get 7.3% rebate. That has been my experience.

However, you might want to check with Citibank to be sure. :)

Hi yeh,

It is a good deal, isn't it? It takes me about 10 minutes to drive there (including waiting at red lights) but I think it is worth the drive.

You might want to go on a weekend and treat it as an outing with your husband. The new Sports Hub and the surroundings are beautiful. :)
