#1 Enticing cash rebates

The biggest strength of this card is its versatility. From dining, petrol and food delivery to groceries and online shopping, the POSB Everyday Card has you covered. Apart from earning cash rebates on your recurring telco and utility bills, you even get to earn cash rebates when you shop at Watsons and Pet Lovers Centre.

While there’s a S$800 minimum spend per calendar month required in order to earn cash rebates on your online food delivery, dining, online shopping, and telco transactions, take heart that you can snag cash rebates at Sheng Siong and Watsons even if you don’t meet the S$800 minimum spend requirement. The latter is one of the most unique features of this cashback credit card.  

#2 Flexible Daily$ redemption

You can offset any of your purchases with Daily$ at your convenience via DBS PayLah!. Want to offset your credit card bills, redeem Comfort/Citycab taxi vouchers or Krisflyer miles (especially handy with the new vaccinated travel lanes)? Simply redeem your Daily$ via POSB iBanking. 

#3 Exclusive merchant deals

The POSB Everyday Card lets you enjoy exclusive merchant deals all year round. The array of offers are broadly categorised into three major sections: shopping, utilities and attractions. 

For instance, apart from additional discounts when shopping at iHerb, POSB Everyday card members can enjoy 20% off Sentosa Fun Pass Token Tickets and up to 50% off admission tickets  for Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari and River Safari.
