Why you should choose the Standard Chartered Unlimited Card

Fuss-free card that offers unlimited cashback
Many cashback cards have TnCs around minimum monthly spends and cash back caps across spending categories, before you qualify for the cashback rate being advertised. The Standard Chartered Unlimited Card is not one of those cards. It really is a flexible, fuss-free card: almost all spend qualifies you for 1.5% cashback rate. Also, there’s no cashback cap per month and no minimum spend is required. It’s great when you don’t have want to have to keep track of hitting the monthly minimum spend each month, or you’re going to bust the monthly cashback cap.
15% off your Grab rides
Pay for your Grab rides with your Standard Chartered Unlimited Card and earn 15% cashback on your rides (both local and overseas). The caveat is that you’ll have to charge at least $900 in eligible spend for the month, with a cap of $30 cashback monthly. Double-dipping never hurt anyone, so if you use the Standard Chartered Unlimited Card to pay for your Grab ride, you’ll earn an extra 1.5% cashback each time. (Oh, and your spend with Grab counts to the $900 spend monthly as well)
Great card for daily commutes on MRT and buses
The SC Unlimited Cashback Credit Card is among four credit cards that can double up as your EZ-Link Card. That means you can use the same card to pay for your public transport and at merchants where EZ-Link payment is accepted. It comes with the convenient EZ-Reload function, which automatically tops up your card with S$50 when balance runs low. Amounts charged under EZ-Reload are also eligible for 1.5% cash back.
2-year fee waiver
Unlike other similar cashback cards which come with one-year fee waivers, the Standard Chartered Unlimited Credit Card offers an automatic two-year fee waiver.
