these saving accounts requires u to spend on their own credit cards or sign up for their insurance products to earn the high interest rates. Does it actually make sense to try to earn 3% interest while u try to commit to the requirements set by the banks like purchasing their products or using their credit cards? It would be great if you can cover an article with some realistic scenarios examples for noobs like me

Thank you for your suggestion. We will look into covering the bank accounts with realistic scenarios. In the meantime, our recommendation is that it might make sense to use these bank accounts if you find their credit cards useful (for cashback, miles, etc) and don't find it much of a hassle to credit your salary or pay bills with these bank accounts. However, their investment or insurance products might not be the best around and one will do well to consider all options in the market as well as his/her risk-taking profile before commiting to them.

Easy way to get high interest on a savings account. I receive about $130 interest a month on $50k deposit by doing the 3 requirements every month. Credit must be given to OCBC for coming up with this innovative savings acoount. Hopefully this bonus interest promotion will stay for good.
