Which is the Best Credit Card in Singapore

Types of Credit Card

Credit Cards in Singapore are issued by financial institutions and are usually MasterCard, Visa, American Express, JCB, UnionPay or Diners Club Cards. MasterCards and Visa Cards are the most commonly accepted credit cards and will offer the greatest ease in payment at most merchants. American Express Cards have excellent tie-ups with many luxury brands and can potentially offer many discounts and rewards at these merchants. JCB, UnionPay and Diner Club Cards are the least widely accepted but they usually offer discounts and rewards at specialty merchants.

Eligibility and Annual Fees

Most credit cards in Singapore require a minimum of $30,000 income per annum to be eligible. American Express Credit Cards, Visa Signature and Visa Infinite Credit Cards belong to the higher end and could require annual income of as high as $150,000 per annum. Naturally, they also come with greater benefits for the consumer. These higher end credit cards have high annual fees that cannot be waived easily while most other credit cards come with waived annual fees. Sometimes, annual fees waiver can also be obtained through requests.

Spending Patterns

The best credit card for you depends on your spending pattern. It is advisable to gather your spending on one credit card to yield the most benefits and have other credit cards on backup to provide benefits for specific purchases. The questions below will help you pick the best credit card for you.
