SPC has aggressive promotion with POSB Everyday card, etc

but I stick with shell with the UOB visa : 5% discount at the pump plus 5% cash rebate to the card, plus the points earned per liter of petrol

worked it out - quite similar in terms of net price / net benefit, so no point switching

I use Citi Dividend Platinum.

At Esso, you have 10% station discount then you have 5% cash rebate in statement, then you can have points in Smiles card (roughly worth 3%).

So far the best combination. Looks KSP parents are not that KS in petrol. :lol: :lol:

Station discount 5%
Safra member + another 6% for total of 11%

StanChart Manhattan or Citibank Dividend - 5% rebate

I maintain a current account with Standchart Xtrasaver. If you keep daily balance above 6K, entitled to 7% off cash rebates on your purchases (any petrol station also can); plus the station discounts, works out pretty nice. IF you can keep daily balance above 20K, etc etc, the petrol discounts are higher.

Also, cash rebates of 1% for credit card expenses and 0.5% off your nets purchases (i use this to pay for my credit cards at axs machines).

I think DBS Esso card has the best deal in town. 18% off straight from the petrol bill plus Smile points.

Please share here if anyone has better deal than this. Thanks.

Got to exclude JB.
