POSB bank may have been acquired by DBS in 1995 but still carry on their operations. This bank was originally set up as the Post Office Savings bank and was designed to provide low cost banking services to the public. Its main attraction was the basic savings account and a waiver of banking fees and charges to children, full time students and National Servicemen. Post-acquisition, POSB has still maintained the principle of providing its customers what they really need. Devoid of fancy bells and whistles, the bank now offers financial products and solutions that cut straight to the point and put practicality above all else.
This cannot be any more evident in the credit card it provides. While most other banks churn out a long list of credit cards with so many monikers that can make anyone’s head spin, POSB has decided to go the smarter route and combine all the features and benefits of different credit cards into one. Whether the cardholder constantly splurges on health and beauty care products or is always eating out with family and friends, the card serves almost every purpose. The card has been designed keeping in mind the various expenses a cardholder may face on any given day.
The Everyday card brings the much needed element of practicality into the credit card. With rebates offered for utility bill payments and savings provided on petrol, the benefits of the card are hard to debate. Let’s not forget the amount of space one would be saving in their wallet when they can replace 3 of their other credit cards for just one.
