    If you've got an UOB account, and you're a student, get a Campus Card. I use it online, I use it in HK, Tw, China. All works fine. No charge, and the card looks good. Like the black cards of a few banks.
    My POSB one gave me problems overseas too, so I cancelled it when they wanted me to start paying subscription fees. Haven't tried the new Go! card though.

    heard that lady's card if very good, the white rose very chio leh...



    Campus card is good, got free cheque, higher interest rates. DBS-NUS card have nothing much at all, i canceled mine long ago when they start charging me.

    if i need to use card, usually i'll use uob card as i have points, can exchange for vouchers or items

    recently there's not much freebies given at the road shows

    Yes it works.....used a POSBank Master Debit in Aussie b4. Shldn't have any problems. Charge to the card and pay onli the bank's exchange rate. Don't withdraw money, u get charged extra for withdrawing.

    Btw, not many places in Aussie take Amex. No point. 2 yrs there i used my Amex less than 5 times onli.

    they will charge u a fee when u withdraw from overseas
    UOB/POSB charges a $5 fee for any withdrawal.
    OCBC is 5%, max $20.

    I went with UOB and withdraw the max amount everytime I need $.
    I think if U sign, no extra charge.

    Warau I am so confused haha....so I just go to POSB and say I want a debit card with Plus and cirrus then can liao? Dont think I will withdraw too much money....more like use it to pay for accom and car rental in Australia thats all. So does POSB charge you subscription fees? If UOB dont have then I can actually go for it as I think I still eligible for campus card. OCBC also can.

    Are there restrictions to debit cards? Cos I hear some have daily withdrawal limits and some cant be used overseas?
    UOB debit card is free for life, still can get UOB mini debit as well.

    If you've applied for the Capitaland Platinum, why do you still need a debit card?

    love my posb card..

    my friends give me an odd look because its bright orange... but i dont care about the fact its not "platinum" coloured....

    never had any problems paying... it doubles up as a nets/ atm card... and best of all, i dont get any bills or heart attacks at the end of the month.

    You might really wanna get your campus card quick before you become non eligible. It's free for life, but you can only apply for it when you're a student.
    My experience with using the UOB card overseas is that I'm not charged any extra $$, and it's direct conversion of currency without any surcharges. Withdrawal from overseas ATM cost me SGD$5 i think, regardless of amt.. End up I find things cheaper if i charged to my UOB debit card than if i changed $$ and paid for them with hard cash..
    Yesh POSB still charge subscription fees. Except for the Go! card I heard.

    Its unlikely that you can find any card with BOTH PLUS and CIRRUS - all the cards I have either have one or the other.
