The brand new DBS Live Fresh Card is my current go to card for all online purchases and Visa payWave transactions on offline spending as well (e.g. travel, entertainment, shopping and dining). I like it that there is no complicated spend requirements or spending in different categories to take note of.
In fact, the refreshed DBS Live Fresh Card rewards existing card members with 5% cash back on online shopping and Visa payWave purchases, as well as 0.3% for all other spending. New card applicants like myself whose accounts are opened from 8 January to 31 March 2018, are eligible to enjoy an additional 5% cash back for the first six months, giving them up to 10% cash back. Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay are considered as Visa payWave transactions.
Card members need only spend a minimum of S$600 in a calendar month to receive up to S$60 cashback.
Refreshing Glow-in-the-Dark Card Design
This is the first credit card exclusively designed in collaboration with homegrown sneaker artist and internationally renowned street wear designer Mark Ong a.k.a. Mr Sabotage from SBTG, whose sneakers have graced the feet of international celebrities like Kobe Bryant and Linkin Park.
The card features a creative, glow-in-the-dark camouflage design that is inspired by the spirit of freedom, choice and independence. Boasting a contrasting pink-and-turquoise design that speaks of bold originality, it represents the same freedom that DBS is giving its digitally savvy customers to allow them to pursue their lifestyle choices to the fullest.
“Camouflage is typically used to blend in, but I’ve adopted the camouflage design – with a unique glow-in-the-dark imprint – as a way for DBS Live Fresh card members to “blend out” and buck the trend. I hope that with this newly designed card, people will take a cue from my design inspiration to live fresh and play by their own rules,” says Mark Ong.
Exclusive DBS Live Fresh X Mr Sabotage merchandise
From 8 January to 31 March 2018, DBS is having an exclusive giveaway of DBS Live Fresh X Mr Sabotage merchandise with 100 pairs of hand-painted AIR FORCE 1 sneakers and 1,000 G-Shock watches featuring the iconic camouflage print to be up for grabs.
Both existing and new card members of the refreshed DBS Live Fresh Card will be eligible to win a limited-edition G-Shock watch with every S$50 spent. The top 100 spenders during the campaign period will stand to win a pair of custom-painted AIR FORCE 1 sneakers.
The DBS Live Fresh Card appeals to my current lifestyle as I often purchase items online such as household products, groceries, food deliveries, clothes, makeup, movie tickets and travel bookings. The card is also great for offline Visa payWave purchases as it is not only limited to dining but entertainment, shopping and travel as well. Indeed, the best way to live life, is to own it and play by your own rules.
