Earlier this month, I received a brochure with decal on OCBC Plus Visa Card outlining the relaunched card benefits.  I hold the OCBC-NTUC Plus Visa Card (for NTUC members) which have the same benefits as the OCBC Plus Visa Card (for non-NTUC members).

So what are the card's relaunched benefits?

Category Description
Groceries Save 10% on FairPrice Housebrand + Earn 1.3% LinkPoints rewards at Fairprice
Petrol Save 14% at Esso + 2.9% rewards
Healthcare Enjoy Exclusive Benefits at Healthway Medical Clinics
Transport Earn 2% LinkPoints rewards on EZ-Reload (Bus/Train) & Taxi Charges
Recurring Bills Earn 1.3% LinkPoints rewards on SingTel, M1, StarHub, SPH & Town Council bills
Utilities Earn 1.3% LinkPoints rewards on electricity, water & gas bills
Lifestyle Save up to 20% at participating OCBC merchants
All Spend Earn 0.3% LinkPoints rewards on all Visa spend

And the promotion for new sign-ups?
  • S$10 cash rebate credit for each recurring bill payment or EZ-Reload sign up capped at S$30.
  • Get S$10 Fairprice welcome voucher when you receive your OCBC Plus! Visa Credit Card subject to terms and conditions.
  • Plus! BigDeal Members will get S$10 BigDeal credits credited to their BigDeal account upon approval of their OCBC Plus! Visa Card application. (I believe the S$10 BigDeal credit and S$10 Fairprice voucher are mutually exclusive.)

I see the relaunched OCBC Plus Visa Card upping its competiveness against other bank's cash rebate credit cards.  For example, i have been enjoying 1% rebate for recurring bill payments by charging to my POSB Everyday Card.  However, it may be worth considering to switch to my OCBC-NTUC Plus Visa Card to enjoy the incremental 0.3% LinkPoints reward.
