Compare Citi Cash Back+ Card vs. SCB Smart Credit Card vs. CIMB World Mastercard

Besides the Citi Cash Back+ Card, the Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) Smart Credit Card and CIMB World Mastercard are also among the other popular options you would have come across on MoneySmart's online credit card comparison wizard. Let's pit these 3 credit cards against one another to have a closer look at their requirements and benefits.

The key factors which we'll look at are interest rates, minimum annual income requirements and cash back benefits.

Among the 3 credit cards, the Citi Cash Back+ Card is the most convenient for spending on any category as you do not have to worry about checking on what type of purchases will entitle you to cash back. As long as you spend with your Citi Cash Back+ Card, there is at least a 1.6% cash back for you.

If you're looking for a higher percentage of cash back on certain types of purchases then the SCB Smart Credit Card may be a more apt option with its 6% cashback on everyday spend at selected merchants across fast food dining, coffee and toast, digital subscriptions and transportation.

When it comes to interest rates, the Citi Cash Back+ Card and SCB Smart Credit Card charge the highest interest rates of 27.90% and 29.90% respectively, and the Citi Cash Back+ Card even has an initial annual fee that is payable. However, the SCB Smart Credit Card offers one of the lowest interest rates among the 3 credit cards here, which can go as low as 23.90%.

Do note that all 3 credit cards require a minimum annual income requirement of $30,000 for Singaporeans and PRs. The Citi Cash Back+ Card is the most attractive option among the three cards for foreigners drawing annual salaries which are lower than $60,000.
