What Are Credit Card Promotions?

We all have that one relative or friend who swears by credit card sign-up promotions. Every time you see them, they seem to have a new piece of Samsonite luggage for their collection or a wad of Takashimaya vouchers to blow.

Unlike with rewards or miles credit cards, such introductory promotions typically do not require you to accumulate and redeem points. Instead, banks offer attractive sign-up gifts like branded luggage to entice new customers. The credit card itself can be any sort of card.

Types of Credit Card Promotions

Here are 3 common types of promotions offered by credit cards in Singapore:

Free Gifts

Promotional freebies that await when you sign up for a credit card. Apart from that perennial favourite – free luggage – there are also variations such as free mobile data and free petrol. Some credit cards also offer the chance to win bigger-ticket prizes such as package holidays or limited edition branded goods.

Welcome Miles/points

Miles credit cards or rewards credit cards will sometimes sweeten the deal for newcomers with a big bunch of points in the first few months of card usage. These often come with substantial minimum spends.

Cashback Promotions

Some cashback credit cards offer a big cash rebate, e.g. $100 cashback, upon successful application or the first spend on that card. Check if there is a minimum spend or any other catch before you jump at the chance to get free money.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of credit card promotion is best?

The ideal credit card promotion is one that merely sweetens the deal on a credit card that is already a good fit for your lifestyle and spending habits – the icing on the cake. Also, make sure you actually need the freebie on offer. If your storeroom is already bursting with 27 other American Tourister bags, maybe skip the free luggage promo this time.

How do I stay on top of new credit card promotions?

Is there a drawback to signing up for too many credit cards?

It can be tempting to sign up for many credit cards just for the introductory freebies, but having too many cards can have unintended consequences. For one thing, if you cannot keep track of your credit cards, you are more susceptible to credit card fraud. Applying for too many credit cards or having unused credit cards lying around also does not help your credit score should you wish to take out a loan in the future.
