Credit Cards Accepted

The Singapore gahmen may allow the poor to qualify for a credit card with a lower limit. This worries the “other” finance industry.

Special shoutouts to Yina and Kiat.

    Do not take up the offer when its available. I used to harrassed by credit card sales person along orchard road, my answer to them would be, am not eligible and they walk away. Always use cash if possible.

    to me its just more convenience. u know how some restaurants and shops only accept credit cards? like dat lor. its the penultimate step to a paper- and coin-less economy!

    Interestingly, a Saturday newspaper article estimated that lowering the annual income requirement to S$20,000 p.a. could give banks access to another 450,000 consumers and potentially expand total unsecured loans by S$2 billion.

    For you numerologists out there - a little calculation tells me that’s S$444.44 (recurring) per consumer. Another interesting factoid - S$444.44 is 88.88% (recurring) of S$500.
