OCBC Platinum Credit Card is a rewards card that is geared towards families as it offers special deals and perks on activities, shopping and recreation. The OCBC$ rewards programme allows cardholders to earn 1 OCBC$ rewards point for every dollar spent on this card. Another advantage is that these points do not expire for 5 years, and therefore will give cardholders enough time to accumulate points to redeem for rewards that matter. Additional benefits of the card include discounts and offers spanning a wide range of categories from travel to childcare.

Further discounts on dining, petrol and shopping are also very beneficial and sure to make a positive impact on the family budget.
Some of the biggest advantages of the OCBC$ rewards system include a 5-year validity period for your rewards points and no minimum spend required - all spending on the card being rewarded. With standard eligibility requirements and a decent amount of rewards on offer, I would say that this is a useful credit card for families that want to save on everyday purchases and exciting experiences.
