Everyone should hold a DBS Woman's World MasterCard - that's right, even guys! DBS has revealed new terms and conditions for the ever-popular credit card and before we get too worried about losing 10X points on online purchases (even in very grey areas), let's have a look at the new T&Cs document.
Thankfully, the DBS Woman's World MasterCard WILL STILL give you 10X DBS Points for every S$5 online retail spend (up to S$2,000 each month). The only exception is that DBS has included a list of exclusion now:
- Payments made via telephone or mail order
- Payments to government institutions
- Payments to financial institutions (including banks and brokerages)
- Payments to insurance companies
- Utility bill payments
- Payment of funds to prepaid accounts and merchants who are categorized as “payment service providers”
- Payments to schools, hospitals, professional service providers and payment for parking lots
- Payments made via AXS and SAM online/ibanking bill payment transactions, EZ-Reload (Auto Top-Up) transactions and eNets transactions
- Any other transactions determined by DBS from time to time
While it used to be common knowledge that the DBS Woman's World MasterCard can be used to top up prepaid cards like the Imagine Card or FEVO card, this benefit has now been cancelled with the amendment of T&Cs.

I have always been an advocate for Chope since it allows you to not only make reservations on-the-go but also rack up plenty of Chope-Dollars which you can then use for dining vouchers or even KrisFlyer miles. There are no fees involved in using Chope so there is really zero reason for you not to - especially the last thing you want to experience is being turned away at a restaurant that you have already travelled down for.
