The previous version was written more than 2 years ago and an update is due since there have been some changes to the ez-reload cards. Just a note, Nets Flashpay and Ez-link cards are covered here since both may be used for public transport and both may be top-up using credit cards

ezlink2015aFirst and foremost, ANZ and HSBC have removed their ez-reload perks, and OCBC Frank card has reduced their rebate from 6% to 3% with some other T&Cs.

As such, the credit-cards that double up as Ezlink/Nets flashpay cards do not offer great perks anymore. In terms of absolute percentages, UOB One is probably the best if you hit the minimum requirements, and there’s no limit to the number of topups you can have in a month. Otherwise, for simplicity sake, then POSB Everyday is the one to put in your wallet.

    Shouldn’t HSBC’s Revolution Credit Card also be considered as a good option? It’s 5x Rewards on Online transactions (which EZ-Reload is considered) every day and 10x Rewards on Wednesdays until 31 December 2015. The rebate ratio can be higher than 4% if top-up is made on a Wednesday (also depending on the type of gift vouchers being redeemed). Just a thought…

      Hi TB,
      Thanks for bringing this up! I didn’t know that they offer up to 10X rewards on Wednesday, and yeah indeed it’s an option for those who prefer to exchange for items/vouchers with their reward points!

    Your review is so wrong.. You should have went thru their T&C’s first before having a judgement. Anyway here’s UOB’s T&C.
