What are the advantages of the amaze card?

#1 – Zero foreign currency transaction fees

The top priority for savvy Singaporeans, aka you who is reading the post, is probably cost.

The amaze card boasts their zero foreign currency transaction fees AND their conversion rate. 

I have personally tried converting some monies and I must say that their rates were better than the banks’ rates. 

Of course, they are not the exact rates as Google – but hey, I don’t think any cards offer it out there, so the Amaze card is still the better choice. 

You can make transactions from two sources within the amaze card – the Amaze Wallet or the direct debit/credit card function. 

Here’s a pro tip, use the Amaze Wallet to make transactions if you want the best conversion rates!

#2 - Convenience

We are more-or-less a cashless world these days, and depending on the country you are visiting, you can tour around a country without using physical notes.

Gone are the days where we need to visit multiple cash changers and figure out the best rates (and also the need to do extensive mental sums)! 

With the amaze card, all you need to do is to either top your wallet beforehand or simply link your amaze card with your credit card.

Tap your card on the terminal and you are good to go.

You do not have to change the currencies beforehand as it will be done for your automatically. 

Big Plus - you no longer have to carry cash around and fear getting robbed *cues – carrying your bag in front of you*

#3 – Bonus rewards

There are other perks when using the Amaze card.

Perks include earning InstaPoints (which can be converted into cashback or discounts) on every 1SGD spent in foreign currency, and also your credit card points where applicable. 

Also, you will be eligible for the amaze card promos, including up to 10% cash back on bookings on booking.com and 6% off all hotel reservations on Agoda!

What else do you need to know about the amaze card?

#1 - The amaze card works better with Mastercards for now

When you use a Mastercard with your amaze card, you would be able to stack up on your rewards when traveling. 

However, if you only have a Visa card, do note that a 1.5% fee will be applied when you top up your wallet using Visa cards.

It was the only deterrence for me back then, but with the ongoing credit card promotions these days, this became less of a problem for me.

How do I sign up for an amaze card?

If you need another reason to try out this card, you can always download the app and sign up.

The application process is fuss free and easy.

To sweeten the deal, they are offering a S$10 voucher for the first 20 users who have successfully signed up using the promo link. Instarem will decide on the eligible users and award the vouchers directly to the winners of the promo. 

The voucher will be valid till 31st December 2023, so you still can make full use of it for your upcoming year end trip.

This is in addition to the 25 InstaPoints you will earn when you sign up as a welcome reward. Score an additional 100 InstaPoints when you complete your e-verification in the first 36 hours after you sign up.

Take note that you will only be eligible for the KK Day voucher promotion if you sign up via this link.
