Choosing a credit card is not as easy as it seems.
Over the years, Singaporeans have started to open up for the benefits credit cards have to offer. With too many choices offered by banks, you need to take the time and shop around.
Standard Chartered Credit Card also has a couple of credit cards. However, before you sign up, you need to know if this card fits your needs more than your wants.
