And just like that, I've easily saved about $200 and that's how I'll stretch my dollar with the OCBC Yes! Card. :d

In conjunction with the OCBC Yes! Card Challenge, I decided to compose a 'poem' just for fun:

OCBC Yes! Card is the one card you need,
For students like me who watch my spending.
Into my wallet and lifestyle that perfectly fits,
The possibilities of saving is never-ending.'

They round your purchase to the nearest dollar,
Doubling my spare change plus rebates going to my account,
It is such a great idea I wanna holla!
It is almost like a new friend found!

Months ago I lost my Ez-link card,
No transport card so I almost went nuts!
But fear not because I can now use another card, Yes!
That also comes with Ez-reload
That tops up my card automatically when the amount runs low.

Wave your card to make payment,
Like maybe you went shopping at Giant.
With payWave there's no need for PIN number, Yes!
Neither do you need to sign,
Just tap your card on the logo with curved lines.

So convenient because it's all-in-one,
Thus bring it overseas if you want.

One of my favourite service will have to be banking from the comfort of my home. For 24 hours, 7 days a week I can use OCBC Internet Banking to conduct my transaction (if you know how much I shop online).

I'm thrilled. In fact, I've already used it more than once while out dining within a week. What, it's too convenient to not use it. Besides, charging the bill via Visa will allow me to enjoy a fee waiver on my following card anniversary.
