"Lol this was the only reason I was still holding this card. Time to cancel!" one netizen responded

SINGAPORE: A Reddit user recently shared some surprising news about the POSB Everyday Card. The card used to give a 3% cash rebate when you shopped at Watsons, which was quite a good deal.

But effective Oct 1, it’s going to be reduced to 0.3%. This means that if you spend $100, you’ll only get 30 cents back in rebates.

Reddit users had different opinions about the change, but most weren’t happy about it.

Some folks were not happy at all. One person commented, “So you will only get 30 cents for $100 spent? What a great deal.” They were disappointed with the reduced benefits.

Another person said they would cancel their card, saying, “Lol this was the only reason I was still holding this card. Time to cancel!” It seems like the cash rebates were a big reason they kept the card, and now that it’s less rewarding, they’re ready to part ways with it.

Some people even noted that times are tough when banks are cutting cash rebates. It’s a sign of changing times in the world of credit card rewards saying, “Times are hard when even banks are cutting cash rebates”

But not everyone was upset. One person tried to find a silver lining, joking, “Fret not, guys! You can still continue to posb daily$ at Watsons store!!! lolz.”
