Attached Image If there is one thing all Singaporeans love, it is a good discount. When it comes to picking a credit card, all of us will certainly look at what perks and benefits the particular card offers, whether it may be discounts on food, shopping, movies, etc. For car owners, petrol rebates will certainly be high on their priority lists. Here, we suss out the four best credit cards for petrol rebates.

Offering up to 22.72 percent discount on petrol at the two most populous stations in Singapore (Esso and Shell), this is the card that will cover many bases for most drivers. The card offers up to 18 percent instant discount on petrol (five percent site discount + five percent Smiles or Escape card discount + four percent Citi Card discount with Esso or five to six percent at Shell depending on petrol grade), as well as eight percent Citi cash back on your nett purchase, which amounts to 6.88 percent discount (eight percent of 86 percent). At all other petrol stations, you also receive the eight percent cash back.

Additionally, you get eight percent cash back at all grocery and dining worldwide. Yes, worldwide. All other retail spending is awarded with 0.25 percent cash back. You could make the case that this is the granddaddy of credit cards for motorists.
