All-round Protection

Subject to the terms and conditions in the applicable debit card agreement, your maximum liability shall be capped at S$100 for unauthorized transactions not due to your fault or negligence.

+Effective 1 October 2013, minimum spending of S$500 per quarter is required to be entitled to the 0.3% cashback. 0.3% cashback is calculated based on Singapore dollar denominated transaction amount on transaction date. Cashback earned for the current quarter's transactions (e.g. January to March) will be credited in the following month (e.g. April) to the primary account linked to your DBS Visa Debit Card and reflected in your monthly Debit Card/bank account statement (e.g. May). Cashback is not valid for PIN-based transactions (e.g. NETS, ATM, AXS, etc), foreign currency transactions and bill payments. If the Card and/or Primary Account are terminated at anytime, for any reason, whether by Cardmember or DBS, any cashback earned will not be credited to the Cardmember's account.

Important Notes

  1. This Debit Card can be used at ATMs and for PIN-based transactions at selected merchants in Singapore and at Maestro or Cirrus enabled merchants overseas. It also allows you to sign for local and overseas purchases and perform card-not-present transactions (such as online, mail and phone orders), which shall be paid for by directly deducting the transaction amount(s) from your bank account.
  2. Your MasterCard/Visa Debit Limit for signature-based or card-not-present transactions is set at S$2,000. A Debit Card carries risks of unauthorized signature-based, MasterCard® PayPass™/ Visa payWave or card-not-present transactions. You may choose to increase/decrease this limit upon activation.
  3. If you have chosen to convert your card transaction into Singapore dollars via dynamic currency conversion (a service offered at selected overseas ATMs, merchants or websites), you acknowledge that the process of conversion and the exchange rates applied will be determined by the relevant ATM operator, merchant or dynamic currency conversion service provider, as the case may be.

    All card transactions which are converted via dynamic currency conversion will be subject to an administrative fee of 0.8% by Visa or MasterCard respectively on the converted Singapore dollar amount, or such other rate as determined by us and notified to you.
