Owning a car in Singapore is relatively expensive. Though nothing is better than the affordable pump stations across the causeway, having a credit card that gives you fuel savings can help reduce your monthly petrol spendings. Furthermore, you could enjoy additional perks as you spend with the ‘right’ card that best suits your lifestyle too.
Read on to find the right card as we bring you a list of the best credit cards for petrol discounts at various stations!
Caltex – OCBC 365 Credit Card
The OCBC 365 credit card has plenty of rewards for cardholders when it comes to everyday spendings, with 6% cashback for dining and 3% cashback for groceries and utilities. At Caltex, OCBC 365 cardholders get to enjoy up to 22.1% fuel savings, including an 18% instant discount for all fuel.
From 26 June to 26 July 2020, for every valid payment transaction done using the CaltexGo payment application, Caltex will be pumping in $3 into the Caltex Fuel Your School program in partnership with Science Centre Singapore.

If you already own a credit card that is not in our compiled, non-exhaustive list for great savings, do not rush to apply for a new one as petrol companies typically have loyalty reward programmes which still garner you savings.
For drivers who are looking to apply for a new card suited to your needs, be sure to check out other cards provided and the cashback cap along with your monthly expenditure to determine which card may be best for you, as you enjoy fuel discounts.
