DBS is running a very lucrative offer on the DBS Takashimaya AMEX Card (not VISA!), and unlike most promotions we see, existing DBS/POSB cardholders are eligible too. 

From 1 October to 31 October 2021, new DBS Takashimaya AMEX cardholders who spend a minimum of S$200 at Takashimaya Department Store within the first month of card approval will receive S$200 cashback. It’s that simple!

The best thing about this is that there is no new-to-bank requirement- you’re eligible for this promotion even if you already have a DBS/POSB credit card. The only exclusion is for individuals who have cancelled any DBS Takashimaya Card (AMEX or Visa) during the past 12 months. 

The qualifying spend period starts from the date of approval. For example, if your card is approved on 6 October 2021, your qualifying spend period will run from 6 October to 5 November 2021. 

Qualifying spend excludes the following:

  •  Purchase of Takashimaya Gift Vouchers
  • Transactions at Cold Storage, Food Village and selected food merchants at Food Hall, B2
  • Transactions on instalment payment plan and My Preferred Payment Plans

Other than that, everything else at Takashimaya is fair play. The S$200 cashback will be credited to your card account within 90 days from the card opening month.This means you will have to pay your first bill, it’s not an immediate offset! To break things down even further, you will have to first spend >=$200 to trigger the $200 cashback, before spending another $200 to utilised the triggered $200 cashback.

Terms & Conditions

The full T&Cs can be found here. As always, we advise saving this document in case of any discrepancy.


Not a lot more to say- this is an easy S$200 that everyone can and should seize (unless you already have a DBS Takashimaya Card). Some good incentive for early Christmas shopping!
