$200 Cash: Maximising the CIMB Promo for May

For the month of May, CIMB is offering S$200 cash for sign-ups made with the below links, slightly more than the S$188 cashback offered on their website. The S$200 is given via PayNow which is more convenient than cashback credited to the card.

You may also opt for the earphones – which also come with S$40 cash – if you wish.

The promo is also more simplified now, with a minimum spend of S$988 in 60 days rather than the previous requirement of S$500 per month for two months.

Maximising the promo

The cards also give cashback on top of the sign-up gift:

CIMB Visa Signature
To maximise the promo in a fuss-free manner, I would recommend getting the CIMB Visa Signature card, and you can easily meet the minimum spend by purchasing supermarket vouchers. That also means you also get S$20 cashback from the card itself which gives 10% cashback on grocery spend (capped at S$20). You are also free to make spending in other eligible categories of online shopping, pets, beauty & wellness etc.

It’s actually a useful card for certain areas of spend, and I intend to review this in the near future.

Thanks to QQ from the chat, it seems very possible to up your cashback amount because you may be able to buy Dairy Farm vouchers from Guardian which are usable at Cold Storage, Giant etc. This should count under the beauty & wellness category which has its own S$20 cashback cap. It’s also possible to buy vouchers from online storefronts like Lazada, and that should earn 10% cashback from the online shopping category too:

PurchaseCategoryCashback
$200 vouchers at GuardianBeauty & Wellness$20 (10%)
$200 vouchers at supermarketGroceries$20 (10%)
$200 vouchers from onlineOnline Shopping$20 (10%)
$200 spend elsewhere0.2% to 10% depending on category

CIMB World Mastercard
You also get the CIMB World Mastercard which gives 2% cashback on the following categories if you hit S$1,000 of spend within the same statement month:

  • Wine & Dine and Online Food Delivery
  • Movies and Digital Entertainment
  • Taxi and Automobile
  • Luxury Goods

Depending on your spend, you might find that it’s easier to get additional S$20 cashback from this card rather than CIMB Visa Signature. CIMB World Mastercard also gives 1% cashback on all other spend with minimum of S$500 spending within the same statement month.
