Chitchat Perks of my new DBS account

I finally settled the details of my new DBS account, a Treasures account. There was confusion about why I did not get internet banking access. Seems that you now have to DIY by logging into the DBS site.

This was something new the "personal banker" assigned to me did not know anything about it:rolleyes: It is obvious that DBS is not anything like. Citibank :smile:

I went online to see some of the perks & there are quite a number for Travellers e.g. one gets access to the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge facilities at Changi.

Anyone know if the perk extends to other KrisFlyer Lounges other than the one in Changi:confused:

Haha....trying to hao lian your treasures account?

$350k to open an account nia.
When Johnny mentioned citi, he could be refering to CITIGOLD PRIVATE CLIENT
1.5 million to join

So the equivalent in DBS is not just DBS treasures, but DBS treasures private client (not just DBS treasures)
AUM is also $1.5 million

I re-read the small print. You can use the Krisflyer lounge only if you have an SIA or SilkAir ticket.
This is why I need to use a bigger monitor especially when dealing with GLCs, there is always the small print:(

I googled for a review of SIAs Krisflyer lounge & many were underwhelmed by it:biggrin: The biggest complaint many had was that there were no showering facilities & if you wanted to go to the toilet, you had to use the ones outside because there are none in the lounge.

Maybe people like Froggy can comment on how it compares on the other aspects such as the food:confused:

I am actually cash poor. I prefer to invest my funds in equities that provide dividends.

The Citibank account I have requires a $30k minimum. The Treasures account requires $300k.
I keep most of the $ in USD because you get a better interest rate.

If you put in more $ into the Treasures account you are given a cash reward. However be aware that it also comes with penalties if you decide to close the account within a certain period you have to give back the cash reward.

My impression of DBS is not so good. Their process is not very good & I would recommend Citibank over DBS.

another how lian thread.
What is wrong with discussions on money?
I have made my money honestly unlike some people. When I go to a Treasures lounge I see other older silver haired Sporeans who also have some $$$.

If you go to the banks in the heartlands of Spore it is common to see many older Sporeans with a few hundred thousand putting their money in term deposits. At least with a Treasures account you can get free drinks & snacks :smile:

You may think that discussions about $ is being "how Lian" but in Spore the reality is that you need $$$ to survive. The more the better. I have always advocated that people invest regularly at a young age. I practice what I preach & that is why today I don't have to worry about money even though I no longer work.

I may not have a regular job but I still need a good and secure handphone like the iPhone & iMac to monitor & look after my investments & bank accounts.

You have to wonder about those recommending android phones? You never see them discussing the poor security of android phones.

Kris Flyer Gold Lounge is many notches below SQ Biz Class & First Class Silver Kris Flyer Lounge.

Like you said in Kris Flyer Gold Lounge there is no shower facility and F & B wise there is no comparison.






First Class Silver Kris Lounge.






Business Class Silver Kris Lounge.

I recommend Citibank which I've used for over 20 years. The DBS account was only opened recently
and So far I am not impressed by what I've seen.

They have too many newbies on staff & when I ask questions, the questions are directed to numerous people who don't seem to know the answer & they have to escalate further.

It took nearly 2 months for me to get Internet. Access to my account :eek:
They might be ok if you have a small sum & just want to pay monthly bills but for more demanding requirements I'd avoid.

This is the same bank that threw out people's possession stored in DBS safety deposited box. I've also heard from some Indonesians that their funds went missing. So you have to actively monitor your funds.

Wait till you know the crazy resignations in their internal audit team in the past 36 months.
Borrow money from them, not invest with them.
