Important Information

Change in Minimum Payment Due

Change in Minimum Payment Due

With effect from 29 November 2014, the minimum monthly repayment amount ("Minimum Payment Due" or "MPD") applicable to all your Standard Chartered Bank (Singapore) Limited Credit Card accounts1 (including funds transfers) will be revised to:

  1. $50; or
  2. 1% of your principal2 plus interest, fees and charges3,

whichever is higher, plus any amount in the account balance exceeding your credit limit ("overlimit amount"), and any past due amount.

With this revision, if you pay the MPD on a monthly basis, part of each payment made will go towards paying down your principal, enabling you to better manage the repayment and settle your outstanding balance faster.

Please note that our prevailing Credit Card Terms are amended accordingly and effective from 29 November 2014.

1 Applicable to all credit card accounts except CashOne, ezyCash, Credit Card Instalment Loan and Platinum Access with the Automatic Payment Scheme.

2 Principal includes your monthly purchases and any annual membership fee when it is due.

3 Please refer to the Credit Card Tariff Sheet, a copy of which is found in the Credit Card Terms.

Scenarios to help you understand MPD better

The scenarios below are for illustration purposes only and may differ depending on the individual's account.

New balance refers to the total amount due that month, including the principal, interest, fees and other charges.

Scenario 1: Full payment made every month

If you have a new balance of $10,000, with no previous outstanding balance or fees ($10,000 principal)

Your Minimum Payment Due:

Prior to 29 November 2014: After to 29 November 2014:
3% x new balance:
3% x $10,000 = $300
1% x principal:
1% x $10,000 = $100
In this scenario, your revised MPD is lower.
Scenario 2: Partial payment made every month

If your new balance of $10,200 comprises: $10,000 principal + $200 interest

Your Minimum Payment Due:

Prior to 29 November 2014: After to 29 November 2014:
(3% x new balance)
(3% x $10,200) = $306
(1% x principal) + interest, fees and other charges:
(1% x $10,000) + $200 = $300
In this scenario, your revised MPD is lower.
Scenario 3: Partial payment made every month, with credit limit exceeded

You have exceeded your credit limit of $10,100 by $100.

If your new balance of $10,200 comprises: $10,000 principal + $200 interest

Your Minimum Payment Due:

Prior to 29 November 2014: After to 29 November 2014:
(3% x new balance) + overlimit amount:
(3% x $10,200) + $100 = $406
(1% x principal) + interest, fees and other charges + overlimit amount:
(1% x $10,000) + $200 + $100 = $400
In this scenario, your revised MPD is lower.
Scenario 4: Payment was late in the last month

You did not make the minimum payment last month. The past due amount from last month is $250.

If your current month new balance of $10,280 comprises: $10,000 principal + $200 interest + $80 late payment charge

Your Minimum Payment Due:

Prior to 29 November 2014: After to 29 November 2014:
(3% x new balance) + past due amount:
(3% x $10,260) + $250 = $557.80
(1% x principal) + interest, fees and other charges + past due amount:
(1% x $10,000) + $200 + 80 + $250= $630
In this scenario, your revised MPD is higher.
