Singtel Dash EasyEarn Review
Aside from spending, I am also using Dash to save my money. With the current COVID-19 situation, banks have been cutting interest rates. But Dash EasyEarn is providing 2% p.a for your saving. Technically, Dash Easy Savings Account is a insurance policy, but it works like a bank savings account. So what are the pros and cons?
|2% per annum interest (much better than bank savings account or even fixed deposit)|
This 2% holds for deposits up to $20,000
Protected by SDIC
No lock-in period
Comes bundled with life insurance (Be automatically covered with a death benefit of 105% of your Account Value)
|There is a $0.70 fee for withdrawing to bank account (quite a low fee in my personal opinion)|
Minimum balance of $2000 in order to earn the max 2% interest (quite a low requirement again in my personal option)
The 2% interest rate is only guaranteed for the first policy year.
Tight integration with eNETS for topup
I had to use eNETS for the transfer of funds into Dash EasyEarn, and it is via eNETS only. The funds are almost in within split seconds and I could see the funds in Dash EasyEarn straight away.
A popular question that i always get on my messenger chat from users is… Is Dash EasyEarn Safe to place my money?
Of course it is safe. Why so?
Reason #1: Etiqa (the insurance company behind Dash EasyEarn) is regulated by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Their MAS license can be found on the MAS official website.
Reason #2 : Dash EasyEarn is a capital-guaranteed savings insurance policy. In other words, it is not possible to lose the principal amount you put in.
Reason #3: It is protected up to specified limits by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation (SDIC).
Your money in Singtel Dash EasyEarn is insured up to S$100,000 per account. Touch wood, in the (unlikely) event that Dash EasyEarn (Etiqa) collapses, your money up to S$100,000 is safe.
You can see that Etiqa is under SDIC list of Policy Owners’ Protection (PPF) Scheme Members on the SDIC official website.
