All the bluetooth earphone i am using now (almost a dozen of them), each cost no more than S$1 (most of it cost no more than S$0.50).
Nobody here will believe what u said.

Just as much as u tell ppl can still use 10 cent to buy things in Sg. Maybe go p toilet still can.

U may wish to bring your discussion here -

Interesting spot! Just when i was mentioning that the old qoo10 days are gone. Also saw a cheaper deal at $36++ for 2 ways for sindo with a minimum order quantity of 20pcs. only gripe is the sellers are all pretty new without any previous reviews for the cheaper ones. Shall wait to see the credibility

They are not a charity. They run a business, which is applying a markup on currency conversion.
Ah, i noticed I've framed that wrongly. I'm definitely not complaining about 200 rupiah variance but how in a matter of a day or two the XE rate rose to 11,000++. Its no wonder why hotels don't collect deposits in their local currency any longer, noticed that on my XE card throughout my three nights i had a 1% to 2% markup on several days. Thought it was weird but it could be just currency fluctuations.

Muahaha..... now then you say.
I had oredi bought 10 sets of 2-way tickets for S$56 each on my last trip to Batam. Validity is until 31.03.2023..... hope they dun chut pattern and void the tickets.

As my usual habit..... I like to kpo and tcss alot even with strangers. I was taking a rest at the ferry agent office in Harbourfront and managed to tcss with the staff there.
During the tcss.... I learnt that they sell discounted tickets to tour groups.... S$63 each for below 5pax and S$56 each for more than 5pax..... managed to psycho them to sell me 10 sets of 2-way tickets at the discounted price.... 😀

I have a BNI bank account in Singapore..... I can use their bankcard to make withdrawals in Batam bypassing the need for moneychangers. No overseas service charge and exchange rate on par with the market rates. Very convenient.

Not bad idea. Worth considering especially for regular cheongsters. But ferry fare is the killer.

Noted your explanations with thanks.

I think it is worth to provide some explanations on how MasterCard/VISA cards work. I assume also other international circuits work in the same way, even with some slight variations, because the business is the same.

When you purchase a good with a credit card out of your country (in local currency!! ALWAYS opt for the local currency!!), or you withdraw money abroad in local currency, you will be charged using the current interbank buying rate at the time the transaction is finalized, the one we see on XE.COM (there are two exchange rates at any time: one for buying, one for selling a currency) PLUS a +2% fee (that goes to MasterCard/VISA).

When you do several withdrawals in a day, it is possible, but not likely, that the exchange rates are different.
When you use a credit card to withdraw money from ATM, that is cash advance. They lend you money. Then, on top of that +2%, you also pay +4%. ==> ALWAYS USE DEBIT CARDS to withdraw money from ATMs.
On top of that, for debit or credit cards, it is possible that the local bank and your bank also apply their fees (my bank charges ~3 SGD flat fee on each withdrawal I do abroad).

Said all this, the cheapest way to convert our home currency to a local currency is most of the times one of the following two:
1) Use a debit card on an ATM (at best, we pay %2 + some 2 SGD flat fee). This is also the easiest and less time consuming. I do this.
2) Search an exchange office that applies best conversion rates. This takes time, but it may be profitable, because some offices apply a fee that is less than 2%, for example if you give new 100 USD notes, that have a special market in Indonesia (I think they are good for unofficial business transactions). I do this when I have some USD cash, which I want to spend in Batam

I do the same with my bank card, but do not be too optimistic.
As I have explained above, you will pay a +2% fee applied on the XE rate, not because BNI bank is bad, but because that is how international circuits change currency. Even if your card is does not pass via VISA or MAsterCard (do you see their logos on your BNI card?), then you have to pay some 2% (ok, 1.5%?) to the international circuit that makes the conversion.
What I write is not valid, only if your BNI bank account in Singapore is denominated in IDR, which I doubt.

It depends on when the transaction is finalized. Rates fluctuate up and down. I am sure you do not think that OCBC systematically loses money on ATM withdrawals...

Never once I paid a reject fee. Although most of the time I sit in the lobby and observe from a distance when she comes in. Lol

Like the other poster mentioned, now spas advertise their girls in ig, TikTok or telegram. See what you like, head down and proceed from there. Some of them able to come to your hotel for ST or overnight.
