Everybody loves credit card sign-up promotions, but not many of us realise the promotions don’t end with a welcome gift. Banks actually shower us with tons of lifestyle deals and perks just for owning and using their credit cards or debit cards.

Once in a while, we even get super exclusive deals like priority early access to concert tickets. Remember the UOB pre-sale in 2023 that saw an onslaught of Swifties flood UOB? More recently, UOB cardholders also got early access to Waterbomb Singapore 2024.

Here’s a look at all the ongoing bank offers and deals in Singapore that you can enjoy with your credit card or simply with your banking app, including lucky draws, cashback or gift promotions, and flight deals.

Even though the Standard Chartered Simply Cash Credit Card isn’t a miles card (the Standard Chartered Journey Credit Card takes that spot), this promotion makes it a fantastic option for travellers this Jun 2024. Ready to maximise your travel spending without the extra fees? Here’s a great way to do it:

From now until 31 May 2024, you can enjoy 0% foreign transaction fees on your travel spends with the SC Simply Cash Credit Card. Just follow these three simple steps to unlock this benefit:

  1. Register: Send an SMS with the code FXSC to 77222 to successfully register for the promotion.

  2. Spend: Make sure to spend at least S$2,500 on your card before May 31, 2024.

  3. Earn Cashback: After meeting the spending requirement, you’ll receive 3.5% cashback on all foreign currency transactions during June 2024, up to a cap of S$50.

Do note that the 3.5% cashback is not on top of the 0% foreign transaction fees. The 3.5% offsets:

  • A prevailing charge of 1% imposed by Visa on your transaction

  • A prevailing fee of 2.5% of the converted Singapore Dollars amount of your transaction

This promotion is perfect for savvy travellers looking to save on fees. But act fast—registration is limited to the first 5,000 cardholders, and you only have until 31 May 2024 to spend $2,500 on your card.

This one isn’t quite a bank promotion or offer, but you could stand to win up to $33,000 if you take part in the 43rd UOB Painting of the Year competition. 

Open to all Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents, whether you’re an established or emerging artist, this is your chance to showcase your talent and possibly win big.

Credit card privilege programmes in Singapore

If you own a credit card, you’re entitled to dining, travel, and other lifestyle offers you may not even know about. Each bank has their own privilege programme or deals catalogue that makes claiming a deal as easy as applying a promo code or claiming a voucher on your banking app. 

These differ from rewards programmes that let you redeem gifts using points accumulated from your credit card spending—for example, redeeming a $5 NTUC voucher with 100 points. Here, we’re talking about catalogues of deals and promotions that you have the privilege of accessing simply because you have a credit card with that bank—for example, showing your credit card at a restaurant to enjoy a 1-for-1 offer on all main courses.

Here’s a list of credit card promotion/privilege programmes in Singapore for UOB, DBS, and more. 

UOB: UOB Rewards+

UOB Rewards+ is the UOB rewards programme that all UOB Cardmembers are entitled to. It also claims to be the largest rewards catalogue in Singapore. So if you have a UOB card, make sure you download the UOB TMRW app to browse all deals. You can also view dining deals at The Dining Advisor.

Standard Chartered: The Good Life

The Good Life Privileges is a deals and rewards programme open to anyone with a Standard Chartered credit or debit card (or both).

Citibank: Citi World Privileges

Citi World Privileges is full of deals for not just the rest of the world while you’re on holiday, but when you’re back home in Singapore too.

DBS Privileges and Offers

DBS may not have a fancy schmancy name for their credit card offers programme, but they’ve still got a ton of good deals you should check out.

American Express: Love Dining and Chillax

Amex Platinum cards aren’t the most accessible, but give you access to tons of dining deals and privileges. Check out their Love Dining deals for offers at restaurants and hotels, and their Chillax programme 1-for-1 drink offers and welcome cocktails at bars around the island.

HSBC Credit Card Promotions and Deals

Like DBS, HSBC doesn’t have a dedicated name for their HSBC credit card promotions programme. An HSBC credit card also gives you access to standard offers on The Entertainer with HSBC, although only selected cards give you premium offers.

OCBC Credit Card Promotions

Another nameless programme, OCBC’s credit card promotions and deals span across food, fashion, health and many other categories.

Maybank Credit Card Promotions

The Maybank credit card promotions are all listed online, but don’t forget to change the filter to see the promotions you want. Categories include: dining, beauty, travel, wellness, shopping, and more. There doesn’t seem to be a way to see all categories at once.

CIMB Credit Card Promotions

Check out CIMB’s credit card deals across categories like dining, travel and lifestyle, e-commerce, and beauty and wellness. You can also select “near me” to see deals based on your location.
