10 Restaurants with a 50% Discount from Amex Platinum

Why pay the full price at some of the best restaurants in Singapore when you can just pay half?

Being a foodie in Singapore is a serious commitment. Dinner for two at a trendy restaurant costs around S$145, and you can expect to pay double at concept restaurants headlined by celebrity chefs.

While it’s never a waste to spend money where it makes you happy, you don’t always have to pay full price for it. And this is why the American Express Platinum Card is the credit card for the serious foodie.

Cardholders get instant access to Palate Dining Privileges, which gives you 50% off at Singapore’s best restaurants when dining with a friend, with a minimum of two ala carte orders. You also get a complimentary Far Card Membership worth S$425, and 15% off Singapore’s hottest bars.
