Whether it’s extra cashback, rebates, or free gifts, these credit card Christmas promotions in Singapore give you more as you spend.
Updated on 22 December 2016.
So you missed the Singles’ Day and Black Friday online shopping frenzy. Fret not, for this time of the year is usually pretty generous with us. Credit cards in Singapore are playing Santa, rewarding us all with a little something extra as we shop for loved ones.
If you think that your one credit card is going to rule them all, think again. Each credit card has its own set of perks to offer, so before you go gift-shopping, we suggest you window-shop for the right card first. We did a bit of digging and excavated these great credit card Christmas promotions in Singapore this 2016.
S$25 Amazon Voucher with American Express Cards
If you don’t have an American Express credit card yet, you’d better get one before 18 December 2016. You receive a S$25 Amazon voucher if you are one of the first 5,500 new American Express cardmembers between 22 November and 18 December 2016. Use your savings by entering the promo code AMEXSG25 when you check out.
20X Rewards on Amazon with Citi Rewards Credit Card
Here’s another great credit card to use if you can’t get enough of Amazon. The Citi Rewards Visa Credit Card gives you 20X rewards (that’s 20 points or 8 miles for every S$1 spent) for all purchases made at Amazon. Considering that most credit cards reward you with only 1.2 miles for every S$1 spent, that’s a pretty generous offer. Valid until December 31.
Earn CapitaVouchers with HSBC Credit Cards
Being organised and far-sighted about your finances is always encouraged. While your credit cards are working hard to earn you an extra voucher here, you can turn your shopping pains into some financial gain for the new year. The extras you’re getting back for spending now can always be used to offset an impending birthday or Valentine’s Day gift a few months from now.
If you have an HSBC credit card, be sure to charge your Christmas shopping to it between 1 – 26 December 2016. You earn a S$10 CapitaVoucher for every S$500 you spend, capped to a maximum of S$50 worth of vouchers per cardmember.
Enrol in the Christmas promotion by sending an SMS in following format to 74722: Christmas<space>16-digit credit card number. Then swipe your card to your heart’s content! Note that you have to be among the first 3,000 registered cardmembers to qualify for this promotion.
15% Cashback with Standard Chartered Credit Cards, Plus Travel Goodies
If you don’t already have a Standard Chartered credit card, maybe this will change your mind. This Christmas, they are offering 15% cashback (capped at S$150) on anything you buy online and overseas. This is more than double the usual 7% cash rebate one would get with the SingPost Platinum Visa Credit Card. This special bonus reward can be enjoyed until December 31.
But that’s not all. Spend with your Standard Chartered credit card to receive the following exclusive travel prizes.
- Samsonite Casso 28-inch spinner luggage. Spend between S$8,000 to S$15,999 to redeem this gift. (Limited to 3,500 redemptions).
- 1-night Stay at Wonderful Room, W Hotel, Sentosa Cove. Spend more than S$16,000 to redeem this reward. (Limited to 1,000 redemptions.)
- Chance to win 1 pair of Singapore Airlines Suites tickets to Paris. Spend S$1,000 to get 10 chances, and receive 1 chance per subsequent S$100. (Limited to 7 winners).
And while you’re working your way up to redeeming the above rewards, don’t forget to take part in the Shake The Tree game. Spend S$150 or more in eligible purchases in a single transaction for a chance to win a prize, once a day.
Win Cash Credits or Vouchers with DBS Credit Cards
Got a DBS Woman’s card or a DBS Black Visa instead? Well, then know that as long as you spend a minimum of S$250 in a single receipt this festive season now until the end of the year, you’ll be treated to guaranteed cash-credit redemptions or stand a chance to win shopping vouchers of higher value.
All you need to do is download the DBS Lifestyle app where a game determines what you’ll win — will it be cash credits ranging from S$5 to S$15 or a S$50 wt+ voucher by Wing Tai? Whatever it is, you win.
Win Vouchers or a Limited Edition G-Shock Watch with UOB Cards
If you own a UOB Lady’s card or the UOB Visa Signature card, you’ll be able to redeem a S$10 Far East Organization Mall voucher when you spend S$200 at participating malls such as Orchard Central, Clarke Quay Central, Far East Square and Riverside Point. But you should hurry because this is only valid until January 1, 2017, while stocks last.
And if you have a generous shopping budget of S$2,500, simply spend this amount within 6 receipts in Singapore or overseas stores to get a limited edition G-Shock contactless wearable designed by artist JaeSuk Kim. Besides being gorgeous arm candy, did you know that you can hook up your UOB Contactless Card to your watch? Once you’ve done so, you can use your watch to tap, pay, and earn 0.5% rebate on all your contactless payments! Purchases have to made before 31 December 2016 to qualify.
