For The Techy Dad

So dad loves his iPad and DSLR, PlayStation and smart watches? Shopping for him should be quite a breeze then, if you could just get your hands on his wish list. Make a beeline for Best Denki’s online store where you could save up to S$80 when you spend a minimum of S$1,200 with their e-coupons.

For The Sports Fanatic

The French Open is on, and dad is glued to all the exciting clay-court action, super inspired by the likes of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovich. So inspired that he can’t seem to stop talking about a new, state-of-the-art tennis racquet that’d give him an edge. Or maybe yours is a big football or golf fan.

Whichever sport dad fancies, you may be able to score him a gift that would make him feel like a champ while you win at Royal Sporting House. They’re sporting a discount of up to 30% with S$100 nett purchase in store until July 31.

For The Foodie

Is your dad always trying out new recipes and binge-watching the Chef’s Table? Well, it sounds like the best way to his heart this Father’s Day is through his stomach. Whip out you your UOB card and get ready to eat your hearts out at 1-for-1 buffets. Take your pick from Caprilicious at Changi City Point or Triple Three at Mandarin Orchard Singapore.

Or hey, knock back a few beers with the old man at The Mad Men Attic Bar, Anti:dote at the Fairmont, or any of the bars where you’ll score a good deal with your American Express Platinum Credit Card — plus a few more brownie points with dad.

For The Arty-farty Father

We may not have the Louvre, but we do have the world's largest public collection of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian art at the National Gallery Singapore which offers a gift membership where you can enjoy unlimited free entry to all exhibitions, priority access, discounts and more.

For the culture vulture who has a soft spot for musicals, there is no doubt that tickets to The Sound of Music or Westside Story will be music to dad’s ears. The good news for you? Sistic is offering a booking-fee waiver for selected events booked online and via its mobile app when you charge it to your Standard Chartered Mastercard.

For The Jetsetter

This Father’s Day, go the extra mile for the man of the hour. Literally. Redeem a trip to dream destinations such as the Maldives and Finland with KrisFlyer miles accumulated on your American Express KrisFlyer Credit Card. Actually go on that holiday you guys have been talking since two Christmases ago.

Alternatively, you could also enjoy discounts off accommodations. Check if your credit card has any promotions for Agoda or Expedia.

For The Dapper Dad

If your dad has more clothes than you and your mum combined, and watches Mad Men secretly for the fashion, a spiffy new addition to his wardrobe should put a smile on his face. Whether it’s a well-tailored jacket, a leather briefcase, or a signet ring as a finishing touch, there’s a perfect gift somewhere inside TANGS.

Psst, in case you haven’t heard, the TANGS sale is now on with discounts of up to 70% until July 2. TANGS Members also enjoy a 10% rebate when you spend with your Standard Chartered credit card. Terms and conditions apply.
