Get A Year’s Worth of Free Grab Rides This October

|Posted by | Credit Cards, Deals and Promotions


This October, sign up for these 4 credit cards and get S$550 Grab Vouchers free – only for Shioktoberfest 2017!

More than convenience and security, credit cards offer privileges, rewards and perks which can add up to significant savings. And with our wildly popular Shioktberfest, you will save even more money.

Did you know that if you sign up for 4 credit cards, you can earn up to S$550 in Grab Vouchers? This will save you a chunk on your commutes – whether for convenient family outings, when you need to rush to an appointment, or simply to enjoy a rainy-day indulgence.

The offer may be tempting, but don’t rush to sign up for all 4 cards by yourself, lest you take a hit to your credit rating. Also, as each card gives you a credit limit, you may be taking on too much unsecured credit.

Having said that, credit cards are created to provide savings in different spending categories, so consider spreading these 4 cards among your family members. That way, everyone can help to reduce the household budget via a wide range of perks and privileges.

The following 4 credit cards offer savings for dining, travel, shopping, travel and daily spending! And if you and your family gets all 4 credit cards, you will receive up to S$550 Grab Vouchers.
