I’ll teach you how to get these expensive gadgets completely for free. And yes, it’s 100 per cent legit.

What happens when you want expensive stuff but don’t want to pay the price? You find a way to get it for free

There is a way to get expensive gadgets such as Apple Watch, AirPods Pro and Dyson Airwrap without having to fork out a single cent, and I’ll show you how to do it. 

The secret is… 

Signing up for credit cards

Get that sweet, sweet welcome promotions and gifts when you sign up for credit cards as a first-time customer. 

There are gifts offered to new credit card sign-ups all year round. 

Singsaver has all kinds of freebies when you sign up for a credit card, ranging from Apple products to Ergotune chairs to S$300 in cold, hard cash.

But here’s a trick — you can snag even better offers during limited-time offers during certain months.

SingSaver's Exclusive Flash Deal: The first 5 applicants of any participating Citi, Standard Chartered, CIMB and HSBC credit cards at 12pm and 3pm daily will receive a PlayStation5 Console (SLIM) Disc Edition (worth S$799) or S$500 eCapitaVoucher on top of their existing promotional offers.

Valid till 29 February 2024. T&Cs apply. Click here to check out our past Lucky Draw winners!

For example, Singsaver’s March Madness

During the campaign, which ran in March 2022, new credit card sign-ups could get not only their regular rewards, but also a chance to take part in a lucky draw to win Macbooks, staycations, iPhones and more. 

There was also the AMEX FEBulous Deal, a tie-up between Singsaver and American Express, which gave out Dyson Airwraps worth S$788 for the first 20 applicants daily. 

And if you didn't manage to be the first 20 applicants, you would still get to choose between S$180 cash or Apple AirPods Pro (worth S$379) as your sign-up gift. 

Not bad at all. 

Pro tip: Did you know? If you cancel your card after receiving the gift, you will be considered a “new member” the following year. 

As promotions change every month, you’ll need to keep a close eye to snag the higher value gifts.


Look out for flash deals 

Besides promotions that change monthly, keep lookout for Singsaver’s Flash Deals, where the fastest fingers get the best gifts. 

Through my personal experience, I have gathered that Singsaver gives out rewards of the highest value during this period. 

Past deals include:

  • Dyson Airwrap worth S$799
  • Dyson Corrale worth S$699
  • Xbox S worth S$459
  • Samsonite Straren Spinner 67/24 worth S$600
  • Nintendo Switch OLED worth S$549

Great gifts for not-so-competitive folks as well

For folks who do not have fingers that move fast, do not fret — the regular rewards are not bad as well. 

I have personally encouraged my friends to sign up for credit cards via Singsaver, and they all have received Apple products mainly from Citibank card applications. 

If you’re just starting on your credit card journey (congratulations!) I would recommend Citi Rewards for mile chasers (4mpd) and the Citi Cash Back+ Card for cashback

However, if electronic gadgets aren’t your thing, you can also opt for cold hard cash, which is typically around the S$350 range. 


Minimum spend and salary required, but achievable 

But of course, nothing really comes free — you have to meet requirements such as a minimum salary and make a minimum spending to enjoy these rewards. 

That being said, to be eligible to sign up for a new credit card, you’ll need to make at least S$30,000 yearly, or S$2,500 monthly. 

The minimum spending on most cards is usually S$500 to be eligible for the gift. 

Pro tip: The gifts may be tempting, but do remember that it is important that you pick the right credit card for your lifestyle and avoid getting into credit card debt.
