Get LinkPoints Rewards this CNY
Chinese New Year can be an expensive affair with jacked up prices of nearly anything and everything in Singapore. Embracing the kiasu spirit, we should be constantly on the lookout for every lobang that’ll lessen the stress on our wallets.
Whether you’re shopping for a cheongsam on ZALORA or buying abalone for your reunion dinner, keep an eye out for rewards you can earn with your Plus! Card. Yup, that's the card that your mom whips out without fail at NTUC when she's making payment. And if she's doing it right, you'll have enough LinkPoints to get rebates at Tung Look, Swensens, Skechers, COURTS, and even ZALORA!
1. ZALORA - Up to 91 LinkPoints for every $2 spent above $120

Don’t hold yourself back if you’re planning to splurge on new outfits this Lunar New Year. For every $2 spent on ZALORA, you’ll receive 1 LinkPoint and 90 bonus LinkPoints for purchase above $120 in a single order. Looks like it’s time to finally check out that cute top that ZALORA's been reminding you nonstop that's been abandoned in your shopping cart!
To earn LinkPoints, simply enter your NRIC/ FIN details on ZALORA’s checkout page. Those who’ve already started storing up their LinkPoints can also conveniently redeem a $10 e-gift card with every 1,470 LinkPoints.
2. Bee Cheng Hiang - 2 LinkPoints for every dollar spent

Bakkwa is to CNY what turkey is to Christmas. A childhood favourite of many, we can’t help but feel disappointed when any house we visit doesn’t have our favourite CNY staple. Don’t leave your guests disappointed and get your bakkwa fill at Bee Cheng Hiang where you’ll earn 2 LinkPoints for every dollar spent!
If you're unsure of what to get, you'll be safe with a Signature Sliced Pork Bakkwa (from $55.00/Kg), that's freshly grilled daily, or the vacuum packed Mini Ez Pork ($20.40/300G).
3. Caltex - 3 LinkPoints for every litre of fuel + instant rebate of $10 with 150 accumulated LinkPoints
CNY visiting can take a toll on your car fuel, especially if you have family and friends living in every corner from Pasir Ris to Bukit Batok. Instead of wasting angpao money on fuel, get your tanks filled at Caltex and be rewarded 3 LinkPoints for every litre of fuel topped up, as well as an instant rebate of $1 with 150 accumulated LinkPoints.
