New functions on PayLah! App
Advancements in technology like the DBS PayLah! app have been a godsend. Just think - while we had to wait on friends to find an ATM to draw out cash they owed us before, they can now make the funds transfer with a few simple taps on their phone. No excuses for delayed payments, wallet-spoiling coins, or confusion over splitting the bill anymore.
But to add even more convenience to our lives, PayLah! has now upgraded to include even more useful functions directly within their app, such as purchasing travel and mobile phone insurance, movie tickets and purchasing dining deals.
Buy insurance directly on the app
The importance of protecting our mobile phones should not be overlooked. Most people already have personal health insurance, so having the same for our phone isn’t far-fetched, since to some of us, our phones are our lives.
Phone casings can only do so much. Insurance gives you 100% ease of mind
As long as your phone is 3 years old or less, it qualifies for the new Mobile Protect insurance plan offered directly from the PayLah! App. It costs just 50¢ per day - cheaper than the price of a bus ride - and covers any phone-related predicament no matter which country you’re in, including theft and screen cracks.
Yup, that means toilet bowl water damage, concrete pavements, or pickpockets have got nothing on you.
Sign up for the plan by 31st May 2019 and you’ll get a 10% discount!
Enjoy discounted travel insurance
Now that you’ve got your phone covered, it’s time to do the same for yourself before going overseas. It’s always best to have travel insurance in the event of situations like flight delays, missing baggage and personal accidents.
TravellerShield Plus Insurance is offering 60% off Single Trip Plans and 25% off Annual Multi-Trip Plans from now until 30th June 2019, so you can get your upcoming holiday sorted without a hitch.
The best part about it besides booking directly on the app? All your personal details are already pre-filled, so you skip the tedious process of filling up your particulars one by one.
Get $3 off movie tickets and exclusive dining deals
If you’re still reeling from having to pay more than usual to watch Avengers: Endgame, here’s a deal that’ll make your movie-watching much more budget-friendly.
The PayLah! app allows you to access Golden Village’s booking site without downloading another app, and when you pay via your PayLah! account, you get $3 off per ticket. Hey, that works out to an estimated $6.50 for the latest blockbuster on a weekday - a movie date after work sounds like a plan.

And you can’t possibly watch a movie on an empty stomach. Reserve a table at your favourite restaurants or cafes via the PayLah! App and get discounts of up to $15 off ChopeDeals dining vouchers when you pay with PayLah!.

Make your payments more easily with DBS PayLah! app
These days, QR payments with PayLah! is increasingly accepted at stores islandwide - even hawker stalls! The ease of using the app could even make you do away with carrying around a fat wallet altogether. Even better - turn on Auto Debit and you won’t have to top up your e-wallet again.
