313@somerset x Rely
2020 has been a rough year, and a spot of retail therapy could really help to alleviate our woes from the pandemic, economy, and inability to travel. That said, we may not have the heart to splurge on the things we’ve been eyeing – all for the sake of financial prudence. The good news is, 313@somerset is rolling out a brand new shopping experience with Rely at 0% interest.
People often look at the word “instalments” with disdain, due to the notoriety of sneaky interest rates building up to hefty debt over time. But in this case, the “shop now, pay later” service will be completely interest-free. Just pay a quarter of the price at the point of purchase, and continue knocking the amount off once every 2 weeks for 3 repayment cycles – not a cent more.
How it works – connect your card and pay through an app
Rely is a “shop now, pay later” service which is most widely used on Qoo10. For the first time ever, it’s partnering with a shopping mall so you can pay for IRL purchases in bits and pieces – without incurring extra costs along the way. This provides a whole new shopping experience, where you can shop now and pay later.
To be eligible for the 313@somerset x Rely “shop now, pay later” service, you’ll first have to download the free Lendlease Plus App, available on both Android and iOS devices. Through the app, you’ll be able to register for a Rely account. Pssst…read on to find out how you can get an exclusive sign-up bonus.
Connect your debit or credit card to your Rely account, and you can start using the Lendlease Plus App itself to pay later at participating retailers within 313@somerset, for purchases $40 and above.
Rely supports cards across all the major banks, so your expenditure through the app will go towards earning card rewards. Within Lendlease Plus itself, you’ll also be racking up Plus$ reward points which can be used to redeem gift vouchers.
When you buy something using Rely, you can split your purchases into 4 payments without any interest or additional fees. Walk home with your purchases after only paying 1/4 of the cost! The rest of your payments will be automatically charged to your connected card every 2 weeks.
So for an example where your total bill is $200, you’ll pay $50 at the point of purchase, followed by $50 once every 2 weeks for 3 more payments. You’ll be able to keep track of your purchases through the app, so no worries on shock deductions or being behind on payment.
Free shopping voucher & cashback for Lendlease Plus App users
As a sweet bonus to welcome you aboard the 313@somerset x Rely experience, the first 250 TSL readers who register for a Lendlease Plus membership via the app using the promo code <313TSL20> will get a $20 Lendlease e-voucher. This can be redeemed at participating stores which accept Rely as a payment mode.
Get cashback in the form of Plus$ points when you shop and pay later with Rely via the Lendlease Plus app at participating stores within 313@somerset:
- Spend $60 to get 16% cashback from Mondays to Thursdays, exclusive of PH.
Capped at 20,000 Plus$ points, worth $10 Lendlease e-voucher
- Spend $60 to get 8% cashback from Fridays to Sundays, inclusive of PH.
Capped at 10,000 Plus$ points, worth $5 Lendlease e-voucher.
The $60 has to be made in a single Rely transaction, and each Lendlease Plus member is entitled to a maximum of 3 redemptions throughout the promo period, till 11th February 2021. All redemptions are available on a first-come, first-served basis and while stocks last.
Here’s a sneak preview as inspo for what you can spend on within 313@somerset, from clothes, shoes and accessories to beauty and wellness treatments. You can check out the full list of participating stores for even more options to shop now, pay later.
