Best DBS/POSB Deals To Feel Celebratory About In August Even With NDP Postponed

DBS/POSB deals in August

Look, we get it. In order to prepare for National Day 2021 you’ve listened to our original NDP song on loop till you can recite the lyrics backwards. Hearing news of the parade’s postponement was a crushing blow for most of us, but if you’re a DBS/POSB Cardmember, perhaps there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

On 8th and 9th August 2021*, DBS/POSB Cardmembers can look forward to a slew of attractive deals and promos. From getting discounts when you order food delivery through your favourite apps to earning cashback when you make your first investment, DBS has your back fully covered with their Extra Bonus Day deals.

*All promotions are valid only on 8th and 9th August 2021 unless otherwise stated.

– Best food deals –

Enjoy up to 8% cashback for food delivery & other online dining

For those of us stuck working from home, constantly ordering in can really put a strain on the wallet. Relieve some of that burden when you use your DBS/POSB Cards for payment on food deliveries and other forms of online dining. Online dining refers to F&B expenditure via online platforms, paid using cards as opposed to bank transfers.

You’ll get to redeem 8% cashback with no minimum spending required on top of other dining deals.

These dining deals include:

  • ChopeDeals – Up to an additional $6 off for newcomers
  • Foodpanda 50% off last hour deals for existing users
  • ShopBack GO – Up to $100 bonus cashback on sure-win scratch cards
  • WhyQ $5 off your first order

With so many options to choose from, even the worst home cooks will no longer have an excuse to live on a diet of cup noodles everyday.

Use DBS PayLah! for hawker deals

Singapore has a strong local hawker scene, and is a good alternative for those who prefer a hearty bowl of bak chor mee over burgers and steaks. 

You can now earn 8% cashback on your first DBS PayLah! transaction when you order through WhyQ. The cashback is capped at $1 for the first 300,000 customers, with no minimum spend required.

This cashback promo is also applicable for payment at any other merchants, excluding Gojek, ComfortDelGro and Google Pay.

From now till 31st August 2021, early birds who order in advance on WhyQ with DBS PayLah! can also claim up to $6 off for new users and $2 off for all users.
