Instead of always hitting up the same old malls and squeezing with the mob in town, perhaps it’s time to explore the less frequented parts of Singapore. Tucked away in a serene corner of our sunny island, The Grandstand has an eclectic mix of stores including the latest leisure, health and beauty, and dining outlets sans the crowd.

In view of the upcoming festive season, from now till 6th Jan 2019, DBS/POSB Cardmembers are gifted with an awesome lineup of 20% off promotions at selected restaurants, retail stores, enrichment classes and more. From discounted log cakes to spectacle frames, here are the 10 best deals to give your dollar the best mileage:

1. Kuro Kin Japanese Dining – 20% off total bill

You’ll even be able to eat outside of your comfort zone and explore new flavours like Shirako (cod sperm).

Topping it off is their all-day happy hour where 1-for-1 Sapporo Beer goes at $12. Look out for their monthly Sake promotion too.
