2. Get a $2 discount on any Starbucks handcrafted beverage

Sure it’s nice to chill at a hipster cafe, but let’s not forget good ol’ Starbucks. You’re not going to be getting that much coffee for the same price at those cafes, and it’s hard to compete when new concoctions keep popping up on their menu.

So the next time your caffeine craving demands attention, opt for a little cup of ice-blended heaven. Pay with your Visa payWave card or Visa on your mobile and you’ll score $2 off your coffee. Be warned: it’s only valid till the end of August, so go get bux off that caffeine fix! 

Redemption Period: Until 15 August 2016
Redeem this at Starbucks outlets!


3. Get your hands on 10% +$10 off food vouchers every Friday



Can we say TGIF louder because Visa and Chope are about to make your friyay bigger and better in the taste department. Pick from Chope’s list of top restaurants like Dancing Crab, Wild Honey, and Bincho every Friday and you’ll get to buy vouchers for them at an additional $10 off, on top of a 10% discount!

These vouchers also make for great presents for your foodie friends if you’re at a loss of what to get them, and they might just call you along to share the joy too. Fastest fingers win, so get them on Fridays before they run out.
