Things you can do with your Plus! Card
Gone are the days where you thought that an NTUC Plus! Card was just something your parents used at the grocery store checkout. Now with the likes of Zalora, ASOS, and Etude House linking up with Plus!, a Plus! Membership is as hip and youthful as it can possibly get.
Here are 5 reasons the Plus! Card will make a great addition to your wallet.
1. Shop at Plus! Marketplace for FREE SHIPPING and up to 70% discounts
Between 20 June to 31 July 2016, there’ll be FREE shipping for selected local fashion chains, high-end watches and quirky knick-knacks alike. If you’re gonna go on a good ol’ shopping spree on the interwebz, you might as well earn some virtual LinkPoints while you’re at it. When you buy from the merchants at Plus! Marketplace, these LinkPoints can be accumulated to offset your future buys.
That translates to virtual points, but real-life savings of cold, hard cash.
Before you think it’ll be difficult to find something that tickles your fancy, the Plus! Marketplace offers a massive selection of both international favourites and local niche brands. It’s like the marketplace of your dreams, without even having to get off your bum.
The icing on the cake? FREE shipping and up to 70% off, storewide.
Given the chance to procure some awesome purchases from the likes of OPI, Kinohimitsu, Topazette and Truffula Forest while saving lots of money at the same time, I foresee a few straight hours of mouse-clicking madness and retail therapy!
2. Earn LinkPoints when you shop online
Toss all ideas of the Plus! Card being used only at NTUC Fairprice out the window. Having the card means owning exclusive rights to shop online on Plus! Gateway, where over 200 global brands you know and love are available. Names like Sephora, Apple, MDS Collections, won’t just ring a bell, they’ll get your heart racing.
Shopping any other way, be it online or from physical stores, would mean the lack of additional goodies. Simply click through to the respective merchant pages via Plus! Gateway, however, and you’ll be rewarded up LinkPoints galore. Think 2x LinkPoints earning and up to 6 LinkPoints for every $1 spent! Not too shabby, huh?
Online shipping also extends to Plus! Marketplace and their direct e-commerce merchants.
3. Enjoy discounts at your favourite stores…
The slew of major brands that are Plus! Partners means that you can save money AND earn LinkPoints when you’re shopping for all your favourite brands and lifestyle needs.
Become the definition of stylo-milo with Zalora fashion and StrawberryNet cosmetics. Deck your living spaces out with treasure finds from Courts and HipVan. You can even start planning your next getaway courtesy of Agoda’s hotel listings!
All you’ve got to do is key in your NRIC during the checkout portion to earn LinkPoints. Every week, there will be a special promotional code of up to 20% off depending on the featured merchant that week.

4. …as well as offline deals.
Even when you take it offline, there’ll still be savings abound. Good news for those who think that a Plus! Card is only to be flashed during grocery runs at Fairprice. That tiny but mighty piece of plastic is going to be whipped out of your wallet a lot more starting from now.
There’s a huge array of participating merchants where you can offset your purchases when shopping at their retail stores. So whether you’re picking up some makeup at Etude House, investing in a gorgeous piece of Poh Heng jewellery or sipping on a quality brew at Hoshino Coffee, you’ll get to enjoy savings aplenty.

5. Savour the greatest GSS savings you’ve ever experienced
Arguably every Singaporean’s fave season, the middle of each year puts our national pastime into full swing.
Between 20 June to 31 July 2016, there’ll be different deals every single week. Earn LinkPoints while you buy, and you could be saving up to a whopping 70% on regular purchases!
As a bonus treat, shoppers who purchase items with their Plus! Visa credit & debit cards will be able to earn a bonus 1,000 (!!) LinkPoints with an accumulative spend of $300 throughout the campaign period*.
I’m not sure about you, but I’ll be sure to rack up that free thousand in my LinkPoint balance before you can even say, “challenge accepted”.

Plus! Card: Savings Wherever You Go
By now, the savings sound so irresistible that I’m totally tempted to “borrow” my mother’s Plus! Card and go on an epic shopping spree for the ages. Two is always better than one, though. So why not get your hands on a Plus! Card of your own and start cashing in on those LinkPoints and the abundance of savings that will follow.
There are simple membership cards available, or you could choose to get one with Visa credit or debit payment capabilities weaved in. Given the wide range of choices on offer, there’s bound to be the perfect Plus! Card for you! Did we also mention that the application process is an absolute breeze?
