In most of our dictionaries, the word holiday translates to a mandatory break every 6 months or so to restore your mental sanity. And when it comes to quick getaways, no destination can better rejuvenate your body, satisfy your stomach and bring new life to your wardrobe than the wonderful Land of Smiles – Thailand.

But whether you’re seeking out the elusive Thai cherry blossoms in Chiang Rai, or hitting up every single night market in Bangkok – if you’re a DBS/POSB cardmember, here’s one more cash-saving app you need to download before you jet off.

UTU Rewards Thailand is a global loyalty program that lets you register your payment cards on the mobile app, and earn and redeem points when you shop at over 15,000 merchant outlets in Thailand. While most of us are used to the 1-3 day redemption wait period required for most loyalty programmes, UTU lets you use your accumulated points instantly to redeem cashback.

They’ve also partnered with DBS to offer all cardmembers travelling to Bangkok some travel exclusives to sweeten the deal when you register and pay with any DBS/POSB Card. Here are some you’ll unlock once you register successfully: 

 

1. 1-for-1 Omurice at Omu Japanese Omurice Restaurant
