Credit card deals to save money on the stuff you love, during COVID-19

This new decade certainly did not start off with the bang we were expecting, but let’s see how we can make the most of it by saving money through the best credit card deals and promotions.

The New Norm

With the emergence and widespread rampage of COVID-19 in the world, the Singapore government has taken aggressive measures to contain and curb the spread of COVID-19. The implementation of Stay-Home-Notices (SHN), quarantine orders (QO), and social distancing measures, and prompts from the government to stay home means that many of us are now spending unprecedented lengths of time at home.

Many offices are as if Thanos had snapped his fingers – and in a flash we’re now Team A and Team B. Meetings globally have migrated online, utilising video conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Hangout – the widespread phenomenon has seen Zoom adding more video conferencing users this year than in all of 2019.

Lifestyle shifts

Our lifestyles also require us to adapt swiftly to this new situation. Food delivery and grocery delivery services have seen an uptick in demand, and as a result we’ve seen orders from RedMart exceeding 300 percent of the weekly average.

However, your savings don’t necessarily need to take a tank. You can optimise your credit card spend behaviour and take advantage of credit card deals and programmes, so you can still get the biggest bang for your buck during these uncertain times.


1. Dining Deals

As a result from all the work from home arrangements, many of us are looking to delivery services for our lunch and dinner arrangements.
