5 Smart Things You should do to Pay Less in 2021

1. Pay your Singapore Power Bill with UOB One card 

UOB One card holders to get enjoy up to 6% rebate on their SP Utilities bills should they be eligible for the quarterly cash rebate. Paying for your utilities has not been easier. With the introduction of open market electricity (OEM) providers, we are already able to enjoy savings on our electricity bills by choosing the provider that most aligns with our household needs. To further our savings, UOB one card holders can add their card to the SP Utilities app for recurring payment. There’s one smart way to pay less even without thinking about it. 

2. Add your frequently used card to Shopback

Shopback, a cashback site that’s headquartered in Singapore, helps you get money back when you purchase items online or when you dine in restaurants that are on Shopback Go. It’s a free service that anyone with a credit card can sign up for. Simply add your credit card that’s dedicated to dining out onto the Shopback app and you’ll get free money back when you pay. Cashback, in our experience, is almost instant. Once you have accumulated a minimum of $10, you’ll be able to withdraw actual cash into your bank account. It’s technically free money with a 1 time effort. Don’t procrastinate, get it done now.
