Do you have a penchant for trying out new restaurants and cafes with your friends and loved ones? If you have just nodded your head subconsciously because you are the kind of person who lives to eat, knowing how to get dining discounts in Singapore will go a long way in helping you shave your dining bills every month. From dining deals to credit card rewards, we at share with you our go-to tips and tricks to eating well while minimising the amount of money spent.

How To Get Dining Discounts In Singapore

1. Use a dining rewards credit card

The best credit cards for dining will let you earn rewards when you spend on meals and try out new cafes and restaurants. These cards let you earn cashback, rewards points or air miles when you spend on dining, and some of the better cards even offer year-round 50% deals, special discounts, 1-for-1 offers and all sorts of dining privileges.

2. Take advantage of dining deals that banks offer

Most banks have partnerships with F&B establishments in Singapore, though the restaurants, cafes and bistros they tie up with may not be permanent. Nonetheless, this keeps things refreshing as you always have new dining places to check out. An easy way for you to keep tabs on the latest dining offers that banks have put on the table for you is to sign up for their marketing emails. I always get these emails popping up in my inbox and I'm not complaining a single bit.

3. Invest in a food court discount card

Getting a food court discount card is one of the best things you can do for yourself if you have the tendency to eat your meals at food courts or you head there to dabao meals home for your family. I use the blue Kopitiam card to get my awesome 10% discount every time I eat at Kopitiam or do a takeaway. A card like that will definitely come in handy if you have a family to feed and food courts are practically your
favourite hangout place.

4. Sign up for foodie newsletters

It pays to follow your favourite food bloggers on social media and sign up for their newsletters. Not only will they share the latest hotspots in the Singapore food scene and whether or not you should give these F&B establishments a shot (I like genuine foodies like Miss TamChiak and DanielFoodDiary, as well as foodie community Burpple!), but also you can expect to be notified of discount codes, dining promotions and exclusive deals from time to time.
