While there are currently three Design Hotels in Singapore, two of them have officially jumped on the list of Design Hotels™ (from 16 March 2016) that participate in the Starwood Preferred Guest programme. Both of them are currently Category 4 properties and will require 10,000 Starpoints for a free night.
1. Wanderlust, Singapore, a Member of Design Hotels™
2 Dickson Road, Singapore 209494 (SPG Category 4)
Wanderlust is located in Little India and it offers different themed rooms for guests with a sense of adventure. This is also Unlisted Collection's third property in Singapore.
2. New Majestic Hotel, Singapore, a Member of Design Hotels™
31-37 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore 089845 (SPG Category 4)
The New Majestic Hotel is one of Singapore's most hipster and possibly most Instagram-ed hotel. The property is housed in a traditional conservation shop house located in the heart of Chinatown and it focuses on strong design, local culture and the Arts.
From what I can see the Wanderlust Hotel has the cheapest room rate (starts from S$149++) and it could a great way for SPG members to earn and retain status. According to the website, Design Hotels and SPG currently have limited participation and this is what SPG Members can expect from the stay:
- 2 Starpoints per eligible US dollar spent (with a 50% bonus for SPG Gold and Platinum members, and 100% bonus for Platinum members with a minimum of 75 Eligible Nights)
- Night and stay credit toward elite status
- On-property benefits of internet access and bottled water in room
- Gold Preferred and Platinum Preferred members will automatically receive a Starpoints bonus as their Welcome Gift.
Hilton Honors members are able to earn Double Hilton Honors Points on every stay from 01 May 2018 to 31 August 2018. As most of you would already be aware, a number of changes took place early this month and the number of points that you can potentially earn from an eligible stay have been changed. Registration for this promotion is required but the landing page has not been activated yet - more information will be shared once this is live.
IHG Rewards Club members can now register for the latest Accelerate promotion that will be running from 01 May 2018 to 31 July 2018. All you have to do is to click on the Accelerate Q2 landing page and sign-in using your IHG Rewards Club details to reveal a set of tailored challenges which you will have the option of completing during the aforementioned period.
Earn extra Starpoints (or Marriott Rewards Points) on each eligible night (starting from your third night) that you spend at participating SPG hotels and resorts from 16 April 2018 to 20 July 2018 - registration for SPG More Nights, More Starpoints is necessary for you to take advantage of this promotion and you will have to do so by 30 June 2018 (even though you can earn bonus points through 20 July 2018). There is also a similar Marriott Rewards promotion that is running concurrently and it gives you 750 bonus Marriott Rewards Points per night (starting on the third eligible night) during the same period.
Spend at least S$500 on eligible in-app as well as online purchases from 29 March 2018 to 30 June 2018 with your DBS/POSB cards to win either S$50 worth of coupon or cash! Registration is absolutely necessary and you will have to do it via the new DBS Lifestyle App - limited to the first 10,000 registrations only (but at the time of writing there is still plenty).
Fuzzie is one of those platforms in Singapore that have existed for a while now abut no one really talks about it. Even though this is not exactly a deal, I just found out that purchasing gift cards on Fuzzie allows me to double-dip (or even triple-dip!) on promotions and cashbacks. This post is really to get you that free S$5 off promo code on Grab so I shall not veer off topic (even though I am tempted to) - here's how you do it with my referral code.
I have written about Chope on multiple occasions but for those who do not know what it is, it is mainly a platform where you can discover restaurants, make reservations and score great deals (like earning Chope-Dollars which you can then redeem for free dining vouchers). If you do not have a Chope account, signing-up for one using my referral link will give you an additional 200 Chope-Dollars (on top of the 100 Chope-Dollars that you get on every reservation) on your first reservation. Make a reservation with one of the participating restaurants this month and earn up to 4X more Chope-Dollars!
For this long weekend only, hunt for easter eggs on the Mileslife platform to obtain five unique promo codes which you can use in the whole month of April 2018. The total number of bonus miles that you can get out of these five transactions are worth 3,400 miles and these are on top of what you would earn on your credit card as well as Mileslife!
The Citi Rewards Card runs a 20X Rewards promotion from time to time with selected partners and this time round, cardholders will be able to earn 20 points per S$1 (equivalent to 8 miles per dollar) on all eligible transactions made at Duty Free Singapore (DFS), Takashimaya and TANGS between 23 March and 03 May 2018.
The OCBC VOYAGE Card has introduced some changes at the start of the year and despite lowering the earn rate on dining expenses from 2.3 VOYAGE Miles (VMs) to 1.6 VMs per dollar, it is still a really good card to have since it gives you unlimited access to plaza premium lounges (+1 guest) and it also comes with a great VOYAGE Exchange concierge service that you can take advantage of. What caught my eye recently however was the ability to fly on Etihad Airways' First Class with the purchase of any Business Class return tickets to selected destinations - you will have to book between 01 March 2018 and 30 April 2018 for travel between now and 31 December 2018.
Planning to go to Australia, Middle East, Europe, Africa, or North and South America?
