The Platinum Card from American Express is my favourite credit card (well, it is technically a charge card) at the moment and it comes with benefits that range from annual travel credits to unlimited airport lounge access. One of the lesser-known benefit that Platinum members get to enjoy is complimentary weekend parking at VivoCity. From 02 August 2019, Platinum members will no longer enjoy this benefit at VivoCity and they will be able to receive a complimentary full-day parking coupon for parking at Great World City on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays instead.
Parking at Great World City can be quite costly on weekdays and having a complimentary full-day parking coupon on Friday is great for those working in the area. Weekend parking at this shopping mall is typically capped at S$6 + GST but with the newly opened MEIDI-YA Supermarket, there is plenty of reason to check out this place. The Platinum Card from American Express may come with a staggering S$1,712 annual fee which seems like a lot at first glance but the benefits truly exceed this 'cost'. If you would like to sign-up for the card, using my unique referral link for The Platinum Card will give you an additional 40,000 Membership Rewards (MR) points which you can then convert into 25,000 Miles. This is on top of the 75,000 MR points bonus that you will get if you spend S$20,000 in the first 3 months of card membership.

The signature dining establishment at The St. Regis Singapore, Brasserie Les Saveurs, has just unveiled a brand new lunch experience for Saturdays (12:00PM to 2:30PM).

The American Express Chillax Program needs no introduction - Platinum (including credit card) members get to enjoy 1-for-1 drinks at some of the best bars and restaurants in Singapore.

Today, Amrith by The Song of India has joined the ranks of the other merchants to offer a similar benefit.
