Best 1-for-1 Hotel Buffet Dining Promotions in Singapore (2021)

Best-1-for-1-buffet_masthead

Nothing gets Singaporeans going like a hotel buffet, but they’re pretty expensive at full price. Thanks to competitive credit card promotions, though, you can get 1-for-1 hotel buffets with practically any card.

Always check the terms and conditions for credit card buffet promotions first. Typically you have to call to reserve, quote your bank name to secure the discount, and pay using that card. Usually both credit or debit cards are accepted as long as it’s from the partner bank.

This year, the number of 1-for-1 hotel buffets has gone down sharply, thanks to Covid-19 that’s STILL wreaking havoc in the F&B industry. Anyway, check out the list below for your next hotel buffet gathering with your foodie friends or family.

Remember to keep your group to a maximum of 8! And check if you’ve the right credit card to enjoy the promos.

Sign up for a preferred credit card from DBS/POSB, Citibank, UOB, OCBC, HSBC, and Maybank now.

Disclaimer: We referred to published prices to compile this list, stating all the caveats (e.g. valid only on certain days, timings, etc) we could find.

However, we are human. Please give the hotel/restaurant a call to confirm the prices and validity before heading down — just in case we missed anything, or if any terms and conditions have been amended since the time of writing.

In addition, some hotels may suspend their buffet lines due to Covid-19. So always call them ahead of time to avoid a wasted trip.

Is your favourite 1-for-1 buffet restaurant fully booked? Try The Entertainer, Eatigo, Chope & Fave

Aside from the promotional validity dates, many of these promotions are limited to a certain number of diners per day or promotional period. If for whatever reason you’re not able to get a seat, don’t panic — there are other dining apps to help you save on that buffet feast.

The Entertainer

The Entertainer is a paid subscription that focuses on 1-for-1 deals. As an added bonus, the partner merchants aren’t restricted to restaurants and cafes, so you can expect beauty, fashion and fitness deals as well. The subscription fee for Entertainer 2021 is on sale at $79 (U.P. $95). It’s still kind of steep, but it also includes Cheers, its sister app for bars and pubs.

Eatigo

Eatigo is an online restaurant reservation service that offers discounts based on what time you dine. Check out the full list of hotel buffet deals at their website.

Chope

Like Eatigo, Chope reservation service also offers exclusive discounts for their users. Check out the full selection of restaurants and partners for buffets and be spoilt for choice.

Fave

Fave may not have a dedicated 1-for-1 buffet section, but some restaurants offer up to 60% and up, which is an even better deal. Check out the current buffet promotions here.
