Ah, promo codes. They’re just like that one colleague everybody has – always hovering around and taking up space when you don’t need them, only to vanish the moment they’re needed. SO annoying.

But you don’t have to refresh your inbox and scrape the internet for coupons, because most credit cards in Singapore already offer discount codes with popular online retailers. You can save up to 20% on sites like Lazada, Shopee and Zalora with the right credit card promo code.

Here’s a handy table to summarise which cards you can use for the best discounts on each site:

Website Best card to use Promotion
Qoo10 Citibank, Standard Chartered Mastercards Get $10 in coupons every Wed (Mastercard) + additional Shopback rebate (Citi/SCB)
Lazada Citibank Up to 20% off + 11% Shopback rebate + 8% LiveUp rebate
Shopee Citibank Up to $7 off + additional Shopback rebate
Zalora American Express, UOB Lady’s Card 20% + $5 off (Amex) OR 23% off (UOB Lady’s Card)
Amazon Citibank $10 off for Amazon Prime Now members
ASOS CitibankStandard Chartered  Additional Shopback rebate
Book Depository CitibankStandard Chartered  Additional Shopback rebate
iHerb UOB 10% off (min. spend US$100) + 5% loyalty credit
Aliexpress Standard Chartered Additional 5% on Wed with Shopback
EZbuy HSBC $15 off or $10 coupon
SGshop Maybank 10% to 15% discount

Credit card Promo code Discount Expiry
All Mastercard Get $10 in coupons every Wed 31 Dec 2018
Standard Chartered Additional 5% cashback every Wed via www.shopback.sg/sc-promo 27 Jun 2018
Citibank Up to 2% via www.shopback.sg/citi-special + $10 cashback for new Shopback users 31 Dec 2018

Qoo10 is a black hole of bust enhancement products and random electronic appliances. If that’s your thing, Qoo10 has a longtime tie-up with Mastercard that lets you get $10 in coupons every Wednesday from 10am (get in early as there’s a limited number of redemptions weekly). Just check out your shopping cart with any Mastercard, and you can redeem the coupons straight away.

Note that it’s not a straight $10 off. Instead, you get a $2 coupon (min. spend $10) + a $3 coupon (min. spend $15) + $5 coupon (min. spend $35).

It’s even better if you use a Citi or Standard Chartered Mastercard, as these 2 banks work with Shopback to give you get additional cashback on your Qoo10 haul.

Almost every bank in Singapore has a tie-up with Lazada, so you’ll never have to pay full price on Lazada again! Typically it’s a 20% discount for your first Lazada purchase and a bit less for your subsequent ones. Note that some of these are limited to in-app purchases only, and, as always, redemptions are limited.

The best bank card to use for Lazada is probably Citibank’s as they have tie-ups that you can stack for maximum effect. Combine the Citi promo code with additional Shopback rebate, and sign up for LiveUp membership (it’s free for 2 months) to get the most out of your Citi card.

Winner: Citibank

Just like Lazada, Shopee works with almost every bank to offer promo codes for new and existing shoppers. The discounts are about the same across each bank.

Again, Citibank appears best for Shopee as they have a Shopback rebate on top of the promo codes. BUT, you can obviously sign up for Shopback with any other credit card to enjoy the same discounts.

Winner: Citibank (just barely)

There are simply heaps and heaps of promo codes for online fashion retailer Zalora. Again, promotions are very similar so it’s not easy to say which card is best exactly. I’d say it’s a tie between Amex and UOB Lady’s Card for the top spot, with Standard Chartered following closely behind.

If you’re planning to buy $150 of items from Zalora, use either any American Express credit card or the UOB Lady’s Card for 23% off your order. For a minimum order of $120, Standard Chartered is a good choice as it gives you 20% off plus additional Shopback rebate on Wednesday. But of course, you can sign up for Shopback with any other credit card.

Winner: American Express, UOB Lady’s Card

Amazon promo codes & discounts 2018

Citibank CITI $10 off (min. spend $80) for existing Amazon Prime Now customers 31 May 2018

Not a lot of banks offer Amazon promo codes, surprisingly. To get discounts, sign up for Amazon Prime Now which gives you free delivery (min. order $40 for local items and $60 for international items), plus access to Amazon’s streaming movies and TV shows and a Twitch subscription.

Amazon works exclusively (to my knowledge) with Citibank to promote Prime Now membership in Singapore, and you can get a pretty sweet discount of $10 no matter what. Promo expires 31 May though, so hurry.

Winner: Citibank

Citibank Up to 3.5% via www.shopback.sg/citi-special + $10 cashback for new Shopback users 31 Dec 2018

British fashion retailer ASOS is super popular here but unfortunately there aren’t any bank credit card promo codes to use. You’ll have to sign up for the ASOS newsletter to get a promo code. Then stack your discount with a Shopback rebate by using either a Standard Chartered or Citibank card, or just signing up for Shopback on your own.

Bookworms in Singapore should know about Book Depository, a website to get books and stationery for way, way cheaper than in retail stores like Kinokuniya. Make sure you sign up for the Book Depository newsletter as they sometimes randomly dispense promo codes. You can make your purchase with a Standard Chartered or Citibank credit card to get additional cashback on Shopback, or simply sign up for Shopback on your own.

I love iHerb. It’s is a treasure trove of health food, supplements, healthy snacks and toiletries. Prices are always cheap on iHerb, but you can get an extra 10% off with UOB cards, plus 5% loyalty credit (which sticks in your iHerb account and can give you a discount off your next purchase). The minimum spend is US$100 so it makes sense to joint order with family and friends.

Winner: UOB

There isn’t a promo code for Chinese website Aliexpress (similar to Taobao), which is a shame, but Standard Chartered works with Shopback to give you extra 5% cashback if you shop on Wednesdays.

EZbuy coupons & promo codes 2018

HSBC $10 EZbuy voucher for first purchase 30 Jun 2018
Dash $5 cashback on first purchase 30 Jun 2018

Overseas shopping agent EZbuy has somewhat fallen from grace since it was blacklisted by Taobao late last year. However, it still stocks items from other Chinese and US websites including Amazon. If you plan to shop  on EZbuy, use an HSBC credit card to get $15 off plus a $10 voucher for each purchase.

Winner: HSBC

SGshop promo codes & discounts 2018

Credit card Promo code Discount Expiry

Maybank MB + first 6 digits of Maybank card (e.g. MB123456) 10% off USA ShipForMe international shipping for first shipment 31 Dec 2018

Taobao agent SGshop has grown in popularity among Taobao fans since the demise of EZbuy. However, it’s really expensive as the agent and delivery fees do add up. Offset part of these costs by using a Maybank card for exclusive discounts on SGshop.

Winner: Maybank

I used to be MoneyDumb. I hung out at H&M every day and thought that a $50 lunch set was a good deal. These days, I spend my time researching the crap out of life and trying to maximise utility on micro-decisions. I'm not sure if that's an improvement.
