The Best Christmas Log Cake Promotions in Singapore (2019)

log cake & christmas buffet promotion singapore

Here in Singapore, we celebrate any festival with conspicuous consumption. In the case of Christmas, our “tradition” is gifting extravagant log cakes to our loved ones, treasured clients, and any combination thereof.

But before you resign yourself to eating nothing but plain porridge with soya sauce by January, it’s worth checking if you can use your favourite credit card to save you some cash on those painfully expensive log cakes.

It may be only November, but many banks are already gearing up for the festive season with Christmas log cake promotions. Here are the best we found in Singapore right now.
