It’s not just Western countries that have Christmas traditions. Here in Singapore, the festive season is all about conspicuous consumption, from buying extravagant gifts for your dog at Takashimaya to eating delicacies like gold dust-covered truffles at Christmas buffets.

Before you reserve that Christmas buffet lunch for your colleagues or bookmark that yummy-looking log cake on Qoo10, it’s worth pausing for a moment to check if you can use your favourite credit card to save you some cash.

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

UOB log cake & Christmas buffet promotions 2018

UOB may love to tickle us with their hyperbolic ad campaigns, but luckily they seem to be doing their job in terms of helping their customers snag some sweet, sweet Christmas buffet promotions and log cake discounts.

(Note that the log cake discounts also apply to any other Christmassy treats you might want to take away from the counter, such as gingerbread men and the like.)

DBS/POSB log cake & Christmas buffet promotions 2018

Everyone’s favourite bank DBS/POSB has launched a “Christmas” tab on their credit card promotions page, but either they have not gotten their act together yet, or the deals are disappointingly pathetic. Hopefully it’s the former.

For now, here are some of the hotel buffets and cake shops with DBS/POSB card promotions, that I thought would be quite suitable for Christmas. Do call in to just to confirm if the deal is still valid for the date you want to come down.

Amara Hotel 1-for-1 Element buffet dinner Until 30 Dec 2018

OCBC log cake & Christmas buffet promotions 2018

Like DBS/POSB, the slackers at OCBC don’t have much by way of Christmassy stuff on their credit card promotions page, so you might want to check back later in the month.

For now, here are some of the better buffet and dining deals that OCBC offers at the moment. The T&Cs do not explicitly exclude Christmas menus or the festive period, but again, best to call and check before you all troop down and get disappointed.

Standard Chartered MBS buffet & dining promotions 2018

Standard Chartered credit cards doesn’t have any Christmas-specific credit card promotions going on just yet, but I thought I would highlight their 2 current dining promotions which are both excellent.

One is a tie-up with Fullerton Hotel and Fullerton Bay Hotel where you can get up to 50% off your food bill, depending on how many people you go with. For the maximum discount, go in a group of 2 pax. The promo doesn’t explicitly exclude festive menus but I’d call up to ask, just in case. Listed below are the buffet deals, but they also apply to a la carte orders.

The other is the Standard Chartered x Marina Bay Sands promotion which comprises 3 types of promotions: 4th diner dines free at lunch, 20% off total bill from 3pm to 6pm and $25 return voucher with minimum spend of $250. I’ve listed just the one buffet lunch here because everyone loves to pig out, but the promotions are also valid at quite a number of MBS restaurants like db Bistro & Oyster Bar, Bread Street Kitchen and Cut.

Hotel / restaurant Christmas dining promotion 2018 Validity
Fullerton Hotel (The Courtyard) Up to 50% off high tea buffet & chocolate buffet 31 Mar 2019
Fullerton Hotel (Town Restaurant) Up to 50% off buffet lunch & dinner 31 Mar 2019
Marina Bay Sands 4th diner dines free for Rise buffet lunch 30 Sep 2019

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.
