Shopee Promo Codes & Credit Card Discounts in Singapore (2020)

shopee promo code singapore

Be it Shopee or anywhere else, as long as it’s an online shopping platform, you had better first Google for promo codes. If you can’t find any, then boycott them — they don’t deserve your business! Competition is stiff in the e-commerce arena, so you’ll probably be able to find the same item elsewhere, but with a discount code to use.

I’ll be honest, I had only ever used Shopee once… and it was in 2015 when they first launched with a welcome promo code I couldn’t ignore. The brand has since gone regional — they’re all over Southeast Asia and in Taiwan — and although they don’t seem as aggressive as sites like Zalora and Lazada, they’ve got some pretty solid tie-ups with the banks.

So not only are Shopee’s listed prices lower (than the offline stores) to begin with, you can also further stretch your dollar by using the right Shopee credit card promo. BAM! That’s a wombo combo right there.

Let’s get right to it then.

Shopee July 2020: 7.7 GSS Final Sale promo codes

Shopee’s Great Shopee Sale (GSS) is coming to an end and they’ve just dropped a new bunch of promo codes! So if you haven’t bought all that you’ve wanted to, here’s your chance to score some savings with these promo codes.

Bank Promo code Discount Validity
DBS DBS12 $12 off min spend $100 7 July
Citibank CITI18 $18 off min spend $100 7 July
Citibank CITI25 $25 off min spend $150 7 July
HSBC HSBC18 $18 off min spend $150 7 July
Singtel Dash DASH7 $7 off min spend $77 7 July
Standard Chartered SC25 $25 off min spend $150 7 July

The codes can all be used by new and existing users and only each code can only be used once per Shopee account.

Shopee credit card promo codes for new users — $7 0ff

In general, there are two tiers of discounts — one for new users, and one for existing shoppers — and the Shopee discounts are pretty much standard across the banks.

Bank Promo code Discount Validity
Citibank CITINEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
UOB UOBNEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
HSBC HSBC7NEW $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
Maybank MBNEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
CIMB CIMBNEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
DBS DBSNEW15 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
Standard Chartered SCNEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020
Singtel Dash DASHNEW7 $7 off min spend $15 31 Dec 2020

No matter which credit card you have, you get $7 off a minimum spend of $15. That may sound too attractive, but if you swee swee spend $15, then that’s actually almost 50% off, which is much better. Each promo code is valid for one-time use only.

If you’re a seasoned online-shopper, you might try to game the system by trying different emails and credit cards, but sorry — for Shopee, your account is tied to your mobile number.

So even if you have cards from all 7 banks, you can only be a “new user” once. So pick wisely, and choose your best online shopping credit card (see below).

 

Shopee credit card promo codes for existing users – up to 10% off (capped at $4)

Bank Promo code Discount Validity
Citibank CITI5 $5 off min spend $60 20 Jun 2020
Citibank CITITEN4 10% off (capped at $4) 31 Dec 2020
UOB UOBTEN4 10% off (capped at $4) 31 Dec 2020
DBS DBSTEN4 10% off (capped at $4) 31 Dec 2020

After you’ve used the above promo codes, you’re officially in the next tier of “existing users”.

Sadly, the number of banks offering discounts for existing users has dropped significantly from last year and you only get a maximum of 10% off, capped at $4. However, unlike the new-user codes, these codes can be used multiple times, limited to 1 redemption per month.

Citibank cardholders have an extra chance to make use of a promo code for $5 off, for a limited time.

Most of the other Shopee promo codes above are valid until year end, so you still can make use of them each month.

 

Bank of the day Shopee credit card promotions – no promo code needed

If you’re a hardcore Shopee fan, and have already used up all the above codes, then you have to take advantage of Shopee’s “Bank of the Day” campaign.

Bank Day of the week Discount Validity
Singtel Dash Monday $5 off min spend $60 29 Jun 2020
Standard Chartered Tuesday $6 off min spend $60 30 Jun 2020
DBS Thursday $10 off min spend $100 31 Dec 2020
HSBC Friday $10 off min spend $80 31 Jul 2020
Citibank Sunday $10 off min spend $80 28 Mar 2021

Basically there’s a featured bank for every day of the week except Wednesday and Saturday.

For these promotions, the minimum spend is at least $60. If that’s right about how much you’re willing to spend, the highest discount you can get is $6 — on Tuesday, using a Standard Chartered credit card. That’s 10% off.

If you’re spending more (above $80), then shop on Sunday and Friday. Using HSBC or Citibank cards, you can get $10 off a min spend $80, which equates to up to 12.5% off, instead of on other days.

There are limited redemptions per day, so if you’re eyeing something and you want to make use of the discount, you’d best add stuff to your cart beforehand and checkout past midnight on the day of the promotion.

 

Daily GSS Shopee vouchers – refreshes daily

Shopee also has seasonal discounts from time to time, and you can check them on the Shopee voucher page here.

New promo codes are released at midnight daily, so you can just check the page before you check out – you know, just in case there’s a better flash sale promo code to use.

There are sitewide vouchers which can be used for any merchant on Shopee, as well as merchant-specific vouchers given by different brands. I took a quick look at today’s discounts, and found that most of them are effectively about 5% to 10% off, with either a min spend criteria or a discount cap.

There’s also a special cashback promotion going on, but it’s not really “cash back” per se. You get your “cash” rebates in Shopee coins, for use on your next purchase.

 

Bonus: Best credit cards for shopping on Shopee

So… What happens if you’re not a new user and have exhausted all the “existing user” promo codes? Well, if you’re that hardcore of a Shopee fan, you best be getting an online shopping credit card.

Just short of a direct discount, cash rebates (or air miles, if you’re a miles chaser) are the next best thing. Here are a few recommended credit cards for online shopping in general:
