Clearing annual leave and racking your brains for ways to fill up all that free time? Completely understandable. There’s only so much Christmas shopping and eating you can do, after all, especially with the Omicron Covid-19 variant still at large.
Well, twiddle your thumbs no more, because mobile wallet app Singtel Dash has launched a new feature in-app — Dash Town, with quest-based challenges!
And because it’s the festive season, Dash Town participants can countdown to the 12 days of Christmas with 12 drops of prizes every. single. day. Just by shaking the snow globe on Dash Town (on the toilet, in the train, while lying on your bed), you can collect up to 1 million sure-win prizes! What’s not to love?
For this festive edition of Dash Town, we’re going to show you how to maximise your rewards and get the most number of free prizes. Think of this article as the Dash Town GameFAQs.
What is Dash Town?
Here’s what the all-new Dash Town looks like on the Singtel Dash app. Quite chio right?
Dash Town is a festive wonderland filled with games and prizes each time you play. Each day when you check in to Dash Town, you can shake the “snow globe” to win a prize (I just won 500 Dash reward points!) — and you can get more prizes just by completing the various missions.
On top of the sure-win prizes, Singtel Dash will add attractive gifts into the prize pool each day as we count down the 12 days of Christmas.
How do I get to Dash Town?
To get to Dash Town, you’ll need to first download the Singtel Dash app — or, if you already have it, update your app to the latest version.
Don’t have Singtel Dash yet? It’s super easy to sign up.
Simply download Singtel Dash from the App Store or Google Play, and follow the instructions to sign up for an account. You’ll need a valid Singapore-registered mobile number and an identification number (NRIC, FIN, Employment Pass, or Work Permit).
You don’t have to be a Singtel user; Singtel Dash is open to anyone on ANY telco! However, a note for the young ’uns: You need to be at least 14 years old to get an account. Sorry, kiddos.
Once you’re all set with your updated app and account, just go ahead and tap on that big banner on the home screen to get whisked away to Dash Town.
Here are 3 tips for making the most out of Dash Town.
Tip 1: Check-ins are key
The very first time you tap on the Dash Town banner on the app homepage and successfully check into Dash Town, you’ll receive 1 free play for a sure-win prize.
Want more tries? Then check in to Dash Town daily for at least 5 days by 4 January 2022 to get another chance to win a sure-win prize. In addition, look out for limited time only missions that allow you to earn additional free plays on Dash Town — that means MORE prizes!
The clock resets at midnight so if you’re a night owl, you’ll have no problem. Otherwise, be sure to set your alarm and check into Dash Town first thing in the morning. You snooze, you lose~
Tip 2: Use Dash for your everyday transactions
Singtel Dash is a mobile wallet that can be used for payments almost anywhere in Singapore. You can scan and pay with Singtel Dash anytime you see an SGQR code at a hawker centre, food court, supermarket, convenience store, and other retailers.
Alternatively, connect your Dash account to your mobile contactless payment app and tap to pay wherever Visa payWave is accepted. You’ll need a compatible iOS or NFC-enabled Android phone for this.
You can even use Dash to pay for online shopping. All you need to do is copy and paste your 16-digit Dash Visa Virtual Card number at checkout.
The best thing is, every time you use the Dash app to make payment on your everyday transactions, you can score more chances to play in Dash Town! Every transaction of at least $10 lets you earn another chance to shake the Dash Town snow globe. Some exclusions apply.
As December is the season of fea$ting, $hopping, and $plurging on presents for yourself and loved ones, we trust you’ll have no problem racking up chances to play and get sure-win prizes on Dash Town.
Tip 3: Give & you shall receive
Who says that the nice people finish last? If you’re sending cash gifts of love to your family and friends overseas, you can receive even more rewards on Dash Town.
Singtel Dash’s remit feature allows you to send money to your friends and family in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, India, Bangladesh, and China. It works with overseas bank accounts, selected mobile wallets, and even cash pick-up points.
You’ll need to register for the remittance service through the app by taking a selfie first, but after that, you’re on your way to sending cash to your loved ones through your phone at your convenience.
Every time you remit at least $200, you get a chance to play in Dash Town and win a sure-win prize. So go ahead and treat your overseas fam to something nice this year-end.
If you have a Singtel prepaid SIM card, you can top up your way to more chances to play. Each top-up of at least $20 on the Singtel hi! Prepaid SIM Card or $10 on the International Prepaid Card comes with another chance to win a sure-win prize on Dash Town.
‘Tis the season for giving and winning
As we count down the days to (yet another) Covid Christmas, it’s time to take the chance to reconnect with our loved ones and spend quality time together.
… But don’t forget to also check out Dash Town as there will be incredible gifts! In the 12 days leading up to Christmas, keep your eyes peeled for amazing prizes like:
- Dyson Super Sonic Dryer (worth $549)
