Just a few years back, the idea of an on-demand ride-hailing transport provider such as Grab seemed like a novel idea. But today, booking a car or taxi through the Grab app has become a big part of our everyday lives. It’s also made life way more convenient than having to suffer the waiting time of trying to flag down a cab to no avail.
To sweeten the deal, Grab even goes the extra mile to make riding with them feel more shiok – as a regular Grab user who grabs at least twice weekly, you’d be hard-pressed to find a week without some form of attractive promotion.
And it’s about to get even better…
You might have realised you get reward points for every Grab ride you take. Before we get to what reward points can get you (which is the exciting part) in a bit, did you know you could hyper-charge your points accrual? See, the more points you get, the more rewards you can redeem.
And it’s not just ride discounts that you can benefit from, you can also get shopping, dining and entertainment promotions with their GrabRewards programme. But more on that later. Firstly, here’s how it works:
This is the basic accrual rate for earning points, and here’s how you can speed things up:
Ok, that’s great. I’ve got tons of points. What can I use them on?
The GrabRewards programme is split into different tiers to reward frequent riders. The more you ride, the more points you get allowing you to move to a higher tier. Moving up the tiers means that you spend less points to redeem rewards, as you will see in the table below.
Here’s a summary of the membership tiers that allow you to redeem different benefits under the GrabRewards programme:
Note: Points to qualify are for every 6 months
As you can see in the table above, the GrabRewards programme doesn’t just allow you to redeem Ride Rewards but also allows you to enjoy benefits from their Partners rewards selection as well.
The flagship partners for Grab’s Partners rewards programme are KFC, Deliveroo and Spotify. Imagine being able to get a free Spotify Premium subscription for a whole month, or $10 off a Deliveroo order. Feeling hungry? You can get discounts off your purchase from KFC online.
Redemption is a simple process! Choose which promotion or discount you would like to redeem. Once you do, you will receive a unique code on the Grab app. Then, all you have to do is apply the code when making a purchase on the respective partner’s site.
Here’re some other rewards you can redeem on the GrabRewards programme:
|Zalora||20% off purchases|
|Cotton On||$5 off with no min. spend at all Cotton On outlets (including Typo and Rubi)|

Also, in case you didn’t know, you can earn points in other countries as well (Grab is available in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Myanmar), and redeem your points for discounts at local merchants in each respective country.
