SingSaver May Madness: Apply for a Citibank credit card and get $500 cash

The first 15 applicants (new or existing) each day for five days get $500 cash; new-to-bank customers guaranteed at least $300 of vouchers

We’ve seen some pretty generous sign up gifts over the past couple of years, but this has to be one of the biggest ever.

SingSaver is running a May Madness promotion on Citibank credit cards from Tuesday 21 May 9 a.m. to Friday 24 May 11.59 p.m. The first 15 applicants (new-to-bank or existing) each day will get $500 cash upon approval.


From the 16th applicant onwards, new-to-bank applicants will receive $300 of Grab/Taka/NTUC vouchers upon approval, and existing applicants will receive $30 of Grab/Taka/NTUC vouchers upon approval.

First 15 applicants each day 16th onwards
New-to-bank $500 cash $300 vouchers
Existing $500 cash $30 vouchers

In other words, new-to-bank customers are guaranteed at least $300, 50% more than the usual SingSaver offer. You’re considered new-to-bank if you don’t hold a Citi principal credit card right now or in the past 12 months.

How to participate

Here’s the steps to participate:

  1. Apply for any eligible Citibank card
    • Citi Cash Back Card
    • Citi PremierMiles Visa
    • Citi Rewards Visa
    • Citi SMRT Platinum Visa
    • Citi Prestige
  2. Submit the rewards redemption form with a valid application reference number
  3. Receive approval by 24 Jun 2019 to be eligible

The FAQs and T&Cs are linked here. Please read them carefully because they address a lot of potential scenarios and questions.

Do note that the promotion runs from 9 a.m to 11.59 p.m each day. The application process starts from the time the applicant clicks the “Apply Now” button on the SingSaver campaign page.

If you apply outside the 9 a.m to 11.59 p.m timing, you won’t be eligible to win the $500 cash. In other words, don’t try and jump the gun by applying at 8.50 a.m and submitting the rewards form at 9 a.m sharp- SingSaver compare the rewards forms against the application data’s timestamp from Citibank to determine eligibility.


If you’re just looking at the $300 vouchers for new-to-bank customers, however, feel free to apply any time before 11.59 p.m on 24 May.

This promotion does not overlap with the ongoing Battle of the Cards campaign. If you’ve applied through Battle of the Cards, you can’t use that card as the basis for your rewards form submission. However, if you applied for a Citi Rewards card during Battle of the Cards, there’s nothing stopping you from applying for a different Citi card during the May Madness campaign.



Getting $500 cash for signing up for a card is as good as it gets (and would make a hefty dent in the Citi Prestige’s $535 annual fee). Set your alarm for 9 a.m each day and fill out those forms fast!

The problem with such offers is that one doesn’t know whether one is amongst the top 15 applicants or not. I mean what if I apply for Citi prestige at 9:05am in anticipation of getting $500, how would I know whether I will get $500 or not? Any idea?

How long do you have to keep the citibank card?


For signing citi rewards, does this overlap with the 27k bonus Thank you points for spending $3k?


I have this same question too

Interestingly US citizens do not qualify, even if they are a PR.
