In December last year I wrote about ShopBack GO, ShopBack’s offline cashback platform. It’s basically a way to rack up some free money every time you dine at 800+ restaurants- simply link your Visa/Mastercard to the app and use your card as per normal at the merchant. You’ll see your cashback tracked in the ShopBack app shortly after.
Unlike the beta version, you no longer need to manually “activate” a merchant in the app before you can earn cashback as the process is now fully automated. However, there may be some merchants which award boosted cashback for your first visit. This does require manual activation, so it doesn’t hurt to double check.
ShopBack GO Super Season
ShopBack GO has just launched Super Season, a 3-month long dining promotion with more than 100 1-for-1 offers, exclusive deals and up to 20% cashback, on top of the regular cashback on offer.
UOB cardholders can enjoy a bonus of $20 each month of Super Season. To unlock the bonus for October (November/December’s mechanic has not yet been announced), they’ll need to dine at six different ShopBack GO partner restaurants and spend a minimum of $20 each time on their card. They’ll also earn an extra $3 if the first card they link to ShopBack GO is a UOB card.
|Dining at different branches of the same chain counts as two qualifying transactions, e.g paying at Maki-San at Junction 8 and Orchard|
In case you needed a refresher on what cards to use for dining:
|UOB Preferred Platinum Visa||4.0||Only where Paywave is accepted, capped at S$1,110 per month|
|UOB Lady’s Card||4.0||Select dining as your quarterly 10X category, capped at S$1,000 per month|
|UOB Lady’s Solitaire Card||4.0||Select dining as your quarterly 10X category, capped at S$3,000 per month|
|Maybank Horizon Visa Signature||3.2||Min spend S$300 per month, capped at S$4,285 per month|
|KrisFlyer UOB Credit Card||3.0||Min S$500 spend on SIA-group transactions per membership year. 1.2 mpd received upfront, 1.8 mpd received 2 months after membership year|
Remember, only Visa or Mastercard cards can be linked with ShopBack GO, so you can’t use the UOB Preferred Platinum AMEX even if you have it. It makes no difference whether you pay with the physical card, or with the same card loaded on a mobile wallet like Google or Apple Pay.
1 for 1 deals, special offers and loyalty rewards
In the ShopBack GO app you’ll find many Super Season 1 for 1 deals, special offers and loyalty rewards. Highlights include:
There are also offers for solo diners, like $9.90 for a 9-inch pizza at Peperoni Pizzeria and half a dozen house oysters with any purchase at Greenwood Fish Market. To enjoy these deals, you’ll need to present the voucher to staff at the time of ordering. All vouchers are limited to one redemption per customer.
These offers can’t be stacked with other promotions (e.g. Entertainer, Eatigo), but you’ll still earn the miles on your credit card as per normal.
It costs you nothing to link your credit cards to ShopBack GO, so even if you’re not intending to actively follow this promotion, taking five minutes to get it done can lead to some surprise cashback down the line.
