Here’s some good news if you’re paying rent with CardUp.
CardUp has extended their 1.9% promotion on rental payments until 31 December 2020. This offer applies to all Singapore-issued Mastercard and Visa cards.
How does CardUp’s discounted rental fee work?
To use the offer, enter the promo code SAVERENT19 during the payment setup process. This is valid for one rental payment a month, set up on or before 31 December 2020 with a due date on or before 5 January 2021.
The full T&C of this promotion can be found here.
If this is your first payment with CardUp, you can get S$20 off the admin fee for your first payment of S$1,000 or more with the promo code MILELION. You can subsequently schedule the rest of your payments with the SAVERENT19 code as well.
|🏠 Do note that RentHero is offering a 1.75% promotion on rental payments too. However, you can only earn points on RentHero with DBS, Maybank and HSBC (until 1 July) cards|
