Standard Chartered August sign-up offer: S$300 cash or Dyson Tower Fan

Last Updated:

Till 5 September 2021, get S$300 cash or a Dyson Tower Fan with a new Standard Chartered Credit Card, for new-to-bank customers.

Standard Chartered has brought back its largest-ever offer for new customers applying via SingSaver.

From 18 August to 5 September 2021, all new-to-bank customers approved for selected Standard Chartered credit cards will receive a Dyson AM07 Tower Fan (worth S$499) or S$300 cash. Existing cardholders will receive S$30 cash.

New-to-bank customers are defined as those who do not currently hold a principal Standard Chartered credit card, and have not done so in the 12 months prior. Existing cardholders must not have applied for the same card within the last 12 months.

Which Standard Chartered cards are eligible?

The following Standard Chartered credit cards are eligible for this offer:

Up to 2.9 mpd on FCY spend (capped at S$2.2K per year)*

Your application must be received by 11.59 p.m on 5 September 2021 and approved by 14 September 2021 to be eligible. 

Application Steps

  1. Apply through any of the links in this article
  2. You will be directed to a SingSaver landing page. Enter your email address and click “confirm”
  3. Complete your application and take a screenshot of the Application Reference Number (for Standard Chartered, it’s in the format SGYYYYMMDDxxxxxx)
  4. Fill in the SingSaver rewards form that will be sent to your email. It’s vital you fill in the form– no form, no reward. 

You’ll be able to indicate your choice of gift in the rewards form if applicable.

Qualifying Spend

The physical card must be activated and a minimum qualifying spend of S$300 made within the first 30 days of approval (or 30 September 2021, whichever comes first).

In a newly-added requirement, qualifying spend must include at least one transaction (of any amount) at any of the following merchants:

  • Taobao
  • ezbuy
  • Shopee
  • Lazada
  • Qoo10
  • Carousell
  • Netflix
  • Disney+
  • VIU SG
  • Spotify
  • HBO Go
  • iQiyi SG

It’s an interesting new rule, though not that difficult to meet. The T&Cs further note that you must add your new credit card as the card on-file with one of the above merchants- basically saving it to your account for future payments. 

Qualifying spend also excludes the following:

  • any Equal Payment Plan (EPP) purchases,
  • refunded/ disputed/ unauthorised/ fraudulent retail purchases,
  • Quick Cash and other instalment loans,
  • bill payments made using the Eligible Card as a source of funds,
  • late payment fees
  • any other form of service/ miscellaneous fees
  • 6051 (Non-Financial Institutions – Foreign Currency, Non-Fiat Currency (for example: Cryptocurrency), Money Orders (Not Money Transfer), Account Funding (not Stored Value Load), Travelers Cheques, and Debt Repayment)

  • 7523 (Parking Lots, Parking Meters and Garages)
  • 7349 (Cleaning, Maintenance and Janitorial Services)
  • Any other charge, fee, transaction or payment as Standard Chartered Bank may stipulate from time to time

Gift Fulfillment

All gifts will be fulfilled within 4 months of approval. You will not receive your gift immediately upon meeting the minimum spend- the reason for the delay is the need to confirm eligibility with the bank. Please take note of this timeline before applying, and only apply if you’re willing to wait. 

For those who want to track the fulfillment of their reward, SingSaver provides estimated fulfillment timelines for Citibank and Standard Chartered cards on its website. 

Any enquiries about gift fulfillment should be sent to [email protected]

Hi, you say that, “ Existing cardholders must not have applied for the same card within the last 12 months.” Does this mean that existing SCB card holders are eligible for this offer as long as they haven’t applied for these 2 specific cards in the past 12months?


hi Aaron – could you please clarify if the qualifying spend of $300 has to be in one transaction or if it can be over multiple transactions?
sorry, just making sure I cover the bases. thank you!
