SingSaver has launched a new set of welcome offers for Standard Chartered credit cards, which run from now till 1 October 2023.
New-to-bank applicants can enjoy up to S$380 cash, or gadget gifts such as Dyson Supersonic hair dryers or Nintendo Switch OLED consoles. There’s also an extra S$20 cash for making a S$20 transaction with Shopee, Lazada, Qoo10, Netflix and other selected merchants, and on top of it all, SingSaver is also giving away 20 Dyson Airwraps each day to the first 10 applicants at 12 p.m and 3 p.m daily.
New-to-bank customers are defined as those who:
If you don’t have any Standard Chartered cards just yet, this would be a great opportunity to hop onboard.
Which Standard Chartered cards are eligible?
Applications for the following cards via any of the links in this article will be eligible for the offer.
|Card||Annual Fee||Welcome Gift|
|SCB Simply Cash Card|
|SCB Journey Card|
plus StanChart welcome offer of up to 35,000 bonus miles*
|SCB Smart Card|
|No annual fee|
|SCB Rewards+ Card|
|*An additional 10,000 miles can be earned for paying the first year’s annual fee, but I don’t feel it’s worth it. If you want to do so nonetheless, apply via this link instead|
All cards have a minimum income requirement of S$30,000 per year.
Applications must be received by 1 October 2023, and cards must be approved by 15 October 2023. Cardholders must activate their physical card in order to be eligible; activating the digital card alone is insufficient.
Win a Dyson Airwrap
If you plan to apply for a Standard Chartered credit card, you might want to time your application to coincide with SingSaver’s Dyson Airwrap giveaway.
From now till 1 October 2023, the first 10 customers to successfully apply for a Standard Chartered credit card at 12 p.m or 3 p.m daily will receive a Dyson Airwrap multi-styler (Complete) worth S$859, in addition to the gifts mentioned in the previous section.
If you’re outside the first 10, you’ll still receive the gifts mentioned in the previous section, so this isn’t an all or nothing kind of deal.
For more information on how SingSaver determines the fastest applicants for this offer, refer to this post.

Terms & Conditions
Get an extra S$20 cash
All new Standard Chartered cardholders who meet the respective minimum spend and charge at least S$20 with Shopee, Lazada, Taobao, ezbuy, Qoo10, Carousell or Netflix within 30 days of approval will receive an extra S$20 cash (disbursed by PayNow).
This isn’t a particularly difficult task to fulfil; you could even buy a Qoo10 gift card and be done with it.
If you don’t have a Standard Chartered card yet, here’s an opportunity to pick up some guaranteed additional gifts when you sign-up, plus a shot at a Dyson Airwrap each day till 1 October 2023.
Don’t forget to fill out the SingSaver redemption form that will be sent to your email with your application reference number.
If you have difficulty meeting the minimum spend, my standard approach is to just buy NTUC or Cold Storage vouchers- things that I’ll end up spending sooner or later.
