Citibank Shopee Promotions

Get S$200 Cash via PayNow

Citi Rewards Card

  • on Online Spend*

  • on Shopping Spend

  • on All Other Spend

MoneySmart Exclusive: Get up to S$300 Cash or Grab Credits! Applies to new to bank customers.

Right now, Citibank comes up tops in terms of Shopee tie-ups and promotions.

Shopee has an exclusive "Citi Sundays" deal where, if you check out with a Citi credit card on Sundays, you get S$10 off sitewide with a minimum spend of S$80. That's more than 12% off. The promotion ends on 29 Mar 2020.

On top of that, those who use the Citi Rewards Card can also get 10X rewards points (equivalent to 4 miles per S$1 spent!) on all online shopping, including, of course, Shopee. That benefit extends to other online services such as Grab and food delivery, but excludes travel.

There is no minimum spend on this credit card, but note that bonus points are capped at S$1,000 of online spending a month.

  • Cash Back at Selected Grocery Stores

  • Cash Back Cap per year

  • Min. Spend per month

If you prefer a simple-to-use cashback credit card rather than earn rewards points, the Citibank SMRT Card is a worthy contender for your online shopping purchases as well.

Although its cash rebate on online shopping is not very high, there is effectively no minimum spending requirement. Spend less than S$300 a month, and your rebate is 2.7%; spend more than S$300 and you get the full rebate of 3%. Either way, it's decent.

The Citibank SMRT Card is also eligible for Shopee's Citi Sundays deal, so you also get that S$10 off on top of the card rebates.

UOB Shopee Promotions

  • on Online Shopping, Entertainment & Contactless Payments

  • on All Other Spend

  • Rewards to Miles Conversion

UOB has a number of credit cards that are perfect for avid online shoppers, but one of the most versatile ones is the underrated UOB Preferred Platinum Visa Card.

It gives you 10X rewards (20 miles per S$5 spent) for online shopping as well as offline contactless payments, capped at S$1,000 a month.

UOB also offers all its customers some great Shopee promo codes.

For new shoppers, key in UOBNEW7 to get S$7 off with min. S$15 spend. For existing customers, use UOBTEN4 to get 10% off with no min. spend, capped at S$4. The promotion is valid until 31 Dec 2020.

HSBC Shopee Promotions

  • on Online, Dining and Entertainment

  • on All Other Spend

  • Rewards to Miles Conversion for Selected Airline Partners

MoneySmart Exclusive: Get a Samsonite Prestige 69cm Spinner Exp (worth S$670) OR S$150 Cash Back with min. spend of $800 in first month of card approval + S$20 worth of Grab rides!

HSBC's rewards credit card gives you 5X rewards points (i.e. 2 miles per S$1 spent) on online shopping as well as practically all forms of online spending.

While this rate is not quite as competitive as some of the other online shopping cards on this list, there is no cap on the points earned, so it is suitable for those occasional big-ticket online purchases.

If you are new to Shopee, you can get S$7 off storewide with a minimum purchase of S$15 with an HSBC credit card. Enter the promo code HSBC7NEW upon checkout. This promotion is valid until 31 Dec 2020.

DBS Shopee Promotions

Get AirPods or S$200 cashback when you apply online and spend!

DBS Live Fresh Card

  • Cashback on Online, Visa Contactless

  • Cash Back Cap per month

  • Min. Spend per month

MoneySmart Exclusive: Get AirPods or S$200 cashback when you apply online and spend!

Online Promo: Get double cashback with DBS Live Fresh Card

One of the most versatile cashback credit cards around, the DBS Live Fresh Card is an excellent choice for those who spend quite modestly on online shopping.

As long as you hit the minimum spending requirement of S$600 a month, you can get 5% rebate on online shopping, as well as offline contactless spending.

The cashback is capped at S$20 for each category, though, so effectively good for up to S$400 spending online only.

DBS Woman's World Card

  • on Online Spend

  • on All Other Spend

  • Rewards to Miles Conversion

MoneySmart Exclusive: Get AirPods or S$200 cashback when you apply online and spend!

Another excellent online shopping credit card from DBS is the DBS Woman's World Card. However, it is not as attainable as it has a minimum salary requirement of S$80,000 p.a. (It is, however, open to men and women.)

If you do qualify for this credit card, it gives you a respectable 10X points, or 4 miles per S$1, on online spending including Shopee.

Otherwise, consider the more junior version of this credit card, the DBS Woman's Card, which gives you 5X points or 2 miles per S$1 spent online. This one has the regular income requirement of S$30,000 p.a.

OCBC Shopee Promotions

  • on Online, Offline, Local and Overseas spend

  • with 18,000 OCBC$

  • Rewards to Miles Conversion

This powerful OCBC rewards card offers generous 10X rewards (4 miles per S$1 spent) on major online retailers, including Shopee but also the likes of Amazon, Lazada, Qoo10, Taobao and more.

The same benefit extends to offline shopping for electronics, kidswear and department stores. It's certainly a useful credit card to have if you are renovating or having a baby as these big purchases will add up.

In addition, the 10X rewards are capped at S$12,000 a year, so you need not worry about bursting a small monthly cap.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a Shopee voucher?

To get a Shopee voucher, open your Shopee app or the website and log in first. On the home page, you should see an icon for "Daily Vouchers", which is where you can find sitewide and store-specific vouchers. For credit card vouchers, go to "Partner Promotions" where you can check out what bank promotions are going on.

What is Shopee cashback?

Apart from whatever cashback you can get with your online shopping credit card, Shopee also sometimes has a "cash back" promotion on selected items. When you purchase an eligible item, you can get a percentage of it as a rebate in Shopee credits or Shopee coins. Of course, this is not really cash. You can only use them up in your next Shopee purchase.

Does Shopee offer free shipping?

Not all items on Shopee ship for free. Some sellers may choose to offer free shipping on selected items, or if you hit a minimum spend from their store. Others will charge a flat shipping fee no matter what. If you absolutely refuse to pay for shipping, check out Shopee Mall, which is where the bigger brands have their online stores. Supposedly, items on Shopee Mall ship for free, and come with a 15-day return policy.
