I’m a project engineer and we do late nights sometimes!
While I’m not a cab guy (Public Transport is a no-brainer here!) (If you’re childless) (And don’t work in Jurong Island), the chains of late nights have a glorious hidden benefit – racking up them Grab Rewards perks. (Not sponsored, chill.)
I’ll get right to it: I sheeted all rewards I could see on my app, added their equivalent value and calculated the points/SGD for each one.
What the points/SGD column means: Lower is better. It means you can use up fewer points to get back a dollar.
The categories listed on the app are Entertainment, F&B, Grab, Limited Edition, Services, Travel and Shopping. Here goes:
So which one is the ‘most‘ worth it?
To find this, look for the lowest points/SGD item in each table. This means that you are getting the most SGD you can get from each point used.
The overall lowest points/SGD here (i.e. best deal!) is the yogofi 20% off monthly wifi voucher at 7.8 points spent per SGD.
In second place is the 80% discount of PHS Hair Science’s scalp treatment service, at 21.1 points spent for each SDS redeemed.
In third is the $30 voucher for Earnest & Collective for men’s shoes. Again, quite a niche audience, but a very worthy 133.3 points per SGD redeemed!
Important note: There’s no clear ‘best’, really, because of the “% off”-type rewards you can redeem.
Technically, if you redeem a %-off-type voucher, the amount of SGD you save is endless because it scales with the total amount spent. Also, with rewards like Yogofi’s unlimited monthly wifi, I maxed out the value by putting in the most expensive daily plan ($12.90/day for Middle East, Egypt, Reunion, South Africa), so your mileage may vary!
Did I miss anything? How can I improve this next time? Let me know what you think (comments section below). Cheers!
