Android Pay is finally here, after both Apple Pay and Samsung Pay took the first step in pushing Singapore’s contactless payments using smartphones.
Although late to the game, there are lots of merchants and banks waiting to roll out a flurry of promotions in welcoming the new payment convenience. Here are some of the handpicked deals we have consolidated for you.
DBS 25% Cashback
Add DBS or POSB cards to Android Pay on your smartphones and enjoy a generous 25% cashback on your first 5 transactions using the the new service from now till 30 September 2016.
Do note that the cashback is capped at $10 per customer and valid for the first 10,000 customers who made at least 1 valid Android Pay transaction. Business, Corporate and Purchasing Cards issued by DBS are not enabled.
McCafe $2 Off with $6 Purchase
Enjoy a $2 discount when you spend a minimum spending of $6 at McCafe using Android Pay. The offer is only available starting next Thursday, from 7 July to 3 August 2016.
The Android Pay payment terminals at McCafe are also open to Samsung Pay and Apple Pay but only McDonald’s Singapore have an official tie-up partnership with Android Pay.
OCBC 5% Rebate with Android Pay
Although OCBC only gives you 5% rebate when you use Android Pay as compared to a higher 25% with DBS/POSB, OCBC rebate cap is higher at $15.
If you have multiple bank credit cards, we suggest adding them all in Android Pay and then using the DBS/POSB ones first, followed by OCBC’s to enjoy all the rebates. According to OCBC terms and conditions here, the Android Pay rebates earned will be on top of existing rebates applicable to the relevant cards.
The OCBC Android Pay rebate is available from now till 31 July 2016. There also isn’t a limit to how many customers can get the rebate.
Android Pay will also be available on ride-sharing apps such as Grab and Uber, as well as ComfortDelGro soon. Google has also mentioned that they are working with LTA to allow commuters to pay for their fares using contactless credit or debit cards.Learn more from Android Pay
