It’s a Chinese tradition to have everything new, including notes in the wallet and red packets to give away during Chinese New Year.

Returning again this year, customers will be able to withdraw CNY new notes in sums of SGD 100 (SGD 2 x 50), SGD 300 (SGD 10 x 30) and SGD 500 (SGD 50 x 10) from any of the 27 Community Clubs islandwide. A total of 36 pop-up ATMs will be available at the locations, up from 22 in 2017.

The bank will also make available for the first time, the option to withdraw cash in sums of SGD 200 (SGD 2 x 100), SGD 300 (SGD 2 x 50 + SGD 10 x 20) and SGD 500 (SGD 10 x 20 + SGD 50 x 6), reducing the need for multiple transactions.

The pop-up ATMs, available from 29 January to 14 February, will operate 24 hours except for Chong Pang Community Club which will only open from 9am to 10pm daily during the period.

Online Reservation for CNY Notes

Customers will also be able to make a reservation online for new CNY notes this year. From 29 January onwards, customers can visit or to reserve their CNY new notes.

Upon successful reservation, customers can collect their new and good-as-new notes on their preferred dates and timings at all full-service branches.

DBS and POSB Red Packets

Customers withdrawing for new CNY notes at the pop-up ATMs will also be given specially designed red packets.

The POSB red packets feature beloved mascot Smiley attired in an adorable onesie, with “pop-out’ fluffy ears when the envelope is closed.

Inspired by the ‘animoji’ trend, DBS’ mascots Xing and Jaan are now supersized, super cute, and super chic for 2018. Each mascot comes in two designs – with/without spectacles/sunglasses – so customers can customise their gifting. Made from paper sourced from sustainably-managed forests, each packet is wrapped with the DBS “Spark” overlay in gold to evoke the festive spirit.

DBS and POSB are offering a slew of exclusive deals for customers this festive season. For instance, customers stand a chance to receive SGD 88 cashback when they register and spend SGD 1,888 from 29 January – 5 March using their DBS/POSB cards*.
