1-for-1 and 50% off Dining Deals that are finally not Hotel Buffets

Are you tired of seeing articles with titles boasting of great 1-for-1 dining promotions only to find out that half of them are hotel buffets? Well, we are too. While 1-for-1 hotel buffets deals are great and really worth the value, having a hotel buffet for dinner every other night would be too demanding on our waistline!

Here’s a list of amazing 1-for-1 dining promotions, or those that give great discounts for various credit cards: AMEX, UOB, DBS, StanChart, OCBC, Maybank and more!

Editor’s note, 29 December 2017: Happy New Year! We’ll be keeping this blog post updated with new promotions along the way as we move into 2018 so do stay tuned. While some of them are expired at the moment, we’ll get them updated the moment fresh promotions from the bank are out!
