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!
