I know this can be rather complicated. It took me a while to find out what is this Simply Go ezl concept. It has come to us that we can already use Mastercard and Visa card to tap in and use it for our public transport these days. Here, I think Ezlink is plugging a gap for those without credit cards. (Though I don’t quite see how that is possible to plug the gap when you also aim to use the credit card to top up the ezlink card.)
Nonetheless, with CNY round the corner. EZ Link launched their conversation from a normal EZ Link Card via their Station Machines also known as the Ticketing Machines. It takes about one minute to convert the ezlink card to a “Simply Go” one so that one can top up online instead of queuing up physically. With this upgrade, there is a free $2 added to the card and with ever transport use, you get a scratch card which gives you a cashback amount into your converted Simply Go EZ Link Card. Easy to understand now?
If you have some time to spend and use the public transport a little here and there then please do use my referral code “4005114” when you register for the game. Good Luck and thank you in advance.
So I tried it out and it came with two standard scratch cards which gave me a total of $0.44 cents instantly which isn’t too bad for doing nothing except for the initial conversion. It will take about a minute at the ticketing machine so beware for the crowd behind you.
Shopping for groceries, ordering food from the food apps and online shopping has taken over the world. Covid-19 has made the world to go online and digital in over a short span of time. I find the transformation amazing to the point where businesses are starting to show that they value the digital aspect of promoting their products and services. In Singapore, I do see that many businesses are transforming and redesigning their businesses to a different model as before. However, there are still those black sheep who are out there to just cheat or jack prices up to profit from scarcity.
Speaking of shopping online. This is a really cool site to download the app into your mobile phone. This is a local company named Shopback. It gives you cashback into your account for any online spending. These days, you can link your credit card and once you spend on your credit card, the cashback automatically gets credited to your Shopback account. Talk about convenience. There is a new function that Shopback has and that is to purchase vouchers directly from Shopback. You can even use the credits from the cashback you received from previous purchases. That’s stacking more deals and more discounts.
Each time you use your card on eligible brands and products (F&B, hotel staycation, vouchers and etc…) there will be a cash back amount allocated to you. The cash will be credited to your account ranging from 3 days to 3 months depending on when the merchant pays them for referring or recommending their products. To a certain extent, it is similar to affiliate marketing. Instead of paying out in marketing costs, the merchants pay affiliate marketers to promote their brands and Shopback gives back a portion of that commission back to the consumers as a form of incentive.
Enough said about getting more bang for your buck. Try it out and see it for yourself. We both earn a $5 bonus once you use my code and spend $20. Easy Peasy.
With the recent 9.9 sale, using a Citibank credit card seem to net you more cashback than usual. Something like additional 3% more cashback but not too sure when that would last till. Promotions don’t last forever so while stocks last. You can actually buy online vouchers from Qoo10, comfortdelgro, grab mart, grabfood, grabtaxi, pupsik, fairprice, GV and more
During random periods or campaigns, they may have upsized cashback deals which doubles the % of deals to your account once you make a transaction. From local brands to big global brands, grocery shopping and ticketing. I’ll say it is a no-brainer.
This is not a sponsored post and purely my own opinion that I am writing about in my thoughts. If you like what you are seeing, do remember to check they out and do your diligence. Don’t be too fixated with what is the best.
