What Are The Best Birthday Perks in Singapore?

As you can see from my table above, there are tonnes of birthday perks to take advantage of.

But here are some of the most noteworthy birthday perks that you should try not to miss!

Free Entry To The Singapore Zoo

*Temporarily Suspended*

If you don’t know this, then you really should be born in the zoo.

Best of all, you can also bring friends along who have birth dates that are CLOSE to yours too!

The free admission for birthday guest is valid with an accompanying paying guest.

And this is valid for 7 days from date of birth (actual date inclusive).

For example, if your birthday is on 1st May, you are eligible for your FREE entry from 1st May to 7th May.

What’s more, you get 10% off all retail and F&B outlets when you present your admission ticket.

Note: You get free entry to River Safari, Jurong Bird Park, and Night Safari too!

Free Ice Cream at Swensen’s

The best way to celebrate your birthday is with a Free Firehouse Happy Birthday Ice Cream at Swensen’s (has to be the actual day).

All you have to do is present your NRIC or passport before ordering.

They’ve been offering this ever since I WAS A KID!

I always have fond memories of my sisters and me having our birthday meals at Swensen’s (almost) every year for the free ice-cream!

Free Fruit Platter or Longevity Buns at Hai Di Lao

You’ve probably seen videos of your friends being celebrated by the staff members’ enthusiastic singing and their flashing LED signboards.

But it is more than just mere fruits and buns.

It is liveliness.

It is joy.

It is the singing-your-happy-birthday-song-in-a-room-full-of-strangers awkwardness.

Pro Tip: Always Review Your Memberships

Identity Card

Yep.

You might be lazy to do so, but if you take the time and effort to check your memberships, you’ll always stand to enjoy some form of Happy Birthday reward or perk.

Here are some memberships that offer pretty sweet birthday treats:
