Complete List of 1-for-1 Buffet Promotions To Spend Your Year-End Bonus On (2018)

1 min read

Editor’s note: We apologise for the wrong indication of information on Racines’ (Sofitel Singapore) promotion with HSBC and have since removed it from this compilation. Certain promotions have also been amended or removed as they are ‘1 dines free with 2 paying adults’ instead of 1-for-1 deals. All information provided here are sourced from the banks’ promotion pages directly and we welcome any clarification if necessary.


The end (of the year) is nigh.

As we count down to the end of 2018, what else can we look forward to besides the festivities of Christmas? YEAR-END BONUS, of course!

Based on statistics, the first thing people dedicate their bonuses to is travelling, next would be on food! 85% of dates revolve around food. Of course, there’s no shortage of affordable under-$30 places to dine in Singapore, but A BUFFET ON DISCOUNT SOUNDS AMAZING, YES?!

TL;DR: EAT LIKE A KING ON A BUDGET!

(Cover image amended on 20/11/18)

Here’s a super duper comprehensive list sorted by bank for all you foodies and couples who are looking to enjoy extravagant buffet dates for cheap! We’ve also included 1-for-1 mains or high tea for example, which will come in handy when you’re not hungry enough for a full-on buffet.

The top 4 1-for-1 buffet deals that are offered by several banks:

Be sure to always check the terms and conditions first. You may have to make reservations beforehand and remember to quote your bank name to secure the discount (because it may be limited to a certain number of patrons a day) and pay using that card.

The best times to go for a buffet are weekday lunches as these are when buffet prices are the cheapest. However, dinners would usually offer you a more luxurious spread, hence the higher prices.

If you’re a foodie and buffets aren’t really exciting you anymore, this list of Mookata places in Singapore could help switch things up a bit!
