If There’s One Thing That Unites Singaporeans Like No Other

It’s… FOOD!

Better still if it’s a buffet.

Other than those who are (still) on a ‘new year new me’ strict diet, this is the perfect compilation for those who love 1-for-1 hotel restaurant buffets.

I mean, you’ve got to be able to enjoy life once in a while right?

And while there’s no shortage of affordable under-$30 places or even cheap buffets that are under $15 in Singapore…

A 1 FOR 1 BUFFET ALWAYS SOUNDS AMAZING, YES?!

Be sure to make your reservations nice and early before heading down in order to avoid disappointment!


TL;DR: Feast On 1-For-1 Buffets Like Kings And Queens (On A Budget)!

Before you take the list and run out to the nearest restaurant to enjoy your 1-for-1 buffet promotion, here’re a few things you should do first:

  1. Always check with the banks’ websites for the terms and conditions governing these 1-for-1 deals as these can be changed anytime
  2. When making reservations, remember to quote the bank and credit card to enjoy the 1-for-1 dealhich you are using to secure the discount (certain promos might be capped at a certain number of patrons per day or per seating)
  3. Make sure you pay for your bill using the correct card in order to enjoy the 1-for-1 buffet credit card promotion

In my experience, the best time to go for a buffet is during a weekday lunch as that’s when the prices are the lowest.

But on the flip side, dinners usually offer a more luxurious spread, which is also why you’d be paying higher prices.

Maybank 1-For-1 Buffet Dining Promotions 2019

Maybank might be the new kid on the block with regard to dining promotions.

That being said, their 1-for-1 buffet lunch and dinner deals aren’t too shabby either:

Pro Tip: For Those Who Want To Save Even More

While you take advantage of these 1-for-1 buffet deals, always remember to check ShopBack GO to see if any of these restaurants or establishments are on the platform.

If they are, make sure the card which you are using to pay for the 1-for-1 buffet is also linked to your ShopBack GO account.

That way, you’ll also be able to earn some additional cashback.

What If My Favourite 1-For-1 Buffet Restaurant Is Fully Booked?

There really isn’t much to do in Singapore less stuff our faces.

Oh... Sad
