4 min read

foodie

ˈfuːdi/

noun informal
a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.


Given the limited avenue of entertainment in Singapore, most of us end up finding joy in the food we indulge in.

Like most Singaporeans, the Seedly team loves food too! But unlike many Singaporeans, our tiny paycheque requires us to be more financially savvy when it comes to our frequent food hunt.

We believe that to be a true foodie, one needs to be armed with the latest mobile app to help you dominate your next dining experience.

Best for 1-for-1 deals

All that the consumer needs to do is really easy:

  • Foodies need to pay a yearly or monthly subscription
  • Download the app
  • Head over to any of the partners & redeem your 1-for-1
  • Each app has a maximum number of 1-for-1 redemption for each restaurant, cafe and bar.

1. The Entertainer

With the Entertainer App, find thousands of 1-for-1 foodie deals!

Case in point: Fat Cow

With Entertainer, you’d be saving 50% of a main course (Only for Fat Cow Menu Category) when dining with your partner – that’s an approximate savings of $95!!

Finished up your vouchers? No problem! Simply use your Smiles points to redeem more or use Pings (with friends) to swap for your desired offers!

Rules

Note that offers CANNOT be used with any other discounted offers, promotions or on special menu items.

Generally, the rules for Entertainer’s 1-for-1 deals are pretty simple to grasp. Simply note that only 1 offer can be used by 2 people at a time.

Pro-tip: Save this & you’re good to go!

Rules

Note that offers CANNOT be used with any other discounted offers, promotions or on special menu items.

A comparison between The Entertainer vs Burpple Beyond

Off Peak - $4 / mth

While Burpple Beyond has a higher maximum redemption at each venue, once your 1-for-1 deals have been used up, there are no other ways to get more.

As a rule of thumb, off peak members are only allowed to redeem deals during off peak hours (pre-defined by restaurants) while annual and monthly members can redeem as and when required.

In a certain sense, the restaurant merchants on Entertainer can be geared more towards the “High SES” range while Burpple Beyond tends to gear towards being somewhere in the middle – an “Intermediate SES” range, if you will.

Suffice to say, both apps are continuously bringing more variety of merchants on board to keep a lookout and don’t stop exploring!
