Most of us (myself included), look forward to the weekend to unwind and let go of the stressful work week we’ve had. Be it chilling with work colleagues or with catching up with friends, entertainment especially around food and drinks, makes up an integral part of our socializing. Many of us enjoy a drink or two with our friends. Some of us, a little more. While I’m not advocating the lifestyle of an alcoholic, let’s be honest, no great story starts off with a glass of milk.

As fun as partying can be, there are two unpleasant things that accompany it the following morning. One being a horrid hangover and two, facing the bill you’ve racked up the previous night.

Here are a few credit cards that can possibly provide you some relief when looking at the bill. The hangover part is up to you.


This card has been aptly named for the generation of millennials who seem to have taken over. The YOLO card is an easily accessible card with great benefits. The card puts the happy in happy hours and offers you a one for one deal on drinks at some of Singapore’s leading bars and clubs such as ‘The White rabbit’, ‘Tanjong Beach Club’, and ‘The Rabbit Hole’. Apart from drinks, the card also allows you to purchase 1 for 1 movie tickets at Cathay Cineplexes.

The card is a cashback card which gives you up to 8% cashback on dining and entertainment.

The card has an annual fee of S$192.60 and Singaporeans only need to earn a minimum annual income of S$30,000 to apply.

2. Citibank Clear Platinum Card

While you may have enough drinks to acquire groggy vision, the benefits provided by this card live up to its name.

The card is a rewards card which earns 1 reward point for every S$1 charged to the card, while overseas expenses and foreign currency expenses earn 5 reward points for every S$1 charged to the card.

The card not only earns points on your beverage expenses but also provides you free entry to Zouk and offers a 1 for 1 special on drinks. You will be happy to know that annual fee of S$160.50 is waived for the first year.

Update: The Citibank Clear Platinum Credit Card is no longer available for application. 

3. HSBC’s Revolution Credit Card

If you can’t decide which bar or pub you want to visit or if you just want to wing it, then this card is perfect for you. You will receive 5X Rewards on all spends at bars, clubs and pubs in Singapore. This reward only has one teeny-tiny stipulation, you won’t earn rewards when you spend within a hotel, but other than that you’re good to go.

Drinking on an empty stomach is dangerous right? If you’re broke and choose drinks over food, how about a little additional reward? You will also receive 5X Rewards on all dining spends in Singapore. So fill-up that tummy before you let it loose.

The card has an annual fee of S$160.50 but, wait for it – only from the third year onwards. Enjoy annual fee waiver for the first 2 years.
