How To Satisfy Your Inner Grinch This Festive Season

How To Satisfy Your Inner Grinch This Festive Season


The year-end season is not for everyone. There we said it.

If you cringe at:
• Michael Bublé constantly cooing “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...” at every shopping mall
• realising that “he sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake” is kind of creepy even if Santa’s a jolly old man in a red suit
• being a Secret Santa to that colleague you never speak to
• being interrogated by your aunties on your relationship status/child-bearing abilities/career plans at family gatherings

Then perhaps you are secretly a Grinch at heart.


1. Save big with SAFRA’s Featured Deals and Festive Promos

You know that annoying feeling when you finish gift shopping for others, only to find that you have run out of money to buy a proper gift for yourself? We feel you.


Treat yourself and save this year with exciting shopping, dining and staycation deals at our partner merchants such as Topman, Brewerkz and Park Regis Singapore with SAFRA’s Featured Deals and Festive Promos.


2. Use your NS50 vouchers and receive a $5 SAFRA voucher


It is tough getting our inner Grinch to hang out and be jolly with others, but it is practically a human rights crime when we have to pay for the outing. What if we told you that you can not only fund your year-end outings with vouchers, you can also redeem more vouchers for yourself whilst doing so?

Use your NS50 vouchers to fund your year-end meet-ups, dinners and gift-giving! Utilise them before they expire at the end of this year at any of our SAFRA clubs and partner merchants.

What’s more, for every $20 NS50 voucher spent at SAFRA clubs, you will get a $5 SAFRA club voucher. Click here to find out more.


3. Fly out of the country


Out of sight out of mind, right? A holiday is the perfect getaway from your aunties’ incessant interrogation during the year-end family gathering. Who knows, you may even meet Bae during the trip and get to change your Facebook relationship status for 2019.

Make use of the Emirates promo for SAFRA members to book your next getaway to more than 150 locations and save up to 10% off your flights!

Not yet a SAFRA member? Sign up before 31 December 2018 to not only enjoy exclusive travel benefits, but stand a chance to win return trips for 2 in the SAFRA Membership Grand Draw 2018 to exotic destinations such as the Maldives, Santorini, Las Vegas and Barcelona!

4. Go for the most Un-Festive activities


Bring the axe down on the holiday spirit for a brief respite from all the festivities. Try your hand at indoor axe throwing at Axe Club where you and your friends can compete at hurling axes at target boards. SAFRA members enjoy 1-for-1 admission and more from now till 28 Feb 2019.

Alternatively, experience the ultimate fun at indoor urban playground BOUNCE Singapore. Featuring a different variety of trampoline zones, Asia’s first “Ninja-Warrior” style adventure course: X-Park, and Singapore’s first “Leap of Faith”, BOUNCE Singapore caters to everyone from kids aged three and above to youths, adults and fitness enthusiasts. SAFRA members enjoy 10% off General Admission tickets to BOUNCE Singapore from now till 30 Jun 2019.

If you are more of a keyboard warrior, “jio” your buddies out instead for a session of good ol’ Left 4 Dead 2 and DOTA 2 at Clique Gaming. SAFRA members enjoy 15% off the subtotal bill.


5. Learn the true meaning of the Season of Giving

Life is a journey, we live and we learn. Perhaps it is time to melt that permafrost on the icicle that is your heart and embrace the joy of giving. What better way to do that than to learn from the very OG himself – THE GRINCH.
