1-for-1 Buffet Promotions in Singapore that are Worth Your Attention: 2019

Racheal Muriithi

Many people may be ignoring the various 1-for-1 buffets promotions in Singapore on offer nowadays. Instead, they would opt for the 50% off-discounts thinking they would save more bucks. People think, “After all, I only need one plate of food for myself. Why bother about another one.” Rationally, you enjoy more with a companion. Therefore, go for the promotion!

There is a significant difference between the 50% discounts and the 1-for-1 offer. You still don’t believe, check the below example.

An order of two same-priced items from a top-notch hotel:

i) Stir-fried Prawn with Asparagus: S$100

 Stir-fried Prawn with Asparagus: Free

 Sub-total: S$100

10% Service Charge on $100: $10

7% GST on $110: $7.70

Total: S$117.70


ii) Stir-fried Prawn with Asparagus: S$100

   Stir-fried Prawn with Asparagus: S$100

   Sub-total: S$200

50% Off on S$200: -S$100

10% Service Charge on S$200: S$20

7% GST on S$120: S$8.40

Total: S$128.40

There is a difference of a whopping S$ (128.40-117.70)= S$10.70

I hope now you can see how good these promotions are.

Once you decide to go for a promotion, there are things to consider. Firstly, you need to find the expiry of the promotion. Secondly, check with your bank if the patronage is still valid and lastly check the terms and conditions that apply. Some banks limit the offer to a number of patrons per day. The best approach is to make a reservation with your bank.

The promotions that this article talks about are the very best with longer validity. Here are the 1-for-1 buffet promotions that are worth your wallet.
