Covid-19 vaccinations come with perks, and we’re not referring to the fact that it keeps us safe. Shops and eateries are now dishing out vaccination perks to encourage even more people to get vaxxed. Because if there’s one thing that gets us excited, it's a good bargain.
Currently, the nationwide Covid-19 vaccination drive is in full swing. The target is to have two out of three people here fully vaccinated by August. At press time, 58 per cent of Singapore residents have received at least one dose.
If you’re among this group of people, these are some deals you shouldn’t miss out on.
25 per cent off Grain’s one-week meal plans
The online restaurant prides itself in serving up delish meals that are good for you, and now the company wants to encourage more folks to get inoculated — Grain is offering 25 per cent off for one week of its Meal Plans subscription service. Prices start at $9.95 per meal, and the menu consists of a mix of local, Western and fusion dishes that won’t thwart your #cleaneating plans. Opt for the single, couples or family plans and choose how many meals you’d like to pre-order for the week.

Free chili crab buns from House of Seafood
The Punggol seafood restaurant that made headlines for its crab-walking publicity stunt is now offering 10,000 free chili crab giant buns (usually priced at $28.80 each) to those who have received at least one vaccine dose. Customers will also have to purchase at least one menu item to score a free chili crab giant bun. Limited to one redemption per order, and only for dine-in and takeaway orders (not from third-party delivery platforms) as you’ll have to present proof of vaccination upon ordering at its Punggol outlet.

Discounts at over 50 merchants under the #iamvaccinatedsg movement
Over 50 merchants are doling out discounts as part of this initiative by healthcare provider Minmed Group and Integrated Health Information System (IHIS) to encourage more people to get vaccinated.
The promos run the gamut from lifestyle and beauty deals to dining and household discounts. If you’re looking to snag a good deal at TheFaceShop, there’s 10 per cent off with a minimum spend of $50. Or perhaps it’s time to stock up on health supplements — GNC is offering 15 per cent off to vaccinated peeps. If you need help with household chores after your jab, concierge platform Helpling has $35 off general cleaning services for new users. Foodies can choose from seven dining deals, including $2 off at Smooy Yoghurt. For heartier meals, there’s 25 per cent off Hard Rock Café Sentosa as well.
The full list of participating merchants and the deals and discounts they’re doling out to newly-vaxxed folks are consolidated here.
