Attention All Foodies: ShopBack GO Is Here!
The savviest of us have been using ShopBack for a while now to save big on favourite merchants, discover new stores, and even get Cashback on our online purchases. But what if we told you that you can NOW enjoy the same seamless process on offline purchases with ShopBack GO (Now officially launched!)?
We’ll give you a moment to let that sink in…
Oh yeah. And it’s a really simple process that doesn’t require you to top up an e-wallet, pay with a QR code, or fumble about to redeem a voucher.
Just link your card once, activate the Cashback offer in the app, pay in-store with the same card. And… Boom.
It’s. That. Simple.
If you’re already convinced, download or open the ShopBack app now and start exploring! And if you’d like to find out a little more about why and how to use ShopBack GO, read on to find out.

Why Use ShopBack GO?
Two words. Seamless Experience.
Have you ever paid for a meal and experienced any of this:
- Forgot to bring or show the staff a coupon or discount voucher that was in your wallet
- Forgot to check an app or multiple apps for any “one for one” deals available, or *gasp* a 50% discount (dies…)
- Had to fuss with topping up an app or e-wallet in order to pay or enjoy the promo or discount offered
- Both you AND the counter staff can’t figure out whether you need to pay with a QR code, a thumbprint, a retina scan, a blood sample, or etc.
The list goes on, but you get the gist…
Well… We’re proud to announce that ShopBack GO is ShopBack’s new feature that allows you to earn Cashback in-stores at over 1000 food and beverage outlets like Beauty In The Pot, Paradise Dynasty, Tiong Bahru Bakery, Yolé, and more!
Don’t see your favourite cafe or restaurant? Fret not, as we’ve got hundreds more and plenty more coming onboard with us!
Apart from linking your card in the ShopBack app and activating the cashback offer you want, you simply pay as you normally would by swiping or tapping your Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card.
Yes, this could be your experience when you dine out with ShopBack GO. Cheesy dance moves HIGHLY optional.
Best of all, you can even stack your Cashback on top of in-store promotions AND card benefits!
Oh yeah… SUPER SERIOUS.
So… How Does ShopBack GO Work?
We thought you’d never ask. All it takes is 4 simple steps:
Step 1: Link Your Card
Download the ShopBack app and link any Singapore-issued Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card.
You can link as many cards as you want and remove them anytime you want as well.
And if you’re concerned about the security of the information given to us, rest assured that we do not store any of your card details. We’re also not charging anything to your credit or debit card. We just need the information in order to work with Visa and Mastercard to securely track Cashback for you!
Step 2: Activate Cashback
Wherever you are, just open ShopBack GO within the ShopBack app to find participating outlets near you. Tap “Activate” to activate a Cashback offer for any outlet you like (or as many as you like, in fact) before you pay in-store.
Step 3: Pay As Usual
Once you’ve had your meal, simply pay as usual. Yep. It’s that simple!
Just insert, swipe, or tap the same card you linked to pay directly in-store. Or if you’ve also linked your card to Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay, simply use your smartphone or smartwatch to make your payment.
You don’t even have to open the ShopBack GO app to do anything unless you’re redeeming a voucher that you bought. Or when you want to check if your Cashback offer is still activated.
Pro tip: That’s even more reason to offer to pay first when you’re out with friends (Writer’s note: they won’t even know that you’re getting Cashback). Plus you won’t seem cheap in front of your date even if you’re scoring a sweet Cashback on the meal which you paid for!
Step 4: Earn Cashback
Earn Cashback for every payment (Note: Cashback is available on final spend before GST and service charges). And guess what? All Cashback earned is on top of any (or all) of the following:
- Card benefits
- Existing or in-store promotions
- Reservation discounts
If you play your cards right, you just might be able to walk away with a free meal.
