UnionPay Cardholders Get Shaw 1-For-1 Movie Deals Till 30 Nov

Watching movies in cinemas is undoubtedly one of the best paktor activities. Be it the first or gazillionth date, we’re all eager to be entertained by cinematic action and drama.

But regularly forking out $26 for a pair of weekend tickets – coupled with fancy meals after the show – can be rather steep.

In the quest to keep bae happy, having the right card will go a long way for future dates.

From now till 30 Nov, UnionPay cardholders get to enjoy 1-for-1 movie deals at Shaw Theatres. There’s also a 15% discount off meals at Tung Lok Group eateries to sweeten the deal — or rather, meal.

Looks like you’ve got your dates settled for the rest of November.

1-for-1 Shaw movie tickets for date night adventures

Tenet has been out for months, and if neither you nor bae have jumped on the Christopher Nolan hype train, good news — the movie is still airing at Shaw Theatres.

If bae is an action movie buff, you can also catch Liam Neeson’s Honest Thief on Friday nights after work.


Simply walk in to buy tickets at Shaw Theatres box offices using your UnionPay card and voila, you can get a 2nd movie ticket for free.

Popcorn and movies go together like toast and coffee, so use this chance to get $1 off a large popcorn combo set.

You can stay engrossed in the movie, but don’t forget to feed all that crunchy caramel goodness to each other too.

Succulent seafood for post-movie hunger pangs

By the end of a 2-hour movie, your stomachs may be grumbling as you’re looking forward to a sumptuous meal.

Succulent chilli crabs drenched in rich, sweet and sour broth may not sound like the top date food option, but if bae loves you, he won’t mind getting his hands dirty.


Test his dedication by asking him to peel the shellfish for you, as Dancing Crab’s à la carte menu is at 15% off when you swipe your UnionPay card.

But if you’re not feeling shellfish, you can check out other restaurants under Tunglok Group for similar deals till 30 Dec. Jio the fam for a feast too, as you’ll need a minimum $120 spend at these places to get the discount:

  • Dancing Crab
  • Tóng Lè Private Dining
  • TungLok Seafood
  • TungLok Heen
  • TungLok XiHé
  • Duckland
  • Lokkee

Now you’ll have enough venues to plan the next family gathering at — just remember to stick to a maximum of 5 people in a group.

FairPrice grocery discounts to cover your snack hauls

Couples who are past their honeymoon phase would know that even trips to the supermarket can be a great bonding experience.

Though you may not be ready to walk down the aisle yet, FairPrice aisles will do for now, as you stock up on snacks and wine for a chill Fridate at home with bae.


UnionPay cards will come in handy for such occasions too. When you buy at least $50 worth of groceries at FairPrice, there’s an 8% discount off the total bill till 30 Nov.
