Singtel Dash is the mobile wallet that makes your morning commute, the grocery store, money transfers and more a snap

The Mom bag. It’s a treasure trove that would give Marry Poppins a run for her money; at any one time we’re apt to have toys, water bottles, snacks, wet wipes, tissues, lipstick, crayons and who knows what else swimming around in there. We’re mamas, we’ve gotta be prepared for any and all eventualities! Somewhere in there you might also find a wallet; is it just us, or is it a HUGE pain fishing that thing out when it comes time pay at the grocery store or tap in for a bus fare?

Not any more, though! Singtel Dash is an all-in-one-mobile wallet that anyone in Singapore can use, regardless of your telco provider! In addition to magically moving spending to the tap of your phone, it allows you to shop, dine, commute and send money both locally and overseas. Brilliant!

Here are just a few of Singtel Dash’s most mama-friendly features:

  • Cashless checkout: Never again will you have to fish through your bag for your wallet at the grocery store while also wrangling a squirming toddler (and telling your 5-year-old to put down the candy – or is that just us?). You can either scan the Dash QR code, or tap and pay with your Singtel Dash Visa Virtual account. You can use Dash at over 55,000 merchant points island wide, including 7-11 and hawker centres!
  • Singtel Dash works for online shopping, too: We hate having to fish out a credit card at the end of a transaction; now you can just copy and use the 16-digit Dash Visa Virtual account number whenever (and wherever) you’re checking out.
  • Commuting is a breeze: You can tap and pay on buses and trains just using your phone via NFC.

Remittance made simple for the Whole Household

Singtel Dash lets you not only transfer money within Singapore (handy for those times when you want to split the bill or pay someone back in a flash!), but also enables helpers to send money to six countries around the region, including the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, China and Bangladesh. When remitting money, every single dollar counts, so having attractive exchange rates and lower fees, and saving time, are all a huge help.

We think it’s fabulous that helpers can save their precious time queueing at traditional remittance houses on their day off and instead just send money home from their mobile phones – anytime, anywhere! The process is super safe and easy: they can register digitally through the app, and you (the employer) can top-up their wallets via peer-to-peer transfer from another Dash account. If a helper prefers, she can also do it on her own at 7-11 or Singtel shops island-wide, then track her remittance history in the app. She can also visit Dash shops at Lucky Plaza and City Plaza for further assistance. The service offers attractive rates and NO hidden fees (helpers can even compare and check the rates themselves within the Dash app).

Adding further convenience for helpers, they can also use Dash to top up their Singtel prepaid cards, whether calling home or keeping in touch with friends here in Singapore.

One more thing to give employers and helpers peace of mind: Singtel Dash is the only remittance service in Singapore that provides free insurance coverage. With every $100 that customers remit, they also qualify for FREE 30-day Dash Protect personal accident insurance coverage worth up to $5,000 (underwritten by NTUC Income).

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what Daryati, a hard-working mama and domestic helper from Indonesia, has to say about her experience with Singtel Dash:

singtel dash daryati helper remittance“I was first introduced to Dash by my employer. She uses the app to top up my account and that makes it very easy for me to send money home. Every month, I use my phone to send money to my sister’s bank account for my child’s school fees and for my mother. I like that I can use my mobile phone to send money back to Indonesia whenever I need to. There have been a few times when I needed to send money home urgently and it was only because I used Dash that I could do this immediately.”
