With gatherings and festivities back in full force this Chinese New Year (CNY), DBS has dialled up on their gifting alternatives to help customers enjoy a hassle-free celebration.
With DBS ‘phygital’ and digital gifts, those who prefer physical gifting can choose QR Gift cards (QR AngBaos) or send personalised digital well-wishes with an eGift (eAngBao).
Customers can also go cashless and skip the queues for cash withdrawals.
What’s more, those who want to celebrate CNY more sustainably can switch from using new notes to ‘Fit-for-Gifting’ notes (Fit notes), or even from traditional red packets that are hard to recycle to DBS’ more eco-friendly gifting alternatives.
Here’s a quick run through of what you can expect from DBS this Year of the Rabbit.
eAngBao or QR AngBao
With DBS QR AngBaos, customers are able to preserve the tradition of being able to physically give an AngBao.
DBS came up with a bulk loading feature where customers can load up to 10 QR AngBaos at a go, thus saving significant time and effort.
This year, customers also have more animated gifs to choose from on PayLah!:
Besides this, recipients of QR AngBaos are not limited to using DBS PayLah! to redeem their money, so you don’t have to worry that your family members and loved ones won’t be able to redeem the funds if they don’t have PayLah!.
As long as you have PayNow or PayNow-linked bank account, you can just scan and redeem funds from a QR AngBao and have the loaded value credited directly into your bank account.
