Sign Up for the Sands Rewards Card for some Great Perks

Before you do anything at Marina Bay Sands sign up for the Sands rewards card. You can do this at a kiosk just inside the mall after exiting the MRT. Your real name is needed when you sign up because they will check your passport or ID and take your photo for the card. Deciding what phone number or email you want to give them is up to you.

Enjoying a Billion Dollar View for Free

The card is FREE and it is worth signing up for if you want to do activities around the hotel/mall/casino. We signed up because you can gain free access to the Ce La Vie bar. Why pay to go to the Skypark observation deck when you can look for free from just above with this card’s free entry to the bar/club.  You also get a S$5 credit to use of food or activities at the Marina Bay Sands Resort. Score!

Live a Little and Have a Drink at CÉ LA VI Rooftop Bar

We loved that we could enter more than once and could enjoy it all without having to spend any money. Still, we couldn’t resist having a drink up here and lingering long enough to enjoy the night show upon our first entry. And the drinks, while pricey at S$22 each plus tax, are pretty delicious.

We tried the famous Singapore Sling and a Monsoon Ice Tea. Both were refreshing and since we got a great lounge seat we spent a good 1.5-2 hours taking pictures, watching the sunset, watching the city light up, and then watching the lights show from above. When we went back to checkout the view during the day we didn’t buy anything so our visit was FREE.
