The best ways to save on your M1 bill

HWM (Singapore) - - Gear -

We’ve all done it: gone over our monthly data limit, busted our bud­get for mo­bile, scram­bled to nd free Wi-Fi while over­seas be­cause we don’t have data roam­ing.

There are eas­ier ways to save on your mo­bile bill. Here are some of the best and worst ones.

WORST: Turn off mo­bile data Wor­ried about us­ing too much data and get­ting an ex­tra-large bill at the end of the month? You can turn off mo­bile data to avoid us­ing any — and that’ll help to keep you off data-guz­zling apps like so­cial me­dia and videos. But then, you also won’t be able to get mes­sages from apps that de­pend on data, and that can keep you out of touch.

BEST: Get up to 24GB of free data per month M1 users can sign up for the Citi M1 Card and get up to 24GB of ad­di­tional free data per month if they are new Citi Card­hold­ers. Ex­ist­ing Citi Card­hold­ers can get up to 12GB of ad­di­tional free data per month for the rst 12 months — so you can keep that mo­bile data on and surf to your heart’s de­light. This is ap­pli­ca­ble for cus­tomers who sign up for Citi M1 Card from 12th May 2017 on­wards.

WORST: Hag­gle with the helpline every month Think you’re over­pay­ing for your monthly plans? Why not call up the helpline and hag­gle for a dis­count? It prob­a­bly won’t hap­pen, but you can sharpen your ne­go­ti­at­ing skills.

BEST: Save up to 10% off your monthly bills with a sin­gle card Pay us­ing the Citi M1 Card and get a dis­count on your M1 bill! You only need to ac­cu­mu­late a min­i­mum of $600 on re­tail spend­ing to en­joy 10% sav­ings on your monthly re­cur­ring bills. No hag­gling needed.

WORST: Scram­ble for free Wi-Fi The worst things about not hav­ing data while in a for­eign land are be­ing lost and out of touch, which is why so many of us scram­ble to nd free Wi-Fi. But even if you can some­how con­nect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, there’s a lot to worry about, least of all spotty con­nec­tions and slow speeds. Pub­lic Wi-Fi is no­to­ri­ous for man-in-the- mid­dle style at­tacks, where ma­li­cious agents can steal the data that you’re trans­mit­ting in the clear.

BEST: Get great deals on data roam­ing M1 of­fers one of the best value-for-money data roam­ing deals with Data Pass­port. For fees as low as S$10, you can use your ex­ist­ing data plan over­seas, which is a great deal if you travel fre­quently.
