Google Pay Hawker Pals: Pretty Easy S$3.20 to S$105 Cashback!

From 8th to 20th August 2023, Google Pay users will be challenged to prepare three beloved local delicacies like steamed egg and chili crab for each of the four endearing Hawker Pals like Meow Shanwang… MEOW Shanwang!! Oh Google.

Anyway, this mini0game is pretty simple, and you can get some easy cash (anywhere between S$11.54 S$3.20 to S$105 over the next couple of weeks) by completing various payment activities using Google Pay.

If you don’t have Google Pay, use my link to sign up for a new user promo:

Current sign up reward for Google Pay: get S$3 when you use my referral link and make a transaction of at least S$10. This is as of 5th February 2023.


The tasks you have to do are pretty simple. They include things like:

  1. Transfer a minimum of S$10 to a friend who is a Google Pay user.
  2. Make a PayNow/FavePay transaction amounting to at least S$3 with Google Pay.
  3. Answer a brief Singapore-themed trivia challenge.

After successfully fulfilling a round, users will be presented with a scratch card. There are a total of 4 rounds, with each lasting 3 days.

Task 1 is pretty simple – as long as you have friends/family with Google Pay.

Task 3 is also easy; just take a look at the Quiz Answers below.

Ways to complete Task 2

Task 2 is perhaps the trickier one. Members in the group chat are trying all manners of QR payments to clock this task, and the following are tested to work:

If you need to complete Task 2 multiple times, you can pay to the same merchant and it would still work.
