Flash sale details
|Value Per Point*
You can redeem these in your Grab app, and they are limited to 10 per voucher per user.
Each Grab point is normally worth 0.2 cents, but a good rewards chaser would never redeem it at that value. Grab sales like this come often enough, and it’s easy to beat the 0.2-cent valuation.
While the $1 voucher seems to give the best bang for your points, do note that you cannot stack multiple vouchers for one ride. This means that this redemption could well be worth $0 in some cases. For instance, you could have booked a Grab ride for $12, while GoJek offers the ride for $11. Using your $1 for Grab in this case makes you no better off than simply booking a GoJek, which means you have spent 55 points for nothing.
The same calculus should be applied to the other redemptions if you’re nitpicky like me. I frequently see cheaper rides available on other ride hailing apps, and they’re usually a few dollars less. This means a $10 Grab voucher could be worth around $7 to $8, or however much cheaper the other rides are.
Even at the most optimal scenario (Grab Ride’s fare is on par or cheaper than other rides), a 0.286-cent value is pretty common for Grab points, and I would suggest waiting for other redemptions. This way, you have the freedom not to be locked into Grab for your rides.
If you’re exclusively using Grab, I guess there’s little harm redeeming these. It’s rare nowadays to get more than 0.286 cents with SP GreenUP nerfed. I’d still wait for any surprise that Grab might have in store for us though. Any surprise that doesn’t involve devaluation, that is.
