Readers can enjoy some of these treats when they download the SPH Rewards App.
From Thursday (Feb 15), the benefits will be extended to the public for a month. They were previously available only to members of the Chinese Media Group (CMG) Readers Club. A one-time password, ZB3018, is needed to access the deals.
