While the Great Singapore Sale (GSS) might still be a while away, there’s another date coming up that’ll help you save some cash while you snag some great deals.
The date? SAF Day, which falls on 1 July every year.
Anyway, we’re completely sure that these discounts aren’t the reason why Singaporean guys are proud to serve the nation, but who doesn’t like discounts, right?
With it being the 55th year since National Service (NS) started in Singapore, there’s definitely no shortage of deals for this SAF Day.
And if you’re lazy to scour through the websites of all your favourite brands to see which brand’s having what kind of discount for SAF Day, we’ve got you covered with 10 of the best deals you can get during SAF Day this year, so long as you remember to bring your 11B out with you.
Old Chang Kee: Mala Chicken Camou Puff and Chicken Chunky Pop Combo
For starters, I’m sure there’s no Singaporean out there who doesn’t love Old Chang Kee.
And just for SAF Day, the brand’s rolled out their very own Mala Chicken Camou Puff, which has patches of green and black on it to resemble camo cream and the camouflage pattern on SAF’s No.4 uniform.
For just $2.50, you’ll get to sink your teeth into this puff, which has mala marinated chicken meat cubes and peanuts.
Apart from that, for those who can’t get enough of Old Chang Kee’s other treats, Old Chang Kee will also be having a promotion for their Mala Chicken Camou Puff + Chicken Chunky Pop.
While the Chicken Chunky Pop will usually cost you $3.30, purchasing the special SAF-themed puff and the Chicken Chunky Pop will cost just $5.50 for those who’ve served NS before.
But if you’re not heading down to an Old Chang Kee store in your SAF uniform, don’t forget to produce your 11B, SAFRA card or HomeTeamNS card to enjoy the promotion!
