5 tips of making the best of Senior Deals!

With our government in the lead to provide financial assistance through MediSave top-up and NTUC Fair Price to extend discounts schemes, we have seen more and more retailers coming out with deals catering specially for our seniors and pioneer generation. Besides coming out with the best of senior deals in town, we are also going to share with you 5 tips on how to make the best out of each deal!

Tip #1 Plan your purchase in advance

Yes! As direct and simple as it sounds! Write a shopping list, plan the errands to run and even check the movie screening timing before heading out. All these 'homework' done ahead of time will definitely help ensure a smooth day out and avoid unnecessary disappointment.

Take for example our Suki-Ya 20% off for senior deal. You can click on the terms and conditions on the deal page and noticed that they need you to produce your ID bearing your birth date, so checklist #1 Pack your ID (item #2 would be to bring your Trace Together device out).

Also, check the calendar (ensure it's not a public holiday nor a special occasion day) and that the promotion is still valid.

If you still have dietary related questions or not sure about the current dine-in regulations, simply click on our source link button and you will be directed to the retailer's website where you can call them up personally to check or to make a reservation with them.

Tip #2 Know your privileges and entitlement

Don't we just love to sign up card after card with the intention of enjoying its special perks and discounts only to find ourselves keeping the card till the promotion period is over? (I am guilty of it!) And Passion Card is one of those card that offers discounts from approximately 200 different merchants — yet, how often do we make use of it?

Tip #3 Check the crowd

Other than remembering to bring our ID and Trace Together device out, we can make use of some apps like Space Out to check the crowd level for malls especially. Space Out provides hourly updates on crowd levels, allowing you to steer clear from peak hour crowds. Not only do they provide information on the mall of your choice, they also recommend nearby heartland malls as less crowded alternatives for you to check out.

This is exceptionally useful for grocery purchase where you need to flash your ID to enjoy the 3% discount! Another great news is that Giant and HAOmart have both responded to netizen's suggestion to extend it to other days of the week to reduce crowding! Hooray!
