Organised by Singapore Retailers Association (SRA) and supported by UnionPay — the Official Payment Brand of GSS 2018 as well as the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), these initiatives were designed to continue delivering buzz to the Singapore retail scene during The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) 2018.
SRA President Mr R Dhinakaran said: “As we get closer to the end of GSS 2018, we hope shoppers would continue to hunt for promotions and discounts being offered and not miss out on last minute deals made especially more attractive on the 8 August GST Absorbed Day.”
Shoppers can look out for the GST Absorbed Day decal in participating stores island-wide and grab their GSS deals, GST-free.
It will also be the last two weekends where GoSpree rovers and mascot will roam Orchard Road, displaying QR codes full of treats. Be sure to catch them on 4-5 and 11-12 August, and stand to win over $8,000 worth of instant prizes every weekend.
GoSpree is SRA’s mobile app which brings retail and service stores, shopping malls, dining outlets, attractions, leisure activities and hotels located island-wide all ‘under one App’. GoSpree users can browse for value-for-money deals and exclusive offers to enjoy savings in the form of ‘eCoupons’ which can be downloaded directly from their smartphone devices for redemption at designated stores — thereby helping to drive footfalls and spending whole year round. From 8 June 2018, GoSpree users will enjoy an improved user interface for a better ‘online’ shopping experience including new App features such as Geofencing, eGifting. For merchants, the use of QR Codes will make the invalidation of eCoupons easier, and facilitate reconciliation and reporting by individual outlets.
