Shop and save
by Cynthia Loh

Looking to shop and save?

Here are some ideas to help you shop on a tighter budget, but do your bit to keep the economy going as well.

Shop hunt @ T3 and shop for free
Changi Airport has been absorbing GST at Terminal 3 since Nov 2008. The good news is passengers and shoppers can now look forward to not paying GST for the rest of the year at selected participating outlets in the public area located in T3's Levels 2, 3 and Basement 2.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is also organising an interactive ‘Stamp and Win’ game for all passengers and visitors to T3’s public area. Visitors can participate in this game to obtain five stamps from any of the participating outlets at the different levels to qualify. No purchases are required. Game participants can redeem free T3 premiums and stand chances to win $500 of Changi Shopping Vouchers weekly.

CAAS is also giving out free $5 discount coupons which shoppers can use when they spend $30 and above at any of the participating retail outlets at T3’s public area.

Affordable chic lunches at Oriole Cafe & Bar
This newly-opened cafe is offering a revised menu featuring a variety of global favourites from a Thai-style Green papaya salad to Italian pastas and English fish & chips (all under S$15) and daily set lunches that start from S$12++.

And if you're a coffee buff, be sure not to miss the cuppas by its award-winning head barista John Ting.
