I’M DAMN AUNTY.
It seems like nowadays I refuse to settle on a purchase until I’ve done my research on all the possible discounts, offers and promotions available to ensure I get the best deal.
Damn aunty right?
And by “research”, I mean Google. No, seriously man – I can’t believe I used to buy stuff without bothering to check for discounts…. imagine the amount of money I could have saved!
Just last week, thanks to my, ahem, “research”, I managed to save a WHOPPING 18% OFF an item that hardly ever goes on sale cos it sells SO WELL, you’d better snag it if you can even get a 10% discount.
I saved SGD19.62 on my order, 18% off the original price!
How? BECAUSE I BOTHERED TO GOOGLE FOR DISCOUNT CODES. And I tell you, whilst you can find plenty of online discount coupons, only a handful of them work. The rest are either garbage or require you to use a certain bank’s credit card. Soooo…. I was SUPER THRILLED about the 18% discount! #somuchwin
Eh, I’ve always been skeptical about such third party online discount sites, OK? Cos they simply seem too good to be true. Who gives you a discount without wanting something in return? Besides, third party sites are almost always full of ads, or they try to con you into signing up for some email list, or register an account to access these “privileges” – you know, gimmicky stuff – then BAM! your inbox gets flooded by spam mail pronto. Urgh.
Based on my Googling experience, I conclude that there are only a few sites publishing up-to-date discount codes that ACTUALLY WORK. I’ve come across sites that prompt you to click multiple times to “REVEAL CODE NOW!” only to show you a bunch of useless letters that don’t work. Sites that generate 5824907690276 annoying pop-ups FOR NOTHING. It gets a little frustrating sometimes, it’s like being taken on a wild goose chase.
We’re like, what, 2 weeks? into the Great Singapore Sale and I can tell you, I’m waiting for more discounts to come up before I spend my hard-earned money today on stuff that’ll most likely go on 50% off next week. Good discounts are worth waiting for, no? #auntymodeON
You’ve probably already Googled “discount code Singapore” like I did, and trust me when I say I know how painful and disappointing the process can get. To save you some agony, I’ll let you in on this small shortcut – one of the sites I discovered that generates Great Singapore Sale discount codes. In fact, it’s the one I used to get that 18% discount. Getting good deals is so PAINLESS now. What are some of your favourite discount sites? Share share leh! xx J
