National Day 2022 Deals You Can’t Miss!

It’s that time of the year again – red-and-white flags billow from window sills, and smiling faces of children in multiracial costumes adorn neighbourhood billboards. Familiar songs waft from public speakers, but after a while, they all seem to coalesce into a nationalistic jumble parroting the same platitudinous verses. National Day is coming soon.

If you’re like me and don’t even give the state-sanctioned parade more than a perfunctory glance, there’s something more exciting about August – prepping your moolah for the best National Day deals in town. Yes, every brand is playing with the number “57” and coming up with new local flavours to create hype during this birthday season.

With the gahmen’s gift of GST vouchers, what better way to show your love for Singapore than by helping boost the economy?

So let’s not waste time. Check out the unmissable National Day deals you’ll be able to take advantage of during this period!
