Best deals and promotions in Singapore for July 2018
Image adapted from: Kushikatsu Tanaka SG
The best part of the mid-year period is the Great Singapore Sale. While many stores are reaching the end of their sales seasons as we almost unknowingly ease into the second half of 2018, there are still a good handful of promotions still up and running. From 1-for-1 manicures to 12-for-$12 Krispy Kreme donuts, here are the best lobangs to go crazy for this month.
1. 1-for-1 Korean seafood noodles at Nipong Naepong
The Ro Ppong-Roje ($17.80), with tomato cream sauce

If you haven’t had the chance to try jjampong, a Korean seafood noodle dish, before - here’s the perfect opportunity. Nipong Naepong is having a 1-for-1 Ppong deal at their newest 313@Somerset outlet. Prices start from about $15.80, which means you could be paying less than $8 for a satisfying bowl of noodles.
The dry-style Tae Ppong ($15.80) with mussels, squid, and tobiko

You’d probably have walked past a T2 Tea outlet and seen their huge wall of tea cubes - and generous jugs of free tea samples - by now. This GSS season, they’re having a buy 2 get 1 free promotion for all teas both in-store and online, so stock up your pantry with their interesting flavours like Chocolate Oolong, Coco Calypso, and Mangoes and Cream.
Each tea cube starts from around $16, which means you’ll get each box from less than $11 with the sale.
Promotion period: Until 8 July 2018
3. 12-for-$12 donuts at Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme is back at it again with their 12-for-$12 deal on Original Glazed donuts. This means you’ll be paying just $1 per donut! If previous Krispy Kreme promotions have taught us anything, it’s that these goodies get snapped up real fast, so you’d want to make your way down early to queue before they run out.

12. 50% off haircuts and 30% off lash services at Nine by Sweet Basil
Not all of us can afford designer haircuts at upmarket salons, which is why we tend to go to for more affordable neighbourhood barbers.

But this July, you can splurge just a little and treat yourself to a makeover at Japanese salon Nine by Sweet Basil, as their hair services are going at 50% off - that means cuts from $45 (U.P. from $90), and dyeing from $60 (U.P. from $120). Since their skilled hairstylists have served many celebs, entertainers, and models in Japan, this pricing is pretty reasonable!
