Best deals in Singapore for September 2019
Some of us are still “recovering” from that extra long weekend in August, with intermittent holiday withdrawals as we go about the daily grind. But don’t go through this month bleary-eyed, because you’ll want to stay alert and make sure you cop all the best deals so you’ll have something new to look forward to each week.
“Wake me up when September ends”? I’ll sleep when I’m dead, thanks, because discounts wait for no one. Especially not when free bubble tea is involved 😉

Bubble tea has become a staple for many of us, but few stop to think of all the waste generated with each single-use plastic cup that comes with our favourite beverage.
To encourage sustainability, the National Museum is giving out free Milk Tea from Gong Cha to anyone who visits their Packaging Matters exhibition with their own bottle in hand. Do note that straws will not be given out as well, so bring along your own reusable ones. Hopefully, this initiative will spark a good habit that will last long after the incentives end.
P.S.: Check out our guide to different types of reusable straws here if you’re not sure which is the best type for you.
Note: Limited to first 200 redemptions per day
