Just to share with my Singaporean readers on 5 ways to save money while shopping!
1) Universal Studios Ticket
This is a very good bargain, Qoo10 is selling the Universal Studios Singapore Ticket at half the retail price. Normal price is $74. If you haven’t visited USS yet, this June holidays is a good time.
2) Cheap and good iPhone Cable
Everyone knows that the official Apple cable is very expensive, overpriced in fact. Most people just need a basic iPhone cable that can charge and connect to computer. I personally bought this cable, at $3.70 it is extreme value for money. So far so good, it charges and transfer data well. I don’t think you can find another place with such low price for a cable.
3) Amazon Kindle
At $99, it is one of the cheapest electronic items out there (as compared to iPhone, iPad, etc.) Also, Kindle is ideal as a gift to students as it is very education oriented, and has less games than the iPad (a upside for children).
4) Cheapest Computer in Singapore
This notebook (from HP) would be a good choice if you need a basic laptop for school work. There are other brands (Asus, Lenovo) at similar prices at Qoo10. Very few physical shops have computers at this price.
5) Cat6 Ethernet Cable
Many households (including myself, until recently) are still using Cat5 / Cat5e old cables which would impact your internet speed. No point subscribing to the best internet plan, and have it all slowed down by an outdated Cat5 cable. This Cat6 Ethernet Cable may be what you need to boost your internet connection.
