Shopping is a national past time in Singapore. It is so popular, that the country celebrates a major sale twice a year. When June arrives, it is time for the Great Singapore Sale. Retailers from every industry will cut prices to encourage shoppers to spend. This year, sale season started with the Singapore Consumer Electronics Expo at Suntec city convention centre.
Spread out over three days, and hosted in one of the largest conferencing facilities in Singapore, this is one of the most popular major retail events in the season. By the time I arrived there at 2p.m., the floor was packed with shoppers looking for bargains.
They were a few very attractive deals going. The one that really caught my I was in Microsoft surface pro for that was fully speced out going for SG$2,458. That’s $400 below regular retail price. I didn’t see any drones on offer, which was a bit disappointing for me.
Last year, I picked up a robot vacuum there for about $300 less than retail price, and my DJI Osmo for $200 under retail price.
The Singapore Consumer Electronics Expo is a great opportunity for buyers to pick up a great deal. Your biggest challenge will be working your way through the crowds. If you’re in Singapore at this time, I highly recommend visiting.
