Battle of the online Marketplaces

The online marketplaces have seen a boom in their sales volume recently, thanks to the Circuit Breaker measure that has resulted in home-bound people doing much more shopping online than in brick-and-mortar shops. You may not have noticed, but I’ve seen the online sellers or merchants swing from panic selling to now hiking prices (beer …

Battle of the Supermarkets

Not sure if you feel the same, but once taken-for-granted, now the Supermarket has become almost a sacred place. You need to queue to get in, and, I’m not sure about you, once inside, I don’t just hurriedly get the stuff in my groceries list. I would scan the shelves to see if there is …

Review of EAMart and Fairprice On

Get 18% off coupon when you sign up with EAMart here. After the success story of Redmart, new contenders are cropping up every now and then. The new kid on the block is EAMart. Bet you haven’t heard of them. Well, i took notice only because they were the only online grocery store that stocked …

Visa ♥ Shopback

Not wanting to be left out, Visa now partners with Shopback and dishes out more cashback if you go through the Visa promo page. However, they can’t actually force you to make payment with a Visa credit/debit card on the actual merchant’s site. All you have to do is to fill in the first 6 digits of …

Honestbee second review

  My second Honestbee delivery came exactly on time at 12pm (my selected slot was 12 – 1pm), so, bravo on that. Only half the items i ordered were fulfilled, which is great – it means i’m getting a higher percentage of discount (43% to be exact). This makes me picture an imaginary scene in Honestbee’s …

Honestbee dangles incentives to get return customers

  I never thought i would use Honestbee again, but they actually came up with an incentive attractive enough – $28 (taking into account the $2 concierge shopping fee) off a $120 purchase, which is almost 25%. For those who buy milk powder or diapers, $120 is a target that is quite easy to hit, but not quite so for me. …

Discounted groceries on Qoo10

Qoo10 does a lot of promotions, and the most recent one caught my attention – Super Sale coupon, whereby you get $10 off $50 and above purchase. That’s a 20% discount, which is not bad (unfortunately this promotion is already over in case you’re wondering). There is also the weekly (every Wednesday) Mastercard coupons promotion, whereby …

Cheap groceries in western Singapore

I think those who live in the western parts of Singapore are blessed with having easy access to cheaper groceries. I will just highlight two places in the west that i visit every now and then, all the way from Hougang, to buy cheap groceries. Standard disclaimer: this is not a paid review. When i say groceries, i …

Last few days to enjoy $10 off $50 purchase on Redmart

Well, on new year’s day, i got a mailer from Redmart that enclosed a coupon code (HAPPY2016) giving a $5 discount. There seemed to be no other conditions attached, like minimum spending, but obviously, you’ll still want to chalk up $50 worth of purchase to avoid paying for delivery. This wasn’t as attractive as the $10 …

Honestbee review

I received my first Honestbee groceries delivery yesterday. Well, they were more than 3 hours late. So much for “get groceries fast”. I was sceptical and my scepticism turned out to be right. If you read their website about how they work, they basically recruit temporary staff to do all the work – packing and …
