Singapore’s biggest shopping season is here, and while we all know that shopping is a year-round affair, I’ll take any excuse to hit the malls (and ASOS). The Great Singapore Sale is currently in full swing, so get those credit cards ready – here are the best discounts and promo codes for GSS 2018.

Taobao – $0.23 buys and free shipping
Taobao is my one of my favourite online shopping sites because I can shop like a millionaire (in RMB, of course), but no, it’s not that the Chinese online shopping giant has finally acknowledged Singaporeans as die-hard fans. The Great Singapore Sale just so happens to coincide with one of China’s major shopping festivals – the 618 sale.
$5 dresses and $8 shoes can’t go that much cheaper, but you can save on shipping this during the 618 / GSS 2018 sale. Shop at the Tmall Signature Store, and shipping is completely free.
During this period, new users can also purchase selected items for a one-time discounted price, starting from 1.1 RMB (S$0.23) with free shipping.
If you’re deciding which credit card to use, there are 2 promotions. Use a Maybank credit card for $15 cashback for $80 spend (first 700 cardholders only) or a UOB credit card for $10 cashback with $200 spend (first 500 cardholders only).
ASOS – up to $50 off orders
ASOS is best known for their free shipping to Singapore, but on top of that, the British fashion marketplace is now offering an additional $20 to $60 off orders. Use GIVE20 or GIVE35 to score $20 or $35 off $150 and $180 respectively. But for the most discount, chalk up $220 worth of orders to get $50 off with promo code SGP50. Discounts valid until 30 June 2018 so hurry!
Zalora – 70% + 30% off GSS collection
Zalora’s GSS 2018 features a collection of clothes that are $9.90 for 1, $20 for 2 and $30 for 5 (that’s $6 per piece!). There are over 1,500 items on sale, so it shouldn’t be hard to find 5 pieces to add to cart. Most of them are house brand apparel though.
Additionally, use promo code LAST30 to get an extra 30% off sale items.
Lazada – flash deals & weekly themed sales
Lazada’s 618 campaign started on 5 June 2018, and its 2 weeks of GSS flash deals recently ended on 15 June 2018. If you missed it, don’t despair – it’s coming back on 25 to 31 July 2018.
From now until then, there are discounts and bargains for selected shopping categories, including the Taobao collection, home & groceries, beauty, fashion, electronics and even baby care products. Shipping is free, and there is a 14-day free return policy, so go ahead and add ‘em all to your cart.
Additionally, there is a new promo code every day (released at 9am) and a collection of GSS vouchers for selected merchants across all categories.
Qoo10 – 25 participating brands like Laneige, P&G and more
Qoo10’s GSS 2018 isn’t very exciting – there are no storewide promo codes and the curated deals only feature 25 participating brands. Some of the more popular brands are Laneige, and P&G. The most notable – to me anyway – is the Laneige storewide discount of 30% off $100 or 20% off $60 (valid until 18 Jul 2018).
RedMart – GSS deals and credit card promotions
RedMart joins the GSS 2018 festival with a collection of almost 10,000 curated deals. It’s called World On Sale, and organises the sale products by country of origin.
There are bargains for everything, including makeup, personal care products, groceries and even electronics. I’m a beauty junkie, so the first thing to catch my eye was the K-Palette 24H Eyeliner that’s going at $14.93 instead of the usual $19.90.
The general RedMart GSS promotion is $10 off $40 with TENGSS18 (until 30 Jun 2018).
However, there are also quite a few credit card promotions that are running concurrently. Use a Citibank credit card for $8 off $100 with promo code CITIOFFER (valid until 30 Jun 2018), Standard Chartered for $10 off $120 with promo code SC2018 (valid until 31 Mar 2019) or DBS/POSB for $10 off $120 with promo code DBS10 (valid until 6 Nov 2018).
Reebonz – up to 15% + 20% off
If you’ve been eyeing that designer handbag, there’s no better time to hit ‘check out’. This GSS 2018, Reebonz is giving shoppers an extra 15% off with promo code GSS15 (selected items). For the higher end arm candies (above $2,000), use 20GSS for 15% + 20% off. There’s also a curated GSS collection of items going at flat 70% off.
Love Bonito – Citibank credit card promotion
Sadly, my favourite blogshop is not having any current GSS promotions. Love Bonito sales are hard to come by, and the nice pieces are always sold out by the time it’s sale season.
So if you wanna cop an outfit this GSS, use a Citibank credit card to get $8 of $85 with promo code CITILBXXXXXX. For new users (who are also Citibank cardholders), you can get $8 off with no minimum spend using CITINEW8XXXXXX. (For both codes, “XXXXXX” is to be replaced with the first 6 digits of your Citibank credit card.)
HipVan – up to $120 off furniture and homeware
New homeowners, the GSS is the best time to furnish your home for cheap. With promo code HIPGSS, you can get a maximum of $120 off $1,000 at HipVan. It may seem a lot, but if you’re making big ticket purchases like dining table sets, $1,000 is not hard to hit.
The lower tier discounts are $20 off $250 and $50 off $500 (with the same promo code).
Plus, get free store credits by signing up for their mailing list. The free credits are random, and are between $1 to $100.
