Well, now that the haze is gone, it is time to shop!
If you shop with MasterCard, there is a grand prize of S$20,000 to be won for this GSS! The more you spend during the GSS, the higher your chance of winning. To celebrate the 10th year of MasterCard sponsoring the event, this year cardholders will earn double GSS dollars every time you spend your their MasterCard. It means you get GSS$2 for every dollar you spend – so it doubles your chances of winning the main prize. And as if that wasn’t enough, every 20th MasterCard cardholder to register for the Great Singapore Sale will win one of 200 pairs of tickets to THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. You’ll need to be quick though, as The Great Singapore Sale finishes on 28 July.
To add more fun and excitement to GSS shopping, MasterCard invites Singapore residents and visitors to rediscover our sense of adventure by going on four specially curated shopping trails – Orchard Road Trail, Haji Lane Trail, Bugis Trail and Sentosa Trail – to discover first-hand unexpected finds and the amazing deals that GSS has to offer.
- Orchard Road Trail – the ‘Style’ trail from high-street fashion clothes & jewellery to beauty products
- Haji Lane Trail - ‘Off-the-beaten-track’ trail from authentic cuisines to one-of-a-kind unique design outfits
- Bugis Trail - ‘Indie’ trail from cafes showcasing local music talent to indie brand retailers
- Sentosa Trail - ‘Family’ trail for everyone of all ages in the household

I will be trying out one of the trail this weekend with my wife and son using our new MasterCard PayPass card. Stay tuned for updates.
