On top of absorbing the 1% GST increase for six months, Giant will continue to double down on its promise to keep prices low for consumers through its Lower Prices That Last campaign, launched in 2020 to help Singaporeans cushion the impact of the pandemic.

You can save significantly compared to branded alternatives on key essential products across fresh, grocery, personal care and household items. With Lower Prices That Last, the prices of participating products have been kept stable since 2020, despite inflation and fluctuations in the supply chain.

In addition, Giant also extended its senior citizen discount programme in 2022, committing to a 3% discount storewide for all seniors on all weekdays. This initiative will continue in 2023 to ensure that the more vulnerable groups in Singapore can continue to shop and purchase their daily essentials with peace of mind.

For even more savings, you can sign up for the free yuu Rewards Club and earn points for every dollar spent. The accumulated points can be redeemed for rewards at over 1,000 places including Giant, Cold Storage, CS Fresh, Guardian Health & Beauty, 7-Eleven, BreadTalk, Toast Box, Butter Bean, Food Junction, Food Republic, Food Opera, Thye Moh Chan, Mandai Wildlife Reserve (home to Singapore Zoo, River Wonders, Night Safari and Jurong Bird Park), and Singtel.
