If there’s one thing besides food that gets Singaporeans super excited, it’s got to be shopping — especially when there’s a great sale in town.
And, frankly, who doesn’t like some good, old retail therapy to move over the doom and gloom around us? Enter the insane mid-year shopping sales painting our island country red right now.
Typically, the Great Singapore Sale (GSS) is one big annual event you find yourself looking forward to every year. However, with the pandemic shifting plans around, it was decided that GSS would be cancelled this year — a first in the history of its 26-year run. But, hey, worry not. That hasn’t stopped our favourite brands from running online mid-year sales and promotions to keep up the spirit of shopping sprees alive and kicking.
Think brands that normally come with price tags ready to give you mini panic attacks. Now these are on sale for a lot cheaper, making the most coveted items within your wallet’s reach. Here’s our pick of the best products available as part of the 2020 mid-year shopping sales in Singapore.
Last updated on 15 July 2020. Mid-year sales and promotions are subject to change without prior notice.
Sony Playstation 4 (PS4 Slim)
This gorgeous 1TB console set from Sony is a gaming geek’s dream come true.

The $900 console, available in jet black, is currently selling at a cool $449. Bundled with 6 games, snag it before it goes out of stock on Shopee!
Original price: $900

Nintendo Switch Console Gen 2
If you’re looking for a wholesome experience and fun for the whole family, go for this. Nothing like downtime at home with your favourite people. It helps that Nintendo has done a portable console that you can simply plug into your TV, turning it into a home gaming console. However, don’t expect this to match the specifications of a PS4 or XBox One.
Original price: $899
Now selling at: $585
