This year is a special year as it marks the 50th year of National Service in Singapore. Since 1 July is SAF day, there have been promotions annually during this period to reward past NSmen and existing NSFs. One of the most widely publicised promotions is the free usage of bus and mrt services today on 30 Jun (see Straits Times report here). Of course there is a catch – you need to wear your SAF uniform, and you need to tell the station manager at the train stations to open the gates and let you in.

The number of promotions for SAF day seem to increase year after year, probably since merchants find it a useful tool to promote themselves as well. The full list of promotions is available here.

We have ploughed though the list and shortlisted 5 of our favourite promotions:

  1. Free entry to Activesg gym and swimming pool on 5-6 Aug

Have you used up your free Activesg credits (worth $100) ? If you do not know what is it, then check out my old post in 2014 (yes, and the promotion is still valid) and sign up for it!
