SINGAPORE, 26 May 2011 – Shoppers will have more reason to shop Singapore brands this Great Singapore Sale (GSS) as GET SINGAPORE gives them an even wider range of shopping options. In addition to great in-store MasterCard discounts, GET SINGAPORE has expanded its presence in the digital space with an online mall carrying well-designed and high-quality merchandise from Singapore brands. The brand collective, which is fast gaining traction in Singapore and internationally, is also expanding its existing product categories to include food items.



GET Shopping now!
GET Shopping (http://www.getshopping.sg) is Singapore’s first online mall that carries a wide variety of products from various Singapore brands. Slated to launch on 3 June, the shopping site currently features over 70 products from various Singapore brands, ranging from accessories, apparel, gift ideas and food. To kick start the GSS shopping fever, GET SINGAPORE will be offering free local shipping from 3 June to 24 July 2011[1]. Online shoppers from Singapore will also receive a free TravelPAC laptop bag, whilst stocks last, for purchases above S$200.

Meena Mylvaganam, CEO of GET SINGAPORE, says, “The internet has proven to be a powerful platform for us to brand Singapore. Through statistics from our GET SINGAPORE web portal, we saw interest for Singapore brands and their merchandise grow to over 100 countries in the past year. People are impressed by the variety, creativity and quality of these brands and merchandise, which are conceived and developed in Singapore. As such, we are earmarking our third year with a foray into e-commerce, leveraging the online platform to bring Singapore brands straight into the hands of both local and international shoppers.”



In 2010, GET SINGAPORE ran a social media campaign during Christmas, with GET GIVING, a Facebook gifting application that saw almost 30,000 gifts exchanged virtually. It also re-launched its official website, to provide a better browsing experience and more information about Singapore brands. The revamped site saw monthly visitors and traffic more than triple.



GET Food too!
Shoppers will also have a wider variety of Singapore brands to choose from this year, as GET SINGAPORE moves into the food category for the first time. The first GET SINGAPORE food brand, cacao7, is the company behind the world’s first low-carbohydrate organic chocolate. cacao7 also offers barbecued pork (bak kwa) served on dark chocolate, a uniquely Singaporean answer to bacon chocolate.


Other categories of brands at GET SINGAPORE are accessories, apparel, cosmetics, gifts, jewellery, travel and wellness. Singapore retail brands that have an interest in joining this initiative can contact GET SINGAPORE at info@getsingapore.sgfor more information.




GET Discounts with MasterCard!

Shoppers can enjoy discounts up to 50% as well as freebies such as free gifts and shopping vouchers when they use their MasterCard at stores of participating GET SINGAPORE brands. To sweeten the deal further for tourists, they will be able to redeem a free I♥SG laptop protective sleeve from TravelPAC[2] with a minimum $100 charge in a single receipt to MasterCard at participating brands.
