Even as leisurely travel for Singaporeans is essentially non-existent, there’s still a way for us to reap the benefits of tax- and duty-absorbed shopping from the comfort of our couch—and with just a few clicks of a mouse. iShopChangi, the online tax- and duty-free store of Changi Airport, is running a seven-week marathon of deals where you can enjoy up to 60% off on over 8,900 offers! Each week, a specific category of products will be highlighted for limited-time-only deals.
We are now into Week 5 & 6 (21 September to 4 October 2020), and this means Wines & Spirits is the name of the game.
If you’re curious about what some of the irresistible deals are, they feature popular brands such as Roku, Auchentoshan, Yamazaki, Balvenie and more, but let’s start with showing off the Sakura Sparkling (S$11.90, U.P. S$19) (available from 24 to 30 September 2020). With 6% alcohol content and an uncommon “sakura flavour”, it has a pleasant fruitiness and lingering aftertaste, and is best served chilled.
For my fellow G&T fanatics, Hendrick’s Amazonia Gin will be flying off the shelves at only S$82 (U.P. S$126.60). What sets this bottle apart from their traditional formula is that this is an exotic Global Travel Retail exclusive limited release.
It’s a bright and tropical gin, which not only ‘accentuates the existing cucumber and rose elements of Hendrick’s Gin, but also reveals tropical flavour characteristics inspired by the native Amazon flora’. Bonus; receive a complimentary Hendrick’s tote bag with every two bottles of Hendricks’ Amazonia Gin purchased, while stocks last!
Whisky aficionados, we’ve got you, too. Sit back and nurse a luxurious dram of Hibiki Harmony Japanese Whisky (S$135, U.P S$179) (available from 24 September to 11 October 2020). We’re sure you’re familiar with Japan’s most highly awarded blended whisky, so there’s no need to emphasise what an unmissable deal this is.
You’ll also be delighted to find an Auchentoshan 21-year-old + Legent Whisky (Bundle) (S$199, U.P. S$430) (available from 1 to 7 October 2020) at a whopping 54% discount!
We certainly didn’t forget the beer drinkers; from 8 to 11 October 2020, there’s a limited offer on Suntory The Premium Malt (24x334ml) (S$99, U.P. S$155) which is great for stocking up if you’re planning a celebration at home really soon.
Bargain hunters will rejoice in these extremely attractive prices as well as knowing that you can get an extra S$20 off your purchase if you use code ‘CHEERS20’ for S$20 off $250 spend on Wines & Spirits products, till 31 October 2020. Hungry for promo codes? There’s an additional ‘CHEERS8’ code that entitles you to 8% off (discount capped at S$50), with no minimum spend required, also valid till 31 October 2020.
If all these goodies still haven’t excited you, there’s a new way to chase away the Monday blues, with iShopChangi’s ‘Monday Mania’. S$118 worth of flash vouchers will be released every Monday, 10am, during this seven-week period with the following offers:
- S$5 off with code ISHOP5 (*min. spend S$88)

- S$50 off with code ISHOP50 (*min. spend S$488)

There’s even an iShopathon LIVE occurring every Thursday at 10pm, which is available on their site. Highlights include exclusive 15%, 20% and 50% off promotional codes, which you can apply sitewide, and only available during the 40-minute ‘LIVE’ segment. Try your luck in their giveaway, which features over S$1000 in prizes, and even if you aren’t the lucky few, there’s a steal for everyone in their Flash Deals (with live shopping).

spend a minimum of S$288 in a single order. If you’re a Maybank cardholder, you’ll also enjoy 3% rebates on points:
