Mums, remember the mad rush to get all the kids together, out of the house, to the airport, through check-in and then haul ass through departures just so we have a little time for a spot of shopping at duty-free? Because seriously, how awesome is the shopping at Changi Airport?
But that tiny, tiny, window of time we have to shop, though?
What if I told you, you could pre-order to your super mum heart’s desire; tax-free and duty-free shopping, online from 30 days to 18 hours BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT.
This means you won’t have to shuffle between terminals and shopping aisles striking off that long shopping list while dragging a screaming toddler.
iShopChangi is Changi Airport’s online duty-free shopping destination giving you the option of shopping online before your scheduled flight at up to 40% off downtown prices on beauty products and up to 60% off liquor with an option to collect at Collection Centres in transit prior to your departure or upon your arrival from respective stores at Baggage Claim.
Alternatively, get your loot delivered right to your doorstep when you hit a minimum spend of $380 on selected beauty and electronic items.
Get access to travel and iShopChangi exclusive deals and promotions delivered right to your inbox while earning Changi Rewards loyalty points with instant redemption of rewards points PLUS a 30-day money back guarantee.
And if you’re not travelling but you know someone who is, fulfil your shopping lists through the newly introduced Share A Wishlist service – works just like a gift registry where you have a list (or several) that you may wish to share with travelling friends and family to buy you a little something special from one of your lists!
Pretty nifty, don’t you think?
