Do I have your attention yet?
These are but some of the initiatives from NTUC Enterprise’s $50 million support package, aimed at helping Singaporeans manage the cost of living with holistic support in the ongoing COVID-19 environment.
NTUC Enterprise announced the support package on 22 June 2020. The package has increased more than two-folds compared to last year’s $20 million, comprising various initiatives from its group of social enterprises.
At the announcement, NTUC Enterprise Group CEO Seah Kian Peng stated: “2020 has been challenging year with the heavy impact brought about by COVID-19 on the daily lives of Singaporeans.
“Through this comprehensive support package, we reaffirm our commitment to moderate the cost of living for all Singaporeans.”
Membership Has Its Privileges
Part of this support package includes a series of new initiatives especially for NTUC Union Members, totalling just under $12 million.
Not only is this offer making a revival every Wednesday between 1 July to 31 December 2020, but you can also now get a whole breakfast meal for just a dollar (or $1.50 if you are not an NTUC Union Member) as well.
Pioneer Generation and Merdeka Generation members can also enjoy this offer for just a dollar.
The offer will be available at all Foodfare and Kopitiam food courts and coffee shops, between 3 July to 31 August 2020.
Other initiatives by NTUC social enterprises include specially priced groceries, complimentary $50,000 LUV term-life coverage for the first year, dental care kits and more than 100 complimentary online courses to encourage upskilling.
Extension of Discounts – Daily Essentials
To further alleviate the pressures of cost of living, the group is also extending several discounts and programmes for another six months to support not just its members, but all households and seniors.
One of them is FairPrice’s commitment to hold prices of 100 house brand everyday essentials until 31 December 2020.
What that means is that FairPrice will maintain the prices of these 100 items, regardless of changes in supply, socioeconomic factors and external factors that could affect food prices amid this current volatile climate.
Launched in March 2019, the initiative was initially supposed to run till 30 June 2020, and the six-month extension is estimated to provide an additional $6.7 million in savings to shoppers.
Extension of Discounts – For Seniors and Members
NTUC Enterprise will also extend the validity of its various programmes to provide more cost savings to seniors.
The Merdeka Generation, Pioneer Generation and senior citizens will continue to enjoy their discounts at FairPrice from Mondays to Wednesdays, for another six months until 31 December 2020.
