Guess who is turning 60 this year?
No, I am not referring to Barack Obama, nor am I referring to the Disney animation 101 Dalmatians.
I am referring to Singapore’s own National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), which was incorporated back on 6 September 1961.
Over the last 60 years, NTUC has been at the forefront when it comes to workers’ welfare, helping to uplift their wages, as well as improve their work prospects through training and legislation (you can learn more about its history here).
As part of the celebration, NTUC Enterprise has launched a series of union member deals up to the end of 2021.
The deals span across various social enterprises under the group, such as FairPrice Group, NTUC First Campus, NTUC Health, NTUC Income, NTUC LearningHub, Mercatus and MoneyOwl.
Total estimated savings these deals will bring union members? A cool $20 million from now till the end of the year.
What’s more, NTUC Enterprise also opened a newly revamped Kopitiam outlet at Plaza Singapura, where union members can enjoy $0.50 coffee or tea all day, every day as part of union member deals!
But enough chatter, let’s take a closer look at the union member deals .
FairPrice’s 50% Super Savers
Of course, no deals from NTUC would be complete without discounts from FairPrice.
From 22 April to 2 June 2021, union and Plus! members get to enjoy 50 per cent off six selected items for six weeks at FairPrice’s retail outlets.
Not a union member yet? FairPrice has also extended the promotion to its online platform, though the six items available weekly at 50 per cent off will differ from those at its stores.
The selected items will be refreshed weekly to give consumers a wider variety of choice during the promotional period.
$0.50 Beverages at NTUC Foodfare and Kopitiam
As mentioned earlier, union members stand to enjoy $0.50 hot kopi/teh all day, every day!

Touted as the largest continuing education and training centre in Singapore, NTUC LearningHub (LHUB) is letting union members experience 60 of its online courses for a mere $6 (U.P. $26) through their LHUB GO Grow60 deal. That is literally $0.10 a course!
