A Singaporean’s Complete Guide To SAF Day Promotions

2 min read

Today is SAF Day.

Or NS Recognition Day – depending on whether you’re an NSman, NSF, or Regular.

To the other members of the public, you’re probably more aware of it this year thanks to the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s epic fail when they used an image of a People’s Liberation Army Navy soldier instead of one of our finest from the Republic of Singapore Navy.

Yeah… You gotta see it to believe it.

Notice the COMPLETELY different uniform, camo AND rifle?

And seriously, no encik is going to allow his men to get away with a stray string trailing out of his jockey cap…

I’ve lost count of how many “Whole lot touch that tree and come back” I’ve had to endure because SOMEONE in the platoon doesn’t understand what it means by ‘Smartest 4’ (read: the most perfect No. 4 uniform you have in your locker – with the freshest colour, no stray strings, all badges in place – that is only worn for parades or important events).

I mean, I know it’s the day when everyone in Singapore SUDDENLY remembers to thank Singaporean soldiers for their service by offering a myriad of SAF Day discounts and promotions on everything (read: smells like marketing at its finest)…

But c’mon… At least feature the correct soldier in your ads so it doesn’t feel like you’re just jumping on the SAF Day sales bandwagon for the sake of it.

Anyways, the Coffee Bean X SAF Day promo is still on and they’ve even put up a new ad.

But seriously… ‘personnels’?

Anyways, apart from Coffee Bean, there’re plenty of other SAF Day discounts and promotions to be had!

To make it easier for your reference, I’ve put together this compilation of SAF Day deals in gratitude of all servicemen and servicewomen’s service and contributions to our nation’s defence.

NOT that I was looking for the best deals for myself…

Heh heh.

Okay… I was.

But you all also get to benefit what…

Electronics & IT

Been eyeing a pair of new JBL earbuds for those particularly emo nights when you book in with the boys? Well… You’re in luck.
