The Ultimate Comparison of iShopChangi at Changi Airport Duty-Free Singapore (DFS) Prices and Discounts!

2 min read

Despite reaching the airport 2 hours prior to boarding time, I never get enough time to look around the duty-free stores available in the Best Airport in the World, our very own Changi Airport.

Recently, I found out that you are able to do your shopping BEFOREHAND at iShopChangi and collect them at the airport or have it delivered to your place!

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post and links are not affiliated. How else can we bring you unbiased content? 😉

I will save you on the PR statements that you would’ve seen many times about iShopChangi. To quickly summarise, you are able to shop on iShopChangi only if you are:

  • Leaving Singapore
  • Arriving into Singapore (Beauty and alcohol section only)
  • Transiting at Singapore

Do note that you can only start purchasing your purchases from 1 month to 18 hours before your flight.

SOMETIMES, it is not always the case. This is one example:

Beauty – Perfumes, SK-II, Estée Lauder, Kiehl’s

Personally, I head to duty-free to stock up on Kiehl’s facial cleanser as it is so much cheaper at S$28.80 which lasts me for more than a year you guys. Super worth the money.

Not much difference in the food prices available on iShopChangi duty-free, only about 6% cheaper. Purchasing of food items are only available for collection in the departure hall of Changi Airport as well.

However, it is extremely convenient if you:

  • Forgot to get souvenirs for your friends back home or;
  • Are planning to stock up on bak kut teh especially if you are travelling back to abroad for work/school.

With all the amazing things we just said about iShopChangi, we are still not done that it almost sounds like an advertorial (Promise, it isn’t). iShopChangi is also available on Shopback as well, so you are able to get cashback while shopping beforehand.
