Check these out for easier shopping, chance to change lives



FairPrice has enhanced its omnichannel customer experience by offering shoppers the convenience of paying for their purchases across all FairPrice retail platforms and Unity pharmacies islandwide through the FairPrice app.

Cashless transactions saw a 25 per cent year-on-year increase last year, making up more than half of all transactions at physical FairPrice outlets.

The FairPrice app, which is now available for download on Apple Store or Google Play, will include the added functionality from Aug 1 to enable customers to earn, redeem and track LinkPoints when they shop both online and at physical stores, without the need to carry a physical rewards card.

And from Aug 1, the Plus! Rewards programme will no longer require a minimum spend to start earning LinkPoints.

Currently, members have to spend at least $20 when shopping at FairPrice to earn LinkPoints.

This will enable customers with smaller expenditures to maximise point accumulation, providing more savings to a wider pool of customers.

It is recommended for individuals who constantly feel restless, working adults leading stressful lifestyles and convalescence after an illness.
