SINGAPORE, 27 December 2022 – NTUC FairPrice announced today that it will be extending its ongoing discount schemes for members of the Pioneer Generation (PG), Merdeka Generation (MG) and Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) Blue cardholders for another year. This extension will last from 1 January to 31 December 2023. FairPrice gave out over $11.5 million in savings through the PG, MG, Seniors and Chas Blue discount schemes this year.
Mr Vipul Chawla, Group CEO, FairPrice Group, said, “Moderating the cost of living has always been a key focus for FairPrice. Amidst the uncertain economic climate, FairPrice is committed to ensuring that our customers are able to have access to household essentials and the extension of the discount schemes looks to help alleviate some financial burden on daily essentials.”
