The start of 2020 has been a trying year for the world. We have been hit by Covid 19 virus which made its way to Singapore shores since the lunar new year. Many people have reacted irrationally especially when we change the DORSCON level to Orange, rushing to stock up on food and other essentials.
After a week from the level change, I thought it would be good to see if there are any benefits that we can get out from this and lucky for us, there are some great deals which we can leverage on as we get along with life in Singapore.
Deal 1 – Free Parking at 15 Capitalland Malls like Funan till further notice. Shopping centers are hard hit during this period. So it makes sense for mall operators to offer free parking as an incentive to visit the malls. I for one love this offer as parking can be expensive.

Deal 2 – Enhanced insurance policy to cover Covid 19, some insurers have amended their policies to cover Covid 19 and support policy holders with complementary cover. No extra charge, good sia https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/singapore-dbs-chubb-ntuc-income-covid-19-insurance-12443110
Deal 3 – Travel deals up to 70% off in Langkawi. If you are looking to travel, now should be a good time if you dont mind the hassle and are willing to risk it. Langkawi hotels are offering 70% off hotel rates during this period. Not bad eh https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2020/02/16/covid-19-langkawi-hotels-offer-up-to-70pc-discount/1838061
Deal 4 – Today for budget 2020, the Singapore government also announced a series of help package like cash payouts to help families, delay increase of GST hikes, business loans and more. Very good to help every Singaporean in need https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/singapore-budget-2020-10-things-to-know-from-cash-payout-for-sporeans-to-gst-not-going-up
These are just some deals that I found, there definitely would be more, so please feel free to share with me if there are or continue searching to see how you can make the best of this experience.
