Tips for shopping at Sitex 2019
Here’s sage advice on how to make the most of your SITEX 2019 trip:
Know where you’re going
The exhibition area is massive —it’s possible to end up spending the whole day wandering aimlessly and never finding what you’re looking for, and only stumbling into it if you are lucky. OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it certainly won’t be easy getting through the crowds, which are huge, especially on the last two days of the exhibition (Saturday and Sunday). So, your best bet is to download the visitor floor planand plan your path.
Set out a budget
It can be tempting to buy the coolest gizmos and gadgets on display, especially when attached to these magic words: discount or sale. Still, you don’t want to be stuck with buyer’s remorse. Simply draft out a plan of how much you can spend and what it is you want to buy. This way, you can avoid making impulse purchases and overspending.
Compare prices of electronics
Bring your internet-enabled phone with you to quickly check and compare prices online to see if you are really getting the best deal. You can also do this ahead of time and bargain for the lowest price.
Inspect your package
Check your items at the point of purchase to make sure that it is working properly. If for some reason, you can’t test out the item —find out what the return policies are. If there are significant costs/inconveniences to bear when returning, decide if the purchase is worth making at all.
Pay with your credit card
To speed things along (as payment lines are very long) and to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with not having to carry wads of cash around in an insanely crowded space; use your credit card to make payment.
In addition to these benefits, a good credit card also offers things like high cashback and purchase protections that can reimburse you in case your item is damaged or gets stolen, which is incredibly useful when shopping at fairs.
Just make sure to pay off your bill within the grace period to enjoy interest-free convenience and rewards.
Most items are small enough to carry with youbut there may be some buys that require inconvenient lugging, like a 65-inch TV, for instance. If cost-effective delivery is available, do yourself a favour and consider it. Otherwise, bring a friend to help out and have your transport prepared. Again, imagine waiting for a taxi, among hundreds with a 65-inch TV in hand…

There are some obvious limitations with this option. For instance, some of the items you might be interested in may not ship to Singapore. And if it does; the delivery costs might shave off/contra your savings.
Use the right credit card for SITEX 2019, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday deals
If you’re going cashless at SITEX 2019 or spending online for Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, consider using a credit card that rewards your cashless habits with cashback rewards! The Standard Chartered Spree Credit Cardis a good online shopping card; it gives 3% cashback on online spend in foreign currency and on all vPost spend.

With it, you’ll receive reimbursements if you find a lower price (up to S$1,000 price difference) for the same item on another website within 14 calendar days of the date of purchase (with terms). This could really come in handy. Remember that time you excitedly bought something on sale online, assuming you got the best deal, only to later find out that another site was offering an even lower price! We’ve all been there…
Here’s wishing you safe and happy shopping days ahead!
