Annual POPULAR Members Sale Returns Islandwide & Online
Technology may have taken over the world, but there’s still something about physical books and pens that you can hold that tablets and phones just can’t replicate.
As much as we love our e-readers, nothing beats flipping through the crisp pages of a printed novel that still has that new book smell. Similarly, typing may be faster, but jotting down notes with a marker is a great way to add personality and get inspired.
Book and stationery lovers on a budget will be thrilled to learn that POPULAR will be having its annual Members Sale with 20% discounts storewide very soon.
And for the very first time ever, the sale is happening islandwide at all 27 outlets, as well as online, from 24 to 26 Jun 2022.
With gadgets, stationery, and books at a steal, there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a working adult or a student. Here are some of the great deals you can expect at the sale.
POPULAR sale has exclusive PAW Patrol books & stationery for the little ones
Parents with young children would know that PAW Patrol is one of the most popular cartoons these days.
Knowing how much the kiddos adore these cartoon canines, they’d be the best way to instil a love for reading, especially with PAW Patrol books on sale at 20% off.
Since the kids already enjoy watching the TV show, they’d surely love reading the stories too. You can even reward them with some exclusive, themed bottles for finishing the books instead of spending all their time on mobile devices.
From educational flashcards that make learning fun to colouring and puzzle books, parents will find everything they need to ignite their child’s curiosity and creativity.
#BookTok recommendations to help you hit your reading quota
Of course, the kids aren’t the only ones who can reap benefits from the sale, as there’s something for the grown-ups too.
Folks who’ve been delaying their resolution to read more books can start with #BookTok recommended titles to get up to speed with stories that are trending among the TikTok community.
For the unacquainted, #BookTok is an online community of TikTokers who review and discuss the books they have read. These titles often go on to become bestsellers, so checking them out now might give you a fantastic headstart.
Dive into the captivating narrative worlds of Madeline Miller’s ‘The Song of Achilles’ or E. Lockhart’s ‘Family of Liars’ and find out just what’s causing these dramatic reactions on TikTok.
To turn quiet reading sessions into quality family time, you can also get kid-friendly reads like the National Geographic Kids Almanac 2023 and various movie tie-in books.
Once you have the whole fam’s noses up in their books, you won’t have to stress about what to do together over the weekends.
Study essentials for the new school term
Fun activities aside, the June holidays are sadly coming to an end, which means that students will be heading back to school soon. If there’s one thing that can get them excited for their return, it’s shiny new stationery and desk accessories.
Writing essays or doing exercises need not be dull anymore when you’re jotting them down in a POP Bazic A4 Lecture Pad, which comes in a set of five with different quirky covers.
Any student would know that notes can get a little hard to read sometimes, so a good lamp like the Philips Donut Clip LED Desk Light will be a huge saviour.
It clips right on the edge of the desk, leaving tonnes of space to spread all the school books and stationery out for efficient mugging.
Students taking the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) in particular would be in ultimate mugging mode with the exams approaching.
To prepare well in advance, assessment and guide books will come in very handy.
The book is designed to help students remember, apply, and reinforce what they learned in school through bite-sized daily practices.
This makes them a lot easier to digest, and the scheduled exercises for each day of the week will encourage consistency instead of last-minute cramming closer to the exam date. Remember — study smart!
Gadgets & IT products for smarter working & studying seshes
Whether you’re curling up a book or settling down to do school revisions, you could definitely do with some relaxing background music to enhance the mood.
Establishing the right ambience is key, and you can do just that with the compact yet powerful Creative Stage Air V2 Soundbar.
Look forward to filling your room with the crystal-clear sounds of your favourite tunes — you might even be tempted to get up and dance every now and then.
As the heat builds up – from your enthusiasm or just Singapore’s weather – you can turn on this Air Circulator Fan to keep you cool.
While the 20% storewide discount does not apply to Gadgets and IT products at the Members Sale, there will still be many tempting promotions on audio devices, laptops, and household appliances to look forward to.
To sweeten the deal, customers who spend S$250 and above on gadgets, IT products, and home appliances will get S$38 cashback.
