Straits Times readers have until next Wednesday to sign up for a special subscription package which, apart from giving access to the print and online editions, offers a chance to win a trip for two to a dream destination.
Over the last two months, booths have been set up around Singapore offering gifts and entry to a lucky draw to new subscribers to the All-In-One (AIO) package.
Therapist Rae Neo, 23, one of the drive's youngest subscribers, has been reading the paper for a decade. "I chose the AIO package because my family of four can browse the news conveniently on our smartphones even if we may not find time to read the print version," she said.
New subscribers to the AIO package stand a chance to win a trip for two to their dream destination or a retreat at Resorts World Sentosa.
Logistics manager Charlotte Toh, 42, said that while the lucky draw was attractive, having the paper readily available to her family members was what mattered.
Subscription drives at three locations
Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) is holding subscription drives at various locations till Wednesday.
The Straits Times' (ST's) offerings include the Print-only package and All-In-One (AIO) package, which comprises print, smartphone, tablet and Web versions of the paper. The All-Digital package gives access via smartphone, tablet and Web, while the One-Digital package offers a choice of smartphone, tablet or Web subscription.
Subscribers can also opt for bundles such as ST and The New Paper, or ST and Lianhe Wanbao.
Upon signing up, readers can choose a gift, depending on the duration of their subscription. A Panasonic air purifier, Panasonic rice cooker and Philips handheld vacuum cleaner are gift options for a three-year subscription.
Those subscribing for two years can choose from a Panasonic stain-removing toothbrush, Samsung Gear VR virtual-reality device, Jawbone Up2 fitness tracker and a YI Smart Dash in-car camera.
The drives will be held at Waterway Point, The Kidz Academy till Sunday; 1855 Wine & Whisky Week, Suntec City Tower 4, Atrium East, Level 1 till Wednesday; and Hougang Mall (food fair) till Wednesday.
The promotion is valid until Wednesday. Those interested can visit stsub.sg/win or call 6388-3838 for details.
"The AIO package makes it easy for my children to log in and access the digital version of the paper when they need help with their projects," she said.
Besides The Straits Times All-In-One subscription, readers can sign up for ST-New Paper or ST-Lianhe Wanbao bundles.
Mr Foo Ming Yann, 50, who owns a construction firm, found the latter bundle convenient for his family. "I have been a reader of The Straits Times for close to 37 years and I also like to stay connected with my mother tongue. My wife and I regularly read the Chinese paper as well," he said.
"After my last subscription lapsed, I was on the lookout for a package that had both a Chinese and an English daily, so this was the right choice for me."
