It is National Day next Thursday, and readers of The Straits Times (ST) will get to enjoy a special deal when they sign up for any of ST's subscription packages.
Those who sign up for an ST subscription package from now to Aug 31 will be able to receive the Philips SpeedPro Max cordless vacuum cleaner (right) for just $399, instead of the usual price of $699.
Each subscription comes with a one-year contract.
Designed to provide users with a quick and efficient cleaning experience, the SpeedPro Max has a 360-degree suction nozzle, allowing the vacuum cleaner to pick up dirt even when moved backwards.
Currently, ST offers three subscription packages - Basic Digital, All-Digital and All-Digital + Print - which were rolled out in late February. An ST report last month said these plans saw a sign-up of more than 10,000 people.
To learn more about each package or sign up for this promotion, go to stsub.com/NDP.
Existing ST subscribers will also be able to enjoy this offer by entering their log-in details at the site without committing to a new contract.
Ms Renu Devi, 35, a housewife and an existing ST subscriber, is keen to take up the offer. "This promotion is very attractive. I am also very impressed with the reporters because of the effort they put into updating us with the stories and news in Singapore and worldwide," she said.
This promotion is not only applicable to ST readers, but also those who subscribe to other Singapore Press Holdings newspaper publications, such as Lianhe Zaobao and The Business Times. Previous subscription drives by ST saw subscribers enjoying giveaways and offers of other products.
