Starting The School Term with POPULAR

Monday, June 27, 2016

When it comes to books and stationary, POPULAR book store will almost be the first shop that comes to our mind. Now with POPULAR Online, shopping for books is so much easier because everything is laid out nicely for you to scroll through!

What I Liked

1. Wide variety of English books
There are over 3.5 million English titles for you to choose from and for this GSS, over 800 titles are on 50% off, exclusively on POPULAR Online only

Take note though, while there are language books like Japanese dictionaries, Easy German etc, you will not be able to find story books in Mandarin, Malay or Tamil. For those, you would still need to go down to POPULAR stores.

2. Storewide 20% sale with no promo codes required
There are loads of discounts going on on POPULAR Online. Between now to 3 July, you get 20% storewide discount regardless of the books you purchase (except promotional or nett priced items). This is on top of the already discounted price so it was a really great deal.

Bought these books for the children - Dylan is learning to read at the moment so I have been buying him so many first readers! The usual price is $5, but I got them at only $3.80 each after the 20% discount I enjoy.

You also get to enjoy an additional 5% off if you purchase more than $100 worth of books!

3. Opt for self-collection or delivery

The delivery fee is a mere $5, I believe it doesn't matter how many books you purchase, it is at a flat fee. If you have a POPULAR bookstore near to you, you can opt to self-collect at their stores to save yourself the delivery fees too.

I guess the only con here is that it takes up to 18 days for your orders to be fulfilled, so if you are looking at some last-minute adhoc purchase, you will still have to visit their stores to get them.


Finding Dory Premium Giveaway Lucky Draw

There are 10 sets of Finding Dory premiums to be given away (1 Adult Tee, 1 Child Tee and 1 poster) to lucky people who purchase any Finding Dory books.


Also on from now until 3 July 2016, POPULAR is holding a Titbits and Stationery extravaganza at Suntec Convention Level 3 Concourse. Shoppers will get to enjoy up to 70% off an extensive range of Stationery, Organic, Healthy and Imported Titbits with other great bargains like the “Buy 1 Get 1 Free” Deal and the “$10 Bundle” Deal.

There are also other fun and enriching workshops, from ice-cream to eco rubber clay making, will also be available at the carnival.

Only less than a week more to go, don't miss these great deals from POPULAR. :)

  1. 20% off all books except promotional or nett priced items? Ayyyy? That would mean no books are at 20% off? woops! Typo???

    1. HAHAHA! I realised the confusion now! I think the press release meant that you can't enjoy 2 promo at the same time - cuz some books are already at 50% discount (which refers to the promotional items) and some books are not applicable for discounts (hence the nett items) LOL. This sounds funny and ridiculous on hindsight!

  2. I love Popular bookstore! I didnt know they deliver, that great! I need to grab the back to school discounts now hehe

  3. Thanks for sharing the information and surely will check them out.

  4. Popular is really my go to stationery shop! I spend so much time in there my hubs gets so bored of it. haha...

  5. Now that we know they deliver, we don't have to waste time going to the store!

    1. They only deliver books though~ if you are looking at stationeries and stuff, you would still have to make your way down. Haha!
