This year’s National Day Parade may have been postponed to Aug 21, but some things about National Day still remain the same — there are still NDP vouchers available for all to enjoy and support local businesses.

There are over 180 discounts and deals available this year, and they're split into seven categories: Education and enrichment, entertainment and attractions, F&B, health and fitness, living and lifestyle, online deals, and spa and beauty.

How to redeem NDP vouchers

Of course, these aren’t physical vouchers we’re talking about — we’re still trying to cope with a pandemic here. These are e-vouchers available on the NDP website. The redemption process is simple: Head to the site, select the voucher you want to use, and flash it at the merchant’s physical retail store; or if you’re redeeming from an online shop, enter the promo code provided.

If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer number of discounts and freebies available, fret not. We’ve shortlisted the best deals for you to start with.

Top NDP 2021 deals

GrabMart: If you’re getting groceries, alcohol or other essentials delivered to your doorstep, there are GrabMart discounts for both new and existing users.

For existing users, there’s 30 per cent off for those who spend at least $25 (capped at $10) — use the code ‘NDPGMART30’ (valid Aug 1-9 only). New users receive 50 per cent off (capped at $8) with a minimum spend of $15 – enter promo code ‘GMARTNEW’ (valid until Aug 31).

TribeCar: Get more bang for your buck if it's your first time using the carsharing service — top up $30 to get $56 worth of credits. Valid for new users who sign up any time from now until Sep 30.

Timezone: Get double the game credits with the game arcade chain’s NDP deal — buy $30 and get $30 more, buy $50 and get $50 more; or purchase $100 and get $100 more plus an additional 500 e-tickets for free. Valid Aug 1 to Sep 30.

The Manhattan Fish Market: Living alone but having two visitors over? Consider the NDP Cajun seafood feast fit for three. It's going at a special price of $52.90, and the meal includes a Cajun seafood bag, three soups of the day and three single scoop ice-cream.

Firefly Photography: If you want a professional photographer to snap photos of you and your family and friends during these unusual times, the photography studio is offering a $10 weekend outdoor photoshoot package. It’s valid for up to five people for a 90-min shoot. Valid until Mar 31, 2022, so there’s ample time even if you wait until after P2HA is over. 

Peach Garden: Bookmark this to use when dining in resumes. Receive a $20 cash voucher from the Chinese restaurant which you can use with a minimum of four people dining in. Valid until Dec 31.

Singapore Cable Car: Two passes for unlimited rides at $56 (usual price $90) — perfect for social distancing. Valid for purchase from Jul 31 to Sep 30.

Hydrodash: There’s 10 per cent off two-hour passes at the inflatable water park — you’ll pay $32.40 per adult (usual price $36) and $23.40 for kids (usual price $26). However, it’s only redeemable from Monday to Thursday, and limited to the first 1,000 redemptions. Valid from Jul 31 to Oct 31. And while we're still in Phase 2 (HA), groups of no more than two participants are allowed, and there should be no intermingling between groups.

LifeSpa: A spa day at wallet-friendly prices, anyone? Pamper yourself with any one of these one-hour treatments for only $30: guasha face lift, Absolute White Pearl Facial Treatment, Stem Cell Age Reversal Facial Treatment, Avocado body massage, Balinese sandalwood body massage, or a geranium body massage. The icing on the cake is a complimentary 15-min treatment for every treatment booked. Valid until Nov 30, 2021 (or Jan 31, 2022 if there are closures due to government regulations).

Lee Mart: Stock up on Korean groceries, side dishes and snacks with 15 per cent off Lee Mart with a minimum spend of $56. Use promo code 5KX8W5H7 when you check out from their online store, or flash the promo on the NDP website when you’re shopping at their physical shop. Valid until Dec 31. 

All ready to shop? Don’t forget, though: All discounts and deals are still subject to the prevailing Covid-19 safe management measures. So trying to redeem a dine-in deal now when restaurants can only do takeaways and deliveries, for instance, would be futile.
