SINGAPORE — Supermarket chain NTUC FairPrice announced on Tuesday (28 December) that its discount schemes for Pioneer and Merdeka Generation members, as well as Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) Blue cardholders, will be extended for another year to 31 December 2022.

The extension of dedicated discount schemes is available at all FairPrice supermarkets, FairPrice Shop stores, FairPrice Finest outlets, FairPrice Xtra hypermarkets, FairPrice On Wheels and Unity pharmacies.

It will help these eligible customers save an estimated $11 million next year.

The Pioneer and Merdeka Generation seniors discount schemes are estimated to cost FairPrice more than $10 million, while the CHAS Blue discount scheme - introduced in July - is projected to cost more than $730,000.

Eligible customers must present either their Pioneer Generation, Merdeka Generation or CHAS Blue card at the cashier or self check-out counters. These discounts are valid for purchases of up to $200 per transaction per day.

FairPrice is also extending its Pioneer Generation Proxy initiative until 30 June next year. It enables the family members of seniors to use their Pioneer Generation member cards, enabling them to stay home during pandemic.

To enjoy the discounts, family members can present the member cards of their kin at all FairPrice outlets on Mondays and Wednesdays.
