SingTel Prestige

· · · Blog, Singtel

SingTel rewards program used to be called Red Rewards and Red Prestige before they decided to drop the “Red” word last year to just SingTel Rewards and SingTel Prestige.

I was a SingTel Red Prestige member till 31st March 2012 because my monthly SingTel bill averages above S$250 for 6 consecutive months (I have 4 lines under my name). But after March 2012, my bill was less than S$250 per month and I no longer qualify for the SingTel Red Prestige.

OtterBox Commuter Wallet For iPhone 5/5s

The OtterBox Commuter Wallet For iPhone 5/5s is retailing for S$55 in Singapore. The case adds quite a bit of bulk to your iPhone because it gives your iPhone added protection against drops, bumps and shock. It also includes a slider compartment at the back that house up to 3 credit cards.

On the official website, it states that it can hold up to three cards and one bill, however when I tested it, it is not able to hold even a single note after placing 3 cards in (1x EZ-Link Card, 2x Credit Cards). I guess Singapore currency notes are bigger and thicker because of the materials it is printed on.

Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable AAA Battery Pack HR-4UTGB4TM

2 weeks ago, I was helping Li Xiang to look for eneloop rechargeable batteries for her office but to my surprise, I could not find any at all at all major electronics stores in Funan and VivoCity. I was wondering did they leave the Singapore market or their batteries sell so well that all the stores are out of stock (I was hoping the later). Many of my friends and I love eneloop batteries!

But luckily, it was just temporarily out of stock (I hope) and when I went back to Funan’s Challenger last week, there was plenty of stocks!

Bose QuietComfort 15 (QC15) Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

I always wanted to get the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones also known as Bose QC15 in short because it is one of the best noise cancelling headphones in the market. It is good specially when you travel a lot! Be it via plane or by bus, the QC15 will be able to cancel out some noises produce from the vehicle’s engines. I also heard from my colleagues that it is a life saver in the plane when you have a crying child on board.

I did not get the Bose QC15 in Singapore because it is way overpriced. The official retail price is S$479.
