Despite the Goods and Services Tax (GST) increasing from 8% to 9% on January 1, 2024, participating retail shops in the public areas of Changi Airport’s four terminals will continue to absorb the GST.

The icing on the cake is a unique shopping experience awaiting those who join the free Changi Rewards loyalty programme.

The Changi Airport”2XGST” Promotion

But that’s not all – for nine exciting days in January, the “2XGST” promotion takes center stage. Shoppers can revel in an additional 9% off their purchases, provided the minimum nett value is S$30 after all other discounts.

As an extra perk, customers spending a minimum of S$60 and using Mastercard via Changi’s digital wallet, Changi Pay, will receive a S$9 Changi Pay return voucher credited to their account. The savings are real, and the opportunities are vast.
