Deal Alert: 4 May 2020

By Ken Wong - 4 May 2020

Deal Alert: 4 May 2020

The original end of our CB period

This was meant to have been the end of the original circuit breaker period. We take look at some things that can help get us through another month at home.

 

GoG Star Wars Games Sale

May the Fourth Be With You

While it was meant to be the original date for the circuit breaker period to end, May the 4th is also known to gamers and movie fans as Star Wars Day. And to celebrate that, GoG.com is having a sale of up to 75% off Star Wars games! Perfect to take you through another month of CCB.

Everything is here on sale for the next three days. You can be a rebel, an Imperial pilot, Sith lord or Jedi. Live out your dreams as you want. For example, fan-favourite Knights of the Old Republic is available now for S$4.95 from the regular price of S$14.15. Get this now and lead the Republic Jedi in taking on the Sith.

Check out the deal here. But bear in mind the prices shown are in US dollars.

 

Arlo Ultra

The Arlo Ultra is packed with features.

As we stay home, keeping the family and everyone we love safe is also important. Keeping intruders at bay in times of uncertainty or just peace of mind can help everyone sleep better. 

The Arlo Ultra is Arlo's flagship product so they've pulled out all the stops and crammed as many features as they could into it. It packs an 8-megapixel sensor that records 4K UHD video, dual-microphone noise cancellation, a wider field of view, colour night vision, and a built-in spotlight. 

Get a two camera, one base station unit now for S$1,099 and save 8% off the regular price of S$1,199.

We may be in an extended circuit breaker period, but things will get better and we will need some time away to relax and unwind from this stressful period with our loved ones.

Recognising this, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts has launched an Ultimate Getaways Offer with savings of up to 78% depending on the resort chosen, and flexible accommodation dates until 20 December 2021. For example, booking the Cassia Bintan resort would normally cost you S$480 for the same length of time, but you can get it now for only S$140 under this offer.

But take note, this is only valid until midnight the 6th of May 2020, Singapore time. This offer is now available to the public as a 3-Day-2-Night gift certificate that can be purchased at www.banyantree.com/UltimateGetaways.

Steam Golden Week Sale

Some of the titles available during the Steam Golden Week sale

This hasn’t been an easy time for us. Keeping occupied for weeks even at home isn’t always easy and conditions like cabin fever can be ever too real. Fortunately, technology has a way of helping us cope by bringing us to other worlds through entertainment and play.

Korea and Japan are having their Golden week holidays despite still having ongoing cases of Covid-19 and to celebrate this, Steam is having a sale of up to 87% on some titles in their online store. Whether you’re into RTS games, FPS games, love playing in an open-world setting, or want to be the next Lionel Messi, there is something for you here.

For example, you can save 34% off the regular price of S$41 for popular Monster Hunter World if you get it during the Golden Week Sale for only S$27.06.
