Deal Alert: The I-miss-my-travel edition

By Ken Wong - 28 Aug 2020

Deal Alert: The I-miss-my-travel edition

The I-miss-my-travel edition

For months we’ve been stuck at home to stop the spread of Covid-19. And while we’ve seen a drop in community infections in Singapore, other countries around the world have seen their second phase of infections set in.

This has put an end to any thoughts of being able to have a quick getaway overseas.

And so, this week we look at what we'd bring with us if we could travel in this “I miss traveling” special.

 

GoPro Hero8 Black Holiday Bundle

Whether you want to go on an action-packed holiday or take things slow and record the scenery as you slowly pass by, you need a camera. Even better if it can be used underwater, or as an action cam as you do some extreme sports.

The GoPro Hero 8 has HyperSmooth 2.0 video stabilization technology. This works in all resolutions and frame rates, features a Boost mode and has in-app horizon levelling. Plus, the bundle has everything you need to record your life, whether you want a smell-the-roses holiday or one that is action-packed. Save 12% and get it now for S$599 when it normally costs S$680. Remember to check the online store for additional discount vouchers. Plus, if you get it now, you’ll also receive free shipping!

Sony WF1000XM3 True Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones

When you’re trying to sleep on a plane or block out the sound of the crowd when trying to talk to loved ones overseas, there are times when silence is important.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 has Active Noise-cancelling and also uses a new Bluetooth chip that does simultaneous transmission to both left and right earbuds instead of the conventional left-right relay transmission for lower latency. It features a new HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN1e that boosts battery life and gives it quick charging capabilities (90 mins battery life after just 10 mins charging). You can get six hours of playback with ANC on, and a full 24 hrs of playback using the case. When the regular price is S$326.10, save S$90.20 when you buy it now for S$235.90.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Keeping in touch with family and friends is important when travelling. While any phone will do, having something new is often nice.

Launched early this year, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has an all-new, foldable form factor. It unfolds to give a full 6.7-inch AMOLED screen and is powered by a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor and 8GB of RAM. There is also 256GB of storage and like many of the latest smartphones, no headphone jack. Buy it now for S$1,798 and save when the regular price is normally S$1,998. You’ll also get a free gift with your purchase.
