Chinese New Year came early for three lucky ladies last Saturday, 5 January, at Ngee Ann City.

Held at Watsons, three contestants were picked from more than 100 online ad posting entries to participate in a grab-anything-you-want-within-a-minute contest, capped at $1,000 each. All three participants grabbed more than they were entitled to, and had to top up additional amounts when their merchandise exceeded the given budget.

One of the winners, Ms Apple Chua, had gone to Watsons earlier with her sister to recce the store and knew exactly where her desired items were located.

“I feel very lucky to be chosen and I am so happy that I have grabbed so much that I can give my family members a can of abalone each for Chinese New Year,” said Ms Chua, whose shopping bag amounted to $1,036.70.

Ms Chong Hoi Jung grabbed $1,012 worth of Bio Essence products only as she had all along been a fan of the brand and was intending to give the skincare products to her sisters as presents.

“I got to know about STClassifieds at the STClassifieds Feste launch event last year! I must thank STClassifieds for this wonderful Chinese New Year present,” Ms Chong commented.

Ms Tsai Fung Yee, who walked away with a whopping $1,058.97 worth of products, was excited when she was notified to be one of the lucky winners for this round as she feels that Watsons has a wide variety of products which are useful for her and all her family members.

“I read about STClassifieds from the newspapers and the ad caught my attention that I could use it is a free platform to sell stuff. I was pleasantly surprised that STClassifieds offered great reach and a huge pool of buyers as I received an enquiry from an overseas buyer for my brand new headset,” said Ms Tsai.

The final round of STClassifieds 1 Minute Sweep ended with a big bang. Look out for other upcoming events and promotions via or use it to post a free ad to sell any new or used items today!
