RECEIVED! > Free Voucher: $10 retail voucher + Souvenior USS Madagascar Promo

Mdm Cheapo went to USS and spent a great weekend there! With my parents and siblings! *so that I will have no regrets in my life* (think TPL... *lol)
What is the best part? - The USS tickets were free! (thanks to Maybank 1 month back, charge & redeem promo)
AND we got 3 S$10 retail voucher - once again Thank you Maybank! This was claimed using the Madagascar Movie Ticket Stub... did I mention the movie tickets were also redeemed from the charge & redeem promo by Maybank! How can i NOT love Maybank!!!

Free Movie, Free USS day passes, FREE $30 retail voucher, FREE keychains!
Unforunately the retail voucher cannot be used for F&B that was a bummer BUT this gave us the best motivation to buy overpriced USS merchandise.The 3 x $10 retail voucher can only be use individually per transaction so we get to buy 3 different items. (Hey I'm not complaining my family loves shopping) 

Here's what we got:
Mum got a keychain after Tranformer ride, the ride was FANTASTIC! I know the keychain is a decepticon (bad guy), well mum says the pointy ear one looks nice. She has always been a renegade. ($11.90)
Ah boy really liked the erm very duh looking Gingy soft toy. He went ballistic over it. *When I say ah boy, though he is a youngest in the family, lets just say he ain't exactly a 12 yr old.* ($16.90)
Sis on the other hand was the sanest of them all. She got a Madagascar mug (functional) in her favorite color. It was also the only design that had a popup imprint. ($11.90)
*prices quoted were before using $10 voucher.

The souvenir we got was a Gloria the Hippo keychain. In the keychain there's a small notepad inside for writing, retails for $6.90. There was only one design available so we got 3 of the same thing. This would be nice for a little girl, which I have nobody to give to. Anyone interested to have it? Drop me an email at

Free $: Standard Chartered pays for YOUR shopping this GSS!

OK, Mdm Cheapo never believed in banks promos like this. Never! Why? Because I never won or heard anybody wining before. However, I would always sign up for it because well, I AM Mdm Cheapo. 

But now, I am a changed lady... changed.... I am a Believer! *Think Shrek song*

When I saw the sms on my hp last night while I was already in bed. I couldn't believe what I was reading... Free! Free!!! Free shopping. *Dang* I should have bought more! 
If you have a Standardchartered card, sms the following:WIN<space>16-digit Standard
Chartered Card number to 77222 If you do not have a standardchartered card... what are you waiting for? They even give you $80 cash back for the new credit card. 
Everybody loves GSS! Mdm Cheapo loves GSS! Love'it!

RECEIVED!> Free Sample: Stay Pretty!> Genifique (Lancome)

Mdm Cheapo's hp battery was flat when I passed by Isetan yesterday! I was so distraught as I needed the sms to redeem the Lancome Genifique 7-day trial pack! How how how?!?!?!?!
Then an idea struck! AH Lau ah~ pass me your handphone. I then quickly went into my blog, looked for the Genifique post and registered Ah Lau for it! In the mean time I distracted Ah Lau by entering Harvey Norman. What's with men & electronics? I truly do not understand, come'on a tv is a tv is a tv, all the TVs look the same to me but hey that bought me more than a few minutes. The redemption sms came in! Hurray! Then I calmly annouced, oh let's drop by Isetan on our way down. =) *mwahahahaha* Well thanks to my quick wits, here's the 7-day trial pack. The counter staff requested that we filled in a short form, requesting for email & hp details. Then advised that each 1ml pack should be used twice, day & night. After 7 days, the skin would be radiant! 

Delivery: Sms received in 2 minutes, self collect at any Lancome Counter
