Share with other Parents or Go Back

If you notice an endless stream of family-themed promotions on Facebook, Instagram, and other channels, you are not mistaken! With Covid-19 still playing out, many merchants are going all out to attract families back this March School Holidays! 

We been sharing family and kids friendly events and experiences for close to 4 years, and for the first school holiday period, we see promotions after promotions aimed at families. Many of these are actually quite great promotions, which will probably not happen again. #notsponsored

We compiled a list of promotions suitable for families, and gave our own star ratings for how good we think the promotion is. Let us know at the end if you agree with us! 

Editor's note: this article is not sponsored, except for BYKidO promotions where we earn from sale of the eVoucher. Information here is gathered from online sources, social media search or press releases.

Universal Studios Singapore: Get Free Upgrade to 6 Month Season Pass (Adult)

The initial outlay puts us off (a family of 2A + 2C will pay $338) but with just 2 visits (and 6 months to keep visiting) will cover your cost.

What we think: Ticket prices to the Singapore Science Centre for Singapore Residents are already quite low, but having 50% off tickets will make it great for visiting some of the other attractions here! Unfortunately, the Omni-theatre is not included.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

What we think: A little confusing as the promotion is happening at different malls on different days, and the timeline is really short. Regardless, it is great to get the extra cashback with so many family-friendly things to do at CapitaLand Malls and the ongoing free parking. 

In fact, we will have given it a higher rating, if not for the next promotion.
