All Pioneer Generation (PG) members, Merdeka Generation members (MG) and Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) Blue cardholders will be able to further enjoy savings for another year until December 31, 2022 at all FairPrice supermarkets, FairPrice Shop stores, FairPrice Finest outlets, FairPrice Xtra hypermarkets, FairPrice On Wheels and Unity pharmacies. The discount schemes are not available at the Warehouse Club.

The extensions of these dedicated discount schemes are estimated to help eligible customers save over S$11 million. This is in addition to the S$54 million in discounts given to PG members, MG members, seniors and CHAS Blue cardholders since 2015.

​Seah Kian Peng, Group CEO of FairPrice Group, said, “Our seniors and the less fortunate in our community are vulnerable segments affected by the uncertainties caused by the prolonged pandemic. The extension of our various discount schemes seeks to complement our community efforts to provide financial relief to those affected, ​and at the same time, ​build a more resilient society.”

FairPrice now offers four initiatives to help seniors and low-income families stretch their dollars further when shopping at FairPrice. These include:

To enjoy the PG, MG or CHAS Blue discount schemes, eligible customers need to present their MG, PG or CHAS Blue card, provided by the Government, at cashier counters upon checking out their purchases. Similarly, at self-check-out counters, customers need to select the MG, PG or CHAS Blue discount option. These discounts are valid for purchases of up to S$200 per transaction per day.

As part of encouraging seniors to stay safe by staying home, FairPrice is also extending its Pioneer Generation (PG) Proxy initiative until June 30, 2022. The proxy enables family members of seniors to enjoy special savings as they assist PG members to run their grocery errands. Family members of PGs need to present the PG card of their kin at all FairPrice outlets when they shop on Mondays and Wednesdays.
