Do you like to look for freebies in Singapore? Well, I spotted something interesting recently. It is a vending machine that give away freebies. The vending machine is called “Auntie Sam” and you can find one in East Point Mall, Hillion Mall, Jurong Point, VivoCity and Waterway Point. The exact address can be found at the end of this post below.
Auntie Sam was innovated by this company called Elitez Ptd Ltd which aims to reinvent the traditional way of sampling with a self help model. Auntie Sam is a brand new sampling experience providing full sized samples through a vending machine.
So what exactly can you get free from the vending machine? So far, I have redeemed
- Super Coffee Mix (3 in 1)
- Gold Kili Kopi C Kosong
- Carlsberg Alcohol Free Wheat
How to Sign Up and Redeem?
Using the concept of tokens, you exchange the tokens for the sample that you wish to redeem at the vending machine. Tokens are credits to redeem samples. There are two types of tokens:
- Free – issued weekly (e.g. every Monday)
- Premium – purchased, referral, promo, refund, giveaway.
- Go to https://www.auntiesam.sg/
- Sign up using your mobile number.
- On the vending machine, select the item you wish to receive.
- Scan the QR code that can be found under “Samples” section of the website. 1 token will be deducted.
Free token will expire if not used within the week, thus the maximum balance for free token is capped at 1. To redeem samples that require more than 1 token, you would need premium tokens to do so.
If you want more tokens, you can sign up for their premium plans. Bojio plan is free and by default, while Shiok plan is at S$0.99/week. You may select from 1/4/12 weeks of subscription for Shiok plan – 1 week (S$0.99), 4 weeks (S$2.99) and 12 weeks (S$7.99).
