Friday, I was at IKEA Singapore (Tampines) with the family to purchase some furnitures.
At the check-out counter, the IKEA staff was kind enough to let us know about the IKEA Singapore DINE FOR FREE Promotions – If you spend more than S$150 in a single receipt at IKEA for your IKEA merchandise, you can DINE FOR FREE (same day – single receipt)
I was thinking, this sounds too good to be true, I mean, if it is really what I think it is, I could, like, buy S$200 worth of items at the IKEA Restaurant, and I could offset all these when I purchase the IKEA Furnitures. (our total bill for the furnitures was more than S$200)
Here’s the banner that I saw at the IKEA Restaurant :
We were a bit skeptical about this promotion, it could mean that, maybe the offset means, if I were to spend S$200 at the Restaurant, I would just need to pay S$50 (ie. S$200 – S$150) at the checkout counter, or it could really mean (S$200-S$200 if it was really true!)
We don’t see a lot of people buying loads of (extra) food at the IKEA Restaurant, so we are not really sure how this promotion actually works..
So, just to be safe, being typical Kiasu (scared to lose) and Kiasi (scared to die), we just spent about S$80 at the restaurant.
And in the end, it turned out that we really got S$80 offset from our furniture purchase! But, we are still not sure if this promotion would mean that if we were to spend S$200 on food, we will get the full amount offset..
You need to dine at the IKEA Restaurant first and everything have to be in a single receipt (ie. you cannot “borrow” receipts from others and combine them for the offset)
The transactions and receipts needs to be on the same day
This promotion is happening from now till 30th June 2013!
Ok, anyway here’s the official text and Terms and Conditions on the banner :
