In celebration of the nation’s jubilee, Qoo10 is giving away 500,000 vanilla cones in Singapore’s largest ice-cream giveaway.
Huh? Thought National Day over liao. But nobody is complaining. Especially when it comes to free Ice Cream. Great for cooling off after weeks of tense debate and warm weather.
100,000 vanilla cones will be up for grabs in the first phase of the campaign, running from 10 – 13 September 2015, with the remaining two phases to be announced at a later date. Singaporean residents can register for a complimentary Qoo10 membership, download the Qoo10 SG, Shopping Talk and Qtalk mobile apps and click to receive e-tickets for 2 vanilla cones per mobile app.
Redemption of the complimentary vanilla cones can be done at the selected McDonalds outlets islandwide by presenting the e-tickets downloaded on any of the three mobile apps to the counter staff.
Qoo10 Free Cone Days is also in the running for the Singaporean record of ‘Most Number of Ice Cream Given Out in Singapore’, which will be audited by the Singapore Book of Records.
So Mai Tu Liao! Head down to http://www.qoo10.sg/freeconedays for your free Ice Cream!
