Carousell is a relatively reliable platform for Singaporeans to buy, sell and trade items. A quick search will bring you to beauty products, apparel and electronics among other tangibles. Remember that while you’re looking to buy, there is someone looking to sell, so prices are usually affordable and negotiable. Discount haven Groupon also has an app that’s worth a browse when you’re on the go. Sometimes you can even come across a bargain almost too good to be true. Sugar is also a discount app that’s localised to eateries within your vicinity. In the same format, users purchase seasonal vouchers for later use. Who knows, you might find a place you already frequent and have the same meal for a fraction of its usual price!

Real-time disruption alerts are certain to be great lifesavers too. Uber is giving taxi companies in 380 cities a run for their money with location-based booking and seamless credit card deduction without the typical surcharges.
