SINGAPORE, 6 July 2011 – Singapore Changi Airport today unveiled the first finalist in its ‘Be a Changi Millionaire’ shopping competition - Ms Lira Wilson, a 47-year-old Filipina working in Melbourne, Australia. She is the first woman to ever reach a Changi Millionaire final - the inaugural Changi Millionaire Draw, which was held in January this year, had six finalists, all of whom were men.

Lira’s love for shopping, and especially for Salvatore Ferragamo designer handbags, has given her a one-in-seven chance to be the next Changi Millionaire. As a Changi Millionaire finalist, she is already guaranteed S$5,000 cash, a three day/ two night stay in a luxurious hotel in Singapore, and return airfare to Singapore for the Grand Draw at Changi Airport in January 2012.

Lira qualified for the competition, one of the biggest ever Singapore shopping promotions, simply by spending more than S$30 at Changi Airport and was selected at random from more than 200,000 entries to compete in the final. In January next year, she will join six other finalists to compete for the grand prize of S$1 million cash. In addition to the monthly winner, four other lucky shoppers were also picked as the weekly winners for the month of May, winning for themselves S$1,000 each. There are two winners each from China and Singapore.

This year’s ‘Be a Changi Millionaire’ Draw, which runs over 30 weeks from 1 May to 30 November 2011 is one of the two shopping promotions launched to celebrate Changi Airport’s 30th anniversary.


Hailing all beauty aficionados! The ‘Fabulous Fridays’ deals during the month of July centre on the theme ‘Perfumes & Cosmetics’ and five popular beauty and skincare products will have 30% slashed off their regular airport retail prices. Kick-starting the string of hot deals last Friday (1 July) was SK-II’s Cellumination Serum Essence, which saw the 150 promotional pieces available in the public area sell out in less than two hours.

Other exclusive deals for the month include Lancome’s Trio Juicy Tube Collection Voyage (travel-exclusive pack) and Laneige’s Water Sleeping Pack Ex. Not forgetting the men, Calvin Klein’s Eternity Aqua EDT for Men (100ml), which normally retails at S$86 at Changi, will be sold at an incredible price of just S$60.20.

To enjoy these exclusive deals, shoppers just need to make a minimum purchase of S$30 using their Visa cards or S$60 by other means. Travellers can purchase the products at the central Perfumes & Cosmetics store in the Departure/Transit Lounge at each terminal. Non-travellers can grab the great buys at an event booth set up in the public area of Terminal 3 Basement 2.
