The Great Singapore Sale (often abbreviated as GSS or Malay: Jualan Raksasa Singapura, Chinese: 新加坡热卖会, Tamil: மாபெரும் சிங்கப்பூர் விற்பனை) is a shopping event that happens annually in Singapore.[1] Although it is called a sale, the Great Singapore Sale is in fact an event that is organised by the Singapore Retailers Association,[2]and co-organised by stores and malls to promote the tourism industry in Singapore.

In 2013, MasterCard Singapore launched the Princess Singapore Campaign where they collaborated with famous Singapore bloggers [3] to promote the initiative. That year, over US$1.5 billion was spent by MasterCard Cardholders during the Great Singapore Sale 2013. [4]
