Singaporeans love Hello Kitty, and scalpers are making full use of this knowledge.
FairPrice has a bunch of Hello Kitty offerings up for grabs till Mar. 1, 2023.
Scalpers are trying to earn a quick buck by flipping some of these items.
Here's a look at what's available:
Mahjong Solitaire Set - 152 Tiles
Foldable Light Weight Umbrella
350ml Glass Bottle with Figurine
Bamboo Handle Serving Set- 2 Pcs
Ceramic Cup with Coaster and Silicon Lid
Hello Kitty Mahjong sets sold at up to S$888
With Chinese New Year (CNY) around the corner, it's no surprise that the mahjong sets, which are only available at FairPrice Xtra stores, are especially popular.
As a result, the Hello Kitty collectibles are being resold on sites such as Carousell.
The set costs S$268 plus six bonus points, or S$308 plus three bonus points.
One bonus points is awarded with every S$30 spent in a single receipt. Purchases must be made in-store.
FairPrice urged shoppers in a Facebook post on Jan. 1 to "be wary" of purchasing such sets as they are "unable to verify the authenticity or quality of resold sets".
