First of all, shop early! There will be so many people crowding the physical stores on the actual day that it would be harder to browse and shop for something you like. Many experienced shoppers shop and even reserve their items in advance before Akshaya Tritiya so that they can just head down, make the rest of the payment, and collect their items. This would save so much time and effort without jostling and squeezing with the crowd.
It is important to look for a reputable seller since gold is a valuable item that is not exactly the cheapest, you have got to make sure that you are paying for what is worth! The purity of gold should be true to the rate you are paying for, and you don’t want to end up paying a high gold rate for an item that is not even real gold true to its stated purity. One easy way to avoid this would be to shop for items with Singapore Assay Office (SAO) hallmark. SAO is an independent 3rd party testing service in Singapore that checks and certifies gold purity.
Last but not least, be patient. Be patient if you face some queue or waiting time when shopping for your gold as you shouldn’t be getting angry or upset on such an auspicious festival. After all, everybody is trying to bring some prosperity and happiness into their lives on this special day!
