She thought the World Cup mugs were "quite cute" and so decided to redeem not one, but two of them.
And even though she was a Germany fan, Miss Saw Hue Meng did not mind that she got two Brazil mugs at the 7-Eleven outlet at Icon Village on Gopeng Street, near Tanjong Pagar MRT.
The 23-year-old Singapore Institute of Management student redeemed her mugs at 4.30pm yesterday.
She said: "I might try to get one of each design. I read The New Paper daily and I feel motivated to collect the mugs.
"I buy both the morning and afternoon editions, so I get at least two coupons a day."
It is also convenient for her because she usually buys TNP at 7-Eleven.
To take part, readers have to cut and collect 10 coupons from TNP sports section, which prints one coupon a day. The last coupon will be printed on July 31.
The 10th coupon has to come from a copy of TNP purchased at the 7-Eleven (except those at the airport) where the redemption is made.
There are eight mug designs, each featuring the flag of a team in the World Cup, including Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands and Argentina.
The mugs, which are also printed with the official 2014 Fifa World Cup logo, will be given out at random. They also have numbers printed at the bottom.
Each Wednesday, starting tomorrow, a winning flag and number combination will be announced in TNP, so keep a look out for them.
Three lucky readers each stands to win $300 and a World Cup jersey of his/her choice.
Readers have to redeem the prizes on the Thursday of the week following the announcement of the winning flag and numbers. Redemption is to be made at the 7-Eleven store at Icon Village on Gopeng Street.
If any of the three winning mugs are not redeemed each week or if any of the prizes are unclaimed, the cash prize will snowball.
There is also a Grand Draw, which will be announced on July 23. The reader who has the winning mug for this draw will win $1,000 and a jersey of his/her choice.
