We don’t know many other investments which can promise a 187% to 348% return on investment but the Casio Fukubukuro Lucky Bag does! With National Day fast approaching in Singapore and, as we know, it heralds a brand new season of gift-giving and Casio swag… Ok not really but Japanese tech brand Casio (proud creators of the G-Shock and the pocket calculator, among other things) is offering up its own spin on things with the Fukubukuro Lucky Bag in celebration of National Day Singapore 2017. Yes, Papa’s got a brand new swag bag and we just had to look inside…

National Day Swag: Casio Fukubukuro Lucky Bag

So, what-the-what you might ask and that’s really a fair question. It’s basically a swag bag filled with what else but Casio swag in the form of a G-Shock GA-710, a printed G-Shock tee, a stainless steel G-Shock tumbler and an honest-to-goodness camouflage tote swag bag. Yes, there is a bag in a bag here and some lucky people might find a Casio FR10 camera in that swag bag. We did say it was called a Fukubukuro Lucky Bag so some folks who get it really will be the lucky ones.

Here’s the thing about the Fukubukuro Lucky Bag, well fukubukuro bags in general: they are worth more than their price tags. In the case of this Fukubukuro Lucky Bag, the price is $188 (at G-Factory stores from today) but the value ranges from $353 to $655. Yes, the return on investment works out to be  187% to 348%. If that’s not a good deal then we don’t know what is. It’s all reflected in the fukubukuro name, with fuku meaning luck or good fortune and fukuro meaning bag (that’s all in Japanese of course). In Japan, these mystery bags are a part of a popular tradition.
