How can saving a few dollars a day make you a millionaire?

I've heard tha saving at least S$10 a day would make me a millionaire. I am very interested to know why and if this is actually true. I've done my computation and it's really hard to fathom how this would make me a millinaire. Do I just keep saving the money or should I invest the money that I saved?

    This is a long term commitment and it is possible. Assuming that you're a normal person that worked at the age of 25 and retires at the age of 60. Saving $10 a day would give you 10x365x40 which totals to S$146,000. Investing your savings on stocks, bonds and fixed deposits would help you increase your savings by 10 folds which would bring you upto over a million dollars.

$18 for the cheapest one week coverage plan in ASEAN countries.

This is definitely one of the affordable brands and their prices are often competitive with ongoing promos particularly if you’re travelling beyond Southeast Asia. Don’t you think that $27 for a week’s coverage in expensive countries like Australia and New Zealand is really quite a good deal? Now with such low prices you’d think they’d hold out on discounts but not at all, as they currently offer 20% off with the promo code TRAVEL20. That’s $18 for the cheapest one week coverage plan in ASEAN countries.

The level of support and clarity MSIG provides is very reassuring and thoughtful

If you pause to consider its cheapest Standard plan, MSIG travel insurance is actually very affordable after the generous promotional discounts. The level of support and clarity MSIG provides is also reassuring and very thoughtful while there terms & conditions are clearly stated on the site and not hidden away in some remote PDF, and the claims process appears to be pleasant. However, the only cons is that MSIG has made the Standard plan very limited in comparison to the Elite and Premier Plans. Once you compare their coverage, you will definitely feel tempted to upgrade.
