As bona fide shopaholics we love the adrenaline rush that kicks in when an online store we shop at e-mails us an exclusive code or discount, or just lets us know that they’re having “their biggest sale to date”. If you’re anticipating the next time that happens, well, you won’t have to wait long as November 11th, also known as Singles’ Day, is coming soon.

Known as the biggest online shopping day in the world, it’s the only time when brands and e-commerce websites go all out with their promotions and offers. Once 11.11 comes and the price of the item you’ve been eyeing for the past week, month, or year drops, get ready to snatch it up.

So whether you’re planning to stock up on your favourite beauty products or looking to tick off a few items from your holiday wish list, read below why you should make all those purchases during 11.11!


Huge discounts

11.11 is often compared to the West’s “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” sales, so if you’ve been wanting to make a drastic purchase, do it on this day when brands go all out with their discounts and offers.

Tip: Cart in all the things you want to buy a few days before November 11th, and when the day comes, look out for exclusive discounts like how Lazada will give out an 11% off storewide promotion, as well as a gift with purchase. Not only will you be purchasing items you love for less, but you’ll receive extra freebies too!


Bigger cashback

Something that physical shopping can never give you is cashback. Websites that offer money back when you shop online exist; and they offer bigger percentages on Singles’ Day. The best place to get cashback is from Shopback. So let’s say you were to shop at Lazada on 11.11, you’ll actually receive more cashback as they’ve collaborated to bring shoppers more bang for your buck.

If you want to reap in the benefits of extra cashback by shopping at Lazada and are already planning your Singles’ Day wish list, we recommend you go for LANEIGE’s promotion sets that come with amazing gifts with purchase such as LANEIGE Multi-Cleanser Set (SGD 81), with 30% savings, and LANEIGE Good Night Sleeping Beauty Care (Water Sleeping Mask) Set (SGD 42), with 31% savings, as they offer you a chance to try out a brand’s bestselling and top-rated products, and cost less to buy!
