If you are crazy about Black Friday but aren’t aware of 11.11 or Singles’ Day, you are definitely missing out on all the best online deals and sales!
What started as a day dedicated to celebrating one’s soloness by Chinese university students back in the 90s, is now a huge one-day, (mostly) online shopping event that everyone is looking out for!
Yes, you’re right. 11.11 is chosen as Singles’ Day due to the fact that the date is made up of the most number of ‘ones’ that can appear on a date. 😜
It’s a super easy date to remember, and we love how it’s a day for singletons to spend their money to shop for whatever they wish for (as they don’t have to spend their hard earned money for a significant other)! But of course for those who are happily in love… they are also welcomed to buy anything they desire ;)
So, what are some of the online shopping platforms in Singapore that you should look out for this coming 11.11?
You probably think that you have to be in front of your laptop or stay awake at 11.59pm, a minute before 11.11 to snatch those awesome bargains before everyone else does, but at Lazada, you can do your shopping before 11.11!
You can shop during the ‘presale’ as early as today, so make sure you add what you need in your shopping cart, and check-out on 11.11 to enjoy the exclusive perks!
