Reasons to be Excited about 11.11 Single’s Day 2019

🏃🏻‍♀️ No Need to Break a Sweat

Can you phantom the thought of sitting home and waiting for your delivery? I love unboxing my parcels so much because I often forget what I buy and it becomes a surprise to me – like opening a present from Santa Claus. With all the prices slashed, it will be difficult for you to resist adding items to your cart on 11.11 sale any way! If you are planning to secure big and heavy items like home appliances and household goods, delivery is certainly value-for-money. Without the need to lug it home from IKEA or FairPrice anymore, doorstep delivery is definitely the best thing that happened. Think about all the time and energy that can be better spent catching up on Netflix.

👍🏻 Get Only The Best Deals

This is something that every kiasu Singaporean should do. If you don’t, you’re missing out big time! Shopping online definitely gives you better steals since you can compare prices all over the internet. Especially for gadgets and home appliances, you can find them easily on Lazada and Qoo10, or even AliExpress for even cheaper prices. Compare prices and product specifications to get more bang for your buck. On top of 11.11 promotions, there are also plenty of credit card deals and coupon codes you can use for participating online stores including Zalora, Sephora and ezbuy that can be found on our site. Best way to save money!

🙅🏻 No Hard-Selling

Do you recall purchasing the S$150 coffee machine with 99 different functions that you don’t remember? If so, you must be a victim of persuasive salespeople. Cognitive dissonance is surely a real thing and it’s no fun. That’s why I prefer to home at the comfort of my home – no judgmental eyes, no hard-selling sales people hovering around me. Just me and my cart filled with 101 items in preparation for 11.11 Single’s Day.

📝 Make Informed Choices

Reviews by other users can be found on major brands including Sephora, Lazada and Qoo10 that allows you to make informed choices. Some shopping sites even have photos that can be posted on the reviews that can help you visualise the product easily. Honest reviews from past users can also help you to decide whether or not the product suits you or is to your liking. You can also judge the seller’s credibility by reading reviews. This can help you determine whether or not your transaction will likely be a pleasant one. Avoid bad sellers and inferior products at all cost!

🕵🏽 Hide No More

We know that some things are better done in privacy. If you have something you want to purchase in-stores discreetly, chances are that nosy onlookers will be judging your choice of lingerie while the male cashier might look a little fidgety. Get out of those awkward situations, now! *cringe*

Even if you don’t shy away from judgmental onlookers, online shopping also allows you to place an order for gifts without the risk of the gift-receiver finding out. Many online retailers also offer delivery to someone else’s address upon request. What better way to surprise someone than a gift to their doorstep?

Gearing Up for 11.11 Sale

Now that we have listed so many reasons to shopping on 11.11, here are some tips on how to prepare for, gear up and secure the best deals for 11.11 Single’s Day sale. IT’S WAR TIME.

🥇 Early Bird Gets The Worm

It’s time to put on your kiasu. Start browsing the online retail websites and add the items to your cart! Compare prices, product specifications, product reviews and seller feedback to ensure that you know what you are getting. Add all the temptations that you have been eyeing into the cart, especially that latest PlayStation console and the gaming chair for your optimal gaming performance.

👩🏽‍💻 Eye The Big Ticket Items

Just so you know, the 11.11 sale only happens once a year. Prices are slashed, and it’s even better than the Black Friday sales! Avoid spending your money on big ticket items before 11.11, as prices are guaranteed to be massively discounted on Single’s Day. Instead, save up and wait till 11.11 to get the expensive items on a huge discount.

⌛️ Keep Your Eyes Peeled

We update our website for the ongoing credit card promotions and promo codes that you can use in online retail sites. Be sure to maximise your savings by checking our site frequently for more discounts before checking out as you might be able to find a good deal!

Stay tuned! More promotions to come for Single’s Day 11.11 2019! 


About Singles’ Day 11.11 Sale 

Ever wondered why the 11.11 sale is also known as Single’s Day? Apparently, it was founded by China’s university students in 1993 who wanted to prove a point about the social pressures to be in a relationship. 11 November was then chosen as the Single’s Day (or anti-Valentines’ Day) as the digit 1 was used to symbolise a person who is single.

These days, Single’s Day is more commonly known as the day for snagging up all the mega shopping deals. But it wasn’t until 2009 that Alibaba began offering jaw dropping discounts on luxury goods, electronics, jewellery and even home appliances! This induced a worldwide commotion for everyone when other major brands like Lazada, Zalora and ezbuy jumped on the bandwagon too. Lazada launched the 11.11 online revolution sale themed “Shop the Universe” last year which was a month-long shopping campaign.

When you remove the middlemen (distributors, retailers, etc) from the supply chain, and connect consumers directly with wholesalers/manufacturers, what you get is inherently cheaper prices for products that would have otherwise cost you about 70% more. Combine that with the convenience of online shopping and swift last-mile delivery services, it’s no wonder that retail spaces are now suffering.

The 11.11 sale originally served the Chinese market through the e-commerce platform Taobao, but international brands gradually hopped on board the bandwagon after seeing the amount of success it garnered. Last year alone saw almost 42,000 brands taking part in the frenzy, and collectively served 207 countries and regions.

There is even a Countdown Gala event to promote the Singles’ Day sale. Last year’s event featured appearances from superstars like David and Victoria Beckham, American band OneRepublic, and founder of Alibaba Group Jack Ma himself.

If you’re already familiar with this hyped-up event, then you should know how messy things can get when you don’t plan ahead – so mark your calendar for the 11 November, prepare your monstrous list of items, and watch the prices get slashed by 50% or more when the date arrives. Happy Shopping!

What to expect in Singapore?

If you have come across Taobao’s website, you would immediately realise that the WHOLE site is in Mandarin, which might be a problem for the diverse audience we have here; or if you are confused by their Taobao’s local terms. Fortunately, the gods of e-commerce have smiled in favour of us, and have delivered unto us the likes of Ezbuy or Peeka – agents of Taobao that serve to make the whole shopping experience easier for us by providing a suite of services such as warehouse/storage, shipping/handling and a much appreciated full English website.

Be warned, though – there are companies out there who claim to be such agents and charge you a ridiculous sum for services like credit card surcharge, handling fee, or agent fees. It is best to do your due diligence before deciding on an agent to do your shopping with.

Breaking the Glass Ceiling

The best thing about this shopping frenzy is that it is not limited to Taobao alone. As we’ve mentioned earlier, local brands have noticed the Singles’ Day 11.11 bug spreading like a pandemic in Singapore and have latched on to it as well. Brands such as Lazada and Zalora have taken advantage of this date and the ideology behind it to advertise their own promotions as well, which by standards are pretty noteworthy.

What Lazada did during the 11.11 season in the previous years was to introduce its own “Lazada Online Revolution”, which saw a pre-event giveaway of vouchers and rebates which customers could use during the actual Singles’ Day sale. The real cookie was dropped on the date itself when Lazada introduced discounts of up to 90% on its items.

Among all these incredible deals, after we’ve stockpiled all the necessary and frivolous items in our cart, somehow we still get stuck at the checkout page when we finally glance at the shipping cost (although it’s funny how we would spend hundreds of dollars willingly, and hesitate at a $10 shipping fee). Let’s quell this conundrum – you won’t have to worry anymore as most vendors would offer FREE shipping during this bonanza period. Let’s hope this offer will be extended to this year’s 11.11 Sale as well.

Get Ready to Shop this Singles’ Day 11.11 Sale 2019

This largest online shopping festival that has taken the world by storm; by comparison, has generated more merchandise volume than the United States’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. If this online shopping spree was taken offline, you’d probably have a long line of queue from Pasir Ris to Tuas (ok exaggeration much) just to get their hands on the best deals.
