Save money on your last-minute Christmas shopping with these 12.12 sales in Singapore!

Updated 13 December. Some deals are still ongoing, so check them out!

If you haven’t done your Christmas shopping - maybe because you were wondering how to buy the perfect gifts - you should definitely mark down 12 December in your calendar.

Making up the holy trifecta of online shopping mega-sales, (together with Single’s Day on 11 November and Black Friday Weekend sale from 25 to 27 November) the 12.12 sale is another great opportunity to earn discounts, savings and cashback while doing your shopping.

Here’s a run-down of the deals we know of so far. As always, we’ll keep this page updated with more details as we find them, so remember to check back often!


1. Shopback - 12.12 Online Fever

Everybody’s favourite cashback shopping site will give you up to 28% cashback and 80% discounts on 12.12. With its growing merchant partnerships, there are bound to be some great finds in fashion, travel and food.

In the run-up to 12.12, Shopback is having a 12 Days of Christmas-type deal, with one particular product each day earning you S$12 Super Cashback per transaction. Yep that’s S$12, not 12%!

How to Make the Most of It

Stalk the Shopback page for their daily Super Cashback item, and if you see any products you need, go ahead and purchase them.

Not only will you be stocking up on essentials, the generous cashback rate will also help you build up your Shopback account.

That way, you’ll have a ready pool of savings that you can use to offset your online shopping spree come 12 December.


2. Lazada - Online Revolution

Lazada’s 12.12 Online Revolution sale may very well make the stress of leaving your shopping till the last minute worth it.

Capping off a month-long online mega-sale extravaganza that started with Single’s Day, the e-commerce site is already advertising shopping discounts of up to 90% on selected products. We expect more widespread price slashes once 12.12 rolls around.  

If you’re stressing out about what gift to buy for the various people in your life, Lazada has helpfully organised their offers according to different personalities. Check out the Deals Made for You section for some inspiration.

How to Make the Most of It

Get S$5 knocked off your total bill when you spend more than S$50; just use the code FREE5 at checkout.

Another way you can save money is on delivery fees, as Lazada has extended free delivery storewide for economy delivery.

Local merchants are usually able to fulfil orders within 5 days, so if you can find all your Christmas gifts from Singapore-based sellers, you can get all your presents delivered without having to pay delivery fees.

And if you have run out of vouchers, don’t forget you can pick up some more with the Wheel-y Good Deals spin-to-win game.


Finally, make sure to use these credit card promotions for Lazada to save even more on your shopping spree.

The fashion retailer will be having discounts across more than 500 local and international brands, so there’s surely something for you and everyone on your Christmas list. We’re talking discounts and special prices on brands such as Zalora, Aldo, Melissa, Mango, Superdry, Herschel, Topman... And these are only the labels that have been revealed so far.

4. Charles & Keith - 10% off all Regular Items + Free Shipping

Grab all your Charles & Keith favourites on 12 December and you’ll automatically save 10%. That’s because the fast fashion retailer is having a flat 10% off all regular items at its online store.

While it may not be as fun as a sale with deep discounts on selected items, a flat discount model means that everything is that much cheaper. This benefits you whether you’re shopping for just a few items, or going for a whole new look.

How to Make the Most of It

Look out for any articles of clothing that you have been eyeing - the 10% discount may just put them within reach of your budget.

Also, Charles & Keith is giving away free shipping on all orders (standard delivery only), which means your shopping budget can stretch further.


5. Cotton On - 40% off all Online Items

Cotton On is back at it again, with another sitewide sale at a generous 40% off! With a discount like that, it’s hard not to be tempted, especially when you consider that you can find not only everyday fast fashion, but also active wear, footwear, stationery and arts and crafts supplies.

How to Make the Most of It

If you haven’t already. Consider doing all your Christmas shopping at Cotton On on 12 December. With the wide variety of items on offer, the chances of finding something for everyone on your list is high.

Worried about shipping fees? Don’t be, because Cotton On applies free shipping automatically when your order exceeds S$50. This is great for buying multiple items at one go, especially with the 40% discount.

ezbuy-1212-2-min6. Ezbuy - 12.12 Exclusive Sale, up to 70% off

You already know that you can buy virtually anything at Ezbuy, so if you’ve been wanting to go looking for offers, 12 December is probably the best time to do it.

You see, Ezbuy is offering a sample of its Prime service, which gives you unlimited shipping at S$2.99. And when you remember that you can buy anything through Ezbuy - from a crock pot to sofa sets to  an entire bedroom wardrobe - re-decorating your home for Chinese New Year suddenly doesn’t seem that far-fetched an idea.

But how do you navigate the complicated transactions that come with the myriad merchants hawking their wares? What if you don't know Chinese? Ezbuy has got you covered in that aspect as well - the site is waiving all Agent Fees just for 12 and 13 December.

Oh yeah; the site is also offering discounts of up to 70% off.

How to Make the Most of It

With unlimited shipping capped at S$2.99, and waiver of Agent Fees (typically around 4% to 8% of your total transaction cost), you can go clicking on everything your heart desires (check your bank account first!).

Once you’re done shopping, Ezbuy will take over on your behalf, communicating with the seller to check on the availability, quantity and condition of your order before delivering it off to you.

This service is typically chargeable - but not on 12 and 13 December - so hurry and take advantage of it!

One last thing: shop with a Maybank credit card, to get a further 10% off your total bill, no minimum purchase required! While you’re at it, we suggest the Maybank Visa Infinite Card, for 2 air miles per S$1 spent on overseas transactions.

ntuc-1212-min7. NTUC FairPrice - Up to 50% off and Free Delivery

Good ole NTUC is joining the online mega-sale bandwagon with their 12.12 promotion. From 12 to 14 December, you can get your groceries at up to 50% discount when you shop at the online store.

Snacks, frozen foods, detergents for laundry and household cleaning needs, storage containers, personal toiletries… basically all the everyday items you use are on offer, so it’s worthwhile scrolling through the list to see if your favourite brand is going for cheap.

How to Make the Most of It

The convenience of online shopping comes from not having to physically go down to the store yourself. Usually, in exchange, you pay a delivery fee to get your goods sent to your home.

But not for today; NTUC will provide free shipping (worth S$7.49 to S$10.70) as long as your checkout is more than S$80. Just use the code 1212 at checkout.

If you don’t need to buy so many groceries, combine orders with your colleagues or neighbours to take advantage of the free delivery.
