Mark your calendars for 27 November 2020 because that’s the day we succumb to the darkest parts of ourselves, venture into the deepest parts of our wallets, and indulge in a relentless day of shopping.
Following the Singles Day sales is Black Friday, made popular in the United States as a major retail event that comes right after Thanksgiving.
In Singapore, it started gaining traction after the rise of online shopping, as fiery discount hunters went from stomping over each other at physical outlets to camping out in front of their computer screens. While it’s known for the abundance of tech deals, retailers in other shopping categories from fashion to hospitality are getting in on the action as well. After all, it sets the tone for the rest of the year-end sale season (Cyber Monday, Boxing Day, 12.12 etc).
Here is a compilation of this year’s Black Friday deals and promotions in Singapore that you should look out for. And while you’re at it, check out our snazziest SingSaver Black Friday Deals (26-30 November).
