Trust us, Singles’ Day is going to be crazy. The Chinese shopping holiday created by Alibaba is spreading like wildfire in Singapore, with local e-commerce stores slashing prices on 11 November. 

Because we want to help you get the best deals, we’ve listed down all the Single’s Day sales in Singapore outside of Taobao, Tmall, or Aliexpress. We’ll be updating this list daily until 11 November. Follow SingSaver.com.sg on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to know!

1. Lazada Online Revolution 2016

As a countdown towards Singles’ Day, Lazada launched mini games like the Wheel of Deals, a spin-the-wheel game that awards discount vouchers. You can use them from 11 November onwards.

Wheel of Deals will allow you to win only one voucher per day, but you get unlimited spins each day. You’ll probably land on “Early Deals” placeholders a bunch of times, which will then scroll your screen down to show you discounts on some random items.

But don’t get distracted, though – just keep spinning until you eventually get a voucher. Don’t forget to screenshot your discount code once you get one!

There’s also a Midnight Voucher, a puzzle that will spell out one letter a day over 10 days, which when put together, will form an exclusive discount code. If you manage to collect all the letters/digits, You’ll get S$15 savings on 11 November. (With “V” being the letter for Day 3, we’re betting the code will be ‘November11’.)

Helping to whip you up into a buying frenzy are 11 Special Deals, which feature 11 discounted items daily, drawn from a different category each day. So far, the three categories for November 1, 2 and 3 are Home, Computers and Laptops, and Mobiles and Laptops, respectively, and we spotted branded desirables such as an iPad Pro and an HTC One Plus.

Lazada’s daily special deals are available for each 24-hour period only, so they’ll be gone forever once you miss them. But c’mon, we all know the real discounts are happening in a week’s time on 11 November. Nonetheless, Lazada’s mini games are a fun way to get consumers warmed up for the real deal (no pun intended).

How to Make the Most of It

Collect as many vouchers as you can over the next few days, so you can use them on as many purchases as you want. Take note, though, that you can only use one voucher per purchase, so use your vouchers strategically.

And finally, hold your horses. 11 November is when the buying frenzy will truly begin. Last year, Lazada had discounts of up to 90%, so bide your time wisely. In the meantime, plan your purchases in advance so you can torment yourself with anticipation, while making sure you don’t get derailed by impulse buys.

If you have a Citibank card, you can get 15% discount (capped at S$20) with the code CITIOR16. But you’ll have to be fast though, as only the first 450 qualifying shoppers can redeem this code. In case you missed that, check out these other Lazada promo codes you can get from a credit card.

2. 11.11 Singles’ Day Sale at Shopback

Discounts mean you pay less, while cashback gives you more money to spend on your next purchase. You can get both discounts and cashback during Shopback’s 11.11 Singles’ Day Sale.

Judging by the early deals released by Shopback, Singaporeans are in for a treat come 11 November. Higher cashback deals are already being put on the table, featuring big players in hotels, flights, and fashion.

Shoppers who buy directly from China can also get cashback, as the site has partnered Alibaba to offer up to 11% cashback on transactions involving Taobao, Tmall and Aliexpress.

So if you’re considering joining the Chinese populace via the nation’s most popular virtual marketplace, now would be a great time to sign up for a Shopback membership.

How to Make the Most of It

Shopback’s premise is simple – you get cash rebates for every eligible purchase. So getting the most out of the 11.11 Singles’ Day Sale is simply a matter of looking out for the best deal on the purchase you want to make.

Shopback is also advertising Tmall and Taobao’s Hongbao giveaway, which lets you grab virtual dollars (in Chinese yuan) you can use during your 11 November shopping spree.

If you’re savvy enough, head on over to Taobao.com and Tmall.com to give the game a try. But don’t blame us if the promotion’s cutesy game mechanics give you a headache.

3. Deals, Games and Discounted Shipping with Ezbuy

Ezbuy is one of the most popular freight forwarders which help Singaporean shoppers buy and ship direct from China. For 11 November, they’re offering discounted shipping rates, so you can get even more savings on your total shopping spend.

Besides shipping discounts, you can also collect vouchers for savings, or take advantage of several early deals.

If you’re a MI fan, you’ll want to look out for ebuy’s exclusive deals on their bestsellers. Discounts are slight when we last checked (7 November), but we’re sure they’re just gearing up to slash prices as we approach the big day.

How to Make the Most of It

To start with, head on over to ezbuy.sg and register for an account. You’ll instantly get a voucher for 15% off your first international shipment with them. You can use this discount immediately with ezbuy’s early deals to do some early shopping.

After logging in, don’t forget to check in (via their website or on their mobile app) to receive your daily allotment of eCoins, which you can then use to play the daily jackpot. The top prize each day is an iPhone 7.

On 11 November, ezbuy is giving out free shipping for the first 1kg of your package. Thereafter, you’ll receive 20% off shipping for the remaining weight.

Additionally, you’ll be receiving a waiver of ezbuy’s agent fees (normally 4% to 8% of total transaction cost), so go ahead and opt for their Buy-For-Me service. You’ll enjoy the convenience and assurance of having an experienced agent shop on your behalf, without having to fork out extra fees.

Do note, though, that the above offers are only valid on orders submitted per user ID. You’ll also have to make and pay for your orders from 0000 hrs to 2359 hrs, 11 November.

4. Up to 75% off SASA cosmetics

One-stop cosmetic specialty store SASA is joining the Singles’ Day party with an online sale offering discounts of up to 75%!

How to Make the Most of It

SASA’s deal is refreshingly straightforward: Discounted prices across a wide range of products that (as far as I can tell) covers you from head to toe.

However, the discounted rates are only available for online purchases, and you’ll be re-directed to SASA’s official store on Qoo10 to do your shopping.

Consider making a bulk purchase for items you use regularly to capitalise on the reduced prices. If a brand or product you’ve been curious about is also on discount, now would be a good time to pick it up for a try.
