Online shopping is a sport. From strategising rebates and returns to scouring the internet for the best deals, there’s no better way to pass the time than shopping efficiently and effectively. Below, find five online shopping platforms offering the best bargains and promotions around.
No longer just the English arm/counterpart of Taobao, Ezbuy has become an e-commerce giant, a force to be reckoned with. Besides delivering on major sales and giveaways, new features such as EzCoins have also been introduced to help shoppers save on buys. Its upcoming 65EDay will also see steals like voucher bundles, flash deals and goods going for up to 65 percent off.
Check out iShopChangi’s CNY beauty deals here.
Duty-free shopping is still possible despite the limited travel opportunities, and that’s largely thanks to iShopChangi.com by Changi Airport. With over 17,000 products by 700 brands, the online purveyor allows Singaporeans to enjoy plenty of savings starting with sign-up discounts.
Get 15 percent off your first purchase, then enjoy further promotions by buying makeup, skincare and seasonal gifts at tax-free prices. In addition to the savings of up to 60 percent off, shoppers are also able to earn Changi Rewards points and use them to offset online purchases instantly. Learn how to shop at iShopChangi.com here.
Previously a lowkey, inflight duty-free shop aboard the Singapore Airlines, KrisShop has since transformed into an omni-channel retailer offering deals and promotions to travellers and non-travellers alike. Always check out its sales during the festive season—earlier this year, the CNY period entitled shoppers to $38 off and a set of KrisShop red packets with a minimum of $100 spent. Duty paid alcohol are also part of KrisShop’s many ongoing promotions, so check those out here.
Get savin’ with the Lazada credit card.
A local e-commerce giant, Lazada is that one-stop shop boasting effortless shopping and fast delivery. Shop everything from electronic devices to groceries and fashion with the online platform; flash deals, credit card promotions and stackable vouchers are what locals love about the site too. Save even more when you download the Lazada app—first time users will receive a $6 purchase voucher upon registration. Don’t forget to look out for Lazada’s active collaborations like the previous 9.9 LazMall Big Brands Sale and Online Tech Show where early shoppers enjoyed slashed prices on a variety of goods.
Shop the Shopee Premium products here.
It’s easy to get lost in the realm of Shopee, where brands offer low prices, free shipping and best of all—cashback deals. To shop wisely and earn rewards aka coins, you’ll want to play games, purchase bulk orders and even rate your buys. Mark your calendars for the craziest of sales such as the 9.9 Super Shopping Day, 11.11 Big Sale and 12.12 Birthday Sale too. Some even swear by the process of using Shopee via Shopback, although we find the sales and daily vouchers offered by the SEA Group site more than enough on most days.
