Get more bang for your buck

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 four online shopping platforms offering the best bargains and promotions around.

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 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 per cent off your first purchase, then enjoy further promotions by buying makeup, skincare and CNY gifts at tax-free prices. In addition to the savings of up to 60 per cent off, shoppers are also able to earn Changi Rewards points and use them to offset online purchases instantly. Learn how to shop at here.


ést.lab's new and improved OptimaLift A+ Intelligent Eye Revitaliser 2.0 available on KrisShop

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—at present, the CNY period entitles shoppers to $38 off and a set of KrisShop red packets with a minimum of $100 spent. For Valentine’s Day, have your gifts wrapped and delivered along with a fresh bouquet at an additional $199. Duty paid alcohol are 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.
