It’s hardly groundbreaking news that Singaporeans are skilled shopaholics — if shopping were an Olympic sport, we’d clinch the gold every year. But in the midst of a global pandemic, online shopping has taken over as the leading way to get your retail therapy fix. Like any seasoned shopper though, you’ve been trained to save the big-ticket purchases for the huge end-of-year sales. It’s a chance to treat yourself, especially after we’ve worked hard all year. Retailers everywhere have heard us and collectively decided that recurring digits in the date is good as any reason to have a sale. Lucky for us too, because Shopee will be bringing us the 10.10 Shopee Brands Festival this October.
From 21 September to 10 October, there’s gonna be a whole bunch of promotions, and you’ll be able to get your hands on products from Shopee Mall brands such as Samsung, Dyson and Nintendo at a discount. What awaits you are Million $ Discounts deals, daily 25% cashback, and daily midnight flash sales. All Shopee Mall products come with a 100% Authentic Guarantee, free shipping and 15-day return policy, so you can shop away without a worry. Shopee Mall has seen a 70% increase in new brands opening official stores on the platform this year, so you’ll always be spoilt for choice. Whether it’s to treat yourself or to get a headstart on your Christmas gift shopping, these are some deals you won’t wanna miss.
In these uncertain times, some of us have found respite in the (virtual) world of gaming. Get on the level of your favourite Twitch streamers and up your gamer, well, game. If you’ve been thinking of upgrading your gear, now’s your chance. The Armaggeddon Hawk 1650-R5 Customized MATX Gaming PC is a completely customized PC that has everything you need and comes with a warranty period of three years.
Wholesome games like the wildly popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons have been the game of choice in this pandemic, only playable on the Nintendo Switch. Lucky for you, the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite will be on sale during Shopee’s 10.10 Brands Festival. Add it to your cart now and look forward to shaking some virtual trees, and probably your butt in glee at the great deal you’ve just snagged.
Speaking of butt-shaking, fitness nuts will be happy to know that the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 4 Global Version Fitness Tracker Wristband will be going at a price of SG$29.90 (U.P. SG$55). It’s the perfect exercise buddy, with a 24/7 heart rate tracker and six workout modes. It’ll track the basic number of steps, distance and calories burned. It also works great with both Apple and Android smartphones.
If you’re an Apple fan, you’d already know that the brand hardly ever does discounts. This time, Shopee is offering you a rare deal not to be missed. The 128GB version of the iPhone 11 will be on sale this October and it’s the perfect time to upgrade. Still not convinced? What if we told you the Apple Airpods Pro is on the list as well? That’s right, the popular wireless earbuds are going to be priced at SG$279 (U.P. $365) and comes with a one year warranty from Apple.
Dyson’s known for their vacuum cleaners but their foray into hair styling tools is just as impressive. Their Airwrap Styler, in particular, has gotten a lot of hype on social media for its ability to breathe life into limp locks using low heat. If you’ve been holding back on getting one for yourself because of its price, maybe a 28% discount is just the push you need to treat those tresses, as the complete set will be going at SG$619 (U.P. SG$699).
It’s not just gadgets that are on sale either. There’s something for everyone, from products like the Konny Baby Carrier and Nestlé NAN OPTIPRO 3 Milk Powder bundles for new parents, to skincare products such as the Lancome Genifique eye cream and the Aprilskin Real Calendula Peel Off Pack Twin Set. All of these products and more will be available during the 10.10 Shopee Brands Festival and it’s worth keeping up with the different promotions to get more bang for your buck. Be sure to also look out for the Midnight Brand Flash sale from 12am-2am daily to enjoy time-limited deals.
You’ll want to grab your phone and set a reminder for 21 September too, ‘cause it’s the 10.10 Shopee Brands Flash Sale Day. For one day only, you can snag discounts of up to 80% off and Shopee Seller Vouchers on limited-time deals at different hours. We know camping at the computer at different hours sounds tedious, but setting those alarms will be worth it. Guess it’s a good thing your phone’s already close by.
Timings: 12am, 10am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 5pm, 6pm, 8pm, 10pm, and 11pm.
If you’ve read this far, you’re in for a treat ‘cause we’ve also got an exclusive promo code for you. Enjoy $7 off with a min. spend $15 with the code <SHOPEE1010CC> at checkout, valid for new Shopee users only. Happy Shopee-ing!
