In Asia, November 11 is Singles Day and more importantly, the day where China sites such as Taobao dish out bargains galore. With a little patience and budget, there are tons of deals to consider and snatch. From past experience, many of these deals even come with free shipping.
Next up are Black Friday on November 24 and Cyber Monday on November 27. More options are available on these days as many online stores worldwide are also tapping in to these occasions.
Of course, December is the true shopping month — an entire month dedicated to or rewarding by buying stuff for self and loved ones as the year winds down.
Before you hit the sites, do note these tips:
- Know what you want or risk spending time browsing aimlessly.
- Know which sites to visit. Prepare a list if prioritise if you have many.
- Know your credit card deals. Many credit card companies are offering cashback or other incentives for using their cards. It’s time to grab some of these while shopping.
- Know the delivery options. This is especially important if you’re planning to buy them as Christmas gifts. You don’t want to go for free shipping only to have the product arriving after Christmas or worst yet, in the next year.
