Confessions of an Online Shopping Maniac: Why I keep coming back to Lazada and its huge 11.11 sales


If you’ve been caught early in the night camping for those tempting Flash Deals, have collected coupons like they were precious gems or endlessly scrolled the Lazada app until your thumb hurt, well … you’re not alone .

I am an online shopping freak and really proud of it.

Every year, I give in to the charm of taking out my shopping desires from the comfort of my room. As I flex my fingers and prepare for the big shopping festival marathon coming 11.11, I can’t help but be drawn in by the fantastic offers Lazada has in store.

This year, Lazada has seriously upped the ante from last year. From a sleek new car to a sleek million dollar condo. Yes, Lazada has decided to go big this year.

It’s not just about this one huge prize. Shopping enthusiasts will perfectly understand my love for watching live entertainment and shopping events. Being able to interact with my favorite brands while making exclusive offers for 11.11 is almost a sport I’m good at.

This year, Lazada doesn’t just hold an 11/11 sale. It’s a game, a concert and giveaways all rolled into one mega festival.

With prices, offers and live activities like that, can anyone really say no?

The road to the heart of an online shopper

For those unfamiliar with eCommerce, Lazada’s annual 11.11 in November is the main event of the year-end shopping season. Double 11, also known as “Singles’ Day”, began as a shopping festival started by China’s Alibaba in 2009.

It’s no secret that the eCommerce scene is saturated with a lot of sellers these days. Shoppers like me aren’t overwhelmed by a 20 or even 40% discount on products you can easily find across multiple platforms.

Savvy online shoppers like me are looking for new and unique experiences to enhance our time online. So, my interest piqued when Lazada 11.11 offered more than the usual eCommerce platform with lots of games, daily missions, and an extensive flash sales list that makes me want more.

If you remember the 11/11 sales event last year, Lazada involved Korean megastar (“Oppa”) Lee Min Ho as its ambassador. This year, they are keeping us fans hooked with more eye candy. They’ve recruited a K-pop band, SEVENTEEN, and there’s even a concert to watch via the app.

Additionally, Lazada offers shoppers other treats, such as S $ 6 of S $ 60 Lazada Bonus. There is also a hunt for the “Golden Keys” for the million dollar condominium up for grabs.

Lazada 11/11 is making 11/11 of this year a deal to remember, even if you don’t think you will buy anything (although you will probably buy something).

Buy and play and even win attractive prices

Lazada changed the online shopping game with ‘Shoppertainment’, which fuses shopping with entertainment and social experiences.

Playing to win shopping vouchers is one of the best parts of online shopping. I can’t tell you how much time I spent on the LazLive channel getting bundled deals on all of my favorite brands.

The eCommerce platform made 11.11 of this year even more fun. From now until November 10, you can play the Lazzie Star game to earn the coveted Golden Keys, which allow you to win prizes. A total of 34 golden keys through missions in the Lazada app gives you the chance to grab the top prize of a condo.

To win the keys, you must train Lazzie using “energy” to reach the highest level of level 30. “Energy” can be collected by completing various tasks such as completing missions, daily tasks, breaking the daily surprise egg and more.

You can get up to 10 gold keys in total at Lazzie Star level 15, 25 and 30. With these golden keys, you increase your chances of winning the ultimate prize: a million dollar condominium unit in Normanton Park.

Last year, Lazada gave away a car, and this year it’s a one bedroom apartment. Think, you don’t have to wait for a BTO anymore. Let the interior design Pinterest board take over.

To increase your chances of getting more keys, you can also invite a new friend to the Lazzie Star game. This way, both you and your friend will each receive a golden key in case of a successful referral.

I know it might seem overwhelming at first, and trust me, it was overwhelming for me too. After a while, you will get carried away and the dopamine rush that comes from helping Lazzie on her journey is satisfying.

I enjoy playing Lazzie Start early in the day to feel fulfilled and bask in all the good vibes.

In addition to collecting your 10 gold keys from Lazzie Star and 10 more to invite your friends, you can also collect a gold key every day by purchasing 100 LazCoins for S $ 1. You can purchase up to 11 keys in 11 days to increase your chances of winning.

To collect the remaining three gold keys, you can purchase the Monopoly PropNex Edition and get two more gold keys. Each user is allowed only one purchase while stocks last.

Just remember that you don’t need to collect all the golden keys, but each additional key increases your chances of winning that coveted condo.

Baggage offers and instant checkout without “queuing”

Ok, here’s another thing about shopaholics like us. We can’t resist a good deal and discount. This may be my inner ‘aunt’ talking, but the Lazada Bonus of S $ 6 off every S $ 60 is music to my ears.

In the last few days I have accumulated the Lazada bonus for “collection” on this amount during 11.11 to compensate for my purchases. Vouchers can be stacked and used on top of store and bank vouchers, making the offers even sweeter. Yes, this is a little advice from me to you.

A “Presale” event is currently underway for items sold at discounted prices. All you need to do is make an 11% deposit before 11/11 to lock down presale prices on eligible items, to cash out those savings on the actual day.

For example, I saw this gorgeous Jo Malone, 2-piece set with English Pear & Freesia Cologne and Body Crème 15ml worth S $ 132 – all I had to do was make a deposit for S $ 12, and I secured the presale price of S $ 110 and secured a set that will come sent to when I pay full price on 11.11.

Those year-end sales in the malls were the highlight of my year, where I amassed huge savings. But since I’ve become an avid online shopper, it’s been less physically tiring as I no longer have to juggle crowded malls, making this the best part of 11.11.

Also, I am quite helpless at the siren call of the “Vote to Win” activity since I found it on the app, where shoppers can vote for their favorite items to try and win S $ 0.01 purchases on interesting items .

These are not off-season or low-priced items. The list includes a PRISM + Q75 4K Android TV, Samsung HW-Q900A True 7.1.2ch soundbar, a Garmin Vivomove 3, Microsoft Surface Go 3, and more.

For the more spontaneous and surprises-loving shoppers, Lazada’s Surprise Boxes are the ones they should really consider.

Here you can get up to S $ 200 worth of items for just S $ 79 and other values ​​at S $ 11 (worth S $ 50), S $ 28 (worth S $ 100), and S $ 49 (worth S $ 150), which makes it a great incentive to get the most value on purchases. What I love to do is buy the biggest box and share the goodies among my shopping-loving friends. After all, we love a good deal.

An online sale can seem like a rather lonely affair at times, but Lazada’s live activities can make me feel part of this celebration.

The atmosphere of the live streaming rooms is both intimate and exciting – the stream of live chat comments and the accompanying series of “likes” emojis always lift my mood.

The camaraderie I feel with other shoppers as we prepare to check our carts together at the stroke of midnight undoubtedly makes the experience personal.

On November 10, from 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm, buyers, myself included, can look forward to the countdown of the virtual concert of the 11.11 Super Show which begins with the Regional Happiness Ambassadors of Lazada, the K- group. pop SEVENTEEN, as they take the stage as the main act.

As I hum the tunes of Korean idol group SEVENTEEN and am entertained by Lazada’s resident Chief Discount Officer Royce Lee along with local personalities Benjamin Kheng, Wang Lei, Jaspers, Nicole Chang Min and the like,

I will check the list of items in my cart on the side to rearrange it and make sure they are ready to be transported soon in case I miss an out of stock item.

When the clock strikes midnight, things start to get interesting with a special two-hour flash sale across the store with up to 90% discounts on over 300 brands.

I will look for additional offers to add to the cart as a last effort before making the first cart, all while maximizing the amount of my Lazada Bonus with coupons and free shipping eligibility.
