There are few things more Singaporean than shopping up a storm, and since we can't all be out there doing our part for the nation's economy, we're going to stay in and cart out like mad on all the great deals, while being entertained at the same time. Sounds good?
Lazada and Mediacorp have embarked on a groundbreaking content-commerce marketing partnership, and what this means for you, dear consumer, is mind-blowing deals and "shoppertainment", as Mediacorp celebs and influencers host game shows such as “GUESS IT”, where you can guess the correct prices of featured products, as well as accumulate rewards and win coins which can be exchanged for vouchers by shaking your smartphones on the Lazada app when you see a prompt while watching TV shows on Mediacorp channels.
This all goes down in the lead-up to and during the National Day Mega Sale, which runs August 8 to 10, and you can expect deals from brands such as Apple, Nintendo, Sulwhasoo, Skin Inc, Marks and Spencer and Robinsons.
Some of your fave celebs to support during these interactive one-hour shows, which will be livestreamed on Lazada’s app, include Sonia Chew, Kimberly Wang and Gerald Koh, and you can look forward to deals of up to 90 per cent off those products you've been eyeing, as well as as a "Crazy Madness Sale", where for two hours from 12 to 2am, there will be — you guessed it — crazy mad sales. There will be way more fun games and programmes on radio and TV to be announced, and apparently a fun Super Claw game. Stay tuned as we unveil more over the coming days.
If you cannot wait and need to spend some moolah like right now, you can pre-order the winning designs for the Mask for the Nation by Mediacorp, available now on Lazada.
There are three fab winning designs, as well as a special commissioned design by Ang Wei Lun, an artist with cerebral palsy, whose artwork is also featured on the NDP2020 Singapore Together packs.
A portion of proceeds from the sales of the masks go to the Mediacorp Enable Fund, a community fund supporting persons with disabilities.
Get the masks at www.lazada.sg/shop/mediacorp-mask-for-the-nation.
Stay tuned for more details about the National Day Mega Sale.
