Don't say we bojio — the biggest three-day sale this side of National Day has already started. The Lazada National Day Sale kicks off on August 8 and is till August 10, but you can start adding to cart right now. Happening from today is a pre-sale where you can secure your items, pay a deposit (8.8% of sale price) from today till Aug 7, complete your full payment on Aug 8 and get it delivered right after. How's that for a cheat way to shop the sale before it actually starts? Let's just say we may or may not have put down a $35.15 deposit on a $799 watch we've been eyeing that's now $399.50. Shop the pre-sale here.
Of course, there will be way more deals when the sale actually launches on Aug 8, and our heads are seriously spinning from the discounts being offered by our favourite brands. There are too many, but here are some deals we're keeping tabs on: Apple iPhones and AirPods (up to 30% off the Apple store on LazMall), a cute Furla bag (up to 65% off on Furla), Under Armour shoes (50% off storewide), all those affordable fashion and lifestyle picks on Taobao Collection (with 28% off with min spend $50), up to 55% off storewide for Skin Inc, as well as unbeatable deals on Ergobaby, Huggies, Lego, Dyson, Nespresso, Marks & Spencer and Redmart Private Label, just to name a few.
