A lucky Lazada shopper walked (or should we say drove) away with a brand-new Volvo S60 sport sedan during the e-retailer’s recent massive 12.12 sale. And it all boils down to fortuitous timing for clicking on ‘checkout’ — the customer was the 12th out of 2,123 shoppers who made a purchase at 12pm on December 12.
According to information released by Lazada, the car winner spent about $5. In comparison, prices for a Volvo S60 start from about $179,000.
The year-end sale, a joint collaboration with Mediacorp, also broke Lazada’s record for its 12.12 sale last year. Over 73,000 items were sold in just 12 seconds, with the priciest order being a $7,753 Grand Seiko SBGJ239 watch.
