Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Black Friday (24 November 2017) is considered to be the beginning of the year-end Christmas shopping season. On this day, the promotions are usually the most attractive. Many shops are open earlier than usual to accommodate early birds. It is not unusual to see people camping outside shops in order to grab limited-quantity items as soon as the doors are opened.

Not everyone can queue up overnight. Even if one does, one is not guaranteed to get all items on the wish list. In some cases, pushing and shoving can lead to unpleasant experiences. Therefore, more retailers are migrating their Black Friday offers to online platforms. This is where ShopBack comes in.

ShopBack has partnered with popular shopping portals like Lazada, Zalora, Taobao, Asos and to stretch your money even further. Holidaymakers can also take advantage of discounted prices on travel websites like, Agoda and Expedia. On top of ridiculously low prices that these online retailers are already offering, this cashback loyalty platform allows its members to get up to 10% cash rewards on their purchases. Where else can you find discounts like these?

While the hottest items during Black Friday are electronics and home appliances, Cyber Monday (27 November 2017) focuses on primarily on clothing and fashion. Most people choose to shop online because it is a work day. With plenty of sale items going at massive discounts, shoppers can easily navigate through various websites to get the best bang for their buck.

As part of my expanding portfolio as a Foodveler, I will be traveling more extensively in Malaysia and abroad next year. Therefore, I will be using travel websites like Agoda, Expedia, and to find affordable accommodation wherever I go. As for airline tickets, I am looking forward to grabbing bargain prices from premium airlines like Emirates and Qatar Airways. These are some of the many partners that ShopBack has recruited under its umbrella.

Another important date to look out for is 12 December 2017. On this day, the "1212" sales has attracted significant attention from online retailers due to overwhelming response from online shoppers in China. A substantial number of shopping portals have pledged to slash their prices even further. This is on top of cash rebates that ShopBack is already giving.

In case you missed out on the Black Friday Cyber Monday discounts, Lazada 1212 sales is one way to redeem yourself. And in case you were wondering, membership is absolutely FREE! So what do you really have to lose here? :-)
