Bye Bye 11.11, Hello Amazon Prime Now’s Black Friday And Cyber Monday 2018

We’ve had Singles Day, AKA 11.11, just pass us by, and evidently the shopping craze isn’t stopping anytime soon, because Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just up ahead. Not to mention the holiday sales that will be rolled out once December rolls in, as we all go helter-skelter with our desperate, last-minute gift-shopping endeavours.

If it’s just hit you that half of November’s already gone and you don’t exactly have that much time to grab those presents — and chuck them in the mail, for those of you with family abroad — Amazon’s got your back. With their Prime Now service recently kicking off the season of shopping in Singapore, courtesy of 11.11, there are now tens of thousands of items that can be delivered right to your doorstep within two hours of purchase. And shipping’s free too, for orders above S$40.

More than that, Amazon has been working with brands, to launch new items on its retail platform, so customers can expect a host of new items.

Ladies, if you’ve been eyeing the widely popular Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System — with its apparently ultra-effective exfoliating prowess — Amazon’s just brought it into Singapore, so you’ll be able to get your hands on it quick if you order it off Prime Now. Quite recently, fresh flowers and a durian selection — seriously, of all things — have also been added to Singapore’s Prime Now shopping options, presumably for dinner party hosts who belatedly realise their table is incomplete.

Although if you’ve got your eye on something from an international store, don’t fret, you’ll still be able to get the purchase of your desire, you’ll just have to wait seven to nine business days, and free shipping’s also available for orders S$60 and up.

Amazon is also promising daily deals through to December 25, 2018, there’ll be new discounts everyday on things ranging from electronics, to party supplies, to food stuff — basically all possible essentials for your festive celebrations. The bulk of the deals will go live on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, expectedly, and Amazon has curated them and brought into Singapore some of the more popular items, so you’ll be able to enjoy that two-hour delivery time when you shop on Prime Now. There will also be lightning deals that’ll spring up every two hours from 8AM to 8PM, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for those.

Coming with Prime Video — Amazon’s video streaming service — and Twitch Prime — Amazon’s game streaming service — Amazon’s Prime Now membership is priced at S$2.99 monthly, although new users can enjoy the first thirty-days free.
