We can safely say that the collective human population has never wanted a year to end as much as this one, and what better way to close off a rather, er, eventful 2020 than by shopping to your heart’s content at the biggest year-end sales festival, with Lazada’s 12.12 sale?
Picking up the momentum from their highly-successful 11.11 and Black Friday/Cyber Monday in November, the e-commerce giant will be hosting a ton of storewide flash sales with up to 90% discounts on sale items during the one-day sale, as well as flash vouchers available between 12am – 2am. And of course, shoppers can also expect over 150 surprise boxes from various brands that provide massive bang for your buck if you’re looking to get tons of goodies at cut prices.
But there’s something special for 12.12, as it’s not just about buying stuff, as Lazada is also looking to give back.
While we can go on about the multitude of ways in which folks can enjoy holiday discounts during 12.12, Lazada is more importantly doing its part to give back to the community, after what has been a relatively tough year so far. Shoppers on Lazada during 12.12 will be rewarded with free gifts with purchase, and it has prepped over S$2 million worth of products and items for every shopper during 12.12.
How this works is all shoppers who make any purchase during the sale will qualify for a 5% Lazada return voucher (capped at S$5), and be rewarded with another treat from one of the platform’s preferred partners, including Subway, Tuk Tuk Cha, I Love Taimei, and R&B Tea.
The pièce de résistance of Lazada’s festive initiative is that one shopper will get to drive home a brand-new Volvo S60 Sport Sedan! And no, the company is not rewarding the biggest shopper or highest spender to date. To qualify for this year-end giveaway, simply be the 12th shopper at 12 noon on 12 December – that’s all there is to it and you can drive away with a car that’s listed as price starting from S$179,000 (thanks, Google)!
Or if you don’t have a license, how about if Lazada feeds you, with a year’s worth of groceries via RedMart? Simply be the 1,212th shopper from 10pm and you can walk away with 12 months of free groceries worth S$2,400!
Other giveaways shoppers can expect during Lazada’s 12.12 includes the LazFeed Giveaway, which lets customers stand a chance to win by voting for the prizes to take home (available from 5 – 12 December), including the new PRISM+ Q75 Android TV (worth S$3,999).
In addition to the giveaways, customers will get to enjoy more savings by taking part in various activities on the Lazada app from 1 – 12 December.
Playing new games such as “Happy Bounce” and “Fun Farm” on their LazGames library lets customers claim from a pool of over S$100,000 worth of store vouchers.
Playing LazGames, reviewing purchases, and completing daily missions earns customers LazCoins, which they can use to redeem S$12 vouchers and free gifts. Other vouchers to be won are from the Surprise Egg activity, where customers have to crack the egg on the app to stand the chance to win a S$120 voucher.
In the lead-up to Lazada’s 12.12 sale, shoppers can enjoy early-bird prices if they are shopping via the app, on their favourite products by placing a non-refundable deposit from 1 – 11 December to lock in the price before the sale starts. To do this, customers simply have to put in a deposit of 12% of the sale price for exclusive sets, 1-for-1 promotions and deals up to 50% off. You only need to complete the payment on 12 December, after which the product will be shipped out shortly!
