It’s that time of the year again for shoppers on Lazada. The e-commerce platform turns 8 this week, and it is wasting no time getting celebrations ready. And by celebrations, we mean a massive 8th Birthday Sale happening on the entire day of 27 March.
The sale will feature a wide variety of products from over 200 brands on discount. To kickstart the festivities, there will be a Storewide Flash Sale happening from 12am – 2am, followed by deals from the flagship stores. Vouchers from the Lazada’s affiliated banks such as Standard Chartered, HSBC, Citibank, UOB and DBS will also be up for grabs for anyone who wants even juicier discounts at checkout.
And while there is a lengthy list of products we’d like to recommend during the Lazada 8th Birthday Sale, we’ll hone in on the tech that you can look out for (check out our list of toys and collectibles too!).
Additionally, we’ll go the extra mile to guess the sale price for each item. Just take note that our guess is only speculative, and may not reflect in the final sale price on the day itself.
