You might be packing your overnight bag and breaking out those comfy trainers for some ardent queuing outside Orchard Road’s Apple store now that the iPhone XS and XS Max are about to land, but hold your horses.
Come September 21, 2018, 8AM, you’ll be able to buy the iPhone XS, XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 (available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities) online on Lazada, and they’re guaranteeing to have your purchases delivered by 12PM that very day if you get your order in before 9AM and are amongst their first 300 customers.
Anyone else who orders by 11AM will still get to enjoy same-day delivery. So spare your poor feet those long, gruelling hours of waiting in line, and just order your new iPhone or Apple Watch from Lazada’s website. You’ll still be amongst the first of your friends to get it, for those extra bragging rights.
What’s more, you may get an additional S$10 off (if you “Follow” the Apple store on Lazada) and earn up to 8% rebates (capped at S$50, applicable for LiveUp members and those purchasing with a Citi card). You can also opt for LazadaCare Plus, which will entitle you to one-year protection from accidental damage and an extended one-year warranty on top of Apple’s manufacturer warranty.
For all eager Apple enthusiasts, Lazada should be the fastest option in Singapore — sans standing right at Apple’s doors hours before they actually open.
