You can padlock your purses all you want, but resistance is futile. Black Friday, an international shopping frenzy that started out from the U.S., is less than two hours away as I write this. Retailers both online and offline are already dangling massive discounts that threaten to topple what you saw for the 11/11 Single’s Day sale, and this is set to be an all weekend long ‘add to cart’ marathon which culminates in Cyber Monday on 27 November 2017.
Singaporeans being Singaporeans, we can’t help but stay camped in front of our computers to snag new luxury threads for Christmas and New Year – all at knockoff prices.
Household e-commerce names such as Amazon, ASOS and Lazada are in on the action. Now, the question is, are you?
