Brace yourselves (and your wallets) ladies, for one of the biggest online shopping sales of the year - the 11.11 Singles’ Day sales.

Coming up this Saturday (Nov 11),  e-tailers like Lazada and Zalora have planned massive discounts in a bid to drive up online says and to make a day like this count. . We've rounded up some of the insane 11/11 sales to look out for..  Whether you're single, or not, we all deserve a little retail therapy regardless.

 
 
Ezbuy

 

Ezbuy is one of the most popular freight forwarders which help Singaporean shoppers buy and ship directly from China. For 11.11, they'll be offering crazy $1 deals, flash deals of up to 90% off, free shipping specials, and many other vouchers so you can get even more savings on your total shopping spend.

Do look out for the Sure-Win Mystery Gift promotion that's up for grabs from Nov 8-11 in the Ezbuy Local Marketplace section - it's as though Christmas has come early with all these surprise mystery gifts. Another thing to look out for is their mini games where you'll stand a chance to get 100% rebate off your purchases or even win a grand prize of a $1,111 cash voucher.

 

IDS Skincare

IDS Skincare gives us yet another reason to invest in more skincare products this coming Singles' Day. For online orders $88 and above, you'll get to enjoy $22 off your total purchase this 11 November. If you're not too sure on what to add to your online shopping cart, do try out their sigature products such as the IDS Intensive Moisturiser ($100), IDS Pore Formula ($65) and IDS Rejuvenating Complex ($245). 

 
IUIGA
Instead of encouraging customers to make large purchases just to enjoy a discount, IUIGA is going against the grain and inviting customers to only buy items that are essential. An interactive game will  be made available on IUIGA's 'Buy Lesser, Buy Better' game page where players will be rewarded with a 20% promocode that can be used storewide after the game is completed. The catch? The discount code can only be applied when shoppers cart out only 3 items or less; a measure taken by IUGA to encourage shoppers to only get items of essential value to them.
On IUIGA's site, you'll find high quality cookware, travel essentials like luggages and homeware products like bedsheets and organisers.
 
Lazada
 

These sales just keep getting better and better. Case in point: Lazada will be doling out their items of up to 90% whilst having 110 flash deals and giving out exclusive bundles filled with trendy beauty and tech related items like products from Mamonde, Laneige, HP and Lenovo.
