Don't Miss These 2016 Black Friday Sales In Singapore!'s #1 personal finance comparison platform by transaction volume, provides consumers with timely money insights and aggregates the latest credit card offers and up-to-date personal loan deals.

Stalk these websites to score early deals, or wait until 25 November to shop all the 2016 Black Friday sales in Singapore.
Hot on the heels of Singles’ Day come Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday, a four-day shopping bonanza that will last from 25 to 28 November this year. Originating from the US, Black Friday takes place the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving (which is on the fourth Thursday of November). In 2016, Black Friday will happen on 25 November. This marks the start of Christmas shopping season, with slashed prices and special store opening hours. Malls in Singapore typically do not celebrate Black Friday. But on the Internet, Singaporeans let their fingers do the shopping, snagging deals at Amazon, Lazada, and other online stores. Here’re all the websites you should stalk now to score early deals, or that are holding crazy Black Friday sales in Singapore. We’ll update this list daily until 25 November, so follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to know!
1. Amazon – Countdown to Black Friday
The granddaddy of online retailing, Amazon doesn’t want you to wait two whole weeks to get your hands on some discounted loot. The website is gearing up for the shopping holiday by slashing prices across its famously vast inventory.
How to Make the Most of It
Amazon means business – we spotted a 38% discount on a Lenovo Chromebook, 50% off a magnetic salt and shaker set, 70% off a cocktail shaker set… and that’s only from 2 minutes of browsing. No doubt, Amazon’s countdown is calculated to loosen wallets and start raking in the cash. Hold off on spending until the big day itself to ensure you don’t miss out on last-minute price reductions. You may also want to use the Citi Rewards Visa Card for your Amazon shopping spree. Until 31 December, cardmembers get 20 Reward Points or 8 miles for every S$1 you spend in Amazon. Given that you need purchases worth S$125 to qualify for free global shipping to Singapore, your Black Friday spree can net you 2,500 Reward Points or 1,000 miles!
2. Lazada Online Revolution – From Now till 12 December
11 November was just the beginning. On Singles’ Day, Lazada kicked off the start of a month-long sales campaign, putting up daily deals and special discounts on its website. Everything is on sale: from home appliances, electronics and gadgets, beauty essentials, health supplements, groceries, pet products, even car and motor needs!
How to Make the Most of It
With Black Friday still two weeks away, Lazada is probably saving its best deals till then. So we say, snap up a deal or two if you spot some good ones, but save your shopping budget for the main event. Besides, there’re plenty of ongoing offers to look into, including deals with partner merchants ranging from Foodpanda to Expedia. Take advantage of the discount codes for each of these, so you can extend your savings beyond Lazada purchases.
3. Zalora Black Friday Sale – 25 to 28 November
If you’re looking for that little something extra to take your Christmas outfits to the next level, Zalora has got you covered. The online fashion retailer will be lining up discounts of up to 80% for the Black Friday weekend, so get ready for a haute couture overhaul.
How to Make the Most of It
If you register through their website as a new user, and stubbornly refuse to use their app, you’ll get an exclusive 18% discount. How? Once Zalora notices your lack of technological savvy, you’ll get a pop-up inviting you to download the Zalora app so you can start shopping on your phone, like all the cool kids are doing these days. They’ll even SMS you the download link if you provide them with your mobile number.
4. Adidas – Special Deals for Black Friday
Footwear and fashion purveyor Adidas is teasing a Black Friday sale on its website. Details are scant at the moment, but we’ll update once we get more info.
How to Make the Most of It
You’ll want to prep for your Adidas shopping spree by signing up for an online account beforehand. Doing so will net you a 10% one-time discount when you buy over their website. Adidas also offers free shipping if you spend more than S$100, so take note if you want your new kicks to be delivered at no extra cost.
5. Shopback – Black Friday Cashback Codes
Save more on your Black Friday shopping spree with cashback codes from Shopback that give you cash rebates on your purchases. The deal is simple, shop online on Shopback’s website and get a certain percentage of your spend credited into your account. You can cash out your savings once you reach at least S$10. For 2016, Shopback is teasing rebates on fashion, electronics and travel. The site is also gearing up to launch what’s it’s calling “Super Cashback”, which will take place on 25 November – all the better for you to top up your cashback account when Black Friday rolls around.  
How to Make the Most of It
In the lead-up to Black Friday, Shopback is holding a week-long sale featuring discounts plus bonus cashback, so if you’re dying to do some shopping, stalk those deals for some savings. While you’re at it, take advantage of Shopback’s referral programme to earn up to S$100 cashback credit in your account. All you have to do is to refer 3 friends before 9 December. And, if you’re a first-time referrer, you’ll get an extra S$30! Also, Shopback has implemented a new feature to help you find deals with improved cashback rates – just lookout for a yellow moneybag icon. This way you know you’re getting the best available deal for your chosen product or service, earning you the most cashback. One more way to earn cashback: From now till 31 December, shop with your Visa credit card to get up to 6% additional rebate. We suggest we use the Citi Rewards Visa card, which gives you 10 points (equivalent to 4 air miles) per S$1 spent on fashion, bags or shoes.
