11 Best Online Shopping For Singles’ Day Shopping Spree

Why 11.11 Singles' Day Is The Best Day To Shop

If you love online shopping, November is pretty much the month to do so. With the Singles Day 11.11 sales, Black Friday and Cyber Monday all falling in the same month, you’ll be facing a plethora of online sales with irresistible deals every time you go online. The 11.11 Singles’ Day sale event is one of the biggest online shopping events that occur yearly. Shoppers can expect great deals and discounts especially for the Asian markets.

Originally Singles’ Day started off as an entertaining festival for young people in China that were proud to be single. As opposed to days like Valentine’s Day where relationships and partnership with a significant other is celebrated, Singles’ Day is supposed to be a day for people to celebrate their singlehood – a day devoted to treating yourself. The date of November 11 is no coincidence either, as 11.11 was chosen due to its resemblance of single individuals.

Today, Singles’ Day has evolved into a shopping event where retailers come together to offer top deals and discounts for the day. With the year-end festive seasons such as Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner (how are we almost at the end of 2021?), t’s also right about time to start buying gifts for your loved ones, which can burn a hole in your pocket.

Keep yourself in the loop of year-end sales events:

11.11 Singles' Day Sale 11 November 2021 Mainly China and Singapore shopping sites
Black Friday 26 November 2021 Mainly US and UK shopping sites
Cyber Monday 29 November 2021 Mainly US and UK shopping sites
12.12 Sale 12 December 2021 Mainly China and Singapore shopping sites

If you have already set your mind set to go shopping, we’re here to give you a best list of sites to shop from with the best bargains what you can expect from last year’s 11.11 sales.
