Black Friday…Cyber Monday…we just want to score some deals. Let the festive season shopping begin!
While we’re not into the crazy queuing and ticking clocks that notoriously come with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, we do love a good bargain right before the festive season. It couldn’t be a more perfect time to shop for gifts! So we’ve sussed out the best shops in Singapore and online stores that are offering Black Friday deals and discounts for you to start browsing ASAP.
Just remember, Black Friday tends to start at midnight in the U.S., which will be 1pm Saturday here. Ditto for Cyber Monday. Meanwhile, there are plenty of local deals to keep you occupied, too, and we’re all for supporting small local businesses whenever possible.
Happy shopping, mamas!
All over the globe (including in the U.S., the UK, and right here in Singapore), Amazon is already counting down to Black Friday with daily deals on gifty goodies like clothes, electronics, bedding, books and toys. In some cases you can even get free shipping to Singapore! Be sure to keep an eye on the Amazon Prime Now app here in Singapore, which will be offering all sorts of deals over the Black Friday weekend.
One of our very favorite stores for baby and kids’ clothing, Carter’s will be offering 50-60% off EVERYTHING on their site for Black Friday.
