How to find the best CNY deals in Singapore
We’ll be consistently updating this page with the best CNY bargains available across the web. But besides keeping this tab bookmarked, there are a few things you can do to make the most out of your CNY bargain hunting.
Before jumping into the sales, think about what you want to find and what your budget is. It’s very easy to get caught up in the sales and spontaneously grab what might appear to be a good bargain, but if you plan ahead and do a bit of shopping around you can maximise your savings and score big on the gear you really want.
Just like other big sales periods, some listings might have an inflated regular price to make deals appear better than what they actually are. This happens a lot with TVs particularly during sales periods such as Black Friday, and the best way to avoid this is to have some idea of what the regular price of a product is before searching for it.
Some retailers have loyalty programs that will give you perks such as free shipping and even some additional coupons or discounts. There might be a cost to these programs however, so weigh up your potential savings with the cost for a membership or take advantage of free trial periods if they have one on offer.
