Love Bargains? Here’s Where You Can Find the Latest Sales in Singapore
If you love a good bargain, worry not. Here’s where you can find the latest warehouse sales, promotion or clearance sales in Singapore.
We’ve compiled three of our most-frequented sites (pre-COVID, that is).
2. Great Deals Singapore
3. Singapore Promotions
Yes, it’s just hosted by Blogspot, but this site is a treasure trove of promotions that you sometimes cannot find anywhere else.
In Singlish, lobang means “leads or opportunities”. It is a Malay word that means “hole”, but if someone asks you if you have any lobang, it essentially is asking for any opportunities.
Pros: It used to be quite updated pre-covid. We’re hoping they’d pick up once we resume with the new normal, though. Includes terms and conditions, outlets, even the original sale/promotion posters.
Cons: Typical, hard to navigate blogspot design. A wide variety of fonts used. Hard to search and scroll. The site does not look updated now.
Great Deals Singapore
Great Deals really does have a lot of deals, some of them are exclusive to the site. The great thing about this website is the categories. You can easily find lifestyle, tech, or food deals. Navigation is easy.
Pros: A lot of deals in this site. Easy to navigate. Search feature actually does its job. They also have amassed a huge following on Facebook. It looks updated as of August 2021.
Cons: The site is too busy, but if you’re really intensely focused on finding the perfect lobang, then we’re pretty sure you can sift through all those photos and texts in the home page. Also, there are a lot of paid advertisements here. They’re not necessarily the best deals for your pocketbook.
"Find out the latest and upcoming warehouse sales, clearance sales, private sales events and more happening islandwide. Also check out Happenings category for special non-sales events. Get Singapore Warehouse Sales on your Facebook!" is what their website states. And it is true.
The great thing about Singapore Promotions is that it shows you which sales and happenings are ongoing, starting today, ending today, or upcoming. It even has a calendar. So you can schedule your lobangs to your heart's content.
Pros: As stated above. It is so easy to take note of which sales are ongoing or are starting soon. That is this site's absolute edge over the others. The website is relatively clean and easy to navigate. This page, I tell you, really understands users' behavior. Ads are marked as "Advertisement" so there's no confusion there. There is a category filtering function, which is good. Also, it is updated as of August 2021.
Cons: It would probably be great to highlight the category filter. It seems to be swallowed up by some of the banner ads. Also, the annoying Google pop-up ad at the bottom... ngrrr.
