Category: Money Tips

It’s time to shop smarter and harder for 10.10 sale this year! If you’re an avid online shopper, you should totally make a list of online shopping deals offered by different brands and stores in Malaysia. Here are 5 best deals that we found, read below to find out.



It’s that time of the year again where shopaholics across the country are all gearing up for one thing, and one thing only – the 10.10 sale, one of the hottest sales of the year.

The presence of the COVID-19 pandemic – until the foreseeable future – shouldn’t hinder us from enjoying our retail therapy. In fact, the pandemic has only accelerated our shift to digitalisation, and thus online shopping, as technology grows to become a more integral part of our daily lives.

This trend is reflected in consumers and our shopping habits – a larger percentage of society is becoming more dependent on shopping online instead of the traditional brick-and-mortar stores.

With so many exciting deals to be on the lookout for, and so many different brands and merchants to choose from, it can be easy to splurge unnecessarily on things that you don’t really want or need just because the price may seem okay.

We’re here to help you narrow down the options by sharing some of the best deals and provide some tips on how to navigate the 10.10 sale so you’ll make the most out of your shopping experience.

But before we get into what we feel are the best 10.10 deals, here’s a few tips on how to make the most out of your shopping experience.

Prepare a list of what you want to get

Have you ever bought something and then instantly regretted it?

Well to avoid such circumstances, it’s always better to list down all the items that fall into your wish list and make a list of things that you need or want before you embark on any shopping endeavour.

Optimise your spending by paying with credit cards and e-wallets

We’ve already written about this, but certain shopping platforms (like Shopee) has its own close-loop e-wallet, which basically means that the money in your e-wallet can only be used on the platform itself.

And we are of the belief that since you’re already going to be spending on the platform, might as well use a payment system that actually rewards you. And the platform comes with its own perks such as cashbacks and rebates.

For example, to help Shopee users get more mileage for their Ringgit outside the platform, they’re also roping in an RM3 cashback with a minimum spend of RM15 with ShopeePay at any of their offline merchants. (P/S: We hear that new ShopeePay users can get RM8 free cash when they activate their ShopeePay.)

Having an e-wallet also makes refunds extremely easy. Plus, considering banks are always on maintenance at midnight (the same time as when most major sale campaigns happen), pre-loading your wallet will easily allow you to take full advantage of sales as you can easily check-out without issues.

An added bonus: we found out Grab is giving a RM20 rebate when customers use GrabPay for their 10.10 online deals. Just spend a minimum of RM100 with participating online stores, and get a RM20 rebate from October 10 to 12.

Consider using credit cards tied to the platform

While you can use any credit card to make your purchases, there are credit cards that are designed specifically for online shoppers. These cards typically fall under a rewards system to entice customers to spend with their cards.

These cards are also no different to other credit cards but they come with the added benefit of getting more rewards as you spend on their respective platforms.

1. Citibank x Lazada
