These days, when we’re in need of some retail therapy, shopping online would be our first instinct, instead of physically heading to our nearest mall. After all, it takes mere seconds to load our favourite sites and plus, we can do this in the comfort of our home (even in bed and with PJ’s on), so why would we head to a crowded mall, amirite?
Well, if you’re a self-professed online shopper who also wants to save, here are a few dates you should be marking on your calendar this 2019 because that’s when all the best sales and discounts are happening for 24 hours. Blink and you’ll miss them!
1. Online Boost Day: 8th May
Already using an e-wallet like Boost when you shop online? Great. Now, mark your calendar for this Wednesday (8th May) because it’s the Online Boost Day and it’s happening on ONE DAY ONLY! On this day, make sure you scan and pay with Boost when you shop with any of their online partners because you’ll get to enjoy 30% cashback as well as a chance to win some amazing prizes worth up to RM250,000! More deets on this later but trust us, you’ll want to take home those cool prizes.
2. Merdeka Day: 31st August
It’s our national day after all, and to celebrate this important milestone since Malaysia gained independence in 1957, most shopping sites will offer 31% off on their regular-priced items. And this includes some sites that usually don’t offer any discounts at all throughout the year, so this is a pretty big deal!
3. Singles’ Day: 11th November
This is one of the biggest online shopping day that no one in their right mind should miss! Imagine your favourite brands at a 70 to 80% discount!
If you’re wondering why 11.11 = Singles’ Day… and your wild guess is that the number 1 in that date looks like four bare sticks, then you’re right! Read about its origins here and yes, on this special day, no matter if you’re single or in a relationship, you can shop the best markdowns on all your favourite shopping sites!
4. Black Friday: 29th November
Falling on the same week as Thanksgiving, Black Friday is an auspicious day for not only American online retailers but international ones too and they’d usually slash down the prices of their products as a way to give thanks to their customers. How sweet!
5. “Double 12” Shopping Holiday: 12th December
Just like 11.11, there’s another special day in December that’s known as Double 12 or 12.12 – this sequel to the famous Singles’ Day is even bigger since it’s the end of the year and shoppers would usually already have an allocated “gift budget” for their loved ones for Christmas or as they ring in the new year.
FYI, while 11.11 focuses on larger e-tailers online, 12.12 highlights smaller brands who might’ve been overshadowed by bigger ones in November.
See? Timing is really the key! Shop online at the right time and you’ll really get to save a significant amount than if you were to spend on any other regular day. Shop smart, guys!
And speaking of the right time, don’t forget that the Online Boost Day is taking place on 8th May for 24 hours only, so make sure you #PayWithBoost at any of their online partners on this day to enjoy 30% cashback and win other cool prizes worth up to RM250,000!
Plus, besides getting that 30% cashback and prizes worth up to RM250,000, check out these amazing prizes that you can stand a chance to win when you scan and pay using Boost:

A chance to win prizes worth up to RM250,000 and cashback too on top of everything? Who wouldn’t want to pay with Boost wei!
