For those who like shopping, today, November 11 (11-11) is the day for you!
It’s “11/11” or also known as “Singles’ Day” or “Double 11,” a 24-hour shopping frenzy by webshops in the world.
“Singles Day” is considered the biggest online shopping event in the world.
On this specific day, you can get a lot of discounts from webshops like Lazada, Shopee, AliExpress, Zalora, Wish, etc.
November 11 originated as a student holiday that celebrates a day for “singles” — sort of a counter-balance to Valentine’s Day.
“Singles Day” was created by four bachelor students who wanted to celebrate being a “bachelor” or “bachelorette”. This originally started at universities.
In 2009, 11-11 was first celebrated in China hosted by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba.
They saw the opportunity to make a discount party of this day. That’s one day a year with discounts of up to 95%.
In China, there are so many people who make use of the fact that they make as much sales in one day as they do in other countries for more than a year. The sales on this day are therefore seen as barometers for the Chinese economy. But now it’s also popular outside China.
Every year, more webshops and stores are offering high discounts.
You can easily find the offers, discounts and discount codes in one overview. There are many types of deals on this day: electronics, travel, fashion, toys, games and much more.
What are you waiting for? Enjoy shopping!
