When it comes to online shopping, all we have to do is lift a finger and scroll – a true godsend for everyone especially if you’re a) a shopaholic and b) lazy like me. But if you add c) broke to the list, then this convenient process gets dangerous for our bank account real quick.

Lucky for us, Taobao and Tmall are swooping in to save our wallets this week with their 38 Girlboss Fest happening from 3rd-9th March 2019. In celebration of International Women’s Day, expect daily 9.9RMB (~S$2) flash deals, lots of shopping coupons and the chance to snag hongbaos worth up to 388RMB (~S$78).

Here are some highlights that’ll help you navigate this crazy sale.


Swipe your card for up to $12 off your purchase


It’s almost fair game for all card holders for once! Regardless of whether you hold a DBS, OCBC or HSBC card – all Singapore debit or credit card holders are entitled to S$10 OFF their total purchase amount with a minimum spend of S$100 for in-app purchases!

UOB cardmembers, on the other hand, get to enjoy an even sweeter deal. They’ll unlock the full $12 OFF their total bill with the same minimum spend on the app.

On top of that, there’s also that chance to redeem sure-win online coupons to waive that annoying 3% credit card service fee.


Simply spend more to save more


If it helps your conscience a little bit more when you’re pressing that “add to cart” button, the more you spend, the more you actually save. To put things into better perspective, every 300RMB (S$60.55) spent allows you to redeem a coupon that saves you 30RMB (S$6), so you needn’t feel that guilty for splurging on your everyday essentials.

And these great deals don’t just apply to beauty products. If you’re a girlboss looking to revamp your entire wardrobe, you’ll even be able to score wardrobe staples and new additions at an amazing price of 9.9RMB (~S$2)!

Then comes the cherry on top – some deals even include free delivery so you won’t need to worry about your shipping fee adding up.


Slashed delivery fees and get free shipping


Those who’ve shopped on Tmall or Taobao before will know that although prices may be unbelievably low, shipping can sometimes be the silent killer that is calculated per item and can amount to more than what you’d expect.

But there’s a silver lining to this dark cloud. With a minimum spend of just 101RMB (~S$20.50) on selected Tmall Signature furniture and bulky items, you’ll get to grab vouchers that will help you shave almost the same amount [100RMB (~S$20)] off your entire cost.

Celebrate International Women’s Day with Tmall


To quote my ultimate girl boss, Blair Waldorf, “Whoever said that money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.” No truer words have ever been spoken.

Simply put, we can’t deny that utter sense of satisfaction when spending on something nice for ourselves. Running from 3rd-9th March 2019, the 38 Girlboss Fest empowers you to treat yourself and get whatever you want just because you can.

And to the guys out there, you’re more than welcome to join in the celebration as well – if you’re not sure about what to get your girlfriend, wife or mum, then the wallet-friendly deals you’ll find online will make gift-giving a piece of cake. It’s a win-win!
