We’ve probably heard enough that ecommerce sites are slowly taking over the traditional brick and mortar stores. Here’s why:
Singapore’s unforgiving weather is the best deterrent to go out. We lament about the humidity and heat, and decide that it’s best to stay indoors (much preferred with air-conditioning). Trust me, there’s no better place to don your PJs, to do your shopping. Spare yourself from the misery of waiting in line with your purchases. If you hate crowds like me, this is one of the biggest draws of shopping online.
There are sites, which offer a greater selection of colours and designs than what I will find in physical stores.
I wouldn’t say that there are better prices and cheaper deals online. Yet, there’s something alluring about discount codes that keeps me coming back for more. It’s no black magic but I’d self-diagnose it as a chronic shopping disorder. Oh. There’s also a refund policy that lets me return the garment if it doesn’t fit. So, what’s there not to love about shopping online?
No wonder Orchard Road is losing its lustre, despite being flanked by hotels and a myriad of tourist attractions. My advice for you will be: If you can’t beat them, join them.
June is the month of incessant spending, where my wallet hates my guts. Especially with Great Singapore Sale bordering ecommerce sites, and Father’s Day on its way to show filial piety. That’s when I have to crack my head to plan a nice meal for my dad.
Nothing speaks comfort, more than dining at home. Thanks to ShopBack, I have a long laundry list of options to sweeten the deal for me. I could dine affordably with Fave by Groupon, order delivery on Foodpanda, or also enjoy Deliveroo coupons on my order. Feeling the pinch? No worries, I’m happy to receive cashback in my account and pay out to my bank account. That way, my wallet can hurt less, while keeping my dad’s belly happy.
