Standfirst: This is the moment you’ve been waiting for all year — to make your biggest savings by stocking up on gifts, every-day essentials and clothes from Amazon to Courts

As you know, Black Friday is just around the corner. In fact, it’s so close you could almost touch it. You might have read news reports that this year, Amazon has decided to shorten the wait to this annual Sale of the Year by three weeks — yes, it the e-comm juggernaut has already started the “countdown” to D-Day by offering a slew of attractive daily deals. With that news, we couldn’t help but wonder if other e-tailers — overseas and right here in our backward — might have jumped on the bandwagon with early-bird teasers, too.

So we did what we do best — scout, dig and ferret out all the sites and even brick-and-mortar stores that you should be stalking from now to bag the best deals, whether it’s gifts for the festive season or essentials for the new year ahead. Ready, set, shop!

  1. Amazon
    The race to the best buys is already on. Make a beeline for the “deal of the day” section, and you’ll be spoilt for choice for items going for up to 70 per cent off. It seems like a good place to start looking for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa gifts, if you ask us. Some of the crazy deals spotted so far include “The Hunger Games Complete 4-film Blu-Ray series at US$24.99 (46% off), TaoTronics Bluetooth Nano-Coating Sweatproof Sport Headphone at US$25.49 (58% off) and SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB SDXC Flash Memory Card at US$34.95 (45% off). Be sure to log on every day to check for new deals and steals.
  2. Zalora

Word is out. Zalora Singapore will have conducting their Black Friday sale from November 27 to 30 with discounts of up to 80 per cent. If you download their app, you’ll get an additional 18 per cent off. We don’t know about you, but we’re already shopping and adding our 2017 wardrobe to wish list. As soon as the clock strikes 12 on November 27, we’re checking out.

  1. Sephora

Hey beauty-philes! Last year, Sephora Singapore offered Black and White card members 15 per cent off their purchases with a minimum spend of S$100. We expect no less from the our beauty fairy godmother this year. If anyone needs us, we’ll be stalking Sephora.sg and their social media for the latest updates.

  1. Uniqlo

You know you can trust the Japanese to be precise. Last year, Uniqlo gave us 20 per cent off storewide (a minimum purchase was required only at their online store). The promotion was valid precisely on the day of Black Friday, and the it’s come to our attention that they almost always launch their promotion at the stroke of midnight. So, if you’re looking to stock up on winterwear, Heattech underwear or — gasp! — Uniqlo’s Carine Roitfeld collection (if they’re still available by then), set your alarm!

  1. Shopbop

From indie to designer labels, Shopbop is a one-stop shop for fashionistas. Have you been searching for the perfect pair of mules or embroidered bomber jacket? There’s a pretty good chance you’ll find it here — and at a sweet discount come Black Friday. If the last two years are any indication, you can expect up to 25 per cent off your order, plus free express shipping worldwide. Keep your eyes peeled.

  1. Nasty Gal

In the Nasty Gal-axy, Black Friday is the new black. Looking at the history books, #Girlbosses everywhere enjoyed 30 per cent off their favourite black styles with a bonus 30 per cent off for Black Friday. Details of their deals are usually up a few days before Black Friday, and include early access for their social media followers. So, start following, go.

  1. Love, Bonito

If you’re a fan of homegrown fashion e-commerce site Love, Bonito, chances are you’d have enjoyed up to half in 2015 with an additional 10 per cent off when you enter a promo code. We are rubbing our hands in anticipation of what’s to come this year. Stay tuned, and support local, people!

  1. Robinsons

Calling big spenders! Are you moving house and in the market for big-ticket items? In case you missed it, Robinsons offered up some seriously delish discounts (up to 80 per cent!) and gifts including limited quantities of the iPad Mini 3 (with a minimum spend of S$3,500) and the iPhone 6 64GB for those who spent at least S$5,000. It’d be wise to start keeping your eyes and ears open a week before Black Friday, and be ready to strike when the time comes.

  1. Qoo10

Love it or loathe it, you can’t deny that Qoo10 does have some good stuff to offer — if you could bring yourself to wade through the clutter. Last year, we spotted Havaianas for S$9.90, Kindle Paperwhite for S$79.90 and Kate Spade wallets for S$59. It could be worth a stakeout.

  1. Courts

This is perhaps the best time of the year to refurbish your home or think about renewing some of your age-old furniture and appliances. At the last Black Friday, Courts rolled out irresistible offers that promised up to 90 per cent in savings. Sure, you can jostle with other bargain hunters at their brick-and-mortar stores, but the promotions are also available online if you’re busy making other purchases the world over.
