Chinese New Year (CNY) is just around the corner, and every Chinese on Earth are busy preparing for the festival. Did you know that 20% of the world population is in China? Including the citizen of that country, Chinese is one of the largest ethnic group on Earth. It’s no surprise that CNY, or sometimes called Spring Festival, is such a big deal. Have you sent a Chinese New Year greeting card?
Last updated on February 3, 2018 Lazada is arguably the largest online marketplace in Malaysia. Just like any other online shop, Lazada is generally cheaper than brick-and-mortar. How do you, a smart buyer, squeeze even more saving? Lazada deals First, there’s deals. On special occasions (11⁄11, Raya, Valentine’s Day—to name but a few), Lazada Malaysia throws site-wide discounts. As we have written before, sometimes the deals is not that sweet 🙄, but it’s better than nothing!
Black Friday is a tradition in the United States where retailers offer deep discounts for the whole day, making it the busiest shopping day of the year. Cyber Monday is actually the online equivalent, but ecommerce have been embracing Black Friday as well because, well, more sales is better 🙃. During Black Friday last month, we bought some items from Google Store and Amazon. It was not as straightforward as we initially thought, so we’re writing this post to detail our experience.
LINE is a popular messaging app in Japan (where it is from) and other Asian countries. According to LINE, one third of Indonesians have LINE app installed. With that in mind, we’re happy to announce that Sarah Shopper is now available on LINE! Do note that, at the moment, your account is not synced among messaging apps where Sarah Shopper is available. If you chat with Sarah on Facebook Messenger, Google Assistant and LINE, you will have three separate accounts, one for each platform.
It sounds weird that a shopping blog like this talks about phone security, but many people use Sarah Shopper to track price of smartphones so we do have some responsibility to inform this. Next time you’re thinking of buying an Android phone, think twice if the brand is OnePlus. Apparently, the company behind it was caught collecting personally identifiable data from OnePlus phones through incredibly detailed analytics. Everyone, including Sarah Shopper, use analytics in some way (we use Google Analytics, used by the majority of website and apps), but the data we collect are anonymized (we don’t know that a visitor named Jim Hopper with phone number +1 555 5555 just opened Tinder).
It’s only a month since #MYCYBERSALE—dubbed as the biggest online sale in Malaysia—and yet tomorrow we’ll have another great sale, 11⁄11 (a.k.a. Singles’ Day since they’re all ones). Whether you’re single or not, you definitely don’t want to miss it. But… do items on sale really have price cut? People have doubts with discounts. It’s common knowledge that some sellers raise the price before bringing it down with discounts. We monitored and analyzed thousands of items on 11street and Lazada during and after #MYCYBERSALE.
