Honestly I have no idea what Black Friday is and why is there so many Black Friday sale around until a few days ago. So I did a quick googling and found the meaning behind Black Friday.
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November), often regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Thanks to Wikipedia, now we know why every single online shopping site you ever know are running their own version of Black Friday sale. I’ve gathered a few of them that I thought are good so you too can have a Black Friday sale shopping 😀
Sigma Beauty (http://www.sigmabeauty.com/)
I’ve never bought anything directly from Sigma before but I thought their complimentary worldwide shipping is a good deal. Just enter the code BF2014 at checkout. Oh and the site is also offering Cyber Monday sale of 20% OFF sitewide on the 1st December with the code CM2014 at checkout.
I was eyeing on Luxola yesterday for Black Friday sale and there wasn’t any. Then later that evening Luxola released an EDM on Cyber Monday sale with 40% OFF sitewide for the 1st December. It looks like they skipped Black Friday sale and head straight to Cyber Monday. But then again, all the discount doesn’t apply onto Zoeva anymore *sad*
I was so ready to get the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette two days ago but the free express delivery was over. I check yesterday and there was nothing as well. Most of the sale is for clothing etc and not the beauty products. Today when I check again, Net-a-Porter is back to offering complimentary express delivery (2-3 days) on all orders. The palette cost $10 more than every other site but the free express delivery is way better than other site. So in the end, it’s cheaper – $68 with express delivery vs £56.00 + £5.00 standard 21 days delivery.
Zalora is the mother of all online sale. For Black Friday, they are offering up to 70% OFF the brands listed as below. They have this 15% OFF on selected items with the code BLACKCRAY15 but that was valid until 28th November midnight. Subscribe to their newsletter and you’d get RM20 OFF too.
For the past few days Reebonz has been doing a pre-Black Friday Sale where as you’d get extra 11% OFF by entering the code 2014BLKF11MY at checkout. That’s the code I used to buy a Longchamp bag. I’ve always wanted another Longchamp bag but couldn’t decide on the color. Moving to the actual Black Friday Sale which started from 28th Dec to 30th Dec, the site is offering 500 items at 50% OFF, 400 items at 40% OFF and 300 items at 30% OFF. Not only that. Their two hourly specials – Gift-opia is happening from 10am to 10pm which will feature two items at final price for two hours only. If you’re a regular of Reebonz, you would have guessed that Reebonz never fail to have something extra for the weekend. So from 29th to 30th November, enter 2014BLKF8MY at checkout to enjoy additional 8% OFF.
The Body Shop (http://www.thebodyshop.com.my/)
The Body Shop too did a Black Friday sale. The 50% OFF EDM sounded so good so I check it out yesterday and disappointed to find that the selection is so small and unattractive. Perhaps you can find something that you like there.
Despite the mishap that happened to me a few months ago, I still check the page from time to time. Mysale has been doing a RM1 shipping fee which I find really good since we paid RM30 previously for a shitty delivery service. I couldn’t find any Black Friday sale on the site yesterday and it magically appeared this morning. Besides the deals and the RM1 shipping fee, Mysale also offer an extra 10% OFF, which will be deducted from your order at the checkout page. No discount code needed.
Lazada is currently offering discounts up to 94% OFF for their Black Friday sale from 28th to 30th November. Besides that the site is also doing a Black Friday Weekend Giveway. All you have to do is to shop from 28th November to 1st December in order to receive a gift card to shop on 12th December. I don’t shop at Lazada personally so check it out if you’re into finding lots of funky stuff.
There you have it! My top 8 picks of Black Friday / Cyber Monday Sale for 2014. There are a whole lot more that you can find from the web which I didn’t mention here. I was hoping that Sephora will follow the trend and do a Black Friday sale but it doesn’t seems like it. Or maybe there’s a Cyber Monday sale? Let’s hope so! Meanwhile, happy shopping girls!
