Most of us know about the 11.11 sale invented by the Chinese, and the Black Friday sale invented by the Americans. Whenever these online sales take place, networks will congest, people take leave just to shop, and staff are forced to work through the night to ensure everything runs smoothly.
You can add one more day to your online shopping calendar: 9.9 Mobile Shopping Day.
Shopee’s biggest sale of the year is back for round two on 9 September 2017. Thankfully the sale will take place on a Saturday (at least for this year).
Shopee, an eCommerce platform that has made shopping on our phones a habit, will be having a massive sale for 24 hours on 9.9 Mobile Shopping Day. To ensure that it gets the same fanfare as 11.11 or Black Friday, they’ve gone all out to make this event as big as possible.
Or, in other words, as cheap as possible.
And also as exciting as possible.
New users can get $7 off your first order (min spend $15) with the promo code 99GFx7
Pretty shocking that you’re getting a promo code even when there’s a crazy sale with prices up to 90% off, isn’t it?
Here’s a tip from us – keep your Saturday plan-free because starting at 12 midnight, for one day only, Shopee will be having so many promotions and irresistible deals that you definitely do not want to miss out on.

Already excited and pumped up for 9.9 Mobile Shopping Day? Well, there’s a lot more.
Second Wave: Shopee Mall Mega Sale
(Starts at 12am midnight!)
If you think Shopee is opening a mall in Orchard, you’re wrong.
Just recently, Shopee launched Shopee Mall, a B2C platform. In non-business terms, it means that sellers in Shopee Mall are businesses instead of normal people like you and me.
And in shoppers’ terms, it means that all products, ranging from the thousands from top sellers and leading brands, come with 100% Authentic Guarantee, Free Shipping and 15-Day Free Return Policy.
When the clock strikes midnight on 9 September 2017, a wave of products from Shopee Mall will see their prices slashes… and trust us when we tell you: the discounts are crazy good.
How good, you ask?
Here are a few to whet your appeitite.
Neutrogena Fine Fairness Light Mask at 24% off
Original Price: $119
Discounted Price: $89
As a guy, I’m not going to pretend as if I know much about this, but my female colleague told me anything Neutrogena is good so I should get one. This mask supposedly treats acne and makes your skin clearer and healthier. Who needs makeup when you have Neutrogena, right?
Dibea C01 Wireless Vacuum Cleaner at 33% Off
Original Price: $148
Discounted Price: $99
One of the most useful household appliances has to be the vacuum cleaner: within minutes, you can up the value of your house like it’s some magical device. Years ago, it’s common to see people struggling with their vacuum cleaner cables, or switching power points because of that damn short cable. Nowadays, people are either using robot vacuum cleaner or a cordless one.
If you don’t want to jump all the way to robot cleaners, this would be a right fit for you. It’s a 2-in-1 vacuum cleaner that you can use continuously for 40 minutes, weighing only 2.8 kg. Best of all? It’s not that noisy, so no one would kick you if you decide to vacuum your room at 3:00 a.m. (but seriously, what were you thinking?).
There are many more products in the Shopee Mall Mega Sale, but if I were to list down every one of them, the sale might have ended by the time you finish this article.
So you get the idea: lots of cool products starting from 12:00 a.m. on 9 September 2017. Remember to camp in your app minutes before the sale starts!
Third Wave: Everything at 99 Cents sale
(Starts at 12am midnight!)
I knew it and Shopee knew it: it’s a 9.9 day, so how can there not be 99-cent products?
A number of products will be sold at a mere 99 cents, so this means this sale is certainly going to be wildly popular.
Like the Shopee Mall Mega Sale, this sale starts at exactly 12:00 a.m. on 9 September 2017. So if you’re planning a late night out with friends or to get some much-needed shut eye after a long week of work… think again!
What items can go to such a low price? If you guessed an eraser or a pencil, you’re wrong.
Fullmark Universal Inkjet Ink (100ml) at 83% Off
Original Price: $5.95
Discounted Price: $0.99
Yeah, no erasers or pencils, because it’s 2017: use ink instead lah. Everyone knows the ink usually cost more than the printer, so on 9 September 2017, you can finally say that your ink is cheaper than your printer #justsaying
White One Pack Milk Sheet at 78% Off
Original Price: $4.50
Discounted Price: $0.99
You must be thinking, How can a pack of milk be $4.50?
Well, hold your horses. This isn’t a drink, but face masks. Now, $4.50 seems reasonable, but how about getting it all the way down to $0.99?
That’s one milky way to save both your wallet and your skin.
These are just a few of the many items that would be at mere $0.99. Simply go to the “Home” tab on 12:00 a.m. on 9 September and you’ll be awed.
Just don’t be awed for too long, because the fastest fingers get the deals (remember what we said about camping in-app before the sale begins?).
Four Wave: Shopee 9.9 Gift Boxes
(Starts at 12am midnight!)
Okay, this is cute. Just too cute.
Shopee will also be releasing three gift boxes at 12 midnight this Saturday. The three types of boxes have been carefully curated and catered for both guys and girls. Each box is worth over $150 but will retail for a mere $59.90 *gasp*
Here, take a peek at the boxes:
Perfect for a birthday gift, isn’t it?
Next, for the ladies. In fact, there are two choices for ladies. This…
If you’re like one of us who loves giving gift boxes instead of a clear-cut gift, this is like a marriage made in heaven for you.
Remember, Everything is on 9 September 2017
