When you hear the word flash sale, what comes to your mind immediately? 

Awesome deals that are only available for a short while, right?

Flash sales are amazing in the fact that the deals you get there are cheap. Cheaper than you’ll get everywhere else, both online and offline. 

Add Shopee to the equation and you know you’re in for an awesome ride. 

This month, Shopee is challenging your perception that IT fairs are the best places to get amazing IT deals. Because why travel when you can get these amazing IT deals right at home?

Their IT flash sale for GSS, called Best Price Guaranteed will start on 15 July 2017 at 12:00 a.m. (midnight). And it will go on all the way to 18 July, on a while-stocks-last basis.

So if you haven’t downloaded the Shopee app yet (what are you waiting for, seriously?), then you better do so fast (App Store or Google Play).

And because this flash sale is called “Best Price Guaranteed”, they’re serious about backing up their words. 

How? By putting money into it.

This means it’s the cheapest price in town guaranteed—if you find anything cheaper elsewhere online, they’ll match the difference by 120% (T&Cs apply).

And because we’re Shopee’s (self-proclaimed) best friend, you can use the promo code BESTPRICExGF to get $7 OFF with a minimum purchase of $15 if you’re new to the app.

Already a Shopee user (I bet you are)? We haven’t forgotten about you. After banging tables in Shopee’s office, we fought for a promo code for you as well; simply use this promo code to get $3 off with a minimum spend of $20: BESTPRICE3OFF
