Don’t buy anything on Lazada yet

I was just browsing Lazada the other day looking for a microwave oven when I promptly got distracted by a microphone and completely forgot to buy it. But, it was a good thing I did because in case you missed it, Lazada’s got a special Mid-Year Festival event that will take place next week where they’ll have a whole bunch of sales and events.

So, if you’ve been planning to shop on Lazada, you might want to hold your horses.

Lazada’s Mid-Year Festival will unfold over the month of July, with a whole bunch of events peppered throughout, but the big sale day will take place on the 12th of July 2019. On that day, the company is so confident that their products will have the lowest price that they will be providing a Lowest Price Guarantee on products in LazMall. With this, Lazada says that if shoppers “spot a lower regular selling price on an identical, in-stock, non-promotional product on another online store” they should let Lazada know and they’ll pay you “two times the difference”.

While that looks like a nice gesture, if you look at the criteria, the probability of you finding a non-promo, identical, regular priced product that’s more affordable than the same product on promo in LazMall is pretty slim. Plus, it looks like they’ll only pay you the difference, not the price of the product. But, that’s not really the point of this. The point Lazada wants you to know is that the stuff will be really affordable on that day, which is great.

Besides that, Lazada’s also got a bunch of events lined up throughout the month. From the now until the 11th of July, you can capitalise on their “Chup Dulu” event which allows you to reserve selected items by paying a non-refundable deposit via the Lazada App. Then, on the 12th, you can pay the balance to secure your purchase and have the item shipped to you.

Lazada’s also running a GUESS IT livestream game on the Lazada app every day from now until the 12th of July. In this game, you need to tune into the livestream and guess the prices of the products that they’ll feature during the show to win rewards. The livestream will happen at 12pm, 1pm, 7pm, 8pm, 9pm, and 10pm every day.

Finally, Lazada will also be running deals with their partners from Burger King, Malaysia Airlines, Mastercard, and Citibank, as well as a Big Baby Fair that’ll take place from the 12th to 16th of July 2019.
