Smart Shopping Online With Lazada’s Mr Kiasu |
Have you recently made any online purchases? If you are Malaysian, the answer is probably yes.
Since the Movement Control Order was put in place in March to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, online shopping has become the way of life for Malaysians in the new normal.
Young and old are now turning to online solutions for their everyday essentials.
When the country passed the slightly lax conditional movement order in May, e-commerce platforms like Lazada Malaysia still remain the one stop shopping lifestyle destination for us to meet our daily needs and c has also become a lifeline for SMEs previously making ends meet.
In fact, some local farming businesses like the Cameron Farmers even became a national sensation over the weekend selling fresh produce on Lazada. We Malaysians really love our fruits and vegetables.
Today, as we adapt to the salvage movement’s control order with the government’s economic stimulus package, online shopping will be here to stay – rooted in our Malaysian culture.
But online shopping isn’t just about clicking a button, you also need to make smart purchases! For those who are new to the digital space, this may seem scary and unknown. But don’t worry, we have Mr. Kiasu from Lazada here to share seven ways to maximize your savings on Lazada Malaysia.
Tip # 1 from Mr. Kiasu: Be on the lookout for stimulus packages and online incentives
To date, most of you would have watched countless special announcements on TV or on your various screens regarding ePenjana’s eWallet RM50 credit, Shop Malaysia Online coupons, and more.
It is now easier than ever to save by buying online, because we are encouraged to stimulate the digital economy.
On Lazada Malaysia, users can save up to RM36 each with vouchers and discounts on the #KitaBantuKita platform by July 31, 2020 via:
- Instantly usable, no minimum expenses, RM5 credit for new users of the Lazada wallet
- RM10 discount voucher to be instantly recovered for new Lazada users when activating the account
- RM3 voucher to be instantly recovered for all users of the Lazada wallet
- RM3 coupon to be instantly recovered for all users of the Touch ‘n Go electronic wallet on Lazada
- Unique RM5 cash back for first purchase on Lazada by new Touch ‘n Go eWallet users
- Unique instant cash back of up to 10 RM for the first reload on the Lazada wallet
Tip # 2 from Mr. Kiasu: Add to cart when hunting
All seasoned online shoppers know that speed is the name of the game, come online during the sales season, and there will be one soon on July 7: the highly anticipated mid-year Lazada 7.7 super sale.
These are what we call the Mega Days, where the discounts are off the charts, but you have to know where to look – Mesti Beli and Crazy Flash Sale.
Lazada’s Mesti Beli promotions are the ultimate Malaysian shopping guide of 7.7 for great deals.
On the other hand, the crazy flash sale is where you get special discounts of up to 90% and also RM1 offers on selected flash sale items on the semi-annual 7.7 super sale from 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. , July 7.
But here’s the rub, these deals sell out in seconds. It is therefore preferable to add it to the basket during the hunt, a few days before. Next, prepare your Lazada wallet when the clock strikes midnight on Mega Day to go to the checkout without overloading the capacity of Malaysia’s payment infrastructure.
In short, recharging your Lazada wallet before Mega Day helps you avoid payment failures when the checkout race begins at midnight, when every second counts to take advantage of the best deals.
Tip # 3 from Mr. Kiasu: Always Chup Dulu!
If you think prices are low now, it can go even lower if you know what you’re doing.
A few weeks before the Mega Day sales, Lazada generally offers the Chup Dulu function on the platform. The Chup Dulu feature allows customers to book the most popular deals on the platform by paying a small, non-refundable deposit (subject to terms and conditions).
So if you are a Mr. Kiasu like me and you don’t want your favorite deals to be ripped off, Chup Dulu is for you!
Not only that, when you Chup Dulu, the low price will drop even lower, resulting in more savings.
This Lazada 7.7, Chup Dulu mid-year super sale begins by July 6, 2020.
Tip # 4 from Mr. Kiasu: Know your source with LazMall
It’s no secret that shopping online requires skill to navigate a digital market, similar to shopping in a physical night market.
However, for those who prefer authentic branded products with reliable services when shopping online, Lazada Malaysia has a LazMall section on its platform, a virtual shopping mall that includes thousands of official brand flagship stores.
LazMall has three promises – 100% authenticity, easy returns in 15 days, and newly extended guaranteed delivery.
You can be assured that all products from the flagship LazMall stores are managed by the brands themselves and come directly from an authorized distributor.
What happens if you receive a non-genuine LazMall product? You get your money twice
What happens if you receive a defective LazMall product? You have 15 days to claim your refund
What happens if your LazMall delivery is late? You receive an automatic RM5 credit discount
Smart shopping is easy.
Tip # 5 from Mr. Kiasu: Find and Compare Prices
Nothing is more frustrating than buying something and then finding it cheaper elsewhere.
However, comparing prices has never been easier on Lazada Malaysia with LazChoice, the lowest-priced destination for quality products that meet your everyday needs.
LazChoice products, which are the lowest guaranteed prices, eliminate the bulk of smart shopping, as you will receive a 200% discount on the price difference if you find this exact product cheaper elsewhere (subject to terms and conditions).
Fun fact: just for the Lazada 7.7 mid-year Super Sale, the promotion of the lowest guaranteed price is extended across the platform for any product with “CHUP DULU” and “MID YEAR SALE” in its title.
Of course, research isn’t just about prices. You should also check the ratings and reviews of a seller and a product.
But, that’s another story when shopping on LazChoice, as Lazada uses AI and machine learning to analyze its entire platform to select sellers and trendy products with good history and good marks.
You can be assured of both price and quality when shopping on LazChoice as it guarantees daily value for money, with free delivery notes too!
Tip # 6 from Mr. Kiasu: The larger the size of the basket, the more worth your free shipping
Everyone loves free shipping, but few people realize that Lazada Malaysia has an evergreen page dedicated to free shipping!
For the Lazada 7.7 mid-year Super Sale only, there will also be vouchers for the scale of the platform to be collected, which offers a discount of 8 RM with a minimum expenditure of only 15 RM.
Since the number of vouchers available is limited, they should be used judiciously to maximize savings.
Using the add to cart feature, you can increase the size of your cart and order all of your purchases in a single payment transaction – minimizing your number of shipping costs and maximizing the value of the free delivery note.
It is much cheaper than having multiple cases and accumulating relatively higher shipping costs.
Mr. Kiasu’s Tip # 7: Earn LazCoins via Shoppertainment
Mr. Kiasu’s latest guide to stretching your digital Ringgit and maximizing your savings is the most fun.
Believe it or not, you can earn LazCoins by playing FunFarm and completing missions.
Once you have collected enough LazCoins, you can redeem prizes in the form of vouchers or free gifts in the rewards shop.
