We love getting good deals, and most especially in this time of pandemic, when every peso you save counts.

So how do you make the most of an online shopping sale? By scoring more discounts through the special promos and following the shopping mechanics. It also doesn’t hurt to join the games—what’s there to lose, right?

Avid Lazada customers share some of the shopping hacks they swear by.

 

Collect coins

Play LazGames and complete missions to collect coins, which you can exchange for Lazada or Seller Vouchers as well as Sponsored Gifts that you prefer. Win prizes and coins easier with new games such as Super Claw and FunFarm.

Join the games to collect coins.

Collect vouchers

Simply log on to the Lazada app and collect free shipping vouchers, Lazada Wallet payment vouchers, and store vouchers for more discounts. You can also use 249 Grab rewards points to redeem a 10 percent off Lazada discount voucher.

“Collect all vouchers possible, this way you can save more money when purchasing on Lazada than paying full-price in offline stores,” says 18-year-old John Raven Ramos, who has over 30 vouchers collected. He plans to use the vouchers to purchase gadgets, men’s fragrance and clothing, as well as home appliances at the Mid-Year Bounce Back Sale.

 

Top-up/Cash-in on your Lazada Wallet

Win up to PHP 10,000 wallet credits when you cash in from July 8 to 14. All you need to do is go to the wallet page, enter cash in amount, select preferred cash in method, and click confirm. After a successful cash in, play Balloon Blast, and pop any balloon to earn prizes.

“Top up your Lazada Wallet for a chance to win mega prizes. Best to top up prior to the sale to get a chance to win Lazada Wallet credits instead of topping up upon purchase, you won’t have a chance to play Balloon Blast,” shares Gennise Leybag, a 32-year-old business owner and first-time mom who stockpiles her baby’s needs such as diapers, baby wash, and powder during Lazada shopping sales.

 

Choose your payment option wisely

Lazada has bank partners offering additional discounts. BDO is giving away 15 percent off when you use your BDO Visa Credit Card on Lazada. Get up to PHP 700 off with Citibank, and up to PHP 500 off with Robinsons Bank. You can also avail of Reebok item at 5% off when you use your EastWest Bank Card to purchase.

“Maximize and utilize other payment vouchers or discounts upon check out,” adds Gennise.

Tune in to LazLive: Watch daily livestreams on the Lazada app to win exclusive vouchers. Don’t forget to play Lazada Quiz daily hosted by Gino Quillamor, Bea Benedicto, Riki Flores, Rei Germar, Carlo Ople, Aryanna Epperson, and Paula Paralejo Fernandez on LazLive and get a chance to win P750 worth of Lazada Wallet Credits. Also, watch out for the 15-hour livestream session on July 15 where our Laz Get Famous winners reveal products up for grabs that are up to 45 percent off during the live event.

Take note of the price drop timeslots.

Set your alarms for select price drop time slots

Get the lowest prices on selected items from brands and sellers. Items as low as PHP 0.71 are available on Flash Sale during Lazada’s Mid-Year Sale. Also, look out for Mega Price Drop and Brand Mega offers at select timeslots such as 12AM-2AM, 12PM-2PM, 4PM-6PM for Mega Price Drop, and 6PM-8PM for Brand Mega Offers.

“Based on my experience, bigger discounts from brands are most available between 12AM to 2AM,” shares Christian Iwag, a 23-year-old customer service advocate. He is constantly on the lookout for brand offers/discounts on essential needs as he can purchase twice as many products on Lazada compared to when he purchases these in the grocery.

Simply go to the Price Slash Page, click ‘slash now,’ tap ‘slash it’ and invite to start, click confirm, and share the link on social media.
