Grab a bargain or splurge on that big-ticket item this Singles' Day

It’s an exciting time of the year: Singles’ Day sales mark the start of the 2023 sale season, with Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Boxing Day shopping festivities to come.

Commencing the week of Saturday, 11 November, Singles’ Day sales originated in China and were originally a celebration for unmarried people. Today, the event has grown from a day of flash sales to multi-day deals on fashion, accessories, homewares and tech items, making it one of the world’s largest shopping events.
