Treat yourself this Singles Day with the best sales happening now

11:11 – instead of making a wish, make a wish list!

Singles Day, or the 11.11 sale as we know it, is the perfect time to treat yourself, or even a friend, during the busiest time of the year.

But preparing for the Singles Day sales event is no easy feat. First, you have to know when the sale starts – which is held on November 11 every year – then you need to figure out how to buy in the Singles Day sales, and finally, you need to know what you want to buy.

Lucky for you, we’ve broken it all down below so you can hit the online stores hosting sales that coincide with the event, and score major savings this year.

What is Singles Day sales?

Singles Day, also known as 11.11 or Double 11, is a shopping holiday that originated in China and has become one of the largest online shopping events in the world.

It’s always held on November 11 each year and was created as a day for single people to celebrate being single – to counteract Valentine’s Day, if you will.

Is Singles Day or Black Friday better?

Both Singles Day and Black Friday offer substantial discounts and promotions, but you’ll notice that the nature of the deals may differ.

Black Friday is traditionally associated with in-store sales, doorbusters, and long lines at physical retail locations, while Singles Day is primarily an online shopping event.

Cyber Monday, which follows Black Friday, is focused on online deals, but more on that here.
