I’ve said this before and I’m gonna say it all over again! It’s my favorite month of the year because it’s Christmas! And I love the thought of buying gifts for others because we will think of them and gift them stuffs that we think they will like. Imagine the smile on their faces when they open it!
Alibaba 12.12 Sale is Here!
The season of gift-giving are in full swing this year as I will be joining Clumsy Boy’s colleagues for Secret Santa! In conjunction with Alibaba 12.12 Year-End Sale 2018, there’s RMB10 billion worth of cash vouchers, promo codes, and discounts up for grab exclusively on Taobao and Tmall platforms from 8th – 12th December 2018. We were given a budget of RM 50 per person. Of course I can buy gifts anywhere with that amount of money, but in order to buy more for less, I’m gonna shop at Taobao!
I think it’s very thoughtful of them to have a dedicated gifting page on Alibaba flagship marketplaces. This page features curated products for different individual needs and occasions such as ‘For Christmas’, ‘For New Year’, ‘For Him’, ‘For Her’, ‘For Family’, and ‘For Pet’. Super helpful for gift inspirations because I have just started to plan for this and I have no idea what to get yet.
“12.12 Year-End Sale” will be the second biggest 24-hour sale after 11.11 sale. This time, Alibaba wants to add in more fun elements by gamifying Taobao platform with an interactive e-commerce retail gamification known as “12.12 Year-End Sale 2018 Treasure Hunt”. This is the chance for us to unlock unique promo codes to enjoy RMB200 OFF with minimum spending of RMB999 on 12th December! Get clues to unlock these unique promo codes on Taobao and Taobao’s Facebook Page on 8th and 9th December 2018 at 10am, and 12th December 2018 at 12pm.
