Many people have asked me how I maximise the saving when I purchase baby formula, so I wanted to share some quick tips and tricks!
Wait for Online Sales
Popular online shopping sites like Lazada and 11street have online sales at least once a month, especially 2-3 weeks before major festivals like Hari Raya, Chinese New Year and Christmas. So wait for the online sales where you can easily get discount vouchers/coupons.
Look for Seller Promotion
When you search for a product in online shopping sites, you’ll find many different sellers selling the same product at different price. Don’t select a seller by just looking at the selling price, go into the product page and sometimes you’ll find special promotion by the seller. After taking this special promotion into consideration, you may save even more!
Purchase in Bulk
The more you buy, the more you save. When you shop in Lazada, look for this opportunity to save more when you purchase more.
Purchase via ShopBack
This is my favourite money saving tip! Other than the discount by online shopping sites, you can actually earn cash rebates via the ShopBack program. I’ve been a member of the cash rebate program for years now, and it is promoted by major banks in Malaysia like Maybank, Public Bank, AmBank, etc. That’s an assurance that this is a legit company that genuinely pays rebates.
Here’s a screenshot of my account as of 18th January 2018. I’ve already earned RM 615.71 (look at Lifetime Earnings below).
The cash rebate is a certain percentage of the total transaction amount. For example, if you bought an item worth RM 100 from Lazada and the cash rebate percentage is 11%, you’ll get RM 11 cash rebate. Look at some of the transactions showing how much I’ve earned from the purchases I made at Lazada and 11street:
How do I earn Cashback from ShopBack?
- Sign up for a ShopBack account here. BONUS: You’ll get RM 10 bonus by signing up.
- Before you shop at your favorite online shopping site, make sure you first login to your ShopBack account. Browse for your favourite online stores and click on any store you want to visit to be re-directed to the store in a new tab.
- Shop and complete your order within the same tab so that ShopBack can track the amount you had spent and credit the cashback to your ShopBack account.
- Repeat the entire process starting at ShopBack every time you make a purchase.
That’s it! It’s as simple as that. Sign up now and start earning cashback!
