                                  Tips

                                  Combing through the various e-commerce sites, we have observed a certain pattern that will lead to the greatest savings.

                                  It is always important to do your research and have the fastest fingers. Sites like Shopee and Lazada offer attractive vouchers but are limited. Always be on the lookout for these vouchers and snag them early.

                                  For sites like Shopee, they have specific rules on how the vouchers can be stacked. For example, you can put a discount voucher and free shipping voucher to lower the price. Always look at their blurb to find out how you can effectively stack your vouchers.

                                  Some sites offer time-sensitive deals or flash deals. If you wish to find something on a particular site, always be aware of these flash deals as they often would be the best deals you can find in this GSS.

                                  Credit cards or bank promotions are usually stackable with other promotions. Look carefully at what the site offers and try to get the promotion that your bank or credit card offers.

                                  Lastly, some fashion sites will recommend based on profile. It is then crucial to hover around the type of items you like and spend more time on the site so that their system can detect a pattern and recommend a suitable promo code or voucher for you.

                                  Conclusion
