You know how Amazon created Prime Day out of thin air and it became one of the biggest shopping days of the year? In China, mega-retailer Alibaba has done the same thing with Singles Day.
What is Singles Day? It’s a celebration of people that aren’t in relationships. It takes place on Nov. 11 every year — with all those ones representing the relationally unattached.
And since Alibaba introduced their massive Singles Day sales in 1993, other retailers have jumped on the trend. Singles Day is now the biggest shopping day in the world; in 2019 it had double the sales of Prime Day.
The U.S. hasn’t exactly latched onto Singles Day yet — mostly because we’re too busy with early Black Friday sales — but there are still some sales to pay attention to this year.
And plus, there are Veterans Day deals that overlap (because Nov. 11 is also Veteran’s Day).
AliExpress Singles Day Sale
Alibaba doesn’t have any physical stores in the U.S., but we can still shop Singles Day sales at AliExpress.com.
If you’re a first-time shopper, look out for pop-up coupons. I got two: $2 off a purchase of $3 or more and $6 off a purchase of $65 or more.
AliExpress is hyping Singles Day sales, including:
- Up to 80% off electronics and computer supplies
- Up to 54% off beauty, women’s clothing, toys & hobbies, and fashion accessories
- Up to 67% off home appliances
- Up to 50% off jewelry & watches, hair extensions, and wigs
Keep in mind, free standard shipping will take about a month to arrive to the U.S. (from China, mostly), and premium shipping costs about $30 to get it about two weeks sooner.
Walmart Nov. 11 Black Friday Sale
Walmart has divided their Black Friday sale into three different sales, and Singles Day and Veterans Day are part of their first wave.
Walmart Plus members get special early access to all the Walmart deals, including TVs, computers, and tablets, plus savings on movies and music. For them, the first wave starts Nov. 7. Then on Wednesday, Nov. 9, the sale hits physical stores.
Wish.com Black Friday Sale
Wish.com is having a Singles Day/early Black Friday sale throughout the month of November. There are a bunch of deals happening every day from Nov. 1 until Nov. 24 of up to 40% off. But it’s even better on Singles Day (Nov. 11), when you can get an extra 11% off all purchases — yes, that’s on top of the early Black Friday discounts or any other savings you can find.
Macy’s Veterans Day Sale
Macy’s is going to have their Veterans Day Sale until Nov. 11. Not only will Macy’s continue to give shoppers access to early Black Friday deals, but you can use the special coupon code SCORE for a coupon that’ll take an extra 20% off.
There are even more Veterans Day deals that you should know about if you have a military ID.
