The holidays are coming! It's the time of the year where numerous sales sprout up to entice thousands of spending. But it doesn't have to be a trap for useless things. As a freelancer, it might be the chance to upgrade your gear.
If you missed the Black Friday sale, you still have another chance on today's Cyber Monday deals! It is the Monday following Black Friday boasting heavily discounted cyber deals just for you. Think laptops, cameras, memory cards. It's endless!
But how do you take advantage? Here are websites and some tips to help you up your game as a Filipino Freelancer!
Use Rebates Such as Shopback
If you don't know already, there are websites and apps that give you rebates just by accessing the app. One of which is Shopback's Cyber Monday Deals. It's easy!
Just download the app. And choose the website you're eyeing to buy from. For example, you want to participate in Lazada's Cyber Monday deals. You just have to:
Open the Shopback app
And then it redirects you to Lazada's app
That's it. When you finish buying from Lazada, Shopback will reward a rebate (as of the moment it's at 9% for Cyber Monday) just because you accessed Lazada thru them.
You can also use this app for Klook, Grab, Agoda, Food Panda, Shopee, and so much more! After accumulating points, you can withdraw the cash amount afterward! Nifty, right?
Lazada Cyber Deals!
And speaking of Lazada, this online retailer offers great discounts for electronics today. Check out their website for discounted laptops from Lenovo and Phones from XiaoMi.
If you need camera accessories or your very own camera, Henry's Professional can be your go-to website for your photography needs. As of this moment, they have markdown on most point and shoot and mirrorless cameras for your freelancing photography needs.
But before buying here, make sure that you have a US Address because the customs in the Philippines charge so much. And sometimes the taxes are priced close or more than the item itself.
To get a US shipping address, I've tried the services of my shopping box. It allows you to shop from the US without the hassles of going through our customs. They even deliver the parcel right at your doorstep.
With these tips, you can now shop at discounted prices all over the world. But make sure to stop yourself from overspending these holidays! Don't let the hunger games kill you. Upgrade your gear and save up for your freelancing future. Ciao!
