1. Apple goods

Apple products are infamous for their stable, unimpinging price. A discount on Apple products seems totally impossible. Until now.

Try online shopping platform Lazada, where you’ll be able to discover Apple products of every kind, at various prices. As a retailer as well as a marketplace of electronics, discovering Apple products there isn’t surprising at all. Also, the same Apple product may be sold at differing prices – which means you can take your pick from the cheapest Apple seller. At the same time, Shopback lets you earn up to 4% Cashback with whatever electronics you buy.

4. Branded goods

Designer clothes, luxury bags, and the like may be pretty – but the price tag may not be. Prices of luxury items can go as far up as five-digits. With that, it’s only natural that the average shopper does not splurge on branded items too often. However, there are sites like Reebonz and Shopbop that house luxury brands, usually for lower prices. Granted, some of the items you find are preloved, but they’ve been carefully selected to ensure top quality.
