Yes, that’s right! Lazada is seriously expanding its portfolio of products to include many services and features that us Filipino’s have been clamoring for. And its all coming on Lazada’s 9.9 Big Discovery Sale.
So starting September 9, 2019, you can now apply for loans online through Lazada without a credit card!
Wow! We cover tech, and you have no idea how much this means to a lot of consumers. The Number 1 thing we get asked when phones come out is if they can pay for it with installment or loan but they don’t have credit cards. We have to grit our teeth and tell them its not possible. But now it is.
Now, you can apply for a loan from Lazada’s e-financing partners such as BillEase, pera247, and TendoPay from a range of PHP 5,000 to PHP 50,000. Allowing you to buy that new smartphone without having to walk into a store and ask for an installment loan there. All you have to do is to complete the application process and submit the needed requirements for the loan. And yes, they do offer installment options to pay for the loan.
But Lazada’s not stopping there. A common pain point among Filipino’s will be addressed because now you can pay your utility bills using Lazada. So instead of lining up to different payment centers, you can go online and pay for Meralco, Maynilad, Manila Water, Albay Power & Energy, Davao Light, VECO, Metropolitan Cebu Water and Prime Water all in the comfort of your home – or wherever you are using the mobile app.
To promote this feature, Lazada is giving back up to PHP 300 cashback if you pay using your Lazada Wallet from now until November 2019! Not bad!
So Lazada’s innovating here a little bit. If you’re familiar with pre-ordering smartphones to reserve your unit (or if you remember the traditional reservation fee), this is essentially that. You can reserve (pre-sale) selected items on Lazada even before the sale and that item will be reserved to you until you pay within the validity period to fully receive the item.
Meaning you can reserve units now and pay the lowered prices on 9.9! This gives early birds more reliable opportunities to secure units and not have to rely on pure luck to grab one on sale day.
But what about those consumers who have nobody at home to receive packages? Lazada has something for that too.
Lazada has offered pickup points at SM Malls before, but back then we would only see SM Makati as an option. Today there’s a lot more places you can pick up your item in many select SM Malls and GrowSari branches. The full list is supposedly in this link, but it hasn’t shown up for us when we click it so we’re assuming the list will show up on 9.9. Either way, you can always look up the list of collection points on checkout!
Well the craziest new service that Lazada will start offering is this: Helicopter Tours through Manila or Taal / Tagaytay. And as someone who has no idea how you book these tours in the first place, and if you’re looking for that small romantic little tour or gift to loved one, this might just do the trick! You even get discounted prices – check them out below.
Last but not least, it wouldn’t be a Lazada sale without huge discounts and vouchers. So make sure to check your favorite brands and/or your wishlist right now for discounted prices. You’ll see discounted products with a 9.9 logo and it’s upcoming sale price so you can see how much you’ll save!
Here’s a few examples of products to go on sale:
I know that list isn’t all tech related, but that’s because that’s just a list that Lazada provided for us. However, drop by Lazada and check items and your wishlists, and you’ll see there’s a lot more. Flash sales too.
So be ready, wishlist your items now or reserve them, load up your Lazada Wallet, and get ready for Monday, 9.9!
