Find out more about Singles’ Day

What is Singles’ Day?

Singles’ Day is a Chinese holiday that takes place every year on 11 November. Originally it was a festival for young people to celebrate being single, hence the date, as 11 November is 1-1-1-1. Over the years, it has transformed into a huge sales event with sites like AliBaba generating roughly US$18 billion (nearly £14 billion) in revenue in 2016. It’s not just an event for those in China any more; Singles’ Day is global.

What kind of deals can I get on Singles’ Day?

Pretty much everything. Large sites that take part in the event and ship to the UK include AliExpress and Geekbuying, both of which offer an enormous range of products from fashion and homeware to electronics. More recently UK retailers such as boohoo and ASOS have taken part in Singles Day, offering big discounts off fashion and beauty.

It’s worth noting that as a Chinese holiday, Singles’ Day can be a good time to snap up a deal on Chinese-branded products like Huawei smartphones.


Which UK retailers take part in Singles’ Day?


Singles’ Day frequently asked questions

When is Singles’ Day 2020?

Singles’ Day falls on 11 November. This date was chosen because it is written down as 1-1-1-1 as they’re all singles.

How big is Singles’ Day in the UK?

It seems to be getting bigger every year! In the past 2 years we’ve seen a huge expansion in the UK retailers taking part in Singles Day. Whereas the sale event was previously limited to China-based companies it has since expanded to include retail giant such as boohoo, ASOS and LOOKFANTASTIC.

How much will delivery cost when shopping at Aliexpress or Geekbuying?

Sometimes the item you order will actually be shipped from a UK warehouse and shipping will be free and fast. Depending on the item though, it may be shipped from China and you should expect a longer lead time on delivery. Sites like Geekbuying offer free UK delivery on lots of items that weigh 2kg or less, even all the way from China.

Do I need to pay import taxes and customs duty when ordering from China?

This depends on the item you’re buying but if it’s an expensive electronic then probably, yes. You will be notified by Royal Mail of the need to go to your local Post Office to collect any parcel that requires custom tax to be paid. Custom taxes can add up quickly so before you order make sure it really was an unmissable deal.

Last year, many retailers offered up to 30% off high-end electronics as well as up to 50% off designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Tom Ford.
