Having gone straight through 11.11 and Black Friday, 12.12 may be your last chance to grab that deal you've been waiting for. The next big sale will probably 2.2 next year, so that's quite a wait.
Instead of the best deals we've found, we want to highlight the best products we've reviewed so far that we think you should be picking up. So let's get started.
Xiaomi BeBird M9 Pro
The BeBird M9 Pro lets you look right into your ear canal as you scrape out tons of icky ear wax. It comes with various tools designed to help you get the best scraping experience. We've seen it as cheap as S$39. Click here for the full review.
Active noise-cancelling (ANC) headphones are a life-saver when it comes to long-haul flights. For those who are reluctant to pay top dollar for the new Apple AirPods Max, Bose or Sony, give the Mixcder E10 a shot. We've seen it as cheap as S$68. Full review here.
Acer Predator XB253Q
Our top value pick for gaming is the Acer Predator XB253Q. It's a high refresh rate monitor that hits the sweet spot for refresh rate, resolution and price. The lowest price we've seen is S$355 on Shopee, but the official store on Lazada does have it as low as S$368 when it goes on sale. Full review here.
SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless
The versatile SteelSeries Arctis 1 wireless gaming headset not only works with PCs, it will also connect wirelessly with gaming consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. We've seen it dip to around S$150 during sales. Full review here.
Balsang Air Fryer Square Silicone Pot
Korean brand Balsang’s silicone pot is a great solution to keep your air fryer clean. It sits on top of the basket, collecting the oil from air frying instead of letting it drain to the bottom of the pan. It comes in various different sizes and shapes, too. We've seen it as low as S$15 for the smallest size, so wait for the 12.12 sale, if you can. Full review here.
Mcdodo Lightning Cable
Be impressed with the high quality of the nylon-braided Mcdodo’s Lighting Cable, which also comes in two other versions: Micro-USB and USB Type-C. There's three different lengths: 0.5 m, 1.2 m, and 1.8 m. The S$5.50 cable isn't normally discounted, but it's so cheap it doesn't matter. Full review here.
Xiaomi 45W USB-C Adaptor
The Xiaomi 45W USB-C (CDQ02ZM) power adaptor will charge your smartphone, iPad, Nintendo Switch or your notebook quickly, and is compact enough to carry around without being a burden. The charger is S$30 online, and hasn't yet been discounted. Full review here.
Ring Peephole Cam
Never miss a delivery again with the Ring Peephole Cam. This motion-activated video doorbell will alert you when it detects a visitor. Door knocks will also trigger a smartphone notification, and of course, the doorbell chimes when pressed. It's available for S$199, and has yet to be discounted. Still it's a worthy buy if it goes on sale. Full review here.
Tefal RK7401 Rice Cooker 1.5L
The Tefal RK7401 is a 1.5L multi-functional rice cooker that does it all, from cooking fluffy rice, porridge to steaming food, boiling soup and more. Like standard rice cookers, it comes with a measuring cup, and also has standard water level indicators. S$139 seems to be the lowest price so far, but expect it to dip slightly during 12.12. Full review here.
Eufy HomeVac S11 Go
Smart home brand Eufy (of Anker fame) is the latest entrant to the rapidly-growing cordless stick vacuum cleaner business. Its HomeVac S11 Go is touted to offer 120AW (air watts) of suction power at full tilt. The lowest price we've seen it was on Amazon at S$180 from its S$249 retail. It will be on sale during 12.12 at Lazada. Full review here.
Xiaomi Mijia Lint Remover
The Xiaomi Mijia Lint Remover hits the sweet spot in clearing up lint without the poor performance found in similar but cheaper devices. The Mijia Lint Remover packs a rechargeable 1,300mAH battery and five cutting blades. The lowest price we've seen is around S$12.50. Full review here.
8BitDo SN30 Pro
If you need an extra controller for your Switch, PC, or Android device, the 8BitDo SN30 Pro is a reliable option. Its biggest draw is probably the retro design — it pays homage to the SNES controller, but is clearly made for modern games with analog sticks and a full set of shoulder buttons. The lowest we've seen is S$45, but prices have since increased. Here's to hoping for a sale on 12.12. Full review here.
