Every year, on the 11th of November, there’s a Chinese holiday which blows every sale you’ve ever seen out of the water. It’s called Singles’ Day and this year, we’ve teamed up with GearBest to bring you the hottest deals in the world. Originally created by students in Nanjing University in 1993 to celebrate being single, the holiday has quickly grown to become the Chinese equivalent of Black Friday in the US and UK – a day where gigantic sales are held on technology products of all kinds. You can only truly grasp how big Singles’ Day is when you compare it to Black Friday in the US. Last year, a total of $1.656 billion was spent online in Black Friday sales. For Singles’ Day? That number was $14.3 billion – on one website. So why is it so much bigger? It’s simple, Singles’ Day has the biggest and best deals that can be found anywhere. Let’s see what they’ve got planned, shall we? Daily flash sales There’s nothing like a flash sale to get your heart pumping and your fingers racing towards the checkout page, and GearBest are preparing some pretty amazing deals just for you.
