With all the hassle (and dangers) of going to the mall these days, it’s no wonder we’re all shopping online. So, I’ll share some tips and tricks on how to save money on Lazada.
I usually buy on Shopee. I actually made a post about how to save money while Shopee-ing.
Lazada is one of the major e-commerce websites in Southeast Asia- the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
It has everything from baby products to gadgets. My husband, who’s into tech, likes to search for some good deals on Lazada.

Use Lazada vouchers
If you go to Lazada’s voucher page, you’ll see a lot of discounts from the participating stores. Do take note that most of them require a minimum spend.
Take advantage of their FREE shipping
To avail of Lazada’s FREE shipping, better buy in bulk. You can get free shipping for orders worth more than P1000. You could ask your neighbors if they want to do pasa-buy so you could all save money.
But if your order is below that amount, the shipping fee is P55 for Metro Manila while for those living outside the metro it’s P99
Play Lazgames to get coins and vouchers
Lazada has a lot of in-app games you can play to win coins and vouchers.
Some of these addicting games are Lazzie Hop, Mini Bump, Shop & Match, LazCity, and Popping Star.
Check your horoscope to earn coins
Yes, just reading your daily astrological sign on the Lazada app can earn you more coins! You just need to tap your screen, collect the 5 charms, and get the coins.
How to redeem coins and vouchers
Now that you have a lot of coins, you can easily use them by doing the following steps.
- On your Lazada app, go to ‘Accounts’ and click ‘My Coins.’
- Tap ‘Go to Reward Store’ and review the terms and conditions.
- Hit Exchange on the confirmation pop-up and get your voucher or sponsored gift.
Do your research before buying anything
Probably the best advice in any shopping platform is to meticulously read up on the product you intend to buy.
This is especially crucial when you’re making big purchases like gadgets or home appliances. Read the product description thoroughly.
Where is it made? Does it come with a warranty? Have many people bought it?
Don’t forget to read the customer reviews too. How do they find the product? What was the reason they gave it just a one-star rating?
Doing your research beforehand will probably save you from the headache of returning a product you bought.
And before buying something from Lazada, read up on the return coverage you can find under the Service details on each product.
By the way, you might also want to follow their social media accounts to get updates on their latest promos.
