Singles Day is a massive worldwide shopping day where there are huge savings to be had on prices that are already competitive.
As most of the goods will be coming from China, factor in the time you'll have to wait, any possible import costs (under £15 should have no VAT, import or handling fees) and what you would do if something went wrong with a large purchase - it may not be easy to return for a refund.
There are however bargains to be had, so whether it's electricals, clothing or stocking fillers for the kids, it's worth having a browse on the links below.

When is Singles Day UK?
Singles Day 2017 in the UK falls on November 11th, or as it's more commonly written, 11.11.
What is Singles Day?
Singles Day started back in the 1990s, when unattached students embraced their single status by buying themselves a gift. It always falls on 11.11 and the "Singles Day" reference is in the date : one-one-one-one.
Singles Day vs Black Friday
Singles Day has been labelled the "World's Biggest Shopping Day" and while that may be true in that more money is spent then globally than any other day including Black Friday, it's not really accurate here in the UK. Lots of people in the UK are still unaware of Singles Day and prefer to hold out for the big brand Black Friday bargains.
Does Amazon do Singles Day?
Singles Day is still relatively unique to sellers in China, so while there will be Singles Day deals on Amazon, these will be from 3rd party sellers based in China.
