Thank you so much for the overwhelming response to the previous Lazada Surprise Box. Once again, Lazada Singapore (#LazadaSG) has engaged me for the GSS Surprise Box from 6 to 8 June! Like other Lazada sale, the GSS Sale promises up to 90% off products, as well as flash deals every 2 hours. I really enjoy scrutinizing the flash deals to uncover some unbelievable prices.
Some of you might opt to shop at other overseas websites to save that few dollars and cents, but having made many purchases on Lazada, from S$4 to S$500, I am pleased with their service and warranty. On one occasion, I bought a product on Lazada which was fulfilled by an overseas seller. After using it for less than a week, it spoiled, so I submitted a return form which was processed promptly. I got my money back and Lazada even added credit for my next purchase. Go global, shop local! #goglobalshoplocal
What is a Lazada Surprise Box?
It is a box with product items worth at least S$100. The buyer will not know what items lie inside the box until he/she unwraps it.
How much does the Box cost?
S$29. Yes, only S$29! And you get items worth at least S$100. That’s over 70% discount!
What’s in the Surprise Box?
That’s what you are about to find out! Lazada sent me the TP-Link Surprise Box and I’m going to reveal what’s in it!
Then where’s the element of surprise?
So smart! Hence I will be revealing just 1 item in the box.
How many items are in the box?
There is more than 1 item. But if you observe the photos in this post, you would know.
The Reveal: Lazada X TP-Link Surprise Box
As the name suggests, this surprise box consists of items from TP-Link, a brand known for their home networking products like Wi-Fi routers. According to IDC Worldwide Quarterly WLAN Tracker, TP-Link is the world’s top provider of WLAN products in Sep 2016 by units shipped. It is a highly competitive market with brands such as D-Link, ASUS, Linksys, Netgear vying for market share.
The theme of this TP-Link Surprise Box is “Smart Home”, so the surprise box contains products from their latest Internet of Things (IoT) product line.
And the first item is…
Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb with Colour Changing Hue (LB130)! It’s not even available for official retail sale in Singapore yet, but has a recommended retail price of US$49.99.
What’s the big deal about this light bulb?
It’s not an ordinary light bulb. It connects to your home Wi-Fi network and enables you to control the functions via smartphone or tablet anywhere around the world. It also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control.
The LB130 Smart Bulb model can change to any colour, modify white balance – from soft white (2500K) to daylight (9000K) – and adjust brightness up to 800 lumens. There is a circadian mode that matches light appearance to the time of day to improve sleep quality. It consumes just 11W power but delivers brightness equivalent of 60W incandescent bulb.
I don’t have a bulb socket. How?
For those who does not have a existing lamp with E27 bulb socket, you can purchase a wall socket bulb holder at home improvement stores. After checking out stores like Home Fix and Selfix, I eventually found one by PowerPac, a local brand, sold at Fairprice Kallang Wave outlet. The PowerPac bulb holder comes with a 5W bulb, so just unscrew the bulb and insert the TP-Link Smart Bulb and it’s ready to work. For those who prefer online shopping, order from Lazada and deliver to your doorstep with free delivery option.
More Surprise in the Box
There is another TP-Link product in the Surprise Box, which I shall not disclose, so that there is a surprise that you can look forward to when you unbox it yourself. My hint is that this product is also from the TP-Link Smart Home product range. If you like the idea of managing your home appliances remotely like the Smart Bulb, this second item will sure to delight you further.
On this GSS Sale, S$29 is all you need to experience the future of Smart Home. The Lazada X TP-Link Surprise Box will be available to purchase on 7 Jun at 8pm. Limited quantities, and in most cases, it will be a sellout within the first minute!!! That’s what happened to my previous Surprise Box! Scary, but thrilling!
