Lightning Deals

A Lightning Deal is a promotion in which a limited number of discounts are offered on an item for a short period.

All Lightning Deals are available until either the expiry of the promotion period or when all the available promotional discounts are claimed. You can claim a particular deal only once.

Lightning Deals are time-sensitive, so complete your order as soon as possible.

When a Lightning Deal is available, here is what you will see:

  • The item featured in the deal.
  • Any available variations of the item (for example, different size or colour).
  • The Lightning Deal list price and the everyday Amazon SG price for the item on
  • The promotional discount amount and final deal price (including GST). Any applicable delivery fees will be displayed at checkout.
  • A status bar showing the percentage of deals already claimed and in customers' carts or purchased.
  • A timer showing how long you have to add the item to your Cart and claim the promotional discount.
  • An Add to Cart button, if there are available promotional discounts.

Note: When other customers hold all the promotional discounts for a Lightning Deal, you will see a Join waitlist button and the status bar shows that 100 per cent of the promotional discounts are held in other customers’ carts or have been used to purchase the deal.

  • Lightning Deal promotional discounts are not transferable to other accounts.
  • For some very popular Lightning Deals, you may see a "Checking deal status" message after you click the "Add to Cart" button. For all Lightning Deals, we will verify eligibility on a first-come first-served basis before applying the Lightning Deal promotional discount to an account. Please do not reload or refresh the page in your browser while this status appears.
  • We cannot honour a Lightning Deals promotional discount if you have not completed your order for the item within 15 minutes of claiming it. Limited quantities of all Lightning Deals are available and adding an item to your cart reserves that item for you for only up to 15 minutes.
  • After all the Lightning Deal promotional discounts have been claimed, the Lightning Deal is marked "All Discounts Claimed" or "Sold Out". You will usually have the option to go to the item's product page and purchase it at the everyday Amazon SG price, but the purchase will no longer be eligible for the Lightning Deal promotional discount.
  • When all the promotional discounts for a Lightning Deal are held by other customers, you will see a Join Waitlist button.
