Can you believe that it's already July? We are now entering the second half of 2019 and...there isn't a lot going on except for many 7.7 sales, especially on Shopee's platform. Aside from that, another worthy sale promotion that's going on is Huawei's Online IT Fair which is offering a 2-year warranty and up to RM400 discount on its mobile phones now, Samsung is also teaming up with MBO offering Malaysians a Buy 1 Free 1 promo for movie fans, and the Galaxy Note 10 will officially be UNPACKED on 7 August 2019.
So....yeah I think I'm talking here. Told you there isn't much going on haha. Anyway, the most exciting part is probably looking out for sales on Shopee's 7.7 Orange Madness campaign so do standby if you're planning to buy anything. Anyway, onto this week's NewsBytes.
