Deal alert: 4 Qoo10 "Power Thursday" and weekend deals you should not miss


Qoo10 may be known for its many resellers, but it has no shortage of official stores set up by brand owners. A few official stores has just launched on the e-marketplace, so of course, we’ve to find out if there are any deals to be had!

Before we proceed, here's a couple of PSAs:

  • Qoo10 is now doing something called Power Thursday events, which offer additional 8% off items (min. purchase S$50, discount capped at S$50) in the digital and mobile electronics category every Thursday. (T&Cs here.)
  • In addition, there will be S$50 coupons (for min. S$300 purchase) that you can use this weekend (Apr 14 - 15) going up for grabs, so keep a lookout for that too.


1.) 10% Off Vertagear Gaming Chairs

Vertagear is a company that specializes in making gaming chairs, and its chairs are divided into two series: Racing and Gaming. In broad strokes, the Racing series consists of the S Line and P Line models, and are suitable for most people, whether you’re an eSport gamer or not. On the other end, you’ve the Formula One-inspired Gaming collection, which Triigger-branded models touting unique control triggers (hence the name) connected to a pulling mechanism using high-strength steel cables. According to Vertagear, you can adjust the seat height of these Triigger chairs within 0.32 seconds, way faster than normal chairs.

If you’re looking to buy a gaming chair, Vertagear is now on Qoo10 selling its Racing series chairs. And at the moment, it's offering a 10% storewide discount. There’s also a Facebook contest, in which you can post your gaming rig to stand a chance to win a free Vertagear chair. I’m told that the rig with the most number of likes will win a PL6000 chair (worth S$559), while the second and third-placed winners will each get an SL2000 chair (worth S$419).

Go to the Vertagear Official Store on Qoo10 now.


2.) Zhiyun Smooth 4 Smartphone Gimbal

With the Zhiyun Smooth 4, it’s now possible to turn your mobile phone into a professional filmmaking camera. To cut down unnecessary fumbling on the phone screen, the gimbal features a large focus/zoom wheel on one side and an integrated control panel with hot-key buttons; and there’s a PhoneGo mode for instant scene transition. The battery runs for 12 hours and you can even use the gimbal to charge the mounted phone over USB-C. Recharging is also via USB-C, and you can use a power bank to top up the the stabilizer’s charge while on the go.

So here’s the deal: The Smooth 4 is now available for order for S$208. However, the shop is also giving a S$20 coupon that requires a S$250 minimum spending. So our recommendation is to add a couple of accessories to hit the S$250 requirement and use the coupon. Better yet, stack it with the 8% Power Thursday coupon (issued every Thursday for electronic items purchases) to bring the final price down even further.
