For me double 11 festival is becoming less exciting these years. There are some key reasons. Firstly, the Complicated promotion mechanism is really tiring. You need to spend a lot of time to decide your shopping list. Sometime you have to buy unuseful goods to enjoy heavier discount. Secondly, promotion campaigns are alway on during the whole year. If you miss double 11, cny, women’ s Day, 618 are also a good timing to clear your shopping chart.
