Looking to lower your overall costs in Hong Kong?
How frustrating is it that there’s no Amazon in Hong Kong? The giant of online shopping might not have made it to our metropolis, but we do have the wonder that is HKTVmall.
This online shopping mall has everything you never knew you needed, along with those few bits you forgot to pick up when you were out. Organized just like a huge mall or department store, you can do your grocery shopping, grab that new skillet you keep forgetting you want, and pick up the present for this week’s baby shower.
With HKTVmall, you get:
- A huge range of products
- Some of the best prices in Hong Kong
- Everything delivered direct to your door
Which is just like Amazon, but it’s local to Hong Kong so there’s no hassle with deliveries, taxes, or shipping costs.
Checking out the website, it’s not the most user friendly or pretty looking thing. But, you can’t have missed the HKTVmall vans eternally dashing in and out of your apartment building. There has to be a reason for it, and that reason is all the great deals you’ll find on there.
How do they get the prices so low? The goods are high-quality, so where’s the rub?
It’s the standard online shopping trope – the stores that sell on there have lower overheads. They don’t have to rent out a storefront and we all know how expensive Hong Kong rent is!
Still not convinced? Here are five reasons why you need to start using HKTVmall, today.
We want to look stunning without the huge price tags that come along with the big brands. Have you checked out HKTVmall’s massive range of makeup brands being sold at huge discounts compared to in-store?

- Bobbi Brown
- Fenty Beauty
- Tom Ford?
All of these brands are sold at much cheaper prices than you’ll find in-store.

Say it with bubbles.
Who doesn’t love a bottle of bubbly to toast a special occasion or even just to get a night started in style? It doesn’t have to be a high-end option, preserved for only the most special of events.
HKTVmall has Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve NV 750ml on sale for $398, compared to $598 in regular stores. Add in the benefit of home delivery, and it’s an absolute bargain to bring the luxury feel to your night.
4. Frozen fish
Salmon is one of the pricier fishes, all over the world. Supply can’t keep up with our insatiable demand, and even for an expensive city like Hong Kong, salmon is priced for treats rather than regular consumption.
Head over to the Supermarket tab on the website, select the Fresh/Chilled Fish and Frozen Fish options, and be ready to drown in great value salmon. They’ve got it frozen, smoked, sliced, and fillets – all the salmon you’ll ever need at unbeatable prices.
Check out the massive value you’ll find at HKTVmall, even with slightly different branding you can see where the savvy Hong Kong shopper would go:
|Norsk Sjømat AS – Norwegian Salmon Portion, 480g||as low as $87||$110|
|Boatat – Norway Smoked Salmon, around 500g||$102.80||$185|
5. Online supermarket
Don’t fancy going to the shops for your grocery essentials this week? You don’t ever have to go to the supermarket again with HKTVmall’s online supermarket, selling everything you need at reduced prices.
You can put in what you’re looking for in the search bar at the top, browse categories in the same way you’d cruise down the aisles in the shop, and do some virtual bargain hunting on the supermarket home page with their big price drops and multibuys on show.
- Fresh fruit and veggies
- Canned goods
- Cooking oil
- Toiletries like toothpaste
- Cleaning supplies
And anything else you’d normally pop in your cart when you do your big shop. Not only are you going to save yourself a bunch of time, but you’re also going to see a big difference in your average weekly shopping bill.
At Savvy in Hong Kong, we did a test for you and loaded up our regular shop, including things like pasta, cooking oil, fruit juice, yogurt, some veggies, bathroom cleaner, and some toothpaste and mouthwash. What would normally come to around $1,200 totaled just $920 on HKTVmall.
Watch those types of savings tot up every week, along with the cash you’ll save on your makeup, champagne, salmon, and beauty and hotel deals, you’ll be living your best life with dollars to spare.
