While waiting for the weekend and Black Friday, Amazon is already offering some offers. Here is our pick for the day. This will be updated over time based on new arrivals and breaks.
As Christmas is approaching, it’s time for presents. In recent years, Black Friday on Amazon, Cdiscount or Fnac has largely contributed to the relief of the French budget for this intense period. Singles Day has become a necessity on AliExpress since 3 years. To facilitate your research, here is a list with current offers.
For Singles Day (November 11), the offers below will be available. You must “add to cart” before that date and verify your order on November 11th at 9:00 AM. Related codes also assure you of a strong discount. Final prices will be posted at 9:00 am.

Black Friday is a famous event on Amazon. Furthermore, if the US platform has largely exported and developed the concept in France, it only represents a small part of this operation. In fact, over 80% of the business achieved in this period is done in physical stores. However, e-commerce brings together the best offers from the hi-tech part.
Since 2009, Singles Day has also become a major event. In Asia, it is much bigger than Black Friday. Globally, this is about 10 times more than Black Friday. The leader is none other than the world leader Alibaba (and its subsidiary AliExpress). To generate $74 billion in sales in one day alone, you have to sell at all prices.
What dates and what offers?
With regard to dates to be remembered, Singles Day is 11th and 12th November, 2021. We will have to watch them as the offers are already promising to be memorable. For Black Friday, Amazon et Cie will hit hard on Friday 26 November. That said, the first offering stamped with the name has been available for a few days already. This allows cyber traders to prepare better and reduce their addiction in a single day.
Every year, Black Friday on Amazon gets more intense. Its discounts go well with all disciplines beyond electronics that benefit from strong discounts. All brands are targeted, ranging from the most premium (like Apple for example) to the less popular. Discounts sometimes go up to -80%, especially on AliExpress, which is incredibly violent.
Everyone will be able to have fun in this month of November. We really have to get ahead of Black Friday at Amazon and others. Why ? Because the global semiconductor shortage is severely impacting inventory. It is possible that the iPhone 13 will go on sale before the holiday season. Processors on all high-tech devices are scarce, so you’ll have to jump on discounts (and stock) quickly.
Amazon has also taken a tough decision for Black Friday. While it offers a 30-day withdrawal period during the year, it increases significantly for the end of the year. In this case, all purchases made since the beginning of November can be refunded by the end of January 2022. This allows Christmas gifts to be returned if they are disappointed, long past the limit.
For other traders, the legal minimum is 14 days: Cdiscount, Fnac or Darty do not do better. AliExpress is trying to ambush itself with a withdrawal period that climbs up to 20 days on most of its references. He hardly attends Black Friday at the end of the month: he focuses exclusively on his Singles Day which starts on 11 and ends on November 12.
Will Single Day topple Black Friday?
Globally, Singles Day is already Black Friday – and by now. Alibaba’s revenue on the biggest day of the year (Prime Day) is 10 times that of Amazon. In France, the giant Amazon is better known than its Asian competitor. That said, AliExpress is going to be a hit, with offers showing up on Singles Day on November 11th.
While the discounts on AliExpress are exceptionally aggressive, there are a few things worth knowing. First, the catalog is quite different from the catalog you have on Amazon on Black Friday. The best offers mainly target products from reputable Asian brands: Samsung, Xiaomi or OnePlus slashed prices during Single Day – something we’d never see on a merchant site like Amazon.
Due to its Asian origin, AliExpress is able to negotiate the best discounts with local manufacturers. In addition, the calculated discount on products sold on AliExpress is basic: it is necessary to add all instant discounts, coupons and possible codes. In general, on all the good schemes that we have listed above, everything is marked on the sheet.
During Black Friday, Amazon revealed thousands of offers on the same day which surprised everyone. AliExpress works differently because offers are already visible. However, these will be available only on November 11 at 9:00 am. That’s why you’ll need to complete your basket in advance so all you need to do is confirm your order, enter a possible code, and confirm your purchase as soon as possible. In general, sometimes everything is done in a matter of minutes.
Amazon is Black Friday’s big favorite
