Looking for the first Black Friday nuggets on Amazon? We have prepared a nice little list for you below. Other merchants are also highlighted.
Every year, Black Friday on Amazon, Cdiscount, Darty or Fnac unleashes passions. Millions of French people take advantage of good deals to save money on their purchases (often for Christmas).

Singles Day is an alternative to Black Friday which is extremely popular in Asia. Since then, the world leader in e-commerce Alibaba has been pushing very hard for its operation to develop very strongly across Europe and in the United States. It is an event which was imagined by him and which is of unprecedented size. In 2020, it was around 7 times bigger than Black Friday alone.
In France, AliExpress is leading this project with very strong ambitions. On November 11 at 9:00 am, thousands of discounts will be posted on the site. The big brands of the world will be present: Apple, Samsung, LG, OnePlus or Xiaomi in high-tech. All product categories will benefit from unprecedented discounts.
Black Friday is still very much in vogue
These Single Day offers are mixed with the first Black Friday offers, in preview. Indeed, merchants like Amazon and others have decided to start their operation well in advance of November 26th. Rather than focusing on a single day, you might as well do an entire month with one-off discounts. It is all the more useful as the French make their gifts for Christmas over a long period.
Black Friday on Amazon has become an institution. These are the most beautiful brands that take advantage of extreme discounts with ease. For customers, there is no other reward other than being quick. This year, stocks will be low as a result of the health crisis. The global semiconductor shortage affects all hardware manufacturers, including Apple. There may not be enough iPhone 13s or iPads to meet all the demand this Christmas.
If you want to do Black Friday on Amazon or Single Day on AliExpress, you have to organize yourself as well as possible. If you have a little time, we invite you to take a look at the merchant sites. Luckily, the site is already showing the discounts that will be put online on November 11, 2021. You might as well take the opportunity to fill the basket and confirm your purchase at this time. Usually, on Single Day, everything disappears within the first hour.
On the Amazon site, Black Friday highlights two types of discounts: flash sales and red thread. On the platform, you can find these offers directly in the menu. Flash sales concern the biggest brands. At the moment, there are a few popular names like Sony. The closer we get to Black Friday, the more generous the number of offers will be. With the risk of rupture always present.
Do not believe that the only offers available are on marketplaces. Indeed, there are also great discounts on dedicated brand sites. In telecoms, it is the operator RED by SFR which breaks the price of the new iPhone 13 (with still a lot of stock). On the Samsung site, the latest Galaxy S21 or Galaxy Tab S7 are taking a huge slap in the face for the new Samsung Week.

The Single Day, first meeting
If you watch TV in France a bit, you have certainly seen that AliExpress has been pushing its ads very hard for over a year. For this Single Day, he intends to seduce millions of French people with strong offers. Earlier in our list, we’ve posted some of the more aggressive offers that will be available starting at 9:00 am sharp on November 11th.
Clearly, Black Friday on Amazon won’t be so generous on discounts. On some products, AliExpress is unbeatable on price. On the other hand, Amazon is better on the size of its catalog. You will have many more American products (Microsoft,…) than for the moment on AliExpress. For all Asian brands, AliExpress has the best prices: it has privileged links with brands due to its immense size in Asia. It’s logic.
To discover the Single Day page, it’s here:
On the different product sheets, you can already see the prices for the Single Day. As a bonus, you also have codes that allow you to receive between 10 and 20% more on the discounted price. For example, the special and unique code 11AE60 gives you 60 euros of reduction from 399 euros of purchase. If you buy, for example, the latest Roborock S7 robot vacuum cleaner, you can therefore have an additional 60 euros reduction.
Amazon offers transparency
For Black Friday, Amazon doesn’t use codes so much. Discounts are displayed transparently on the site. You therefore know the final price of each of the references without having to add up all the advantages. AliExpress also provides a system with coupons that is specific to its merchant platform that allow you to add to other advantages.
For any purchase made online before or during Black Friday, Amazon offers 30 days to change your mind. So you can return the product if it is not right for you and get a full refund. AliExpress offers 20 days to think about it. As for the French like Fnac, Darty or Cdiscount, you have 14 days to retract and obtain a refund. The products must be returned as new, of course.
