While waiting for the weekend and Black Friday, Amazon is already making some offers. Here is our selection for this day. It will be updated over time based on new arrivals and breaks.
As Christmas draws closer, it’s time to prepare the presents. In recent years, Black Friday on Amazon, Cdiscount or Fnac has largely contributed to relieving the budget of the French for this prosperous period. For 3 years, Single Day on AliExpress has become essential. To facilitate your research, here is a list with current offers.
For Singles Day (November 11), below are the offers that will be available. You must “add to cart” before that date and validate your order on November 11 at 9:00 am sharp. The associated codes assure you a strong discount in addition. The final prices will be posted at 9:00 a.m.

Black Friday on Amazon is a well-known event. Moreover, if the American platform has largely exported and developed the concept in France, it only represents a small part of this operation. Indeed, more than 80% of the turnover made over this period is done in physical stores. However, e-commerce brings together the best offers from the high-tech part.
Since 2009, the Single Day has also become a major event. In Asia, it is much bigger than Black Friday. Globally, it is around 10 times greater than Black Friday. The leader is none other than the world leader Alibaba (and its subsidiary AliExpress). To make 74 billion in turnover alone on a single day, all prices must be sold off violently.
What dates and what offers are available?
Regarding the dates to remember, the Single Day takes place on November 11 and 12, 2021. We will have to watch them because the offers are already promising to be memorable. For Black Friday, Amazon et Cie will hit hard on Friday November 26. That said, the first offers stamped with the name of the operation have already been available for a few days. This allows cyber merchants to better prepare and reduce their addiction to a single day.
Each year, Black Friday on Amazon becomes more intense. Its discounts go well beyond electronics with all the themes that benefit from strong discounts. All brands are targeted, from the most premium (like Apple for example) to the less popular. The discounts go up to -80% on some sites – especially on AliExpress, which is showing incredible violence.
Everyone will be able to have fun in this month of November. We will really have to get ahead of Black Friday at Amazon and others. Why ? Because the global semiconductor shortage is seriously hurting inventory. It is possible that the iPhone 13 will be sold out before the holiday season. The processors of all tech devices are scarce, so you have to quickly jump on discounts (and stocks).
For Black Friday, Amazon has also made a strong decision. While it offers a 30-day withdrawal period during the year, it increases very significantly for the end of the year. In this case, all purchases made since the beginning of November can be returned until the end of January 2022. This allows Christmas gifts to be returned if they have disappointed, well past the limit.
For other merchants, 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 the majority of its references. He will hardly participate in this Black Friday at the end of the month: he focuses especially on his Single Day which starts on 11 and ends on 12 November.
Will Single Day dethrone Black Friday?
Globally, Single Day has already passed Black Friday – and by far. Alibaba’s revenue is 10 times that of Amazon on its biggest day of the year (Prime Day). In France, the giant Amazon is however better known than its Asian rival. That said, with the offers it will show on Single Day on November 11, AliExpress is going to be a hit.
While the discounts are exceptionally aggressive on AliExpress, there are a few things to know. First of all, the catalog is quite different from the one you can have on Amazon on Black Friday. The best offers are mainly aimed at high-end Asian brand products: Samsung, Xiaomi or OnePlus have slashed prices during Single Day – which we will 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 discount calculated on products sold on AliExpress is original: you must add all the immediate discounts, coupons and codes. In general, on all the good plans that we listed above, everything is marked on the sheet.
During Black Friday, Amazon unveils thousands of offers on the same day that take everyone by surprise. AliExpress works differently since the offers are already visible. However, they will only be available on November 11 at 9:00 am sharp. You have to complete your basket in advance so you only have to validate your order, enter any code and confirm your purchase as soon as possible. In general, sometimes everything goes in a few seconds.
Amazon is the big favorite of Black Friday
Every day during the month of November we will be updating this page with the best deals for Black Friday (and also Single Day). For those who do not have time to take a tour every day on the different sites, take the opportunity to bookmark this page. It will give you access to the latest (best) current offers through the most important sites.
For Black Friday, Amazon will be one of the big headliners. If you had to look at only one e-commerce site in France, it would be him. If your time is limited, you might as well focus on it to see the offers available at the moment. AliExpress and Cdiscount complete the top three. These are players who have great ambitions for the end of the year and who will post the best deals.
