Barely entered into the month of Black Friday, Amazon and its counterparts are attacking hard with generous discounts. The point this Sunday.
Black Friday is gaining visibility every year. Amazon is one of the major e-merchants which largely contributes to this success. That said, more local players like Cdiscount, Fnac or Boulanger are also very active. AliExpress is also entering the battle with reduced prices at the start of the month. Here is the list of the good plans of the day.
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.

On Amazon, Black Friday is one of the biggest events of the year. If he is now overtaken by Prime Day, November remains one of the strongest for him. Indeed, if the event officially takes place on the last Friday of the month (hence the name Friday), the offers start much earlier. For this long weekend, there are already some urgent business to seize.
Black Friday taken by Amazon
Black Friday is a concept from the United States. It is inevitably Amazon, leader in e-commerce in France, which has helped develop this activity in France. However, it has largely been taken up by physical stores which today represent an overwhelming majority of sales. E-commerce is rather reserved for those who want to buy high-tech products.
As you may have already seen from our list above, Black Friday brings a lot of tech deals to the fore. However, it is far from being the only product category available for this operation. It is simply that we have expertise on the subject and that we therefore focus on this theme. However, you can discover products for beauty, sport, DIY or decoration directly on these merchant sites.
Over time, Black Friday on Amazon, Cdiscount and Fnac has gained momentum. It is even obvious since at the same time, the popularity of sales is in free fall. The latter, which take place in January and June, are considered to be destocking operations on products that have difficulty in selling (hence the concept of selling at a loss).
For Black Friday, the difference is that you can find the best brands – and their latest references – at reduced prices. Apple, Dyson, Sony or Samsung, they are all active for this operation. So you can enjoy the latest iPhone 13s, Microsoft Surface tablets or Dyson vacuum cleaners at super low prices.
The icing on the cake, Black Friday takes place at a strategic time of the year: it takes place just before the holiday season. This allows you to make Christmas gifts much cheaper. Unlike operations like sales where it becomes difficult to find good deals, Black Friday is really a simple, efficient and generous meeting.
To discover Black Friday at Amazon, it’s here:
An operation that starts now
To optimize its stock, Amazon started Black Friday much earlier this year. For this edition, it must organize itself differently due to a worldwide shortage of processors. The whole high-tech industry is affected, which does not allow enough production. Apple, Samsung or Xiaomi have been hit hard by these production concerns and this is reflected in stocks at Amazon.
This implies that customers will have to hurry to do their Christmas shopping at the risk of running out of stock. And here we are talking about products that are not necessarily at a reduced price. It is for this reason that Black Friday on Amazon is kicking off much earlier this year. The merchant will thus be able to adapt his stocks to best meet upstream demand.
However, the customer is never under pressure at home. Indeed, to facilitate purchases during Black Friday, Amazon voluntarily extends the return period. While this is 30 days by default (which is double what all the competitors do), he has now set a fixed date for the end of the year. You will have until January 31, 2022 to return your purchases. It is convenient for those who are unsure of their Christmas presents. No more resale on eBay!
The Single Day invites itself into the dance
In our selection above of offers for Black Friday, we have dedicated a slot for Single Day. The latter is a kind of Black Friday at Alibaba and AliExpress. It is the most important day of the year and it is the most important turnover in the world for such a day. To give you an order of magnitude, it is 7x bigger than Prime Day, which is the biggest event at Amazon.
For Single Day, the operation differs from that of Black Friday on Amazon. In this case, all the offers are already known and displayed very explicitly on the merchant site. However, they will only be available on November 11 from 9:00 am sharp. AliExpress recommends that you already put the products in your shopping cart to avoid out of stock. Often, it occurs in the first hour after the start of the operation.
During Single Day, the quality of the offers is much better than that of Black Friday. However, it is not the same selection that is available. AliExpress mainly focuses on premium Asian brands (Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Roborock) while Amazon relies heavily on American brands. We advise you to play on both operations at the same time because they do not take place at the same time. As well enjoy.
