Before Black Friday the Singles day is an event that is growing in popularity worldwide. This operation, initiated by giant Alibaba (and its subsidiary AliExpress), has gained momentum in France in recent years.
It will take place on November 11th (November 11th) and will enable great savings. With AliExpress, before the process begins, you must fill your shopping cart with products that are already displayed in the promotion in order to validate your purchases on the same day at 9:00 a.m. exactly. The supply is very limited, so you can’t be late. In the meantime, here are the deals available in advance at all Black Friday retailers.

To respond to Black Friday Amazon, Alibaba has envisioned its Singles Day. This “Singles Day” takes place on November 11th with reference to the date (which only consists of the number “1”). Today the numbers are much higher than on Black Friday, which is equivalent to 6 billion in sales in France.
Singles Day is a gigantic operation. Last year, Alibaba generated no less than $ 1 billion in transactions in 1 minute and 25 seconds. The madness is insane. Thanks to new and very strong promotions, tens of billions of dollars in sales are generated within 24 hours. If you want to buy cheaper brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus or Huawei, it’s even better than Black Friday.
Singles Day is becoming more important
In France, Singles Day is in its third edition. For the past few years, AliExpress has been fully involved in this. The dealer, who offers a very complete marketplace (also with partners like Fnac), enables good business. As number 1 in the world in e-commerce (and number 5 in France), he is expected for this Black Friday alternative.
When Black Friday has instant deals on Amazon and others, Singles Day is a little original. In fact, the offers are displayed before they are available.. They will only be available in France from 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday. However, you can already place yourself by adding the products to your shopping cart.
All you have to do is validate and pay for your order on each day. In the past two years, AliExpress has been taken by storm with deals only showing up for more than a few minutes after 9:00 a.m. It is therefore necessary to be effective on Singles Day on the same principle as on Black Friday at Amazon, Cdiscount or even Fnac.
While you wait for Singles Days, you can always take advantage of the few pre-Black Friday offers that are available everywhere. We’re seeing deals on AirPods, iPhone 12 (also pre-ordered), or even iRobot Roomba Aspi robots this Sunday. All websites that offer services, such as VPN operators or publishers, participate in this dynamic.

Black Friday has competition
If Amazon closes its Black Friday operation before the hour, it will continue flash sales. They’re less generous and rarer than when the operation started, but he wanted to allow the French to save money on Christmas shopping. There are even bigger discounts at AliExpress for Singles Day.
For example, the new OnePlus Nord costs only 296 euros instead of 399 euros. While Amazon has some deals on this phone (released in August) for 349 euros, Singles Day has never been as low as AliExpress. In order to receive this rate, you will need to collect several coupons available on the platform – including code 12AEFR1111 listed above. The platform works with these codes, you need to take them into account.
Be careful, just because you enter a code doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to have the product. You still have to pay for it on November 11th, Singles Day, to make sure you get the product at this reduced price. It works a little differently than Black Friday on Amazon, but the discounts are even more generous. If you spend a little time, you can see real savings.
A “satisfied or refunded” guarantee
Whether for Black Friday or Singles Day, all retailers operating in France are obliged to offer their customers a cooling off period. At Amazon, we’re very generous because customers can return their purchases until January 31, 2021. At AliExpress, customers have up to 14 days after the delivery date to return their product and receive a full refund.
As you can see in the selection of the above offers, at AliExpress we have only selected products that are delivered from Europe (with VAT: France or Spain). So you won’t have any nasty surprises, the prices can be compared to all other French retailers. As a reminder: Singles Day is the highlight of the world’s number 1 in e-commerce. The prices will therefore be just as good as they were on Black Friday.
If Apple is not one of the products available for Singles Day, you will need to resort to Amazon Black Friday deals to take advantage of them. However, there are still some “local” brands on AliExpress. For example, you can use Fnac gift cards for promotions on the AliExpress marketplace. You have the famous “JackPot” cards which you can use to buy a € 50 card worth € 60. The € 150 card is also only available for € 130.
Be careful, whether for Black Friday or Singles Days, the offers are always very limited. It is therefore better to respond as soon as possible. For Amazon it must now be exploited. For this Singles Day you have to get ready tonight and validate your basket on November 11th at 9am sharp.
