If you areIt's a little familiar with Black Friday, Amazon, and all e-merchants, you know how critical November is. This "private" event has gone beyond traditional operations such as sales or French Days. Retailers, whether physical or online, are always attaching more importance to this operation, which takes place during a busy period.
Indeed, a few weeks before Christmas, Black Friday on Amazon, Fnac and Cdiscount allows you to save on gifts. Whether on technology, beauty, decoration or DIY, all references and all categories are targeted. The list above only includes a few examples of products on sale, but there are tens of thousands.
Black Friday sublimated by Amazon and others
Black Friday n was not invented by Amazon, but both have the same origin. The business operation originated in the United States, a few years after the end of World War II. Dsince then, it has grown thanks to relaying on the internet. In France, it was Amazon that imported the concept. Today, a large majority of retail players participate.
This year more than ever, the French are hoping to save money on their Christmas shopping. While waiting for Black Friday, Amazon, Fnac, Darty and others have already relayed some great promotions. This allows for more rational purchases throughout the month, without having to hurry on the famous “Black Friday” (November 27).
This weekend, for example, we saw very popular products to be on promotion. AirPods Pro, Surface Pro 7, Redmi Note 9 Pro, all very popular products that have seen their prices drop by more than 30%. ATWith these discounts, there is no longer even need to wait for Black Friday: Amazon, Fnac, Cdiscount or Darty are already very competitive on the offers.
While the holding of Black Friday is still more compromised, so it's time to grab those deals. Indeed, if Fnac, Cdiscount or Amazon decide not to do Black Friday, it would be better to secure your purchases before the time. There are discounts sometimes up to -80% on certain references. Even a pack with the Surface Pro 7 has fallen by 42% at Fnac, it's never seen.

Black Friday, a strong event
That this either Black Friday or not, Amazon breaks down its offers into two formats. On the one hand, we have flash sales that only last a few hours. They are doubly limited: 1) by time and 2) by stock. A double counter is displayed and allows you to follow the progress of the deal.Quite often they go away within minutes because the discounts are so high.
On the other hand, we have continuous sales. Since the beginning of the month and even before Black Friday, Amazon has been running these promotions. For example, we see offers on the latest OnePlus or Xiaomi smartphones. We also see offers on Chromebooks, iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners or Philips accessories. There are thousands of them, you have to be patient.
As with a real Black Friday, Amazon, Cdiscount or Fnac unveil new offers every day. If officially, there is not yet Black Friday, it is still a strong period for all these merchants. The French are actively thinking about gifts for the end of the year,they take the opportunity to place their order without risking stock shortage.
This year is a bit special, and e-merchants are under pressure. Indeed, in addition to the issue of holding Black Friday, Amazon and others are worried about stocks and logistics. During the first lockdown, merchants ran out of a majority of products. They did not succeed in compensating for the expectations of the French, who moved their purchases online.
Securing your gifts before Christmas
While some merchants are already recording disruptions on certain themes (toys, electronics ...), you have to know how to do it in advance. While waiting for Black Friday, Amazon also offers a real advantage over its competitors. It allows customers to return their purchases until January 31, 2021. This allows gifts to be offered at Christmas, even if it means returning them later. There will therefore be no need to go through the resale box.
Normally, Amazon offers a 30-day trial period for its customers (after delivery). For this Black Friday, he is extending the period to allow anyone to be able to shop as of Monday, without having to worry about returns. Its French counterparts like Fnac, Cdiscount or Darty are always limited to the legal minimum, namely 14 days of returns.
For the end of the year, Black Friday on Amazon seems compromised. The merchant knows it, and that's why he hosts generous flash sales every day. But the real good surprises come from Fnac and Cdiscount. The two merchants have been showing their best faces for a few days. The discounts are worthy of Black Friday, without being there.
Be careful, the stocks are limited. If you don't want to miss out on a promotion while you wait for Black Friday, it's best to secure your purchases. In the worst case, you can still return it and order the same product, cheaper. This allows you to avoid ending up with nothing after the end of November.
