Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving in the US, and starts the Christmas shopping season with very deep discount. The next Monday is called Cyber Monday is supposed to be the day for Online deals. This is mainly a US “tradition”, but Chinese retailers have joined in to try to boost their end-f year sales, and the good thing is that their discount are available to (almost?) anyone around the world.
DealExtreme has not started deals yet, but a lottery is taking place between the 21st of November and the 1st of December. People who have purchased from them can spin the wheel using their order number in order to win prizes ranging from $3 coupons to iPhone 5s phones. “Black Friday Shopping Carnival” with discounts up to 50% for consumers electronics, tablets, smartphones, etc.. will begin on Friday 29th.
Pandawill will have Thanksgiving deals for twelve items on black Friday for smartphones, tablets, and MK809 III mini PC for $55.99.
GeekBuying Black Friday Deals will include a basically free ($0.01) Cube U39GT tablet, iMito QX2 mini PC for $39.99, and lots of various discounts. Quantities are obviously limited for this type of deals. You can also share their deals page via social networks to get a chance to win up to $1,000, smartphones, tablets, or some mystery gifts.
Aliexpress have their “Epic Holiday Gift Sale” with some games to get coupons, massive deals for Android smartphones and tablets (starts at $10), some “try Tech for Free” lottery (with low odds), as well a discount for Electronics products with for example 4GB micro SD card for $0.12.
As usual getting the product(s) you want will be difficult, as the best deals will be popular and quantities limited, since they probably sell at loss.
