While Black Friday is very much a US tradition, Chinese online retailers have made an habit to launch Black Friday, and to a lesser extend Cyber Monday, promotions discount on their sites bringing the event to an international audience. This year is no different, and have gathered some promotions that may be of interest to CNX Software readers.
I have not found specific deals on DealExtreme, but the company launched a Black Friday 2015 Lucky Draw event where you can get partial or full refunds of existing orders, as well as coupons for future order. Here are the rules:
- This campaign is for all DX customers.

GearBest has also a pre Black Friday lucky draw with some coupons for grab. Rules:

If you are not in luck, you could also use Thanksgiving2015 coupon to get 10% discount on the site. This coupon is valid until December 12th.
GeekBuying has their own Black Friday 2015 event with coupons for both existing customers and new ones.
They also have special deals for TV Boxes for example:
- Zidoo X1 TV Box (Allwinner H3) for $39.99
- MK808B Plus stick (Amlogic S805) for $27.99.
- Tronsmart Pavo M9 Android HDMI recorder and player (Mstar) for $50.
- Tronsmart Ara X5 (Cherry Trail mini PC) for $119.99.
Tinydeal launched discounts for Black Friday and Cyber Monday mostly for smartphones, tablets, and accessories. There are also some flash sales, where for example you could get a LEAGOO ELITE 4 smartphone for just $9.99.
Chinavasion plans to run their promotion between Black Friday (Nov 27.) to Cyber Monday (Nov 30.), and they’ve already shown three product to be discounted in a blog post:
- Q6 Dual SIM Android Smartphone for $49.50.
- Some Amlogic S805 TV box for $46.70.
- An Allwinner A33 tablet for $29.63.
Bangood launched what they called Snap Up, where you add a product to your cart, and wait for the exact time to buy at incredibly low price, e.g. $0.01. Frustration guaranteed…
BuyForSure & Aliexpress
BuySureSure is a small company that makes and sells TV boxes via Aliexpress, and I reviewed their BFS 4KH box last year.
They are giving $5 coupon to people who purchase one of the following devices between Nov 24 – 28:
You can find more discount on the whole Aliexpress website, by checking out their Black Friday Page.
Cloud Media promises up to 82% discount, and buy 1 get 2 free offers for selected products.
But I’m not quite sure how to work, as adding 3 product to the cart still show the price for 3 devices. They do offer some small discount for their VTEN media player ($149), and you can add a WiFi dongle for just $1.9 extra (maybe that’s where the 82% discount is coming from…). Their Open Hour Gecko is still $89, but you can add an air mouse for just $5.
OpenELEC also has a Black Friday campaign for their OpenELEC Box based on WeTek Play, wit hthe price as low as 53.99 Euros if you buy 12 or more units. If you don’t need that many, there’s still a 10% discount bringing the price to about 80 Euros for one.
There are probably other deals, please let us know in comments. There’s also a Black Friday deals thread on Kodi forums, but mostly with link to US and UK stores.
