As every year, November is the month of deals. With Single’s Day 2019 behind us, it’s time to look ahead for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There will be plenty of deals in the US, but in this post, I’ll focus on international Black Friday 2019 deals available mostly from Chinese online shops like I did in previous years.
Aliexpress Black Friday will start in about 10 days on Nov 29, 2019 ,12:00 AM PT and last until Dec 3, 2019 ,11:59 PM PT. But the site will start to show discounted prices on November 22, and you’ll be able to collect coins and coupons from that date, as well as add items to your cart before making the order during the 6-day promotion.
Banggood Black Friday promotions have already started and will last until November 30 16:00 UTC+8. The easiest and most flexible way to get a discount is to use their $6 coupon for orders over $60. You just need to login to your account on their website to receive one. If you’ve never used Banggood, they are giving an $18 coupon for new customers, and other promotions such as “storm sales” and live stream group buying will be taking place.
GearBest Black Friday activity appears to have begun, and you can already collect coupons for some popular products. For example, you could get a Xiaomi Mi Box for $49.99 when using coupon GBCNMIBOXHB. They also offer discounts without coupons but ignore the bogus RRP (Recommended Retail Price) listed on the website.
GeekBuying also launched its own event, but I can see few details. I understand they are organizing daily flash sales with limited stock (20 to 30 pieces) for each promoted product. For example, Xiaomi Mi 4 smart bracelet is sold at a slightly discount price of $24.99 shipped. The deals change every day, so you’d have to come back daily if you want to find out about the deals.
[Update: They have published some coupons:
- $60 off for orders over $600 – GKB19BF60
- $20 off for orders over $150 – GKB19BF20
- $15 off for orders over $60 – GKB19BF15
- $5 off for orders over $30 – GKB19BF05
- $3 off for orders over $15 – GKB19BF03
- $1 off for orders over $2 – GKB19BF01 ]
DealExtreme event is up, and they are offering free gifts of increasing value for each order over $30, $70, and $120. If you order over $200, you’ll get a $12 discount automatically apply, and enter a draw to win an extra $4 coupon that can be used for your next order. Note the $12 discount does not work on phones, computers, and some Xiaomi products.
Seeed Studio offers a 30% discount on over 250 products with coupon THANKS30 as part of their Thanks Giving promotion.
That’s all for today, but as Black Friday approaches I’ll receive more offers in my mailbox, and keep posting those in the comments section below.
