Singles Day started as an event in mainland China that offers discounts similar to Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the west. It happens every year on November 11 and has now expanded to overseas markets thanks to popular Chinese online shopping websites.
Just like in prior years, I’ll list some of the offers for SIngles Day 2020 from sites like Aliexpress, Banggood, Geekbuying, and others.
Aliexpress 11.11 Global Shopping Festival has been on since October 28th, but there’s no actual discount just yet. You can simply add an item to your cart, and purchase it at a discounted price on November 11-12 with discounts up to 70% off. There are also coupons for various products. You’ll find all instructions on the shopping guide, or go to coupon codes.
If you’re specifically looking for Arm Linux development boards, Khadas has a $2 coupon and discounts for their SBCs, and if you’d like to buy cheap ESP32/RISC-V boards for even less, check out Lolin or LilyGO stores.
Banggood 11.11 global shopping festival has been up for a few days. There’s a $999 allowance where you click on red envelopes and coins to obtain discounts/coupons usable on November 10-11. The company also offers various product-specific coupons for smartphones, laptops, laser engravers. etc…, as well as daily flash deals for all sorts of devices.

Gearbest1111 event is taking pace being November 4 and 13 with a warmup first, then the actual shopping “carnival” on November 10-12, and the last will be themed as “looking forward to Black Friday”. There’s no sitewide coupon that I could find, but you could spin a wheel to win a Xiaomi 10T smartphone, I can see some 3D printers discounts, etc… You’ll find the full details on Gearbest’s 11.11 SALE shopping guide.
Tomtop Technology Shopping Carnival event lasts a bit longer between November 3 and 17 with various discounts and coupons.
I’ll add more promotions and coupon codes as they come up.
