We’ve been listing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals available internationally since 2014, going beyond the US-centric Amazon Black Friday deals for instance. So let’s do it again this year from the usual suspects like Aliexpress and Banggood, as well as direct deals from manufacturers.
The maker board manufacturer offers discounts on eight products until November 29, namely the Arduino Starter Kit, the Arduino UNO board, the Arduino Nano Arduino Micro, Oplà IoT Kit, Arduino Due, Portenta H7 machine vision bundle, and the Arduino Mega. The company also offers discounts on Arduino-branded gears from T-Shirts to pens.
Khadas has an upcoming deal on the Amazon US store that will run for only 24 hours from 25th November 12:00 am to 26th November 11:59 pm (Pacific Standard Time). As I understand it, they ship internationally too, and you’ll be able to get 20% off the Tone2 Pro, Khadas VIM3 single board computer, and other products from the company. Sorry, no Khadas VIM4 at this time!
I always find Black Friday sales overwhelming on generic stores, and that’s the case with Banggood’s Black Friday Crazy Sale since they have way too many activities with some deals on items ranging from smartphones to clothes and more, as well as an “allowance rain” activity to get coupons, a $9.99 snap up flash sales event, and more. As usual,l some of the discounts are probably exaggerated, so make sure to know the real usual price before going for a “60% discount” with photos of people smiling at you. The most relevant section may be the smart tech deals, but again I can see a lot of phones, tablets, electric bikes at this time.
Aliexpress’ Black Friday Fest is also a complete mess, but the “add fave deals to cart” section looks to be the most relevant to the user prefernece, with for example in my case a Sonoff switch, mini PCs, 3D printers, computer accessories, a smartphone and so on. The best may be to search for items you are interested and check for “Black Friday Fest” to see if the product you want is elligible to a discount.
GeekBuying’s Black Friday early access event is easier to navigate with an early draw for coupons, some flash deals, and discounts for various categories ranging from Smart Home to TV Box and Computers & Phones. There’s also the “GKB21BFBIG” coupon offering $20 on specific items.
We’ve reviewed several Reolink cameras in the past couple of years, and the company is now offering some Black Friday specials until November 29 or December 2 depending on the model and stock availability.
MINISFORUM is offering discounts on some of their AMD and Intel mini PCs as part of the company’s Black Friday Super Sale. Note that the company got some pretty bad reviews for some of their recent mini PCs, so you may want to check independent reviews of the model you are interested in.
I’ll keep adding more international Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2021 deals directly to this post or the comments section as they come.
