Black Friday Week: which brands are participating?
This is the biggest commercial operation of the year, but also the one that finally offers real bargain prices. Because yes, if sometimes the sales or the French Day can disappoint, Black Friday has a habit of hitting prices much harder: there is therefore little chance of ending up disappointed.
Unsurprisingly, the biggest e-commerce brands should participate and thus offer their biggest promotions of the year. Among them, we should find Amazon, Cdiscount, Rue du Commerce and Boulanger.
Amazon : unsurprisingly, the giant Amazon is celebrating with discounts, coupons and private sales on a large part of its tech and IT catalog. Shopping street : French reference in the field of online sales, you can take advantage of its particularly well-endowed catalog as well as its very competitive prices. Present both during the sales and during Black Friday, Rue du Commerce is a must.Fnac : there too, a lot of choices on computers and hardware, a large choice of TVs and more. What’s more, Fnac offers a click and collect service to go directly to its local store.Darty : Darty and Fnac are now grouped under the same banner, and therefore have the same advantages. We find at Darty a little more household appliances.Cdiscount : of course, Cdiscount is in the game for Black Friday, with hundreds of offers in all its departments.Boulanger
: for Black Friday you can count on Boulanger and its offers on the world of multimedia and tech, a lot of televisions and also some computers and smartphones. Lenovo : the Chinese manufacturer has managed to make its mark in the world of laptops by offering beautiful, high-performance machines! Participating in Black Friday, it’s an appointment not to be missed if you want to change your machine.Micromania-Zing : Micromania is also doing its Black Friday with offers on certain games, and especially goodies from franchises, Funko Pop figurines, etc…
As Black Friday is not an operation subject to French law, brands remain completely free to participate or not. But in fact, few are those who refuse to participate since it is the perfect opportunity to submit a little more competition.
In addition, unlike sales, merchants are not required to limit themselves to a certain date to cut prices: promotions should arrive earlier than you think during Black Friday Week.
During Black Friday Week, beware of scams!
For an event of this magnitude, we can legitimately expect that there will be some excesses or even the presence of scams. Like every year, many people are unfortunately taken in, which is why we want to give you some good recommendations to follow so that this does not happen to you.
First of all, when an offer seems a little too tempting, you absolutely have to be wary of it in the first place! For example, if you come across the latest iPhone 14 Pro Max at half price… ask yourself questions because it is very likely to be a scam. You just risk losing your money and never receiving your order.
In addition, many brands such as Amazon and Fnac-Darty host a marketplace in which there are third-party sellers and, unfortunately, not all of them are reliable. Be sure to check reviews and learn about the seller selling the item before placing an order.
Please note, we are not telling you that you should not place an order with a third-party seller, but simply to keep an eye out. Even Amazon itself, as big as it is, is not immune to this problem, but a simple glance at the comments should already tell you enough about the seriousness of the seller.
Another scam, very common at the moment, is likely to reach you directly on your smartphone: these are text messages telling you that your package is being held at the post office or at customs. Never click on a link included in this type of SMS or email! This is most often “phishing”, a practice well known and controlled by scammers whose sole purpose is to recover your password, or even your bank details. If you have any doubts since you are actually waiting to receive an order, go directly to check the status of your order on the merchant site.
