The French Days will continue this weekend. Cdiscount, Amazon, Boulanger or Fnac show their best offers. It’s the last straight to take advantage of it, have fun while saving a lot.
The French Days begin their fourth day. For this Saturday, the main players in the operation such as Cdiscount, Amazon, Fnac and even Leclerc reveal their best offers. It is therefore the last straight line to do good business as, as a reminder, the French Days of Spring 2022 will end this Monday.
With the diversity and impressive number of offerings from Cdiscount and others, it’s not that easy to find your way around. To make your job easier and help you find the right plan that’s going well, we’ve put together a list of the best deals that are still relevant this Saturday. Keep in mind that the discounts that follow aren’t meant to last – and usually expire in a few hours.
French days: Black Friday made in France
Even though they are heavily inspired by Black Friday, the French Days remain an event limited to the national scale. As the name suggests, this event is mainly aimed at the French public. Six major French brands, including Cdiscount and Fnac, are behind the operation.
The latter launched the first edition of the French Days in the spring of 2018, together with four other French retail players. Over time, the event has become more and more popular. So much so that dozens of other (foreign) merchants gradually joined the movement. Among them are the two e-commerce juggernauts Amazon and AliExpress.
The French Days have been around for 4 years now and have become an unmissable annual event for the French. This year, the French Spring Days will take place from Wednesday 4 to Monday 9 May. At the end of these few days of promotions, the offers will disappear and return to “normal” prices. What makes the French Days a success is, in particular, the premium quality of the offers.
Cdiscount, Boulanger, Darty offer discounts on popular products, including a wide range of offers with accessible references (such as Xiaomi’s electric air pump or the connected scale) – but also more luxurious products (AirPods Pro, MacBook Air, Roborock vacuum cleaners, etc. …). Unlike sales, the French Days are not considered a major destocking. Rather, it is a premium operation, which is precisely the reason for its success.
The best deals of the French Days
For the French Days, Cdiscount is undoubtedly the e-tailer that revealed the most offers. AliExpress and the like are not far away. The Chinese giant distinguishes itself from its French counterparts by offering unbeatable discounts on extremely popular products. At home, the bestsellers are the Mi Pad 5 touchscreen tablet, the Tineco Floor One S3 3-in1 vacuum cleaner, the Roborock Dyad or the Xiaomi electric air pump, without a doubt the bestseller of the summer.
During the French Days, all traders strive to offer the best prices. It’s also not surprising to see similar offers from different brands, with Amazon for example joining Cdiscount, or vice versa, it’s commonplace. We think of the MacBook Air M1 that received a discount of 130 euros to be displayed at both the French trader and the American giant for 999 euros.
With the French Days you can save a lot on all product categories. As a reminder, the French Days take place twice a year – in May in the spring and in September in the fall. The May edition is especially popular with the French as this period is very quiet in terms of promotions. September is not that interesting because everyone prefers to wait for the unmissable Black Friday offers.
Since the beginning of these French Days, stock shortages have been building up both at Cdiscount and its counterparts. This weekend proves to be decisive for people who want to do good business. Also, some traders who have stayed a little further back (such as Boulanger, Carrefour and Leclerc) are at risk of revealing new offerings. We must therefore remain vigilant and do not hesitate to come back and see our list of offers of the French Days, which is regularly updated during the weekend.
Buy safely online at French Days
The French Days require a lot of reactivity as most of the offers come in the form of flash sales. And given the popularity of premium products that target discounts (sometimes as low as -80%), it can sometimes be quite difficult to arrive in time to take advantage of them. Apple products like the AirPods Pro or the MacBook Air M1 are the perfect examples.
Logically, the more interesting the offer, the smaller the chance that it will remain online for a long time. Also, if you rushed to buy a product and it does not suit you once it arrived at your home, you can take advantage of a withdrawal period. It is offered by Cdiscount, AliExpress, Fnac and in general by all other merchants who may or may not participate in the French Days.
Specifically, this legal obligation in France allows you to return for free – within 14 days of receiving the product. Once returned, the full refund will be initiated by the concerned merchant. Note that from this point of view, Amazon is the only one to offer 30 days for this withdrawal period.
French Days, Black Friday, Prime Day, Cdiscount and its counterparts therefore give you the opportunity to place an order online on their site without any risk. Thanks to the return period, you can change your mind if you don’t like what you’ve ordered. We remind you that this weekend is the last straight to take advantage of the offers of the French Days ending on Monday 9 May. Now is the time to take advantage of this.
