As you know, by November, the entire civilized world began to scrunch pieces of paper and frantically to remember details of Bank cards – because the start of a powerful sales, where you can buy some important equipment for a half and then a quarter of the price. The famous “Black Friday”, immortalized in several movies and legendary series “South Park” that attracts buyers like a magnet – but is it all well with this tradition.
Actually, the reason for this text was not the classic “Black Friday” (the end of the month), a Grand sale, which started today, November 11 at 11:00 GMT on the world’s largest online retailer Aliexpress. Half of the products on the site already hung attractive discount, which opened this Friday. We decided to find out whether it’s worth it, and if so – how can further save by spending this important day even less.
It is no secret that a number of sellers ahead of big discounts safely raises the price by one third – and then generously cut this margin, and the result is, at best, the same price. Some savvy retailers on the largest online have done so – in particular, a second-hand iPhone 5s for the “discount” of 15 000 is now the price is hovering around 25 000. Of course, it’s not even a veiled lie. But not all sellers on Ali are.
See. Here is the phone the Xiaomi Redmi 3S the length of the screen in inches. In normal times, it will cost almost 11 000 roubles – the normal price for a good Chinese smartphone. But during the sale it can be bought for 800 rubles 8 – understand the difference. Go ahead. For example, Meizu M3S with 16 GB internal memory now its value is equal 8225 rubles. But when starts the sale, the phone can be bought for 6580 roubles.
For example, you don’t need a phone, and need a controller. Well. On Ali is omnivorous controller GameSir G4S – this thing can be managed as games in the phone (there is a special stand for the device), and console and computer works. Now the controller is 6,500 rubles is expensive. But today you can “grab” for 2369 roubles – and this, for a moment, cheaper than a wired controller from the Xbox 360, the functionality of which is five times lower.
As you can see, save this Friday do you can – the main thing is not hanging ears and carefully look around. Of course, nobody will give the new iPhone 7 for 20,000 – this product does not need additional discounts. But a number of things still possible to buy, paying for them worth much less.
