How to get the best Action Camera Deals

Single’s Day (11.11.), Black Friday (24.11) & Cyber Monday (27.11.)

 

Updates

Black Friday sales started! It’s already Friday in China 😉

My Tipp: Don’t wait for the last second, many deals are limited to certain quantities and active even before Black Friday. If the deal is attractive (like Xiaomi Mijia for 85$) get it instead of waiting for a new lowest price which might be 1-2$ cheaper. If the codes are not active anymore, there won’t be further soon.

Shop Infos

Shopping season is about to start and here’s a guide where and when you can get the best deals for action cameras and accessories. Besides famous Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, you should watch out for Nov. 11th – Single’s Day – which became the biggest shopping day all around the world! Prices on Chinese websites are often even cheaper than on Black Friday. It’s also more secure to get shipping in time for Christmas. These are the dates to watch out for:

  • 11.11.2017 – Single’s Day or Guanggun Jie
  • 24.11.2017 – Black Friday
  • 27.11.2017 – Cyber Monday
  • 20.-27.11.2017 – Amazon Cyberweek

But don’t stick to these dates. Some retailers already started their sales earlier. Since the prices for 11.11. sales on Aliexpress are published so you can already compare the deals. Since every retailer has a different way of publishing deals, here’s an overview:

Amazon offers a lot of Action Cameras and accessories in their “Cyber Week”. These Lightning Deals (in German: Blitzangebote) are only available for a limited time and are announced a day in advance, but not the price. So it’s pretty hard to estimate which products will be on sale and tricky for you to get the product you want. I will list all relevant deals and times for amazon.com & amazon.de – the final price remains unknown until the deal starts!

Aliexpress is a subsidiary of Alibaba group, and the business to customer trade platform. Similar to Amazon Marketplace there are individual retailers on the platform. Some of them are manufacturers themselves, so YI Technology or SJCAM have an official store on Aliexpress. Single’s day, the 11th of November, is a big deal on Aliexpress and prices are often way cheaper than on any other day (incl. Black Friday)! So if there’s a deal on Aliexpress on 11.11. the chances are low the prices will decrease further. The good thing about Aliexpress is, that most deals are already stated in advance, so no last minute price surprises.

Gearbest, Banggood, Geekbuying, TomTop,… are retailers themselves who sell directly. Aside their Chinese Warehouse they also have Warehouses in the US or EU. Shipments from a EU warehouse within the EU are already customs cleared – so no tax & customs payments! Many of these Deals require a coupon code which can be found below. So the prices on those dates might be lower. Compare them on those dates to get the best deal.
