Amazon Black Friday
When:
Where:Online shop
Summary:Up to 50% off thousands of items on Black Friday.

Mostly it concerns on the one hand several products from Amazon itself. So Kindle Fire, Echo or discounts on Prime. On the other hand, there are highlight products such as the PlayStation 4 Pro, the XBox One, Nintendo Switch, 4K TVs, Surface Pro and so on.

In addition, a large number of niche products are sold, some with huge discounts. You can only find out what these are on the dealer's website. The large number of products could not be sensibly advertised on social media or elsewhere.

It should be noted (as of May 2021) that the world's largest online marketplace only delivers around 70% of all articles to Switzerland. It is quite possible that all deals will also be delivered directly to Switzerland by Black Friday. Recently, you can also see in the order overview whether the order incurs customs costs and, if so, how high these are. In addition, there is also the German VAT. deducted from the sales price.

Tips for Amazon Black Friday

  • Prime members get access to lightning deals 30 minutes before anyone else. Clever bargain hunters order a free 30-day trial membership to Prime for Cyber ​​Week.
  • Price pirate has summarized all information about Amazon orders to Switzerland.
  • The internet giant states the discounts based on the RRP (non-binding sales price). This is usually well above the current market price. So high discount percentages don't necessarily mean you're getting a great bargain. Compare prices in advance on a price comparison portal.
  • Find out about the bargains of the day every morning on our homepage or directly from the mail order company. Then make an appointment in the calendar so that you don't miss the start of the offer. Many offers are sold out within a few minutes. So it pays to be on time.

General information about Amazon Switzerland

Amazon has no branch in Switzerland. This means that you buy from the German branch. Therefore, some special features must be observed:

  • The customs costs are now displayed directly in the order overview.
  • Deliveries usually take longer than 48 hours
  • Not all products are delivered to Switzerland

It is likely that the last two points will change by Black Friday 2021. The internet giant signed a contract with Swiss Post at the end of March 2021 and is now paying customs duties digitally. As of April 2021, a first test phase is running.

Amazon has this ready on Singles Day 2021

Singles Day takes place shortly before Black Friday. This is always on November 11th and attracts even more customers worldwide, as it is celebrated in Asia. Black Friday is the bigger event in Europe and America, but Singles Day is slowly establishing itself. More and more retailers in this country are offering deals on this occasion.

So far, Amazon hasn't participated in Singles Day as far as we know. Perhaps that will change this year, because numerous retailers from Manor to Orell Füssli have already offered discounts on the event. This means that Amazon has a disadvantage compared to the competition here. With a deal for Singles Day 2021, the retailer could catch up with the competition on this day or even become more attractive.

An event specially from Amazon: Prime Day

To celebrate Black Friday in summer too, Amazon has developed its own event. Prime Day always takes place in early or mid-July, and during this time you can take advantage of great discounts on many products for a few days. However, you have to be a member of Amazon Prime to benefit from the deals.

Some highlights among the offers were, for example, two free audio books and a voucher for 10 euros if you took out a trial subscription for the audiobook service Audible. The trial subscription is free, and that's how you got the audio books and voucher just like that. In order to keep the whole thing free, you only had to cancel the trial subscription in good time before the monthly fees were incurred with the transition to the normal subscription.

The different Kindle and Echo models, which are always available at new special prices on Prime Day, are also popular. These are part of a broader range where you can buy thousands of items at an individual discount. You just have to note that many offers on Prime Day are only valid for a short time, so it is best to hurry up to profit.

This is how you buy at Amazon as cheaply as possible

Even if the retailer does not constantly change the range, prices change dynamically. Most things are cheaper in the morning than in the evening and cost less at the beginning of the week than at the weekend.

In addition, Amazon works a lot with psychology - for example, by analyzing the behavior of regular customers or making assumptions based on the access method. Here it is especially advisable that you shop anonymously and first log in at the checkout. In addition, the shop often shows higher prices on mobile devices or in the app because it assumes that buyers are in a hurry.

Another trick to save is the savings subscription. Here you can choose everyday items from cat food to contact lens care products, which are then sent to the customer at a self-selected rhythm. You get a discount compared to the price for individual orders - so anyone who needs regular supplies of a product is well advised with a subscription.
