As you can see in our real-time guide above, the big brands jostled at the gate to seduce millions of French people for these French Days. Cdiscount, Fnac, Boulanger, AliExpress or Amazon have made great efforts to help reduce your expenses. While inflation is still higher, it is important to save money.
On the internet, the most popular product categories are high-tech and household appliances. Unsurprisingly, the French Days highlight these two themes very clearly. They are also the ones we have favored in our selection. That said, there are tens of thousands of offers in all on all merchant sites and across all categories.
If you have some time this Friday or this weekend, we invite you to take a quick tour of each of the big e-tailers in France. For the French Days, they want to show their most beautiful face. This operation, which aims to compete with Black Friday, displays quite surprising prices on recent and very fashionable products.
How to choose your business well?
On each of the trading platforms, there are thousands of offers that have been put forward since Wednesday morning. Therefore, it is difficult not to be tempted. We therefore advise you to be as direct as possible and to only consult the special French Days offers that concern you. The savings can be substantial even if merchants are not legally allowed to sell at a loss.
Indeed, they have the right to resort to such a strategy only during the sales, and under conditions. That said, they have the right during the French Days to lower their margin as much as possible to offer you even lower prices. On recent products and major brands, you can save up to around 30%. This can already represent hundreds of euros in savings for you.
Since the start of the French Days, Cdiscount and its counterparts have however had to deal with numerous stock shortages. So you have to hurry on this Friday evening (and all weekend) so as not to give yourself too much time. In the worst case, you still have a legal withdrawal period of 14 days (minimum) to return the product and get a full refund.
If the French Days were originally invented to be a Franco-French alternative to Black Friday, French merchants were quickly joined by other e-commerce players. Amazon and AliExpress, which are in the Top 5 merchants in France, do not leave their rivals alone with this opportunity. They also do discounts during this time, well worth it.

Have the French Days therefore reached the quality of Black Friday? On the quantity of references available at a reduced price, no. On the other hand, on the quality of the offers (on certain very popular references), yes. Cdiscount, Fnac or Boulanger have compressed prices as much as possible on brands like Apple, Xiaomi, LG, Dyson or Samsung and this is very much appreciated. The enthusiasm is at its height.
The 3 bestsellers of the French Days
Are you only looking for the best deals of these French Days? We’ve listed all of the products above that we believe are among the most aggressive in price (and popularity). That said, if we had to give you a Top 3 of our bestsellers, here are the ones we would have chosen: the Dyson V10 cordless vacuum cleaner, the Bose Qc35 II headphones and third, the discount offered by NordVPN.
Cdiscount has been one of the main drivers of the success of the French Days since its launch a few years ago. It proves it again for this edition with very aggressive prices on all product categories. In household appliances, it sublimates us with a discount offer on the excellent Dyson V10 Motorhead. This model of cordless and bagless vacuum cleaner is a huge success. The premium British brand hardly ever offering live discounts, Cdiscount is like a UFO. The product goes to 379 euros instead of 469 euros, a very nice saving.
To continue in the good deals of the French Days on Cdiscount, there is the famous Bluetooth headphones from Bose, the QC35 II, which is at a crazy price. It drops to 189 euros (instead of 379 euros at launch, and around 250 euros at present), which represents excellent savings. In terms of value for money, this helmet is madness. No other model does better.
Finally, we cannot end this trio of good deals without mentioning the special French Days discount from the cybersecurity publisher NordVPN. The latter offers a VPN with an ultra affordable price, almost 3 times cheaper than its main competitors. For only 2.77 euros per month (instead of 10.59 euros anyway), you receive a VPN and an antivirus. As a bonus, it also offers you the first month.
Cdiscount dominates the French Days
If Amazon has succeeded in making Black Friday an unmissable event at home, Cdiscount is the real driving force behind these French Days. The merchant from Bordeaux, which is also the second e-merchant in France behind its great American rival, really delights us with offers across all product categories. It’s a great opportunity to optimize your budget before the summer.
Clearly, the quality of the offers for these French Days clearly exceeds that of the sales. These will be held at the end of June but have lost popularity over the years. The mediocre quality of the offers for this event do it a disservice, the French are starting to turn away from it to favor highlights such as Prime Day, Singles Day, Black Friday or even the French Days.
