Technical products with big discounts on Black Friday
Hugh Hoang, an office worker in Ho Chi Minh City, said he managed to order a data port for a MacBook for VND190,000 when the original price was VND950,000. If you wait for the flash sale period, users can also buy it for 95,000 VND, which is 1/10 of the price before the Black Friday promotion was implemented.
But with years of experience selling hunts, Hoang says it’s difficult to buy at the lowest price since his programs tend to be quick with online payments. This system is also easy to “break” because too many people are accessing it at the same time. Therefore, they often “recognize” the discount 1-2 days in advance and complete the order earlier.
“If you’re patient, you’ll find great Black Friday deals. Tech accessories are usually discounted,” Hoang said.
However, experts also recommend consumers to research and compare product prices before and during Black Friday to determine how closely devices are actually customized.
For example, today on the website of many systems, the most advanced smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 reduced its price by tens of millions of VND, from a discount of 40.9 million to 30.5 million because the product is selling well. This foldable phone model was sold at the end of August with a retail price of VND 40.9 million, fell more than VND 3 million in September and further fell to almost VND 3 million in early October. During Black Friday, devices will receive an additional discount of VND 1 million plus the cost of a reduced gift policy and e-warranty.
Meanwhile, in addition to the two models iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, whose prices have fallen by 4-8 million VND since the beginning of the week, there are also iPhone 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max, iPhone 13, iPhone 11… .
In the FPT shop, several laptop models from Lenovo, Dell, HP, Azus, MSI, Gigabyte also fell in price by several tens of percent. For example, the Lenovo 100e Gen 2 was adjusted from VND8M to VND4.8M and the HP Gaming OMEN was adjusted from VND39.9M to VND30.9M.
According to Mr. Dinh Hien, CEO of Surface City, sales of laptops and tablets in Vietnam could increase by 30-40% during Black Friday this year. Meanwhile, CellPhoneS said Black Friday was the biggest system sale of the year.
“Compared to last year, Black Friday social media searches more than doubled, suggesting customers are still waiting for deals. We expect revenue to grow by 50% in 2021 compared to the same period last year,” said a CellPhoneS spokesman.
In addition, this year’s Black Friday season took place during the World Cup, so some electronics supermarkets said the number of projectors sold also increased about three times compared to normal days. Models in the segment from 8 to 15 million are most popular among Vietnamese.
