Today is Singles Day in China, which means there are lots of deals to be had for the next 24-48 hours. Some are better than others, but here is a collection of items I’ve found. I’ll edit this post as I get more deals — be sure to share anything you find in the comments too! Note that some of these are affiliate links, and I may receive a small commission if you order anything (at no extra cost to you).
AliExpress code: try code 965DOUBLE11 for a store-wide coupon. This may not work in every country.
Anbernic deals. There are some pretty good discounts, like the RG351V for $91, RG351MP for $123, RG300X for $75, or the RG280M for $55. Combine that with the $9 off code 965DOUBLE11 and some of these are lower than I’ve ever seen. The official Anbernic website also has some discounts (10% off with code 1110) but the starting price is fairly high, so the end result may be more than what you find on AliExpress. You can also get an additional 3% off with the code FB1113 at checkout.
PowKiddy deals. Not a ton of deep discounts on their official page, but you can grab the RGB10 for $76, the TrimUI for $38, and save a few bucks on other devices.
TomTop deals. They are currently offering two different site-wide codes for 8% off (1111swide8 and SMCLICK8), 12% off orders over $50 (TTPOWER6) and other deals like $10 off coupon when signing in. They also are offering $30 off when spending $100, and $100 off when spending $250. Starting prices are a bit steep but the discounts and codes can bring them down significantly.
Banggood deals. They are listing lots of flash deals and coupons, you can stack them. Current discounts (before applying coupons) includes $93 for RG351V, $129 for RG351MP, and $98 for Super Console X Max.
GameSir X2 USB-C telescopic controller for $54 (usually $70). This is my favorite controller for cell phone gaming. You can stack coupons to get this for even cheaper.
Betop wired controller for $23. This is the wired controller I use for most of my testing, it has an excellent d-pad and a PS4 style layout. No analog triggers though.
KinHank store. If you are looking for a plug-and-play “Super Console X” TV box, they are on discount here. Your best money/value might be the Super Console X Max for $85. You can also grab one of their cheap controllers for $8 (great for kids).
Anker site-wide sale. They are offering $3 off any order over $3 (yes, really), and good discounts on everything. If you are looking for quality USB cables, hubs, or SD card adapters, their products are top-notch. Any of their wall chargers with the “IQ” label are great for charging retro handheld devices.
eBay phone discount. Not related to Singles Day, but eBay is offering an additional 10% off all refurbished phones with code SAVE10REFURB through November 14th. This is a good way to pick up an old phone to use as an emulation device.
A note on Amazon shopping. There are sales on Amazon all the time, but sometimes it’s hard to discern whether it’s a good deal or just a markup. Your best bet is to paste the Amazon product page URL into camelcamelcamel.com to see historical prices and whether it’s above or below normal prices.
