Le goût des French Days : première fournée de promos brûlantes chez Boulanger, voici les meilleures

We reassure you right away, no, Boulanger is not a site for the sale of baguettes. It is one of the giants of French online sales, specializing in tech. While the French Days, a strong period of promotions, are coming, Boulanger is already offering very high prices on many products. Here is the selection of our specialist writing on the issue!

Boulanger and French Days: the essentials to know

Boulanger is one of 6 giants of French online sales at the origin of the French Days. The event is major for the industry, but it is perhaps less known to the general public, so a little reminder is in order.

The French Days were invented in order to counter Amazon and its famous “Prime Days” (we can also see a response to the very American Black Friday). The main French e-commerce sites have joined forces to create their own promotional period.

This year it’s happening from Wednesday 4 to Monday 9 May, but, as often with this kind of event, the good deals extend a bit beyond the official dates. As of today, we have spotted a significant number of strong promotions at Boulanger.

Our team, who knows by heart the flagship products of the tech market and the different price curves, has mobilized to make you a small in-house selection.

That being said, if you already have a specific product in mind, we invite you to surf the Boulanger site for yourself! 4K TV, sound bars, PC… there is everything.

The best pre-French Days Boulanger promos on 4K TVs

TCL 55C729: an award-winning 4K QLED TV ideal for the PS5 at a really crazy price at Boulanger

The 4K TV market has become extremely complex over time. Difficult to find your way around, but don’t panic, at JVTECH, we know a lot about it.

This TCL TV received an award at the prestigious EISA Awards : it is considered the best LCD TV of 2021 – 2022. If you want better, you will have to buy Mini-LED or OLED which cost twice the price.

  • The slab QLED allows a nice level of contract and a wide range of colors
  • The interface “Connected TV” of Android is extremely ergonomic
  • And above all… this TV has a panel 120Hz and HDMI 2.1 ports

Clearly, this TCL of 55 inches (i.e. 139 cm diagonal, the current standard) is perfect for the next gen, PS5 like Xbox Series X since it is one of the rare screens capable of sending 4K 120 FPS.

With such characteristics, we expect to pay at least 1000€. But no, TCL is one of the Chinese giants that shines with its value for money, and it was launched at €699. Better, Boulanger adds its own reduction of -22%, and you only have to pay 699€. It’s pretty crazy.

Finally a 55-inch LG 4K OLED TV for €899

The taste of the French Days: first batch of hot promotions at Boulanger, here are the best

The LG 55 A1 is the entry level of the very high end. OLED technology and its infinite level of contrast is really impressive, but it is very technical and therefore very expensive to produce.

In 2021, LG Display factories were still the only ones in the world capable of producing large OLED panels. The Korean firm therefore masters the subject particularly well, and it then tried to create a more accessible OLED television than its flagship ranges reserved for the widest purses.

The A1 was born. Here, no 120 Hz panel, only 60 Hz (which is already more than enough, on Next Gen, almost no game manages to hold up well to 4K in 60 FPS). And… that’s about the only major concession on far more expensive OLED TVs.

Launched at around €1,100, the A1 now drops to €899 at Boulanger. From 55-inch OLED at this price, it’s truly exceptional.

Before French Days: the best Boulanger promotions on smartphones

Samsung Galaxy A53: an ultra-modern 5G smartphone with a crazy value for money

We don’t believe our eyes. The Samsung Galaxy A53 has just been released at a price of €459 and, in anticipation of the French Days, Boulanger is already selling it off at €399. Better: if you buy the new Samsung Galaxy A53, you are entitled to a free pair of Galaxy Buds (these are Samsung’s AirPods if you will).

The Galaxy A represent the middle / high end at Samsung. The concessions to the Galaxy S are not huge for a much softer price.

  • Beautiful battery 5000mAh
  • 4 photo sensors beautifully made
  • 2 SIMs
  • Water resistance
  • Smartphone powerful enough for any modern game
  • Login 5G

… in short, a beautiful beast for its price

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: one of the kings of Android on sale before the French Days on Boulanger

The taste of the French Days: first batch of hot promotions at Boulanger, here are the best

It may be called “S21”, this high-end smartphone from Samsung was released at the beginning of 2022.

Why ? Quite simply because Samsung has made a habit of offering “Fan Edition” (this is the meaning of FE) of its high-end smartphones. Basically, the Korean company takes into account consumer feedback on a product, here the S21, and releases an improved model.

The S21 FE is one of the best Android offers today on absolutely every level. Released a very short time ago for €759, here it is already at €699 at Boulanger. Ah the magic of the French Days…

Headphones and soundbars: audiophiles delighted by Boulanger before the French Days

Samsung HW-Q800A: a widely acclaimed soundbar and not too expensive before the French Days

I am going to abandon the journalistic “we” to tell you about my personal opinion. I bought a sound bar recently, and, seeing this promo, I really regret having missed it.

The Q800A is an excellent model, with a nice spatialization of the sound, clear voices and powerful bass. Of course, it has connected speaker options, it harmonizes with all 4K TVs but even better with Samsung TVs, and it is Dolby Atmos compatible.

The Q800A is part of the crème de la crème, usually sold at around €800 (the price of very good sound bars), it is currently offered at €499: -37%. Better, Boulanger adds another house promo and offers 10€ of immediate discount for every 150€ of purchase. We therefore add 30€ of additional promo and we arrive at 469€.

Quite honestly, for a bar of this caliber, it’s mind-blowing.

Sony WH-1000XM4: undeniably one of the best wireless headphones in the world at a bargain price

The taste of the French Days: first batch of hot promotions at Boulanger, here are the best

The XM4 doesn’t have many rivals. For many tech journalists, myself included, this is even the best wireless headset on the market.

It’s beautiful, comfortable, active noise reduction completely cuts you off from the world, fast charging compatible, 38-hour battery life, well-made hands-free kit and above all, almost perfect sound on all counts… what can I say except that we are close to perfection.

For similar specs, Apple’s AirPods Max was launched at double the price.

While it almost always sells for €349, the much-renowned XM4 has just dropped to €308 in anticipation of the French Days. Small bonus, Boulanger treats you to 4 months of Spotify Premium subscription.

Boulanger empties his stocks on certain products… including this fighter plane.

  • screen 17 inch
  • RTX-3080
  • Ryzen 7 5800H
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 1TB SSD
  • WiFi 6 available

If you know a bit about it, you should have the falling jaw. It’s very simple, it is one of the most powerful PCs on the market. For professional use (video export, 3D software, etc.), or 4K gaming with all levels of detail at full speed, we couldn’t find it cheaper.

The RTX 3080, even in its laptop version, is a little monster, the Ryzen 7 supported by 16 GB of RAM has very high computing power, the SSD is very comfortable…

Normally, a PC of this caliber costs close to 2500€. Boulanger really wants to get rid of this Nitro 5 since he is offering it for only €1799.

Hurry: stocks are not expandable.
