What are the first offers of the winter sales 2023?

The 2023 winter sales have been launched for a few days in certain departments. The first offers are starting to be offered in certain stores, and it is possible to take advantage of several great promotions. In particular, it is already possible to take advantage of excellent promotions on smartphones like the Google Pixel 6, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra or even the Apple iPhone 13.

Note that the first offers available may not be offered as part of the 2023 winter sales. Also beware of very aggressive promotions, and check these with a price comparator like Idealo.

When do the sales end?

The 2023 winter sales will end on Tuesday February 7 in a majority of departments. This date chosen by the Government allows the event to take place over several weeks, and thus to offer many promotions. Also note that the balances are used to being affected by often highly anticipated markdown periods.

The different markdown dates are at the discretion of the merchants, but are generally offered every week. The second week of sales usually represents the second markdown, and so on. These periods are ideal for finding both new and existing, but reinforced price drops.

What dates for the 2nd and 3rd markdowns?

The dates for the 2023 winter sales markdowns are highly sought after. These periods generally correspond to the best deals. The participants in the event do not fail to propose new offers, or to reinforce those already existing with the 2nd and 3rd markdowns. These usually take place during the second and third week of the sales.

If the brands participating in the summer sales respect this tradition, the 2nd markdown of the sales will begin on Wednesday 18 January. The 3rd markdown will fall around January 25th. However, these decisions remain to be determined according to the terms of each brand participating in the winter sales.
