Boulanger and French days: the most important thing to know
Boulanger is one of 6 giants in French online sales dating back to the French days. The event is large for the industry, but it is perhaps less well known to the general public, so a small reminder is in order.
The French days were invented to against Amazon and its famous “Prime Days” (we can also see an answer to the very American Black Friday). The major French e-commerce sites have teamed up to create their own campaign period.
This year it’s happening from Wednesday 4th to Monday 9th May, but as is often the case with these kinds of events, the great deals extend a little beyond the official dates. As of today, we have seen a significant number of strong campaigns at Boulanger.
Our team, who know the technology market’s flagship products and the various price curves by heart, has mobilized to make you a small internal selection.
That said, if you already have a specific product in mind, we invite you to browse the Boulanger site for yourself! 4K TV, sound bars, PC … that’s all.

TCL 55C729: an award-winning 4K QLED TV ideal for PS5 at a really crazy price at Boulanger
The 4K TV market has become extremely complex over time. Hard to find your way around, but do not panic, at JVTECH we know a lot about it.
This TCL TV received an award for the prestigious EISA prices : it is considered to be the best LCD TV in 2021 – 2022. If you want better, you will have to buy Mini-LED or OLED, which costs twice the price.
- The plate QLED provides a nice level of contract and a wide range of colors
- The interface “Connected to TVof Android is extremely ergonomic
- And above all … this TV has a panel 120Hz and HDMI 2.1 ports
It is clear that this TCL of 55 inches (ie 139 cm diagonal, the current standard) is perfect for the next generation, PS5 as Xbox Series X, as it is one of the rare screens capable of transmitting 4K 120 FPS.
With such properties we expect to pay at least 1000 €. But no, TCL is one of those Chinese giants that excels with its value for money, and it was launched at € 699. Better yet, Boulanger adds its own -22% reduction and you only have to pay € 699. It’s pretty crazy.

Finally, a 55-inch LG 4K OLED TV for € 899
The LG 55 A1 is the entry level at the very high end. The OLED technology and its infinite level of contrast are 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 company therefore masters the subject particularly well, and it then tried to create a more accessible OLED television than its flagship series reserved for the widest purses.
A1 was born. Here there is 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 at 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 on the Boulanger. From the 55-inch OLED at this price, it is truly unique.

Before the French days: the best Boulanger campaigns on smartphones
Samsung Galaxy A53: an ultra-modern 5G smartphone with an insane value for money
We do not believe our own eyes. Samsung Galaxy A53 has just been released at a price of € 459, and in anticipation of the French days, Boulanger is already selling it for € 399. Better: If you buy the new Samsung Galaxy A53, you’re entitled to a few free Galaxy Buds (these are Samsung’s AirPods if you will).
Galaxy A represents the middle / high end of Samsung. The concessions for the Galaxy S are not big at a much softer price.
- Beautiful battery 5000mAh
- 4 photosensors beautifully made
- 2 SIM cards
- Water repellent
- Smartphone powerful enough for any modern game
- sign in 5G
… in short, a beautiful beast at its price

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: one of Android’s kings for sale before the French days at Boulanger
It can be called “S21”, this advanced smartphone from Samsung was released in early 2022.
Why ? Simply because Samsung has made it a habit to offer “Fan Edition” (this is the meaning of FE) of its advanced smartphones. Basically, the Korean company takes into account the consumer feedback on a product, here S21, and publishes an improved model.
The S21 FE is one of the best Android offerings today at absolutely every level. Published a very short time ago for € 759, here it is already for € 699 at Boulanger. Oh, the magic of the French days …

Samsung HW-Q800A: a highly acclaimed soundbar and not too expensive before the French days
I will give up the journalistic “we” to tell you about my personal opinion. I bought a soundbar recently and when I saw this promo I really regret having missed it.
The Q800A is an excellent model, with a nice spaciousness of sound, clear voices and powerful bass. Of course, it has connected speaker capabilities, 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, which is usually sold for around € 800 (the price of very good soundbars), it is currently offered at € 499: -37%. Better yet, Boulanger adds another house promotion and offers € 10 in instant discount for every € 150 you buy. We therefore add 30 € in extra campaign and we arrive at 469 €.
Honestly, for a bar of this caliber, it is mind-numbing.

Sony WH-1000XM4: undeniably one of the best wireless headphones in the world at a great price
The XM4 does not have many rivals. For many technology journalists, including myself, this is even the best wireless headset on the market.
It’s beautiful, comfortable, active noise reduction completely cuts you off from the world, compatible with fast charging, 38-hour battery life, well-made hands-free set and above all, almost perfect sound on all counts … what can I say except that we are close to perfection.
For similar specifications, Apple’s AirPods Max was launched at double the price.
While it almost always sells for € 349, the very famous XM4 has just dropped to € 308 in anticipation of the French days. Small bonus, Boulanger spoils you with a 4-month Spotify Premium subscription.

Acer Nitro 5 in stock reduction: this gaming PC is a war machine and it loses € 600 ahead of the French days
Boulanger empties its stocks of certain products … including this fighter jet.
- the screen 17 inches
- Ryzen 7 5800H
- 16 GB RAM
- 1TB SSD
- WiFi 6 available
If you know a little about it, you should have the falling jaw. It is very simple, it is one of the most powerful PCs on the market. For professional use (video export, 3D software, etc.) or 4K games with all levels of detail at full speed, we could not find it cheaper.
RTX 3080, even in its portable version, is a small monster, Ryzen 7 supported by 16 GB RAM has very high computing power, the SSD is very comfortable …
Usually a PC of this caliber costs close to 2500 €. Boulanger really wants to get rid of this Nitro 5 as he is offering it for only € 1799.
Hurry up: stocks can not be expanded.
