Stuff Not Made in China on Black Friday / Cyber Monday 2022

Update 11/27/22 – Some of these deals expired on Black Friday, but it looks like some of them (especially the ones on Amazon) are getting extended into Cyber Monday. I’ll keep this page updated through Monday with relevant deals. Grab them while you can!

First off, I know I haven’t posted a new set of reviews in quite some time. Rest assured, I have a number of posts that I’m writing and a bunch I’m updating for 2023 as well; hopefully I’ll be getting those out in the next few weeks. If there’s any particular category you’d like me to prioritize, please let me know in the comments.

In the meantime, it’s become somewhat of a tradition for me to do a “live blog” for big sale days like Amazon Prime Day. Of course, the biggest sale day of all is today–Black Friday. I’ll be updating this blog throughout the day today; if you find a deal to share, please feel free to post it in the comments here or in the forum.

So without further adieu, let’s go to the deals!

  1. Good list!

    This black Friday, I bought this on Amazon:

    – Google Pixel Buds A, made in Vietnam
    – SHARP UA-PE30E-WB Air Purifier, made in Thailand
    – Samsonite money belt, made in Vietnam
    – UGEARS Pneumatic Motor, made in Ukraine
    – Sola PRO-FLEX measuring tape, made in England
    – Unger AK015 window cleaning set, made in Germany
    – Magimix Nespresso Inissia coffee machine, made in Ukraine
    – Netgear ProSAFE GS108GE network switch, made in Vietnam

  2. Thanks so much for sharing, Paul! I went ahead and updated the list with all the items I could find on Amazon here in the US.

    I have to admit, I’m jealous at all the options you have in Europe. I’ve been watching SHARP air purifiers for the longest time, but here in the US it seems that only the highest end ones ($400+) are made in Thailand, while all the others are made in China. Brands like Sola are invisible on Amazon US, and brands like Unger are all outsourced to China for the US market.

    Also aggravatingly, on Amazon in the US when I search for “UGEARS” I get a page full of listings from a China knock-off brand named ROKR, which has stolen every UGEARS design. Clueless American consumers won’t bother to see that UGEARS is made in Ukraine (which could use our support) and will buy this cheap China knock-off. Thanks for sharing–I will definitely be buying these models in the future for my daughter (okay, really for me :P)

    It sounds like you scored a pretty good haul on Black Friday, congratulations! 🙂 I ended up buying a bunch of stuff on my list, including the Philips toothbrush, the Samsung SSD, and the L.L. Bean snowtube 🙂

  3. I’m looking for a printer. Black ink. Cheap refills. Not made in china. Good record for longevity and repair.Can you help?

    1. Hi Jennifer. Great question. I’ll put that on the list of “Best of” posts I need to work on, but just so I don’t keep you waiting, here are some brands that I found to be promising.

      You’re in luck, it seems that there are a lot of great choices. Here are some of the more popular ones. You may still be able to get in on some Cyber Monday deals.

      Lots of good options out there. Good luck!

  4. It may seem that we have more options, but here it’s difficult as well. I also come across products that are only available in America, of which we only have Chinese alternatives.

    Sola is super, I have several tools of this brand, most of them produced in Austria and England. However, some products also come from China. If from Europe, it is printed on the product.

    Very sad about UGEARS, they indeed need our support right now. You have stated this before about the search results. I also often see that when I search for a certain brand, I’m led to Chinese alternatives. You really have to pay attention.

    As for the Philips toothbrush. It’s nice that they don’t come from China anymore. I used to always have Sonicare. They were then produced in the USA. However, this has long since become China and we have therefore completely switched to Oral B (made in Germany).
