8 items to check off your Black Friday shopping list
Jingle all the way to unexpected savings.
Black Friday is known for its stellar deals on fashion and electronics. But holiday deals in other retail categories can be just as sweet, so you may want to update your shopping list before heading out after turkey dinner.
1. Vacation packages
Caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, you’re probably not thinking about your next weekend getaway or family vacation just yet. But lots of travel booking sites have a history of offering insane travel deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Scour our Black Friday travel sales to find countless bottom-dollar deals on flights, hotels, cruises and more.
Just keep in mind that you might have to be flexible on your destination and travel dates to get the best deals out there. But who couldn’t use a little extra spontaneity, right?
2. Your New Year’s Eve outfit
Fashion is one of the biggest categories for Black Friday sales, and there are certainly plenty of dreamy threads to grab at bargain prices. But have you thought about how close New Year’s Eve is? It’s only a month away!
Take advantage of fashion deals and discounts now and pick out something extra special for NYE. Otherwise, expect to pay top dollar for all things sequins and glitter after Christmas. Check out our tips for fashion queens this Black Friday to make the most of the sales.
3. Prescription eyewear
Keep your eyes peeled for deals on glasses and sunglasses. Retailers like Warby Parker might have rare sales events up their sleeves for the holidays, helping you save heaps on prescription and nonprescription eyewear.
If you’re in the market for a new pair of specs, scan our list of Black Friday sunglasses deals to see where you might find the best prices this time of year.
Black Friday has quickly become one of the best times of year to snag savings on a new mattress. Nearly all online mattress companies participate in this holiday shopping extravaganza, so research now to decide which brand could be right for you. Most offer competitive savings and sometimes freebies like pillows or sheets when you place an order during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events.
When you’re ready to spring for a new bed, check out our list of the top Black Friday mattress deals to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your Black Friday buck.
5. Home appliances
‘Tis the season of giving, but you might want to give yourself a little treat if you have an appliance or two that might be on its way out. Washers, dryers, refrigerators, dishwashers and more are known to drop in price over the holiday shopping season, and you can usually save even more when you bundle more than one.
Scan through top appliance deals and take note of a few shopping tips for appliances in our guide before jumping on a deal.
7. Beauty treatments
While you’re snapping up those must-have beauty products on Black Friday, why not add a beauty treatment or two from your local salon? Check out sites like Groupon for the latest holiday deals and discounts on manicures, facials, laser hair removal and other treatments in your area.
8. Expensive stationery
Planning a wedding, birthday party or maybe a baby shower? Buy your invitations now!
This is one of the best times of year to score sweet deals on customized invitations, return address stickers and much more. Don’t miss Black Friday deals from Vistaprint and Shutterfly this season for ultra-low prices on everything from Christmas cards to personalized stamps.
Each year, Black Friday deals get bigger and better. Expect sales on just about everything you can think of, making this an excellent time of year to cash in on discounts for the holidays and beyond.
