Cyber Week is almost upon us, which means we are faced with yet another round of deals where we will have to practice self-control (or not). For better or worse, capitalism has these retailers and merchants dropping their discounts days in advance, so consider this a warm-up.
If we’re being honest, Black Friday is kind of like our Super Bowl. All our time spent browsing, screenshotting, and sharing our wish lists in our group chats has led up to these sales.
Historically, though, Black Friday is widely regarded as one of the biggest shopping days of the year, with sales and deals available at several retailers in stores and online.
Black Friday has become more than scoring TVs and electronics. Nowadays, it’s a great day(s) to score all those holiday gifts on your list without going too bankrupt. From stocking up on sweaters, winter boots, or even some early spring/summer trends, there’s plenty to peruse.
Luckily, we’ve rounded up some of the best early Black Friday sales to shop so you have more time to work on those recipes for next week.
Everlane is getting a head start on its Black Friday sale, with 25 percent off winter essentials like scarves, beanies, and socks. Mix and match your warm winter accessories or grab a few as gifts. Trust us, socks make a great winter gift even for the pickiest person in your life.
Nordstrom is continuing to add markdowns to its early Black Friday deals, with up to 60 percent off everything. We suggest stocking up on gifts and maybe shopping for a nice holiday outfit for yourself.
For once, you’ll get rewarded for going over budget. Bloomingdale’s is offering $25 off every $100 you spend on select items. So if you squint your eyes, you’re technically saving money when you spend more, right? Right. Everything’s on sale, from designer clothes to fun tech, so there’s really something for everyone. Again, we won’t judge if you just end up shopping for yourself.
Naturally, you can count on Saks for designer without the designer prices. Its early Black Friday deals include up to an additional 50 percent off select styles. So, yes, splurge on that designer bag while still saving enough to still get a few under-$50 gifts for your loved ones.
This sale will make you feel a little more joyful. Use the code OHJOY at checkout for 40 percent off select styles. If your entire work wardrobe is due for an upgrade, shop classic knits, vintage-wash denim, and loafers that will make your commute into the office worth it.
Get up and do things (like shopping) with Outdoor Voices. Select styles like its lightweight and adjustable exercise dress are up to 70 percent off. Browse the sale for deals on sweats, sports bras, and winter-ready gym gear, so you can stock up for your winter walks.
Whether you’re a frequent gymgoer or just like to look like one (same), Nike has sporty gear on sale. With the code ACCESS20, save up to 60 percent off athleisure you can actually work out in. Plus, sneakers to match! It’s also the opportune time to gift the sneakerhead in your life.
Quirky-cool retailer Lisa Says Gah is offering 25 percent off sitewide with the code GAH25 so you can shop all its colorful wares at a major discount. Because your closet was seriously missing some bright colors for the gloomy winter ahead, shop clothes, accessories, and, yes, claw clips.
