Black Friday’s back — and it's coming in hot with all sorts of shopping steals. The day after Thanksgiving has become nothing short of a monumental holiday in and of itself with every kind of store under the rainbow serving up can’t-pass-up savings on all sorts of things.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or getting that Christmas list knocked out early, Friday, November 23 is deal day this year. Well, actually, the special savings start early on Thanksgiving Day and go right through the middle of the night for many especially eager stores (and shoppers!).
So, rock on to these doorbuster deals that will have you giving thanks — again — right after you finish that Thanksgiving feast.
But, hey, if you’re not about that crazy Black Friday life — or, if you’re more into experiences than things — then keep your eye on travel sites. You might just score a cool adventure for next to nothing while hiding from those shopping crowds.
When: Thanksgiving Day, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Black Friday Doorbusters, 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You may think of Macy’s as the place for clothes. But, this Black Friday, it’s also all about your house and home with every single kitchen appliance you could want at a deep discount — think $7.99 across the board for tons of items, from blenders to panini grills, air fryers, and more — along with plates, cutlery, vacuums (Dyson!), holiday decorations, bedding essentials, luggage, grooming gear and, of course, all the garments for men, women, and children.
- Diamonds are a girl’s best friend — and Macy’s has a $200 pair of diamond cluster stud earrings that are $29.99, with any $50 or more purchase. Of course, this is only while supplies last, which may give you even more motivation to get there early.
- You know you want one: a Vitamix blender. The super-powered wonder machine that will have you making the thickest protein smoothies ever is $50 off. There’s also a pretty legit Ninja Pro Blender, too, that rings in at $59.99 — a savings of $65 off its original price.
- You’ll need a caffeine kick after your Black Friday all-nighter, so the Breville VertuoPlus Deluxe Coffee & Espresso Machine should be perfect. And, at $124.99 down from $312.99, just think of all that money you can save by making your own fancy coffee instead of buying it.
- Upgrade your pots and pans with a new 14-piece nonstick cookware set from your fave Food Network host, Rachael Ray. It’s $89.99, which is a huge savings from its original price of $299.99.
