The Best Black Friday and Cyber Week Sales

I have no problem admitting that I’m one of those people who love  Black Friday. The sales, the start of the holiday season and something about shopping in the middle of the night is fun for me. And I’m well aware most people think people like me are nuts. When I worked retail I still loved the day. The energy was fun and to be honest I saw more excitement and positivity then I ever saw crazy and nastiness. And while Black Friday has evolved over the years (so sad that some stores are opening at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving), it’s obviously still a savvy time to get your shopping done early and at a great price. (Yes, the sales will likely happen again throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas, but it’s a crapshoot and harder to manage.) I’ve migrated to buying many things online versus in-store, but I still plan on heading out early Friday to grab some deals on gifts.

I got a bit of my shopping in this morning, and I thought I’d share my favorite sales happening now. I’ll update this post as new sales roll around on Friday and Monday. It’s really become a week-long sale event and I’m certainly not complaining. Here’s where I shopped and where I hope to – should by wallet allow.

  • My co-worker wore this turtleneck to work and it looks so chic on – And now it’s on sale before the extra 20% off
  • This sweater is so cheap and I’m pretty sure it’s this year’s version of one I bought a couple years back
  • This parka is a great deal and I love both the green and navy

25% off clearance at Nike – Use code EPIC25

  • These are my favorite shoes for slipping on when you need to run errands (even though my foot doctor says they’re a no) – I also love this color and this one, too
  • I also own an older version of this top which I bought at a Nike Factory Store a few years back, and it’s held up so well

50% off at Gap – Use code CYBER – Extra 10% off – Use code TREAT

  • Not exaggerating, I own 4 pairs of these pajama joggers and they will be the most comfortable things you’ve ever spent money on – I plan on buying them for my sister and mom
  • These are my favorite “jeans,” – they’re really jeggings
  • These are technically “real” jeans and I have them, too
  • 2 pairs of cashmere socks for $10 is a steal and a great gift idea for last-minute guests
  • I love this beanie and this scarf

50% off at Old Navy – No code needed, but use code COZY for free socks

50% off at – Use code CLICK

50% off at Express – No code needed

  • I bought this sweater today, love the neutral color and sleeves, they also have it in a festive red which I may or may not have also bought (I can’t decide if that color red ever looks good on me -_-)
  • This LBD is on it’s way and I hope it’s cute
  • I’ve been eyeing this crossbody bag and it looks like it costs a lot more than $20

Various sales at Macy’s  – Obviously there’s a ton of other sales, too


25% off at + free 7-piece gift with $65 purchase – Use code 25OFF (I’ve never seen this – crazy rare discount!)

20% off at – Use code FRIENDS

  • You might as well just get this gift set for under $64 because the value is insane – and there’s two color options to choose from
  • The cult classic eye make remover that I use sparingly when I get a sample
  • A cute little highlighting trio

Sales I Haven’t Shopped But Am Still Considering…

As I mentioned, I’ll be updating this over the weekend and through Monday. Hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving – and feel thankful that we’re able to give gifts for ourselves and others this time of year, no matter how big or small.
