The Ultimate Guide to Black Friday & Cyber Week

Sharing the ultimate guide to Black Friday and Cyber Week including a list of all the best sales at every retailer & all of my top picks by category.

It’s happening, y’all. The best sales of the year are right around the corner and it’s time to start prepping. You need a good strategy when navigating all the sales. Plus, a plan for your mind & your money is important! Today, I’m sharing the ultimate guide to Black Friday and Cyber Week sales. This page will be your go to source for all the best sales, & what I think is best to buy during the biggest holiday sales of the year. I’d recommend bookmarking it or saving it so you can easily reference it throughout the next week or so! I update it regularly, so it’s worth checking back to get more information on all the best sales & items on sale.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER WEEK

I think we need to come up with a new term because it’s hard to know when Black Friday stops and when Cyber Monday or now, Cyber Week begins. There are so many retailers that do sales for both that it can be confusing. Sales start early (Pre-Black Friday Sales) & may get extended a few days (Cyber Week instead of Cyber Monday), so I really just call it holiday sales. Black Friday & Cyber Week are great no matter what you call them, so know that the terms are basically interchangeable at this point & all that matters is that you’re going to save big time!

BLACK FRIDAY PREP

To start getting ready for Black Friday, you can start picking out items that you want & saving them to easily check back & see if they go on sale. The Liketoknow.it app’s wishlist feature is a great way to do this or many retailers allow you to create a wishlist. Adding things to your shopping bag & checking back works, too! A lot of retailers tell you what their sales will be, so try searching your favorite sites for insider info. Looking back at last year’s deals is a great way to get an idea of what reatilers may offer this year, too.

MY TOP PICKS BY RETAILER

Below I’ve rounded up my top picks by retailer from some of my favorite sites. I hand selected all of these items based on what I have on my ‘wish list’ or already own & what I thought would make great gifts for others. Just click on any of the images & you’ll be taken straight to that product’s page to shop.
