The Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals That Are Actually Worth It

It seems like Black Friday deals kick off earlier every single year. Many sales have already been announced and it can be stressful to sort through them all. That’s why I put together this list of #SilbSquad approved sales that are actually worth checking out.

Below is a recap of the best Black Friday deals currently available. I’ll continue to add new sales (that I deem worthy!) as I see them. I’ll also add Cyber Monday deals here, which will be on Monday, November 27 this year.

Also: just a friendly reminder that you don’t *NEED* anything on this list. Material things do not = happiness.

I try to focus on shopping for truly practical items that I was planning to buy anyway—not just buying random things because they happen to be on sale. That is all. Happy shopping! 

#SilbSquad Faves

  • CALPAK: 20% off everything. It’s the perfect time to buy the clear cosmetic case I bring on every trip.
  • BOLL AND BRANCH: Use code CYBER25 to get 25% off your purchase over $250. I bought my mom this throw last Christmas and she’s been obsessed with it ever since. It’s currently 25% off. Now is also an ideal time to treat yourself to new sheets or some luxe bath towels.

  • PHILOSOPHY: Up to 40% off with code VIPFRIDAYLTK. Get the “cozy” fragrance I’m obsessed with (fresh cream warm cashmere). It would be such an appreciated gift for a mom or sister/sister-in-law.

  • EQUILIBRIA: There are crazy Equilibria discounts happening right now. They’re doing 30% off sitewide + it’s stackable with my 15% off code (LINDSAYSILBERMAN).

  • ZUVI: I bought this fancy Zuvi blow dryer and love the way it makes my hair feel and look. It’s on sale for 25% off and is a great alternative to the Dyson.
  • STUART WEITZMAN: Perhaps the greatest find of the season? These knee high Stuart Weitzman boots are regularly $850, marked down to $440. Such a great investment piece so grab them while you can!

  • HOTEL LOBBY CANDLE: Actually… nevermind. This is the greatest find of Cyber week. (I’m only a little bias.) We’re offering 20% off all Hotel Lobby Holiday Collection candles starting Monday, November 20.

  • JENNI KAYNE: I finally did it. I pulled the trigger on the iconic Jenni Kayne cream-colored cashmere sweater now that it’s 25% off. My research told me to order my true size. (I got a small.)

  • TOMMY JOHN: I can’t speak more highly about these pajamas (they are sooooo cozy!) and they’re 30% off with code BF30.

  • ELEMIS: Save up to 25% off and receive a free gift with code CYBER. You know I’m a huge fan of the cleansing balm, and this gift-ready trio is on sale for 20% off.

Best Tech Sales

  • SAMSUNG FLATSCREEN: For a lower-priced alternative, we also own this Samsung flat-screen smart TV. It’s currently $100 off!

    We bought it at full price for our bedroom and are SO happy with it. Shocked at how good the quality is considering the price.

  • NESPRESSO: BFCM is a great time to buy a Nespresso machine. I’ve found the best prices to be on Amazon.

    The Nespresso VertuoPlus is 30% off and so is the VertuoNext. I have both! If you’re tight on space, I’d recommend the VertuoNext as it has a slimmer profile; otherwise, I love the VertuoPlus! (It has a slightly larger water tank and holds more capsules.)

Nespresso Pro Tip: If you’re buying a VertuoPlus, you might notice that some machines say “De’Longhi” or “Breville” on the front, while others say “Nespresso.” They are all the same machine—I confirmed this with their team!

Best Home Sales

  • BAREFOOT DREAMS: As basic as it is, I always say—no one is going to be disappointed if you get them a Barefoot Dreams blanket. A perfect fool-proof gift. It’s currently 51% off. Keep checking back if it’s sold out—Nordstrom Rack has been restocking it frequently.
  • OUR PLACE: The “Always Pan” that took Instagram by storm is on sale for $99.

  • WAYFAIR: Up to 70% off in all home categories. If you’re looking for furniture, there are crazy deals going on.

  • WEST ELM: Amazing couches, rugs, and home decor are 50% off. This couch is a best-seller (and looks cozy AF.)

  • SERENA & LILY: 25% off dining, 30% off bedding and bath, 40% off chairs, 30% off lighting, up to 70% off clearance, and more. We’ve ordered so many incredible things from S&L (including this super soft wool rug, which we have in our bedroom). The quality is absolutely amazing.

Best Beauty Sales

  • CHARLOTTE TILBURY: Up to 30% off a selection of her makeup and skincare classics.

    Really appreciate this list! I can tell you’re trying to be honest, aka not totally positive and also list the cons, like when a sale discount is kind of “meh”. Really makes it easier to trust your recs! I am using this as inspiration for my Xmas shopping (lot of women to buy for).

    Lindsay thank you for this! I went to order the 5050 boots but don’t see them as 20% off at Nordstrom. Am I missing it? Thanks again.
