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 / Cyber Monday deals currently available. I’ll continue to add new sales (that I deem worthy!) as I see them. Cyber Monday will be Monday, November 28th, 2022.

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! 

Update as of 11/24: here are some great Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals I’ve found!

  • My mom saw this throw at my apartment and asked for it as a Christmas gift. I’ll be buying it for her while it’s 20% off.
  • BlueMercury has 20% off purchases of $250+ (including a lot of brands that are usually not discounted, like Dyson).
  • There are crazy Equilibria discounts happening right now. They’re doing 25% off sitewide + it’s stackable with my 15% off code (LINDSAYSILBERMAN).

Best Tech Sales

  • SAMSUNG FRAME: The Samsung Frame TV (seen in my living room above!) is $300 off. I’ve compared several different websites for pricing, and the best deal seems to be here.

    We bought ours for this price during Black Friday/Cyber Monday a couple years ago and we absolutely LOVE it.

  • 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.

  • AIRPODS: Found them for $50 off. I honestly couldn’t live without them. So simple. So necessary.

  • DYSON: The Dyson Cyclone V10 is on sale for $100 off.

    I’d recommend buying them here as they have a best price guarantee. I’ve had this vacuum for 4 years and can vouch that it’s worth every penny.
  • 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

  • PARACHUTE: The lightweight duvet insert I’m OBSESSED with from Parachute is 20% off (while supplies last).

    They also have 20% sitewide. I can’t recommend the percale bed bundle enough, particularly for people who get hot when they sleep!

  • 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 38% off. Keep checking back if it’s sold out—Nordstrom Rack has been restocking it frequently.

  • SERENA & LILY: 25% off everything with code GRATITUDE. 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.

  • H&M HOME: Guys—don’t sleep on H&M home! They have 20% off site-wide and the stuff is AMAZING. We got so many incredible fancy-looking home decor pieces from H&M for insanely cheap.
  • WAYFAIR: If you’re looking for furniture, there are crazy deals going on at Wayfair (this media console is pretty chic and has amazing reviews). They also have up to 80% (!!) off GE Appliances.

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

  • OUR PLACE: The “Always Pan” that took Instagram by storm is on sale for $95.

  • REVLON BLOWDRYER: I found my HOLY GRAIL Revlon hair dryer on sale for under $30. Trust me when I say it will blow your mind (ha!).

  • RITUAL: The multi-vitamin I’ve been taking for years is offering 40% off (the best discount I’ve seen). Use code LINDSAY40.

Best Sales for Men’s Gifts

Best Women’s Gifts

A fancy cashmere set from Naadam (40% off) makes for a thoughtful holiday gift.
  • SPANX: My favorite Spanx faux leather leggings are 20% off. Size up. I’m usually a small but I wear a medium in these. They have serious compression so they REALLY suck you in and are super flattering. Everyone I know is obsessed.

  • RIKI LOVES RIKI MIRROR: My favorite light-up vanity mirror is on sale for 27% off, which is the most I’ve ever seen it discounted. (Fun fact: it was one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things” a few years ago!)

    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.
