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

black friday cyber monday

This year, Black Friday is kicking off early to accommodate shipping delays. Many sales are already in full swing! Cyber Monday will be Monday, November 29th, 2021.

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.

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 11/29: here are some great last minute Cyber Monday deals I found today!

Best Tech Sales

  • SAMSUNG FRAME: The Samsung Frame TV (seen in my living room above!) is $502 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 last year and we absolutely LOVE it.
  • SAMSUNG FLATSCREEN: For a lower-priced alternative, we also own this Samsung flat-screen—the 5o” 4K UHD smart TV.

    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 $90 off. I used to make fun of my husband for wearing them…and I then I tried them. I’ll never look back. 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 20% off and the VertuoNext is on sale for 21% off. 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.)

The is the VertuoPlus!

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 41% off. Keep checking back if it’s sold out—Nordstrom Rack has been restocking it frequently.

  • SERENA & LILY: 25% off everything with code ITSHERE. 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 30% 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 40% 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 $99.

Best Beauty Sales

My full list of picks can be found here.

  • REVLON BLOWDRYER: I found my HOLY GRAIL Revlon hair dryer on sale for 42% off. 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

  • PHILLIPS SONICARE TOOTHBRUSH: This baby will go on sale for 40% off on Friday only.

  • TOMMY JOHN: You’ve seen me rave about this brand before. Entire site is 20% off right now. Their “second skin” line is everything. Matt (and our dads!) all loooove TJ.

Best Women’s Gifts

And this is random but hear me out: Matt got this posture corrector from a friend and we’ve both been wearing it while we work. IT REALLY HELPS (and it’s only $12 right now with the discount.)
  • STUART WEITZMAN: These over-the-knee boots are on CRAZY sale for $273. (Make sure you add the extra BFSTEALS promo code at checkout!)

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!)

  • SAKS: Saks Fifth Avenue is offering up to 50% off select women’s clothing and accessories.

    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.
