Black Friday Shopping Guide

By Kaitlyn Berger '21


Black Friday: A shopaholic’s favorite holiday. I have many fond Black Friday memories throughout my years of being a shopping addict. One year my mom and I woke up at 5:00am to go to the, now abandoned, Chesterfield Mall. We had Auntie Anne’s pretzels for breakfast and raided the Justice store. Another year I was out of town, so I bought every clothing item that had been sitting in my Express app shopping cart for months. This year, because of the pandemic, Black Friday will look drastically different. Lines will be longer, capacities will be more limited, and overall, the experience will not be the same. Luckily, I have done some research on the best online deals so that you can do your shopping and gift buying from home.


Target

I could live inside a Target, seriously. Everyone knows Target has it all, from clothing, to cosmetics, to electronics, so take advantages of the many Black Friday deals offered this year. Get Christmas pajama sets for your family for just $10 (originally $25), or Lucky Brand jeans for $40 (originally $60). Also, if you have been looking for an excuse to buy all the recommendations Skincare by Hyram has for your skin type, Target has many personal care deals as well.

Best Buy

It is classic Black Friday to see tents camped outside of Best Buy days before. Instead of camping out, you can order online or use their new curbside pickup. There are plenty of deals on all the electronics on your Christmas list here. Save up to $400 on the new iPhone or $50 on a new speaker.

Amazon

This one is self-explanatory. Not only does Amazon have virtually everything, but with Prime, it will be delivered super quick. Everything you can possibly think of is on sale on Amazon, so I’m going to link the entire Amazon Black Friday deals page.


Clothing Stores

Aside from your Black Friday trinity of Target, Best Buy, and Amazon, there are plenty of deals going on at popular clothing stores. My favorite Black Friday deals pages are linked below:
