You are probably getting tons of emails and notifications about Black Friday. As I reflected on how to structure this post, I want it to be worth your while- i.e Helpful in pointing out some good deals, and not just listing all the sites that have sales. I’m going through some of the big retailers, and pulling out specific discounts and deals that I think make great Black Friday deals for parents.
What I will not be including is every site that has a discount. Because those are everywhere. You can pretty much assume that Gap and OldNavy will have huge discounts like 50% off and more. That is applied on the whole site and not really much more I can tell you that is helpful. If you have a favorite brand, chances are they are having some kind of sale!
It can be a little overwhelming to see everything all at once. Before you start shopping, I would create a list, even a basic one- of what exactly you are looking to buy this season. This way you have a plan for budgeting your money. It could be gifts for your family, but also it could be for yourself. If you are expecting a baby or looking into home upgrades in the near future, it’s a good time to purchase big ticket baby items and large electronics that are heavily discounted.
I’ll share specific products from Amazon and Target, and other big retailers. Since they have so much on sale, I’ll pull out the ones with the biggest discounts, best reviews, most loved and fit into great toy or game categories.
