While Thanksgiving is about eating delicious food, connecting with family members, being grateful for all of the awesome parts of life, and, for many of us, getting (responsibly) hammered, the following two “holidays”—Black Friday and Cyber Monday—are all about getting the best deals, discounts, and dumb-good savings on toys, electronics, and everything else you need to check off all the boxes on your holiday shopping list.
Black Friday is November 26 this year, and Cyber Monday is November 29, which means the biggest shopping holidays of 2021 are upon us. Tt’s not a bad idea to get an early start on your holiday shopping this year, since global supply chain issues could (and likely will) seriously affect your ability to get pretty much anything you buy online—including gifts—this year.
Looking for the best deals from this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales? We scoured the depths of the web to bring you the best promos we could find, from great deals on tech and electronics to huge savings on streetwear, cookware, and even fancy hand soap.
Happy shopping, and smash that CTRL+F to search for a specific category or brand, since there’s a lot to unpack here.
