Black Friday 2018


It’s officially every shopping addict’s favorite time of year! I’m doing most of my shopping online and thought it would be nice to start a post on where I am shopping, what I’m buying and what I’m wishing for! I’ll be updating throughout the weekend so feel free to check back and see my updates.

Lord and Taylor

Lord and Taylor has some good sales going on right now, automatically reduced with no promo code. Typically it’s hard to get free shipping so the first deal is free shipping on ALL orders! Second, there are two promo codes available:

  • FRIDAY will give you 20% off of select regular and sale price items.

  • BONUS will give you $25 off $200

My Holiday Picks:


Per usual, Express is doing 50% off everything and free shipping on all orders. This is a solid time to buy holiday party dresses, work clothes, and basics. They have a lot of really cute things out right now! If you are signed up for Express rewards, make sure you check if you have certificates to get additional money off.

My Holiday Picks:

Abercrombie & Fitch

This store has been a favorite of mine for forever. The quality is great and they are always on trend. They’ve already started their 50% off the entire store, plus free shipping on all orders.

My Holiday Picks:


Nordstrom always offers free shipping and returns, which is the biggest perk to shop with them. This weekend they have several items on sale for up to 60% off. Nordstrom also rolled out their rewards membership program a few years ago, so now you can earn points without having to own and use a Nordstrom credit card. If you sign up and shop this weekend, you can get $20 in Notes ($40 if you are cardholder) if you spend $300.

My Holiday Picks:

Forever 21

It’s been a while since I’ve shopped here but their Black Friday deal is pretty good and they had a LOT of things I wanted to buy! I’m really excited to get the items I ordered. If anything doesn’t work out, they finally changed their return policy to give you all your money back. Much more hassle free! Just make sure the item isn’t eligible for online returns only (it will tell you during checkout). You can also opt for free in store pickup if you prefer.

  • BLKFRI30: 30% off sitewide AND free shipping!

My Holiday Picks:


Although they’re getting over their big beauty insider promotion from the past 2 weekends, they still have some decent sales going on! Sephora is also known for releasing some good holiday perfume sample sets, each one comes with a coupon to redeem a FULL bottle of the one you like best. If any promos come back, I’ll post them here. In the meantime, I’m sharing some of my favorite products that I have purchased over the past few weeks. Shipping is free over $50.

My Holiday Picks:

Henri Bendel

This is one of my favorite stores to shop every Black Friday, but this year is especially more important. Sadly, Henri Bendel will be closing it’s door soon so now is the best time to stock up (don’t worry, everything has a 1 year warranty). Their packables are by far my FAVORITE and best essential items for travelling. I also have several card cases and they are perfect for carrying cards and cash in small handbags, and you can get them monogrammed. Their deals are:

  • In Store and Online: Everything is between 30-60% off plus an additional 10% off of sale items

  • In Store: Free Canvas Pouch with $150 purchase, Free Canvas Backpack with $250 purchase, Spend $400 and get both

  • All purchases will get you a $50 splurge card, redeemable on a $150 purchase between 12/6-12/24

  • Free shipping on most orders and free returns on all orders

My Holiday Picks:


Today (11/23) Bloomingdale’s has some great deals going on! If you are a free loyalist rewards member you get extra perks. I highly recommend joining, it gets you free shipping and free return shipping on all orders throughout the year plus you earn reward certificates. Whenever I buy Burberry, it’s usually from them because they give incentives for your purchase, where a lot of other retailers won’t. Here is today’s sale:

  • BUY MORE, SAVE MORE: Automatically applies to your cart on products that are included in the sale (stated in the item description). 15% off $100-249, 20% off $250-399, 25% off $400+. This is ON TOP of sale prices.

  • POWER POINTS: Loyalists will receive a $25 reward certificate for every $100 you spend on qualified items (stated in item description).

  • TRIPLE POINTS: All other purchases will get you triple points, getting you closer to a reward certificate.

  • FREE SHIPPING: no code needed

My Holiday Picks:


This store is so great for basics and on trend clothing at a reasonable price. They have so many cute holiday outfits and outerwear. Their sale is:

  • 30% off your entire purchase, enter code 3238 at checkout

  • Free shipping

Other Deals to Shop

Black Friday is good for more than just clothing. Here are some other items to consider purchasing:

  • FURNITURE- in store and online you can get some awesome deals! I try to time all of my major furniture purchases for this time of year and the savings add up. I’ve also seen a lot of good Christmas tree sales going on!

  • APPLIANCES- same as furniture. Big purchases are always my go to for this weekend.

  • ELECTRONICS- Cameras, TVs, iPads, Computers, Phones… you name it, it’s probably on sale! Best Buy and Costco are my go-to’s but there are plenty of other stores offering amazing deals (Target, Walmart, etc.).

  • TRAVEL- Airfare deals should be going on all weekend long so if you’re dying to get away, start researching and planning your trip!

  • CARS- In need of a new car? Dealerships usually have some pretty good incentives going on. The best deal I ever got in a car was during Black Friday weekend.
