It’s almost that time of year again. On Friday, November 24, Black Friday will descend upon the Thanksgiving-stuffed masses, giving them an opportunity to burn those extra calories with some hard-earned shopping cardio. Besides a start on getting fit in the New Year, Black Friday is known for some seriously insane deals. We compiled a list of some of the ones that we thought you’d love just as much as we do.
We already spend way more money than we should at Sephora, so a great Black Friday deal is highly appreciated. One that is particularly splendid is Benefit’s best-seller Beauty Blowout Set. Normally $43, it will be available for $15. The set includes the They’re Real! Lengthening & Voluminzing Mascara, Hoola Matte Bronzer Mini, and a High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter Mini.

With Barnes and Noble’s Black Friday deals, you can finally nab those books you’ve been wanting to read. The savings start on November 23 online, and continue on the 24th in store, up to Saturday, November 26. Save 50% on select books, movies, music, and more, in addition to other savings on things such as magazines and educational games for kids.
Old Navy is pretty affordable year-round, so it’s crazy that they take the savings way low to the flo’ for Black Friday. In what they call “Five Days of Cray,” you can start saving now, with different, special deals each day. Save 40% off your entire purchase until November 21; the next day the discount goes up to 50% until the 24th. There are thousands of items up to $10, even cozy socks for $1 (added bonus: Old Navy will match that dollar for Boys & Girls Clubs).

Highlighter is the real MVP of beauty in 2017. It instantly adds that glow that makes you look young and dazzling. Milk makes gorgeous highlighters, and for Black Friday (starting 11/21), will be offering all three of their Liquid Strobe pens, usually $24 each, for $30.
Every year, Amoeba Records releases a selection of 7” singles, LPs, CDs, etc. for Black Friday, to be sold on a first come, first serve basis. You can only snatch up one of each title, and most are usually extremely limited, so get on it if you want that special record to be part of your stash.

It just wouldn’t be Black Friday without a huge TV for a really low price. Best Buy is offering a 50” Sharp LED Smart 4K Ultra HD TV with Roku TV (where you can stream 500,000+ TV episodes and movies), for only $180 (usually $500). No, that is not a typo.
Nordstrom loves throwing a good sale. Why should Black Friday be any different? Several brands will be on sale, including Kate Spade. The ‘Small Cedar Street Harmony’ tote comes in a variety of colors, and is the perfect everyday bag to hold all your life’s stuff. Get it for $135, 49% off the retail price.
J. Crew is home to timeless, classic wardrobe pieces, but they can be a bit pricey. That’s why their current sale is so awesome. 500 styles are now available for under $50. J. Crew Factory is also offering 50% off your gift guide purchase.

You know we couldn’t leave the kiddos (or the young at heart) out of the deals. Toys “R” Us is having a great Black Friday sale, happening all week long, where you can save 25% on board games, 30-50% off on select items, and spend less with special daily deals. A big ticket item, the PS4 Slim 1TB Console is $100 off, at $200.
Why don’t you finally buy that ticket to [insert location here], so you can finally go?! American Airlines is getting in on the Black Friday fun, according to travel fare aggregator site skyscanner. These deals will mostly likely take place from November 24-27, and include the following:

- RT Flights from L.A. starting from $52
- RT Flights from Miami starting from $78

Cameras are one of those investment pieces; you want to get the best camera for your buck. The Canon Rebel T6 DSLR bundle is just one part of Target’s Black Friday extravaganza. For $450, you get the Canon Rebel, with a 18-55mm lens, 75-300mm zoom lens, 16GB SD card, and bag, at a $300 savings. During this sale, you can also expect huge TVs, clothing, toys, phones, video games, and other goodies.

Imagine three carats of sparkling diamonds for about $1000 ($1045 to be exact). This is a reality for Black Friday at the Jewelry Exchange. The company is one of the largest diamond importers in the country, and manufactures most of their jewelry, so you receive it factory-direct, and without the markup.
Adidas has been one of the “It” fashion shoes of the past few seasons, in addition to being a bonafide classic. So it’s a win-win situation that the brand is having a big Black Friday sale. Take for example, these cobalt blue Campus Shoes for $45, which are 50% of the original price.
Happy shopping, everyone!
