For some, the best part of Thanksgiving week is the festive feast. But as any savvy shopper knows, the true highlight comes after the plates of turkey and stuffing have been cleared: Black Friday. It’s the best day of the year for deal hunting, and retailers have really stepped up their game for 2018. We’re talking discounts on everything from beauty products and clothes to electronics — nearly all of which you can shop from the comfort of your couch (thank you, Internet). Of course, if you live for the thrill of getting up at 4 a.m. to wait in line, that option still stands, too.
We’ve rounded up some the Black Friday deals you don’t want to miss from retailers like Amazon, Target, and Sephora, so you can get your hands on everything you need at prices that seem to good to be true.
If you can’t enter a Target store without $100 worth of stuff you never knew you needed, we’ve got good news: The big box store is offering major deals in honor of Black Friday, both online and IRL. If you’ve been thinking about re-stocking your kitchen all year, now’s the perfect time with many items as low as $10 (think: a countertop grill, a coffee maker, and a toaster). Beauty lovers are in luck, too, with a “buy one, get one 50 percent off” sale on all cosmetics and personal care items. Considering there is legit something for everyone on your gifting list in the Target aisles, you’ll be able to check off all of them at some seriously discounted rates.
Considering how easy it is to spend half of your paycheck at Sephora, Black Friday is the holiday for beauty lovers. The brand is offering a number of its best-sellers for under $15 — including the Too Faced “Prime Time” set featuring the brand’s iconic Better Than Sex Mascara, a kit of three of Benefit’s best products, and a mini duo of Peter Thomas Roth skin care. The sale is happening on November 23, and this is one you definitely won’t want to miss. Download the Sephora app to for more sneak peeks.
No matter what you need, Amazon has got you covered (I once ordered a device designed for the sole purpose of massaging my scalp), and Black Friday is no exception. In fact, Amazon’s “Black Friday” sale is so good, it runs for an entire week, with more than 50 different deals every day and thousands of different ways to save across all departments. Some standout offerings? Up to 50 percent off select denim, including styles from J.Crew, DL1961, and True Religion; 50 percent off the HP OfficeJet 5255 Wireless Printer; and up to 80 percent off select Kindle best-selling books.

The electronics mecca is known for its unbeatable Black Friday deals. If you’re in the market for a new TV, you can get a 70-inch Samsung for only $699 (that’s $300 less than usual). Or, if you want to stream your favorite episodes straight to your TV from your laptop, pick up a Google Chromecast for only $25 (plus get one for a friend with their 2-for-$45 deal). From laptops to sound systems, Best Buy has got it all online and in-store.
Long gone are the days of lining up outside Walmart at 4 a.m. the morning after Thanksgiving — you can now shop their Black Friday deals from the comfort of your couch, starting on November 21 (in-store deals begin November 22). Whether you’re looking to restock your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or closet, Walmart has deals on appliances, including trendy mini fridges, electronics, and sheets (among so much more) for far less than usual. Now, excuse me – I’ll be busy trying to figure out how I can fit a $129 full-sized trampoline in my NYC apartment.
Ulta is offering over 160 deals, which means your makeup bag and beauty cabinets are about to be bursting at the seams. Some of your favorite brands like Boscia, FIrst Aid Beauty, and Garnier (plus over 50 others) are up to 50 percent off, and every purchase over $65 comes with an 18-piece beauty bag as a free gift. That’s a steal!
The parade isn’t the only Macy’s event to get excited for this week. In honor of Black Friday, they’re offering deals on clothing, bedding, and beauty items — among a whole lot more — some of which you can already shop online as part of the preview sale. Personally, I’ll be picking up a new set of bath towels for only $2.99 a pop, and every item in Martha Stewart’s cookware collection, which is down to $29.99 – 77.99 from the usual $99.99 – 259.99.
