Black Friday Cheat Sheet

Ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what the best Black Friday 2021 deals are and where to shop? We got you! This cheat sheet will tell you what time to shop online, whether you should bother going in store (hint: you’ll probably get to stay home this year!), and what deals to watch for.

Target

Shopping Black Friday at Target is always a good idea, especially since it can be done from home. In 2021, Target broke all their usual Black Friday rules and offered price matching, deals for almost two months straight, and more. The biggest challenge in 2021 is that we don’t know if Target will treat it like a pandemic year or not. If so, it’ll look a lot like 2020, if not, it’ll look like a traditional Target Black Friday year (probably with the addition of the loads of online deals we saw in 2020).

Amazon

The flood of deals coming from Amazon for the 2021 holiday season will rush in earlier than ever, and you’re gonna want to be ready.

Kohl's

I don’t typically think of Kohl’s as one of my first choices for buying big-ticket items such as PlayStation, Fitbit, Canon cameras or vacuums, but they absolutely are when it comes to Black Friday shopping. That’s because Kohl’s gives legit thanks to folks who choose to shop there during Black Friday in the form of boosted Kohl’s Cash and Kohl’s Rewards. I’m here to show you how to game this loyalty system and turn Black Friday purchases into money towards the rest of your holiday shopping.

Walmart

I know, I know. it’s not even Halloween and already I’m talking about Black Friday 2021. That’s because Walmart, and pretty much every other retailer in the nation, is kicking this event off early…again. I think super-early Black Friday, with the longer sale cycle, is going to be the norm from now on. So let’s start planning ahead to get the best deals!

Bath & Body Works

Bath & Body Works’ Black Friday sale is a good sale. But it’s not, in my opinion, a great sale. Black Friday takes third place in Bath & Body Works’ winter sale lineup behind Candle Day and the Semi-Annual Sale.

Macy's

Macy’s is famous for being a pioneer of Black Friday shopping traditions, like insane Doorbusters, $7.99 small appliances, and bonus diamond buys. Although 2020 looked different for everyone, Macy’s is doing what they can to keep the 2021 season as traditional as possible leading into Black Friday.

Home Depot

The Home Depot Black Friday sale is a favorite among do-it-yourselfers and folks wanting to buy dirt cheap holiday decor. In 2021, we can expect a different Black Friday shopping experience including additional social distancing (aka longer lines in store), and more online deals.

Sam's Club

For all of the big warehouses in 2020, Black Friday was a challenge. Having to spread shoppers out meant spreading Black Friday out. Sam’s Club in 2020 was no different, stretching Black Friday out farther than it has in years past. But it looks like Sam’s Club is hoping for more in-warehouse shoppers during Black Friday 2021.

Ulta

Let’s be honest, ULTA Black Friday 2021 deals are mostly about discounts on prestige brands like bareMinerals, Urban Decay and more. Oh, and those Black Friday perfume deals for holiday gifts!

Lowe's

The most recent Lowe’s Black Friday might be over, but you should still take advantage of all the best KCL Lowe’s deals. And before you even start planning your next Lowe’s trip, make sure you’ve taken a look at the best Lowe’s discounts for your latest DIY project.

JC Penney

JCPenney and Black Friday go together like coupons and sales. They’re just made for each other. With all the changes in 2021, we wanted to make sure you have the information you need to focus on how you can save, and what you should skip during JCPenney Black Friday this year.

CVS

It’s true — drugstores like CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid offer Black Friday deals, too. In fact, if you’re gonna go into a store on Black Friday, go to a drugstore. The Black Friday deals are LEGIT.

Costco

While Costco Black Friday isn’t necessarily known to lead the pack when it comes to Black Friday deals, you can still squeeze some value out of the dollars you know you’re gonna throw at Costco this holiday season.

History shows that electronics deals are often unbeatable during Best Buy Black Friday. That’s why we predict Best Buy’s Black Friday 2021 deals include cheap TVs, the latest video game releases, laptops, and more.
