Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day are two of the biggest shopping days of the year and for good reason. And although a lot of items on Cyber Monday will be more expensive than they were on Black Friday, these are not those. Below are the items we should have held out for, because today they’re cheaper than they were on Black Friday.
1. Toys are cheaper than Black Friday at Macy’s
Not only is this 2 for $20 mix and match sale better than Black Friday, it’s one of the best toy sales we’ve seen all year. Shipping is free for loyalty members on orders over $25. There’s no limit to how many toys you can buy; you just have to buy in quantities of two.
2. Xbox Series S is cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
This console was $239 on Black Friday but today is $40 cheaper thanks to a $40 Amazon credit you’ll get when you use the code XBOX at checkout.
3. New Apple Watch SE is cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
The newest Apple Watch hasn’t gone on sale at all since it released in September of this year. This is its first-ever price drop, so it’s a big deal.
4. Pajamas are cheaper than Black Friday at Kohl’s
Holiday PJs were $10 on Black Friday with an extra 15% off coupon. Cyber Monday brings us a lower sale price and a higher value coupon.
5. Roomba vacuums are cheaper than Black Friday at Target
Roomba vacuums reached 38-40% off during Black Friday. The Target Cyber Monday prices are better.
6. Board games are cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
I’ve been stalking Amazon’s site, waiting for the annual Buy 2, Get 1 free sale on games to return. It didn’t make it in time for Black Friday. Instead it went live Sunday (the day before Cyber Monday). And this deal, plus the Black Friday sale prices on games, makes the Cyber Monday sale that much better. I’m shopping this one.
7. Food storage & bakeware are cheaper than Black Friday at Macy’s
Macy’s Black Friday sales were good, especially on bedding, but these prices on bakeware beat anything we saw on Black Friday.
8. Yankee Candle is cheaper than Black Friday at Kohl’s
A select few Yankee Candle scents dropped to 50% off during Black Friday. Now, we’ve got the same price drop on a wider variety of fragrances, plus a 20% off coupon.
9. These vacuums are cheaper than Black Friday at Walmart
Theses particular vacuums didn’t go on sale during Black Friday, even though other Shark and Eureka models did. 40% off Shark and 60% off Eureka is about as high a discount as we see. Amazon has a better price on the cheaper, corded version of the same vacuum.
10. These toys are cheaper than Black Friday at Walmart
This Cyber Monday Play-Doh rainbow is the cheapest Play-Doh so far this year. The Magic Mixies hasn’t been discounted much, as it was an out of stock item during last year’s holiday season. And 6 Barbies for $25 is just $4.16 per doll, the cheapest price we’ve seen this year.
11. At Old Navy, everything’s 50% off, which is better than Black Friday
During Black Friday week, Old Navy dropped the price of a different item every day: PJ pants were $5, Women’s jeans were $12 and kids’ puffers were under $15. Cyber Monday’s sale is both better and worse. Everything in the store is 50%, which is a smaller discount than those one-day sales, but you get to choose anything you want. So, depending on what you’re shopping for, Cyber Monday is possibly the better sale compared to Black Friday.
12. Barbie Malibu house is cheaper than Black Friday at Walmart
If you’ve shopped for a Barbie dreamhouse this year, you may have run into shortages and inventory issues. Every sale has been short lived and resulted in an out of stock situation before the end of the day. We’re hoping this one lasts. It’s the best price on the Malibu dreamhouse so far this year.
13. Contigo Mugs are cheaper than Black Friday at Walgreens
Contigo mugs have been a product our team watches closely and we were surprised to not see any good Black Friday sales on Contigo. Until Sunday, when Walgreens announced this 50% off deal at Walgreens.com. These snapseal mugs sell for $12.99 each on Amazon. Two for $13.49 really is a screaming deal. These would make great teacher gifts.
14. Revlon hot air brush is in stock at Amazon for Cyber Monday
We saw this same sale price on Thanksgiving Day, but by Black Friday, it had gone out of stock. It’s back in time for Cyber Monday and we hope inventory lasts.
15. Shark Blow HyperAir Dryer is cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
On Black Friday, this swanky Shark blow-dryer (bundle only) was on sale for $184.99 and we thought that was a good price. Fast forward to Cyber Monday, and we’re seeing an even bigger price drop to $169.99. And the Shark HyperAir Fast-Drying Hair Dryer is now on sale for $149.
16. PowerXL Vortex Pro Air Fryer 8-qt is cheaper than Black Friday at Target
This 8-qt Air Fryer was $59.99 on Black Friday and today the sale price is the same, but there’s a 15% off coupon you can stack with the sale price savings. That means, you’ll save an extra $9.00 compared to Black Friday.
17. Flannel Pajama Pants are cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
To be fair, the best price anywhere on PJs was at Old Navy on Black Friday, where pants sold for only $5.00. But Amazon Essentials brand pants never went on sale. They held out for today’s Cyber Monday special where pants are selling for less than $8.00.
18. Flannel plaid shirts for women are cheaper than Black Friday at Kohl’s
Kohl’s had these regularly $30 flannels on sale for $10 with a 15% off coupon during Black Friday, but on Cyber Monday they’re $8.49 each.
19. Slippers are cheaper than Black Friday at Target
Slippers were $6.00 at Target on Black Friday. Cyber Monday prices are a dollar cheaper.
20. Hydro Flask is cheaper than Black Friday at Amazon
Amazon Black Friday Yeti sales stole the show and Hydro Flask continued to sell right around full price over the holiday weekend. Sunday night, their prices dropped to record lows on Amazon. Shop the entire Hydro Flask sale on Amazon.
21. Dewalt drills and bits are cheaper than Black Friday at Lowe’s
So, as it turns out, I don’t have any self-restraint, so here is a 21st bonus deal because I happen to love this Dewalt cordless drills. I bought mine years ago at the same price and have secretly wanted another for years. This year, Black Friday came and went without a single sale on Dewalt. So I was thrilled to see the predicted price drop finally appear on Sunday night, ahead of Cyber Monday.
KitchenAid Pro is cheaper than Black Friday at Target
This deal has come in and out of stock over the course of the morning. We’re leaving it here in the post in case it comes back, but as of 1pm ET, it is out of stock again.
This KitchenAid deal has the biggest relative price drop (compared to Black Friday) of any item on our list. This sale on KitchenAid Pro is so good, it even beats the $259 Black Friday price on Artisan, a machine that retails for $100 less. This is the best KitchenAid Pro price we’ve written about in years. It’s so hot, inventory already ran out once but as of this Monday morning update, it’s back in stock in two colors.
