Black Friday is like the Super Bowl of shopping, but it’s not the only great time to find stellar savings. In fact, there are even a few holiday shopping days between Black Friday and Christmas worth paying attention to — and even more sales on your favorite brands and products into the new year.
Here are the next-best days to shop after Black Friday for some impressive sales. (Psst…download the free KCL app to catch the best deals all year long.)
1. Free Shipping Day on December 14
The complete list of retailers offering free shipping can be found here on this list of participating stores. Here are the stores offering free shipping that we’re most excited about:
- Wayfair: Free shipping on everything, plus they’re offering up to 70% off during their December Deals sale.
- Walmart: Free shipping for Walmart+ members or on orders over $35.
- Target: Always free with RedCard or on orders of $35+.
- Sephora: Free shipping with code FREESHIP.
- Staples: Free delivery with Base+ free trial.
2. Christmas Clearance Sales through January
This is the day to stock up for next year’s Christmas decorations.
The Day After Christmas Sales will have great price cuts on all the leftover Christmas decorations and accessories — usually up to 50% off right after Christmas, then up to 90% off in the following weeks through January.
It’s not just for seasonal decor, though — you’ll also be able to find steep discounts on winter apparel, clothes, and video games.
Here are all the details on what to buy on after-Christmas clearance.
3. White Sales in January
There’s a tradition older than Black Friday and it’s called The White Sale. No, really — it dates all the way back to 1878.
JCPenney offers up to 70% savings on bedding during their White Sale in January. JCPenney’s Black Friday sales come close, but there’s a pretty narrow selection.
You don’t have to wait until January, though; shop great bedding deals now.
4. Super Bowl TV Sales in January
If you’re looking for a new TV, I would skip Black Friday altogether and wait another few weeks for better sales surrounding the big game.
Black Friday sales usually involve off-brand, Black Friday-only TVs, whereas Super Bowl sales feature higher-quality name brands.
Shop TV deals available now.
5. Presidents’ Day Sales in February
Retailers like to take advantage of people’s extra day off work and get them shopping with their sales.
In the past Bed Bath & Beyond has offered up to 60% off goose down pillows and $300 rebates on select mattresses. Macy’s has taken 15% more off your purchase and had 60-75% off men’s business clothes in previous years.
6. Memorial Day Sales in May
Memorial Day is a great weekend to find low-priced home appliances like refrigerators, stoves, and more.
Places like The Home Depot have offered 50% off select items during this sale weekend, and Lowe’s offered around 30% off large appliances.
7. Father’s Day Sales in June
This is a great time to buy hardware and outdoor gear.
Cabela’s has offered up to 50% off fishing equipment, outerwear, grills, and more while Ace Hardware has had sales on tools like $150 off a DeWalt 20-volt max four-piece cordless combo kit during their Father’s Day sales.
8. Prime Day Sales in June
Prime Day normally happens during the summer — either in June or July. Prime Day 2021 happened June 21 – 22.
Expect free shipping from third parties who normally make you pay, along with discounts galore on Amazon products like Fire Tablets, Echo devices, and smart TVs with Fire TV built in.
But that’s not all. Retailers like Walmart, Kohl’s, and Target want your attention too, which means you’ll see deals across the board. Some might call these summer sales Black Friday in July, and for good reason. Stores will compete to have the best deals — always a good thing if you’re krazy about saving.
