True fact: air is easier to clean up than grease. Unless you love emptying massive vats of oil, air fryers are the way to go. If you don’t have an air fryer yet, I am going to tell you all of the great deals so you can eat some easy, delicious meals. And of course, save a few bucks, too. With these money-saving tips, you’ll be able to make your air fryer dreams a reality, even with some options under $50!

I’ve seen air fryers on sale throughout the year, but the best deals are during Black Friday. All the retailers are battling against each other for your business, so take advantage of this.

Be sure to download the KCL app and set your notifications to “air fryer” so you don’t miss a deal.

 

1. Figure out what size and kind of air fryer you need.

Determining a reasonable price for an air fryer isn’t as simple as saying “buy it at $25.” They come in many different sizes, features, and capabilities. The first thing I want you to do is think of which features you MUST have. For me, it was being able to use my air fryer for more than just “air fry.”

Once you figure out the features you want, then you can narrow down the sizes. Air Fryers come in as small as 1 quart and as big as 10 quarts. Typically, an air fryer under 4 quarts is good for small meals or apps or for two to four people; 5 – 7 quarts for family cooking; and 8+ quarts for big meals.

Since there are so many different features within different models, I use sizes to estimate the best price range.

  • Under 4 quart — As low as $19.99 but anything under $29.99
  • 5 – 7 quarts — As low as $35 but anything under $50
  • 8+ quarts — As low as $49 but anything under $65

 

2. Save big with a Black Friday air fryer deal.

In 2020, there were over 40 air fryer sales during Black Friday; some went as low as $19 and as high as $130.

The hot air fryer to buy last year was the Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Air Fryer at Target for just $94 (reg. $169.99).

Now if you didn’t need something that fancy, Macy’s, during their Black Friday sale, offered the Bella 2-Quart Air Fryer for only $19.99 (reg. $51.99). I’m expecting Target, Kohls, Macy’s, JCPenney, and Best Buy to bring the heat with their air fryer deals again this year.

3. Score an air fryer at Best Buy with the Deal of the Day.

Best Buy offers a “Deal of the Day” with big deals up to 75% off. Just this past October 2021, they had a Chefman TurboFry 3.7-quart Analog air fryer for $29.99 (reg. $79.99). You have to move quickly if you want to score a Deal of the Day, as quantities are limited. Once they’re sold out — they’re gone.

 

4. Use a 20% off Bed Bath & Beyond coupon with clearance air fryers for bigger savings.

If you didn’t already know, the golden rule of shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond is to always use their 20% off coupon. But, many times when I go to use the coupon, I see that their prices are too high anyway, and even with it, BB&B doesn’t come close to the competition’s prices. Pass.

But, occasionally, I pair the coupon with a sale item and it works. During the second week of October 2021, they had a flash sale:

 

 

5. Favorite “air fryer deals” in the KCL app and set notifications, so you don’t miss out.

We’ll send the deals to your phone however you want them if you “favorite” air fryers and set notifications in the KCL app.

You can also sign up for KCL emails and watch our Air Fryer Deals page to keep up on current deals. We promise you’ll get the brand you want at an unbeatable price.

 

6. Buy your air fryer at Kohl’s when you can triple save.

Kohl’s is one of the best places to buy an air fryer, because you can stack a sale price, percentage-off or dollar-off coupon, and a Kohl’s Cash promotion. Plus, there are great deals year-round, so you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to get a great price.

Kohl’s often has air fryers on sale and on clearance. They just had this great deal on the Ninja Foodi 2-Basket Air Fryer:

Buy 1 Ninja Foodi 6-in-1 2-Basket Air Fryer with DualZone Technology (reg. $219.99) $159.99, sale price
Use unique code for 15% off
Free shipping on orders of $75+ or free store pickup
Pay $135.99, get $5 Kohl’s Rewards and $20 Kohl’s Cash
Final Price: $110.99

 

7. Watch for a $19 Bella Black Friday air fryer sale at Macy’s.

Macy’s has some great Bella air fryer sales. Throughout 2021 they had multiple Deal of the Day ads that featured the 2-qt Bella Air Fryer (usually $51.99) for just $25.99. That’s 51% off!

But, during Black Friday 2020, the same Bella Air Fryer was only $19.99. Enough said.

 

8. Spend under $30 for a 2-quart air fryer.

If you are just cooking for yourself and another person, a 2-quart air fryer will be perfect for you. We regularly see small air fryer sales priced at under $40 at Target, Best Buy, and Kohl’s. But the best price is under $30.

Check out this recent deal at Target:

Buy 1 Chefman 2.1-Quart Analog Air Fryer (reg. $49.99) $29.99, sale price
Use RedCard for 5% off
Use RedCard for free shipping or free shipping on orders of $35+
Or free store pickup or “Drive Up”
Final Price: $28.49

 

9. Before buying a Target air fryer, scan the barcode with the Target and Amazon apps.

You might see a great price on a Target air fryer, but before you pull the trigger, scan the barcode with the Target app to see if there’s a Circle deal or coupon to stack on the sale.

Also, scan the barcode with the Amazon app. If the exact air fryer model is cheaper on Amazon, show your phone at the register and the cashier will happily give you the lower price.
