Black Friday isn’t what it used to be. More people are shopping earlier and spending more money online. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t attractive incentives to lure customers. Below are our top picks for what is known as the ‘biggest shopping day of the year.’ Rest assured, the deals are almost identical if you are shopping online.
Designer discounts are an extra 20% off through Sunday. We found lots of samples that you don’t often find reduced. These Hunter rain boots are $80 from $150 and Stuart Weitzman ankle booties are $350 from $600. Most items from the ‘cutting edge‘ designers are not discounted, yet, but there are a few standouts. This lace Adam Lippes dress is $800 from nearly $1700 and this Comme des Garçons sweater is $277 from $460.
For a limited time, you can save an extra 33% off select items for a total savings of up to 60% off. A Nanette Lepore print blouse is $140 from $350, Alice & Olivia leather leggings are $370 from $950 and Current Elliott jeans are $83 from $208. As an added incentive you can save an extra $50 off non-sale items over $200 with the code THANKFUL. The best part is that this discount code can be applied to fragrance and beauty items.
Saks Fifth Avenue
Prices for the shopping extravaganza will be reduced up to 60% off if you can get to the store or log in before noon on Friday. An Alice & Olivia print dress is $118 from $300 and Frame high waist jeans are just $66 from $250. Just a warning, the early Saks crowd can be overwhelming. This is one of these days where shopping online can avoid lots of aggravation.
