As the leaves change colors and the air turns chilly, bargain hunters across the country start thinking about one thing: What will the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals be this year?
Falling on the Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving — this year, that’s November 27 and November 30 — Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the days when retailers traditionally slash prices, offering their deepest discounts of the year on everything from flat screen TVs to anti-aging night serums, kitchen appliances, and more.
These sales are the perfect time to snap up pricey things you may have had your eye on, like vacuum cleaners, and less expensive items like shoes. Beauty products from Sephora are another great buy this time of year, when you can afford to try out some of the things you aren’t quite ready to pay full price for.
On this page, we’ll be tracking some of the best deals in several popular sale categories: kitchen, beauty, home, tech, and fitness. We’ll continue to update and add more products as the big weekend draws nearer, so bookmark it and check back often!
Keep watching for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals as they become available!

Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals for Your Kitchen
Why we like it:
- Lasts for years
- Beloved by professional pastry chefs
- Comes in a rainbow of colors
When it comes to stand mixers, there’s only one that professional and amateur bakers alike swear by: the KitchenAid. These machines are workhorses that can effortlessly beat any cake or cookie batter to featherlight fluffiness, knead bread or pizza dough, whip egg whites into perfect peaks, and any other task you put it to. The only problem? They’re pricey. If you can afford one, however, you’ll never regret it — and Black Friday sales are the best time to nab one at below the regular retail price.
“This stand mixer is built to last. I am excited to use it for many years to come. No better mixer for baking and cookies!”
Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals in Beauty
Why we like it:
- Melts makeup off without stripping skin of natural oils
- Safe to use on all skin types
- “Clean at Sephora” designation means it’s formulated without over 50 toxic ingredients, including sulfates, parabens, and phthalates
This cult favorite is gentle and safe to use on all types of skin, and quickly melts away eye makeup, foundation, and lipstick — even long-wearing and waterproof formulas. Infused with sunflower and ginger root oils, it never strips skin or leaves it feeling dry, and papaya enzymes help to naturally exfoliate pores. Turmeric and moringa extracts help fight the effects of pollution and remove stubborn sunscreen residue, leaving your skin clean and ready for the next step in your skincare routine.
“Die hard fan now! … I’m blown away … my skin has never looked better. It’s perfect for combination and aging skin, as I am 45! It doesn’t dry my face, but the makeup melts off!!! It’s wonderful!”
Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals for Your Home
Why we like it:
- Powerful motor and long-lasting charge
- Comes with 6 different attachments for every cleaning need
- Charging dock attaches to the wall for storage and easy access
This Dyson cordless vacuum is the one we use at home, and we couldn’t be happier. Sleek, lightweight, powerful, and versatile, its six attachments can reach anywhere and get any job done. (The stubborn dirt brush even got the cat hair clinging to our favorite armchair.) The charge lasts long enough to clean your whole house without worrying about recharging or dragging a cord around with you, and three different speeds let you tackle everyday dusting or handle deeper cleans.
“This vacuum has been worth every cent! The ease of use is incredible. Since I don’t have to worry about a plug, I vacuum more often! I have animals and the large bin size has really been great!”
Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals in Tech
Why we like it:
- Take calls and reply to texts from your wrist
- Track your workouts and sleep to stay healthy
- New lower-priced model
If you’ve been hesitating to pull the trigger on getting an Apple Watch, this could be the time. Apple has just come out with the new, more affordably-priced SE model, which has everything you need at less than $300 — and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, it’s bound to be even less. The display size is the same as the Apple Watch Series 6, so you won’t have to squint to see all the info it has for you, which is a lot! Track your fitness, your sleep, read and respond to texts, sync your favorite music and podcasts, and more. The GPS means you won’t get lost, and there’s even a feature that can detect if you’ve taken a tumble, and will call emergency services for you.
Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals in Fitness
Why we like it:
- Like having a personal trainer in your home
- Perfect home gym for the Covid-19 era
- Comes with all the equipment you need
Gyms may be slowly reopening after the initial Covid-19 shutdown, but if we’ve learned anything from the pandemic, it’s that having the ability to exercise from home is absolutely crucial to our physical and mental health.
