OK, Black Friday is still a bit of a ways off, but that doesn't mean you couldn't benefit from a little pre-shopping strategizing in advance. Going into the biggest shopping day of the year without a plan isn't just inefficient — it's downright crazy. There are so many opportunities to score big: everything from wedding accessories to honeymoon outfits to home goods for your new nest. If you want to get the most out of your Black Friday experience (clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty products...you get the picture) you should start taking notes — like, right now. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving (Turkey Day is Nov. 22 this year), but several shrewd brands have started offering discounts in the days leading up to the main event. Last year, many retailers rolled out discounts and promo codes at least two days early and several had reductions ready the week prior. That means you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for deals before Thanksgiving even arrives. Here's who served up serious discounts last year and who we're looking to score from again this time around. Don't forget to check back here for updates in the coming weeks.
When it comes to offering up major deals on Cyber Monday, Amazon is pretty much the site to beat. Last year, many of the sales started rolling in right after Black Friday, continued through Cyber Monday and included serious savings — we're talking smart LED TVs for half off, up to 60% off Sam Edelman shoes and 30% to 50% off clothing and handbags for Prime Members. The Amazon Cyber Monday deals promise to be just as good this time around. While the sale specifics haven't been released yet, we've already started our 2018 shopping wish list. Whether you're looking to score electronics for your home or nab a chic handbag for less, you'll find something (or a few somethings) here that you'll want to add to yours. Check them out ahead and be sure to check back here for more Cyber Monday deals.
Once you've found your dream wedding dress, the search is on to find the perfect shapewear to go underneath it. We're not just talking about undergarments that suck you in, either — bridal shapewear is so much more than that. Wedding dresses come in all sorts of fabrics and colors (white being the most popular, of course) that show every dimple and crease, so a supportive foundation garment is key. Whether you're rocking a wedding dress with a plunging neckline, a low-back number or a strapless ball gown, Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales present the perfect opportunity to scoop up bridshapewear on the cheap. Not sure what type of smoother or shaper works best with your wedding dress? Ahead, check out our handy bridal shapewear cheat sheet, where you'll find all the bodysuits, slips, bras and bustiers you should be watching on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Whether you're already living with your spouse, newly married and merging homes for the first time, or looking for the perfect wedding gift for the happy couple in your life, Macy's is your ultimate one-stop shop — especially during the Macy's Black Friday sale, which has officially kicked off. This year, Macy's Black Friday deals include 20% off with promo code BLKFRI (and an extra 15% off in select departments), doorbuster deals up to 65% off, $10 off purchases of $25 or more in select departments with promo code BLKFRI25, and free shipping at $49 (some exclusions apply). The store's epic home department boasts an extensive inventory ready to outfit any abode from top to bottom — literally — so now is definitely the time to score. Because whose living space couldn't use a little refresh?
