Black Friday, Cyber Monday- Are You Lost Yet? Finding Great Bargains + Sales without STRESS! Electronics + Tech !

The “Best of Black Friday and Cyber Monday” is really what this post is about. I looked at the overwhelming amount of specific brands and stores that were sent to me. While it’s interesting to look at what’s on sale, there are other sites who do a phenomenal job at creating that large list that you might want to see.
I can share where you can find those huge lists- but what I find important is to share those brands and products that I know are things that I know “work” for you and me! I will be updating on the specific sales I am including in my list. As I get photos and confirmation of the sale, I will add to the list and include more categories like fitness gear on sale, food, tools and stuff like that. This is not just about fashion or beauty, it’s going to be broader than that.

Black Friday-Cyber Monday Sales:

Black Friday/Cyber Monday: 20 percent off all orders with code ARMANI20. (Use this NOW!)

Also another great site to check out an even more comprehensive list of sales (department stores, specialty stores and independent stores) is
Nouveau Cheap blog.
All the sales are there in alphabetical order. If you find something in BOLD, then it’s just been updated or added with new information. Pay attention to the ones in bold. I would suggest sifting through this list ASAP and get your list going. If you have accounts or can set up a wish list for your favorite online stores, then do so!

Nordstrom Designer Sale Starts NOW Save up to 40%


Nordstrom Designer Sale Starts NOW Save up to 40% By Mary Hall | November 23, 2016SHARE TWEET SHARE SHARE 0 COMMENTS
The Nordstrom Designer Clearance sale has begun the day before Thanksgiving and pre-Black Friday. If you love fashion, put this sale on your list and start looking through your favorite items on the Nordstrom website now. I make a wish list before the sale, and then the minute the sale starts, I log-in to my account on to see if prices on my favorites have dropped.

The sale features ALTUZARRA, Alexander McQueen, Armani, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Christopher Kane, Nordstrom Signature and Caroline ISSA, MAX MARA, Herve Leger, Burberry Prorsum and Valentino. Shoes on the sale include Valentino heels, Jimmy Choos and Prada. Accessories on the sale include Gucci Sunglasses (think Jackie O) and Saint Laurent Handbags. The best deal on the sale for luxury gift-giving that’s easy on the wallet is the Givenchy earrings.

Toshiba 49″ 4K LED UHD Smart TV for $199.99 at Best Buy

Available in-store only, this deal is under our predicted doorbuster price for a 50″-class 4K TV. In fact, it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for a 49″ 4K TV.

Polaroid 32″ 720p LED HDTV for $85 at Target

We predicted that doorbuster deals for TVs this size would drop to as low as $100, but this deal beats that handily. We haven’t seen any deals for this particular model, but we did see a smaller Polaroid set earlier this year with similar specs for $123, so this larger model is clearly a steal.



Acer Chromebook 1080p IPS 14″ Laptop Bundle for $65 off at Costco

We predicted that Chromebooks would drop to as low as $95, and while this particular one isn’t that low, it’s still the best deal we’ve seen for this model. This particular Chromebook has only dropped as low as $269 at other retailers, and those deals didn’t include anything bundled with it. We’re expecting this deal, which is bundled with an Acer wireless mouse, to be around $230. It’s available online only.

HP 15-ay195nr 2.5GHz 15.6″ Laptop for $329.99 at Office Depot

We expected prices on i5 machines to drop to $300, but for configurations with only 4GB RAM and 500GB hard drives. This laptop has twice the RAM and double the capacity for just slightly more, and with Intel’s new Kaby Lake processor to boot.

HP 15-ay068nr 2.5GHz 15.6″ Laptop with Microsoft Office 365 for $430 at BJ’s Wholesale Club

We predicted that we’d see i7 Skylake laptops drop in price to $449. This deal beats that price and not only comes with Microsoft Office 365, but 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive, which is double the memory and capacity of our predictions.

Kenmore 24″ Dishwasher for $199.99 Sears

This dishwasher is half-off and designated as a “hot buy.” Over the past two years, we’ve only seen a Kenmore this size hit about $200 twice. Otherwise, you’ll pay at least $65 to $100 more, at least.


KitchenAid KV25 5-Qt. Stand Mixer with $50 in Shop Your Way Reward Points for $199.99 Sears

At a net price of $150 when you factor in the credit, this is the lowest price we’ve seen for a 5-quart KitchenAid Mixer.

iPhone 7 + $250 Gift Card for $0 down at Target

The only similar kind of offer we’ve seen for the newest iPhone was back when it was first released — customers could score a free iPhone 7 when they traded in their old iPhone. This deal isn’t quite as awesome, but it’s still pretty solid.

iPad Pro 9.7″ Tablet from $449 at Target

We fully expected to see the base model of this iPad Pro receive a $50 discount at most. This deal exceeds those expectations. We’ve seen the base model go for as little as $400 on one occasion, but that was only for students. This the best price we’ve seen with no strings attached.

iPad mini 2 32GB WiFi Tablet for $199 at Walmart

While Target will have the iPad Mini 2 starting around $199, Walmart is offering a better bang for your buck. The lowest we’ve seen a 32GB new Mini 2 fall to is $219.

iPad Air 2 Tablets for $125 off at Best Buy

Based on the regular prices listed in the ad, these models should theoretically start at around $274. Since you can snag it for the same price at Target, and both stores will have it online, it comes down to which store you want to shop more.



C|Net also has scored some scoop on great deals that I haven’t seen featured anywhere else. Here are the best ones from their list (and there’s a lot more>. This list was curated and written by Dave Carnoy.

Amazon HD 8 tablet for $60 (normally $90): If you’re in the market for a kid tablet, this is an excellent deal for a tablet we already thought was a good deal at $90. Both Amazon and Best Buy has this as a Black Friday deal.

LG B6 OLED 4K TV (model OLEDB6P):

Through Cyber Monday, November 28, the 55-inch LG B6 OLED TV is on sale for $1,799.99, and the 65-inch model is on sale for just $2,799.99 in Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers. Those are the lowest prices of the year for LG OLED 4K TVs.

Roku Streaming Stick 2016:

This was a good deal at $50. Right now it’s $35 at Amazon and other retailers.

Lenovo Yoga 900 (Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD):

Lenovo’s Yoga 900 is defined by its slim watchband-style hinge, which allows the Yoga to be used as a laptop or flipped into a tablet mode. It’s one of our favorite convertibles, and Best Buy has it for just $699.99 (it’s usually $1,199.99) on Black Friday. It comes with a 256GB SSD for storage, an Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of memory. This deal will most likely will be gone quickly.
