It’s that time of year again… Black Friday time! Check out the best Black Friday deals of 2022 at Amazon, Target, and more!
I update this post every year for Black Friday and feel like it really helps my mental load to be able to ENJOY my trip over Thanksgiving while also being able to share all the epic deals to be had so it’s become a yearly tradition!
Most Black Friday deals start well before Black Friday and many items may sell out or go in and out of stock. Prices my fluctuate as well!
I will be adding to this post throughout the week, particularly on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday as well.
I highly recommend bookmarking this post and coming back to check in for updates!
I learned during Amazon Prime Day that it was easiest to update the blog post with links more-so than try to share them all on Instagram. Deals happen too fast for how slow IG is 😉 So I recommend checking in here most often but also be sure to check in on Instagram (in my Stories) and possibly as well as on my Facebook Page where I will also have a post dedicated to sharing the deals as they come in!
I personally loathe Walmart’s website. It’s not user friendly at all! So I will mostly be sticking with Amazon and Target as I am a fan of both sites. However, do scroll all the way down as I will probably add additional merchants as I find the deals!
If you have a Target Redcard don’t forget that it saves you an additional 5% off. Often that can make the item cheaper than Amazon even when both sites show the item for the same price.
Pro Tips for Black Friday Shopping
My biggest tip for Black Friday Shopping is: BUY NOW, RETURN LATER.
I keep a spreadsheet going of how much I’ve paid for every gift I buy and I am constantly checking for a better price to come along.
Most stores have an extended return policy over the holiday season so if I find a better price on an item, I simply return the first one. No biggie!
Often deals go quickly and I’d rather deal with the hassle of returning than deal with the regret of not getting something when I had the chance.
Also if it’s a “hot item” this year it can become hard to find. Things can sell out or go out of stock and then you’re dealing with the dang eBay scalpers looking to charge a fortune.
So my motto is: Buy Now, Return Later
