Black Friday finally arrived — even if it felt like it had been going on for weeks already.
Between sales starting days early and stretching past Cyber Monday into an entire Cyber Week (*shudder*), the deluge of sales feels a bit excessive or at least over-hyped. Considering we now have the wonder that is online shopping and it seems like everything’s on sale the other 51 weeks of the year, Black Friday is hardly the only day to score good deals.
Which is why we’ve scoured the internet (and, sure, some brick-and-morter stores too) for the sales that are actually good — you know, more than a measly 15% off or free shipping. We’ve called out the best discounts by category, if you’re specifically looking for new jeans, shoes, or a bag; we’ve rifled through the (digital) racks at your favorites like H&M and Sephora to find the products worth buying; and we’re also on Twitter on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, ready to answer all your shopping needs with the hashtag #AskRacked.
Keep checking back here for the best deals. Happy shopping!
