Got AirPods?

I’ve pretty much given up on stalking various items I think will be “hot holiday purchases,” because either you can’t find them anywhere or the deals are sort of meh. But this one jumped out at me because it’s the lowest price I’ve seen: Today Best Buy has the latest version (true wireless) Apple AirPods available for just $100.

The catch is that you have to order them to your local store for pickup, but they do curbside. Not as convenient as having them shipped, for sure, but maybe worth it if these are on your shopping list. That’s a good $30 under anything else I’ve seen. As a bonus, they’ll also take $10 off your AppleCare purchase if you opt for that.

I haven’t made the leap to AirPods because I fear I’ll lose one and hate myself forever, but chances are you’re not as ridiculous as I am.

Half off makeup? Don’t mind if I do

Full disclosure: I have never before purchased from Laura Geller Beauty, so I cannot tell you if their products live up to the hype or not. What I can tell you is that ads for their Baked Balance-n-Brighten Foundation follow me all over the Internet, and as someone who isn’t big on makeup but whose aging skin needs a little… assistance… I’ve been considering it. Today I finally pulled the trigger, because coupon code CM50 takes 50% off your order, and they offer free shipping on $25+, and orders of $50+ get a free 3-piece gift set.

(I am never going to wear foundation every single day, but a color-correcting powder version I can smooth on in a few seconds? Maybe! I’m hoping I love it. If I don’t, they do returns/refunds with no questions asked.)

But wait, there’s more! Just about everything is up to half off over at Sephora, too, and you can get free shipping on any order with coupon code—wait for it—FREESHIP.

Are you younger and/or hipper than me? There’s also over 200 deals today at Ulta, many of which are half off. Free shipping on $35+ orders.

Sock it to everyone

I know I should be more excited about Cyber Monday, but mostly I am sleepy and a little sick of eating turkey. I think I may be getting old.

I couldn’t skip this deal, though—today Target has all of their 15 Days of Socks Advent Calendars marked down to just $10.50 each, and while I’m not positive this is true, it sure looks like they have the largest variety of ’em this year that they’ve ever had. Choose from a ton of different themes and options for men, women, kids, everyone. Everything seems to be in stock, too.

You’ll get free shipping on your $35+ order, or you can order to your local store for pickup. And yes, they have lots of other deals, but you know how I am about socks.

Today, shop for you

Yesterday was probably all about knocking out some holiday gifts. If you’re like me, today you realized you need a few things you forgot to look for because you were so busy focusing on everyone else. Not to worry! Need to freshen up that underwear drawer? Aerie’s 10 for $35 panties deal is back, and while the price on their deal has crept up a bit over the years, 1) there’s free shipping on every order and 2) it’s pretty hard to argue with just $3.50/pair for quality undies.

I shop this deal every time it comes around, because the Aerie boybriefs are my favorite. Just remember (if you’re new to them) that their sizing is for juniors, so us, ahem, mature ladyfolk will want to go up a size.

Everything else on their site is on sale, too. Happy shopping!

I’m leaving them for you

Listen, I will not be ordering 5 pounds of the best gummy bears on the planet (oh, sorry, they call them “gummi bears” because they’re fancy). I won’t even order them today when they’re just under $10 after you clip the available $2 coupon, and even cheaper with Subscribe & Save. Just because 5 pounds of delicious gummy bears would only cost me $8.29, shipped to my door, does not mean I have to buy them.

Just because they’re a great deal and 12 different flavors doesn’t mean I need 5 pounds of gummy bears. I mean, yes, I would buy them “for the kids,” but we all know that means I would end up eating them, and I do not need 5 pounds of gummy bears.

But, uh, maybe you do? Maybe you have the self control I lack?

Score deals on the fun clothes

If you’re looking less for clothing staples and more for clothing whimsy, today would be a good day to shop at three of my favorites.

ModCloth is taking 30% regular prices and an additional 40% off sale items, no coupon needed.

Svaha is letting you take 45% off nearly site-wide (there are some exclusions) with coupon code BLACKFRIDAY.

And Threadless is offering $10 tees, while many of their other items are half off. (In addition, if you sign up for emails, they’ll give you a coupon good for 25% off!)

Do I need anything from any of these stores? Maybe not. But do I want approximately one of everything? Yeah, I definitely do.

Black Friday at your favorite family of stores

Today’s the day to score huge discounts at the GAP family of stores! You’ll get free shipping on your $50+ order (mix and match between stores; they share a basket), or you can order to pick up either in-store or curbside locally.

At GAP, Old Navy, and Banana Republic, everything is 50% off, automatically. Use coupon code GAPFRIDAY for an extra 10% on top of that at Gap, and if you open a credit card at Old Navy you’ll get an extra 20% off your purchase. You’ll only save 20% at Athleta, but they almost never have sales, plus that 20% comes off of even sale items.

All the usual suspects are on sale, too—jammies and hats and such at Old Navy, etc. Scoop up the deals before they’re gone!

I thought I was kidding about the wipes

Listen, you probably don’t want to put them under the Christmas tree, but I won’t judge if you do. Amazon has their Solimo brand disinfecting wipes 3-pack available for order, though they won’t be in stock until next month. Get 3 75-count canisters for $9, or less if you order via Subscribe & Save.

This is the first time I’ve seen wipes in the wild since the pandemic started. It’s a Black Friday miracle!

If you’re ready to hop on the Apple Watch bandwagon…

… but can’t quite stomach the price, consider going with an earlier model instead of the latest/greatest. Today both Target and Amazon have the Apple Watch Series 3 marked down to just $120 for the 38mm or $150 for the 42mm.

Obviously many of the features available in later versions aren’t present here, but this is the cheapest I’ve seen any Apple Watch pretty much… ever. Deals are good today only.

Get kitchen electrics, robot vacuums, etc.

Your best bet today if you’re in the market for an Instant Pot, air fryer, or one of those freaky little robot vacuums is probably going to be one of the department stores doing Doorbusters. Check Macy’s or Kohls, first. The former is offering free shipping on your $25+ order; while the latter requires you get up to $75+ for free shipping, you’ll get $15 in Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, plus you’ll get an extra 15% off everything with coupon code THANKS. Both allow you to order for pickup at your local store, too.

There’s other deals to be had, of course. Those are just some of the things I know folks have been wanting. I, personally, kind of want an air fryer, but I think if I bring another kitchen electric into this house, my family is going to hold an intervention.
