This Black Friday 2021, the sales are unlike anything we’ve ever seen, because instead of starting on the Friday following Thanksgiving, they started as far back as October. Maybe it’s due to the supply-chain delays, or maybe it’s the fact that shoppers are starting to search for gift ideas earlier than ever this year—either way, we’re taking advantage of these early discounts.
What are some early Black Friday sales you should be shopping? Well, the better question is what are some early Black Friday sales you shouldn’t be shopping, because those are easier to track down than the former. See, practically every major retailer is hosting their holiday sales early this year. It all started when Amazon shocked the retail world with its months-long event that began in mid-October. Shortly after, a slew of other major stores followed suit, including Target, Ulta, and Nordstrom.
Whether you’re looking for discounts on furniture, celebrity approved accessories, or hot-button electronics, there’s a sale out there just for you. But, to save you the time of having to parse through a bunch of sites and the thousands of deals they’ve got going, we did the work for you.
We checked out all of our fave fashion, home, and electronic destinations and found the best early Black Friday deals available now. The discounts are so iconic, you’d be foolish not to take advantage of them. We’re talking 50% off Uggs, Dyson fans for $150 off, and AirPods at the lowest price of the year. When it comes to these savings, it’s best to trust your gut. Especially since the majority of these items are prone to selling out.
Below, check out six of the best early Black Friday sales that we could find.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Kay Jewelers is a STYLECASTER sponsor, however, all products in this article were independently selected by our editors. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
Starting Nov. 12 and running through Nov. 29, you can shop 25%-50% off everything on Kay Jewelers’ website, and up to 10% off. Right now, our hearts are set on this pair of vibrant hoop earrings that are subtle enough to wear on the daily, but add an ideal pop of color to any outfit.
Black Friday is now a few months long at Amazon, where you can shop electronics on sale for truly eye-catching prices. To find all the discounts available—they change daily—head over to the Epic Daily Deals hub, where you’ll be able to see all of the bargains in one spot. (These deals are only for Amazon Prime members, so if you don’t have a membership but still want the discounts, sign up for a free trial here.)
The one deal we can’t recommend enough is on a pair of AirPods Pro. They’re at the lowest cost they’ve been all year at $180 (usually they’re $249). This, along with Le Creuset’s Dutch $120 discount, have our attention.
More than 21,558 pieces of clothing, jewelry, and shoes are on sale now at Nordstrom. Here, you can easily spot designer footwear for half off. We’re checking out this pair of Marc Fisher lugged sole boots that are discounted for nearly $100 off. The platform style and colorblock design make it an edgy yet classy homerun.
Our Place just put practically every piece of their cult-favorite cookware on sale early for Black Friday, and you can shop favorites for up to $125 off. This sale is unlike any other we’ve seen from the brand. Usually, we get a single discounted pan in a select colorway to pick from, but this Black Friday sale includes the iconic Always pan on sale in all the beautiful colorways.
Perhaps one of the best deals is on a duo set including its famous Always Pan and Perfect Pot. Usually, the two would retail for over $300, but you can get them together now for $250. Another motivator: The Perfect Pot itself isn’t on sale for the holiday, so this is the only way to get a discount on the brand new piece of cookware.
Sephora’s Black Friday sale is one dreams are made of, so to help us navigate through all of the incredible discounts, we tapped a plastic surgeon to get her top picks. She said this lip plumper “moisturizes the lips with powerful ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamins A and E.”
The discounts you’ll get on this are all based on your shopper status at the store—if you’re a Rogue member, you get 20% off, a VIB, you get 15% off, and an Insider gets 10% off. (You can sign up to become any of these at the site). In addition, some Sephora-brans products are discounted, as well.
All discounts will be applied automatically at checkout, but the time you can start receiving them differs. If you’re a Rogue member, the sale starts Nov. 5, for VIBs, it begins Nov. 9, and Insiders it starts 11/11. No matter, the price drops run through Nov. 15, so you can take advantage of the savings until then.
Justin and Hailey Bieber’s go-to accessory spot has necklaces, rings, and bracelets on sale for up to 75% off. You’ll have no trouble finding vintage-looking garb here. The chunky jewelry is trendy, easy to style, and in this sale section, starts at $14.
Target’s Black Friday 2021 deals started Oct. 31 and are running through the very end of November. Obviously, there are going to be massive discounts on the actual day of Black Friday, Nov. 26, and Cyber Monday, Nov. 29, but there will be a bunch of early discounts happening prior that are more than worth taking advantage of—especially since experts are already predicting massive shipping delays.
Every day there will be discounts on different items, including furniture, tech, and accessories, so be sure to check in periodically for updates. Right now, you can shop 50% off kitchen appliances and electronics. One of the best sales we spotted is Ninja’s Foodi Power Blender & Processor System—its $40 off right now and comes with a pitcher, smoothie bowl maker, and a nutrient extractor cup.
