Black Friday Haul 2013

Ok, call me crazy, but I love Black Friday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those nutters in line at the actual store. I’m the nut that has deal alerts on the things I already want, and am waiting for sales to actually go live on the internetz. And guess what? Many of them already are! I started my Black Friday shopping Monday night.

So, here’s a round up of what I’ve bought so far, and what I’m planning on getting. I’ll update it as the sales progress.

For Me:



Top $17 / Necklace $13 / Sweater $26 / Earrings $9

50% off many items. It helps to filter things by your size before diving in, there’s a lot of stuff! Spend $50 for free shipping and use code THANKS15 for an extra 15% off.



Sweater $19 / Sweater $19 / Cardigan $19 

Today’s daily deal is sweaters for $19 + under. I stocked up on a few, I love these for crisp days. Free shipping at $50, use code GAPLOVE for 20% off if you’re buying other items. (Code not valid on the daily deal, boo.)

Old Navy

Waiting for this one to start, but am hoping to score this parka and some Rockstar Skinnies for a good price. (Supposedly 50% off, but that’s not really their *best* deal. We shall see.)

Online sale was lame – “up to 50% off”. Pass.



I’m not a big fan of Express tbh, but they did have these great red tights that I bought for my holiday outfit. The wine colored tights are also fab. Entire site is 50% off, free shipping at $125.


Lots of deals here in women’s fashion. I really like the LC Lauren Conrad line. Use code MISTLETOE for 15% off.



Top $7 / Jacket $48 / Sweater $32 / Sweater $26 / Headband $5 / Scarf $12

Honestly I haven’t shopped here since I was in high school but they’ve upped their game and have some cute sweaters and cold weather gear. Entire site is 60% off or more. Code THANKS25 gives you a $25 eGift code for your next purchase when you spend $100. Free shipping at $75.



Top $12 / Jeans $32 / Jacket $24  / Jeans $24

Cute stuff on sale in the juniors section. I’m stocking up on basics. No code necessary, price as marked. Free shipping on any purchase.

Barnes and Noble


The Beatles: BBC The Archives for $21 (reg $60) for my dad for Christmas

This isn’t live yet, but I’m going to be getting my next book club book + a book for our secret santa exchange next month. I ended up going in store and used the printed coupon available here. Use code BFRIDAY30 for 30% off one item, beginning 12:01 EST 11/28. Free shipping at $25.



Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, Pure Maracuja Oil, + Smooth Operator Powder $10 (Value $94) / Boscia Charcoal Mask + Pore Strips (Value $49) / Tokyomilk Dark Tainted Love Lotion + Rollerball Duo $10 (Value $16) / Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser $10 (value $22)

This is the sale I am most looking forward to. Beauty deals for $10? Sold. Free shipping when you spend $50, and use code FREEKIT for their special holiday quick-fix kit when you spend $25. This sale starts on Black Friday, traditionally 12:01 EST on 11/29.

Note: Philosophy’s Purity cleanser never went live, but several other unadvertised deals did. Many still available here.

For Dave:



Zelda Limited Edition 3DS XL ($149)

Shhh, it’s a surprise. :) I have yet to locate this at Target anywhere in the Seattle area. So disappointed, we tried 2 last night at 8pm (which I really did NOT want to do, but sucked it up) and 2 this morning. I’m crossing my fingers its part of Cyber Monday, but just in case I’m preparing myself to pay full price.



Black Holden Sueded Men’s Brogues $109

Take 15% off with code TOMS15NOV. Expired deal, use code THANKFUL13 for $10 off $50+. Free shipping on all purchases.


Adam. Levine. Collection. That is all. I am hoping it goes on sale… Nope, all regular price online. Boo.



A million flannels for $9.99. Use code MISTLETOE for 15% off.


Three cardigans for 50% off. I wasn’t a big fan of their button ups this year. No code needed, entire site is 50% off. Spend $125 for free shipping.

For the home:


There are some really slamming  deals on food processors and stand mixers, if you are in the market. I’d suggest checking out hip2save’s post here about stand mixers.

For the Pup:

Phew! This list is only going to keep growing… My credit card will be crying by the end of the weekend, I’m sure!
