Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2014

Recommended Posts

It's getting to be that time again! Anyone else getting pumped for Black Friday shopping? Anything in particular you're looking for a good deal on? :) 

 

I don't see a whole lot of ads posted yet (just toys!) but I'd expect we'll start to see deals leaking within the next few weeks.

I'm hoping Sephora does their $10 deals again this year. And I hope Urban Decay can top their awesome lipstick set from last year!

After receiving Notoriously Morbid's preview shade for their Black Friday collection in my Halloween collection order, I'm looking forward to that one!  I'm on the hardcore indie side of things, so I'm not sure we'll even see many of the collections from those companies before the release day, but I'm expecting that I will want them all.  I'm planning on spending some quality time listing things on eBay the weekend of the 15th in preparation!  Ooh, and taking cds and dvds to the used cd/dvd store!  I need to get rid of them, and if I can get some quick cash for them, all the better!

 

(Next weekend, I'm hoping to wrap up the Room of Doom cleaning-wise.  I've made major progress this weekend, but an IKEA run is going to have to be involved before I can completely finish it.  :(  IKEA can give me panic shakes, but that's the only place that has the shelving I want.  Then the next weekend is the rest of my apartment, and -- fingers crossed -- this will mean no more major cleaning after Veterans' Day, just maintenance!)

Yeah!! Black friday deals :)  I'm hoping for Sephora's $10 deals and also hoping Ulta come's out with something similar.

And any good deals on Lorac Pro palette.

Over the years I've slowly transitioned from hitting up the malls on Black Friday to getting all my shopping done online. My kids haven't made their Christmas lists yet so not sure what I will be looking for for them (I think my older son wants an Ipod, so we'll see), Hubby wants a PS4 so... yeah. I am going to be watching Amazon/Best Buy/Everywhere that sells electronics for the best deal. Other places I shop:

 

Sephora

Disney Store

DC Shoes

Vans

Victoria's Secret

Bath & Body Works

 

Aaand anywhere that has good sales on things I want to give people. :D

I'm hoping to get clothes again on Black Friday - Old navy had a good deal going on last year so I stocked up on work out clothes and tights and yoga pants.

 

I looooved UD's lip set and I'm glad I had someone to split it with! This year I'm hoping Sephora does a $10 bottle of Purity as well!

What are all these $10 deals at Sephora everyone is speaking about. I wasn't really following them last year. And do they release all at once or one a day?

Really excited for Sephora this year since I have Rouge shipping (like it's hard to hit $50, but I don't have to if I don't want to). Ulta had good deals last year but I would need to see if it was worth a large order.

I'm with you on the clothes thing. I'm hoping Express does 50% off everything again this year because I need new jeans and I refuse to buy them at full price.

@ black friday is my time to shine in terms of picking up staples. i think GAP did 50% off jeans for a couple years in a row (but not the last few years, i believe) so that to me made me feel like i should only pay $35 for those $70 jeans regardless of the season. Marketing at its worse! Consumer behavior at its best!

All at once.  It's such a huge deal that they had to have a sort of waiting room last year on the website due to traffic.

 

And, ugh, three of my favorite indie companies have already announced that they're going to have special Black Friday things, and my favorite indie perfume company usually has special bonus goodies that weekend, too.  Not sales, but limited editions.  LEs are my weakness, especially if they're seasonal LEs.

One thing that I always keep in mind is that a lot of stores will have a lot of sales between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so if you don't get what you need on Black Friday/Cyber Monday you most likely be able to buy it at the same, or sometimes cheaper price later, especially as Christmas draws nigh. It's a total balancing act, of getting the price your want before the items are unavailable.

 

This mostly holds true for the retailers with the greatest markup, like Best Buy, and those who trick you into shopping on Black Friday, like Bath & Body Works (hey, I do it anyways, it is all good!)

 

So this is why I never ever ever camp out anywhere, and why I don't understand when people physically hurt each other to get at the "deals". :wacko:

I've been saving coupons like mad for BBW. I have 5x $10 off $30, and a couple free item w/purchase. Don't forget, it is the only day they will let you stack coupons!

 

ETA: They will also let you buy multiple VIP bags, as long as you meet the $ minimum for each one!

@@Shalott will you be able to stack online or only in-store?

 

Good question! I'm pretty sure it is only in-store, because I just don't think the website is cable of stacking coupons, but I don't know for sure! I do know that you can usually get the VIP bag early online, because you have to use a coupon code with that, so that way you are able to get the back bag, then use a discount on Black Friday, but I think it is just one per order. :(

 

However, I did complain about their shipping policies and I see they are now combining free shipping on $50+ with some coupons, so that is an improvement!

My plan is going to out both Thanksgiving and Black Friday and I might do Cyber Monday.

 

Thursday night

-Walmart

-Target (possibly)

Walmart has great 10$ series deals and 1$ movies.

Target had a christmas movie set with free cookies and milk I believe last year so I'm all about that.

 

Friday morning

-Walmart

-Target

-Bath & Body Works (possibly)

-Sephora (possibly)

 

I don't know if I want to go to Sephora or BBW on Black Friday because I know BBW won't have my favorite candle in stores they never do. The Pumpkin Cupcake, I got in my influenster box years ago. I haven't used up my mini because I don't have any backups. I need to buy like 6. Before they go away, which could be in the next two months.

I want two of the too faced palettes in Natural at night and Cat eyes.

 

So, I might just save those few things for my Cyber order.

@@Simplyalyssaa Pumpkin Cupcake is in stock now on the website, if not in store. It isn't 2/$22 but there is a $10 off $30 coupon floating around!

@Shalott yeah, I know  but I'm waiting until Cyber Monday. I figure, it'd probably be MUCH better. They had free shipping last year and it was cheap on the site. So, I'm waiting until then. Plus I'm broke. lol

Between doing the swaps I'm involved with and other stuff. It sucks because I want that

candle so bad. But it will be mine soon.

@@SaraP - @@Shalott is right, you can stack coupons in store only.

 

edit: at least that's how it has been the past few years. They haven't posted the coupon stacking rules for this year yet :)

Posting this from speculation in another thread. This may be a Sephora $10 black Friday grab I was able to accidentally order early.

 

 

Edited to actually upload photo. Lol

    • How it feels to be shopping too much after being on No Buy for a year It's been almost a month now of shopping too much after breaking my No Buy, and I've had a lot of feelings of sadness, guilt, and anxiety. I feel worse than ever about my shopping, because it's creating cognitive dissonance with the new habits I set up last year. I have noticed the following thoughts and feelings: Rip Van Winkle/ROMO Effect - I did not keep up with beauty boxes and promos through all of 2018. I was blissfully ignorant. When I began shopping again, I saw many things I missed during the year, and now have ROMO (Regret on Missing Out). For example, I became aware of all the Sephora Play! Smarts boxes from last year, and wanted to buy them from eBay! This is a little overwhelming! All the dazzling new things and exciting, new to me box programs like Boxyluxe and Ipsy upgrades are even more tempting as I have been away so long.  I feel selfish. When I'm shopping for myself, I feel I should be saving the money to help family members. I began to contribute and share more with family during my No Buy, and now I feel bad focusing so much on myself again. I complained to my cousin that I was sad that my New Years resolutions were a failure. In the middle of all my haul packages I had a little package from her with a Celtic charm in a little green bag and inspirational bookmarks. I felt bad, because she has it really rough. Her husband works for the government, so he has been out of work in this cruel winter. Here she is sending me a package. I should be doing for her and for my other family members instead of all this selfish hauling.  I'm scared of getting a lot of new stuff! This is new. For a year I had a system. Everything was organized just so. I knew how much I had of each thing. I was getting close to the end of using all my back stocks of skin and hair care. Now when I go to haul, I want to buy things, but then I feel bad because there won't be room for them in the storage I have set up, and it will take me that much longer to use everything. I did not feel this way before being on No Buy for a year.  I learned a little bit about what really works for me during the No Buy year. I did a whole year of painstaking experimentation with Mary Kay eye shadow sample cards, and learned that many colors don't work for me. When shopping resumed, I was ready to grab for anything with a pretty package again, but then I recalled that those shades do not work for me. When I see all the fabulous new things, and get new things in the mail, it makes the things I have look old and tired. When I was not shopping, I loved my things, and I would not dream of parting with them. But when I began seeing new things, I had an impulse to throw the old stuff out, which my No Buy self would be dead against.  I'm scared of going into more debt. I worked so hard to pay off debt through all of 2018, and I have been opening up new credit cards to shop. I keep telling myself I'll use them in a controlled way, but that never worked in the past. I'm scared and want them to hurry up and come in the mail so I can close them. I won't have peace of mind until I can get rid of them.  This whole mess up has left me feeling depressed. The bad feelings outweigh the fun, yet part of me still wants to buy. I want to try to do it in a controlled way. I'm hoping I'll be calming down since it's been almost a month now.  I guess these feeling of cognitive dissonance show that my No Buy was a success in that it set up good habits or new attitudes, but my No Buy self is fighting, fighting, with my old shopping self. 
    • I got another little Shop Miss A haul: Enamel Clover Stud Earrings in White - very beautiful Barielle nail treatment cream Nail Strengthener in a pen form with a brush at the end  Body oils - African Musk; Baby Powder; White Linen Type - these smell good, especially the African Musk.  Excellent buy for $6.00.  Two more Shop Miss A hauls on the way. 
    • I calmed down since I saw the new Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Collection. I was so excited when I first saw it, and wanted to get the complete collection box for $59.99! I ended up just ordering the Rose Multi-Use Oil for now. It's the item I wanted most - it's in a beautiful glass bottle and has actual rose petals floating inside the bottle. I love it! For $7.99, I think it's a great buy!  Next on my list would be the gorgeous black rose deign blush brush for $7.99. And maybe the toner for $7.99. I think I can be happy with just those three items. I narrowed it down, but man I am in love with this line! Wet and Wild says this collection marks a new direction of them beginning to get into skin care. I am excited for that, because if this is a sign of things to come, we will be able to have beautiful packaging and ingredients at a great price. 
    • I resubscribed to Birchbox yesterday! I am excited about it again. They just came out with March sample choice. It's looking good. March box: Cream, pink, and navy floral - I really like it. Sample Choice: The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream  thisworks deep sleep pillow spray  amika Reset Pink Charcoal Cleansing Oil (my favorite) - a pre shampoo treatment Curated Box:  Benefit BADGal BANG! mascara Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse Luxie Beauty 213 Eye Shading Rose Gold Brush - I keep getting this from Ipsy and now it has followed me to Birchbox, lol ModelCo Metallic Eye Shadow Trio  My Clarins RE-CHARGE Relaxing Sleep Mask - My Clarins is new to me. Apparently it's a new range for younger skins.  Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil - oil to milk formula, evening primrose oil, glamorous midnight blue bottle - love it.  I am jealous of: Birchbox Spain has a great Game of Thrones edition Birchbox currently. The box is really pretty, and they have a better card  - it is like a greeting card that is folded in two, has a photo of an eye look, and a sneak peek of next month on the back. Then, the customer got a coupon for two free months of HBO. The unboxing video I saw had a good sized tube of Whish Vanilla Lip Scrub and a huge hand cream.  
    • I recommend Ulta Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette, $20.00 with free gift (Ulta.com) Shades include: Champagne: light golden tan shimmer Pink: light pink shimmer Hopeless Romantic: medium mauve with silver shimmer Chandelier: medium brown with golden shimmer Luxe: deep reddish brown with pink shimmer Dahlia: deep plum with pink glitter Prosecco: light cream matte Bubbles: light pink matte Breathless: medium mauve matte Dessert: deep cool brown matte Sweetheart: deep rich reddish brown matte Orchid: deep violet matte   Hope that helps, you are a nice husband.
