Hottest Black Friday Deals (So Far)

Some stores, like Walmart, Kohl’s and Macy’s, have already released their Black Friday ads. There are some great deals to snag this year and here are some of Casey’s favorites.

Instant Pot Deals at Kohl’s

Kohl’s has the Instant Pot Duo 6-Quart Multicooker for $59.95, which is the same price we’re seeing at other retailers, but Kohl’s is offering $15 in Kohl’s Cash making this the best Black Friday offer we’ve seen on this Instant Pot model. Start shopping this sale on 11/21.

Blackstone 22″ Griddle Bundle at Walmart

This is likely going to be a HOT product this year, with a very much intended pun. The 22″ Blackstone Griddle Bundle for $117 is a Black Friday exclusive and this is the lowest we’ve seen for the 22″ griddle this year. Similar Blackstone griddles are running around $150 without the hardtop cover and carrying case.

Charter Club Cashmere Sweaters at Macy’s

This is a fan favorite every single year. Macy’s has had these cashmere sweaters for $40 in their Black Friday sale for as long as we can remember and we always think it’s worth picking up one or two at this price.

Alternative Options to Popular Brands

If you can’t seem to find a deal or get your hands on some of the top brands like Roomba or Instant Pot this year, have no fear! There are lots of other plan B options that we consider to be high-quality brands at great prices.

If you’re finding it hard to get a Ninja Air Fryer, Casey suggests checking out these other options:

And if the Roomba is on your list and you want some great alternatives, check out these brands:

We’ve also got some more extensive lists of alternatives for all of these popular home brands. See our favorite plan B options for the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, Instant Pot Duo, Roomba, and Keurig.
