Best Deals of the Day, Black Friday 2015

GeekMom Holidays


***Evening update: The stores here are cleared out! That just means it’s time to move online. I’ve updated the list below with a few more goodies.

If you’ve never shopped from the Amazon app before, you can get a $5 off with this link. Full disclosure, that’s my referral link, and I’ll get a coupon too. But after you’ve started with the app, you can generate your own code to share with friends. $5 for everyone!

Target both in-store and online today is offering a 20% off coupon for a Target shopping trip between 12/4 and 12/13 if you spend $75 today.


  • The Amazon Echo is $149 again. They briefly offered it for $99 to Prime subscribers at launch, but this seems to be the cheapest price for the foreseeable future.
  • Today it’s PNY SD cards on sale, including the micro size, so if you’ve got a phone with expandable memory or a camera on your wish list, it’s a good time to grab some SD cards.
  • Pebble Steel $99.99 at Best Buy


  • For a Wii U, Target and Wal Mart are your best bet. They’re offering the Wii U with Splatoon and Super Smash Bros for $249.99.
  • Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle, Fallout 4, and extra controller, $299.99 at Dell
  • At GameStop, the hot ticket is on pre-owned. They’re offering a buy 2, get 1, which you can also use on consoles. That’s three 3DS XL devices for the price of 2 (or an assortment of other pre-owned pieces). They’re just about unavailable on the website at this point, so you’re going to have to go to the store.


Cameras and gear

  • KEH, a great site for used camera gear that is often pretty amazing on its own, has 20% off cameras, 30% off lenses, and 50% off accessories. Free shipping over $49, which should be easy.

Games (board and video)

  • Family Game Night classic board games are still on sale.
  • Target has Disney Infinity 3.0 and Skylander SuperChargers starter packs for $34.99. Their availability online has been intermittent, so keep an eye on it. They’re also $37 at Wal Mart.
  • If you can still get yourself to a GameStop, their pre-owned Infinity and Skylanders characters are buy 2, get 3 free. No, that’s not a typo. I bought ten. All other pre-owned items are buy 2, get 1 free.


Fashion and beauty

  • If you’re interested in high-end consignment, I recommend TheRealReal and Tradesy. At TheRealReal, you can get 20% off with code THANKS today. At Tradesy, you can get $50 off a purchase of $350 (GET50), $200 off $1000 (GET200), or $500 off $2500 (GET500). (This year I scored a pair of black Louboutin pumps for under $200 with Tradesy. I’m in love.)
  • ThredUp is a little bit lower end and also has kids and maternity consignment. You can get 40% off your first order with TAKE40 and free shipping for everyone.
  • Clothes are all 40% off at Target.
  • This reddit thread rounds up the makeup sales for today and Cyber Monday.
  • Ulta has some Black Friday specials exclusive to the website. My favorite is $11 for the Urban Decay travel kit. It includes Perversion, which, as far as I’m concerned, is made of magic and unicorn hair, given what it does to my lashes!
  • DSW has 30% off two pairs of shoes. What I didn’t realize yesterday is that it includes clearance. And if you’re a member, you may have a $20 off $50 coupon. We scored about $350 worth of shoes for $40.
  • CorsetDeal has 50% off a ton of gear. They’re not going to be daily wear corsets, but for costume purposes, they’re great. Code BLACK50.
  • Haute Look has free shipping sitewide, today only.
