I wasn’t able to blog earlier, but rest assured, there are still plenty of sales going on in case you are late to the game, and Cyber Monday is sometimes better than Black Friday. I save many purchases for November — it’s best to navigate with a list in mind. Unfortunately, I don’t plan to update this during the day on Monday.

Overall
Anthropologie / 30% off through Sunday. Predicting it will be 20% off and a larger % off for sale items on Monday. I shop their homewares and beauty more often than their clothes. They have a ton of good stuff, especially natural beauty! Recent loves: Rooster Highball Glass Set, Aquis towels. Also really been wanting the Faravel Moto Jacket in my size (backordered) and this CJW Italian Elements Scarf.
Apple iTunes and Google Play gift cards from Costco for 15%+ off (requires membership). Whatever I can pay for through iTunes I will so that I’m getting a discount (including my Netflix). Youtube Red is also really useful for watching those Chinese dramas with 50+ episodes on my commute. The $100 iTunes gift card is also available at Amazon for $85 if you have the Discover credit card that gives you 5% cashback this quarter.
ShopSpring / Not sure if they will do Cyber Monday but hope they do. They are a shopping service and tend to do 20% off site-wide sales with a cap. This is great because they carry items from Clare V, L’Occitane, Barneys, Brooklinen, etc.
Target / 15% off Monday. This is when I stock up on Cerave foaming cleanser.
Texture / 3 months for $5. Expiration unknown. If you like to read magazines on your mobile device. I love this, especially when I am traveling. You can download all back issues too!
Amazon / $5 off $20 on books through Sunday with GIFTBOOK17.

Beauty 
Birchbox / Spend over $75 to get 25% site-wide through Monday. They carry some brands I love like Shu Uemura Art of Hair, Tata Harper, Dr Jart, and Oribe. You can also buy gift cards for subscriptions. I no longer get their box but this is the only time of year I would shop from them.
Dermstore / 25% off today, 30% off predicted for tomorrow. They carry a lot of other brands and I love that they also have a rewards program. They had a 30% off sale for Black Friday, currently have a 25% off sale, but I expect it to be 30% tomorrow with no exclusions. When it’s no exclusions, you can shop for Drunk Elephant. Nope, it was 25% the entire weekend and exclusions never lifted.
Glossier / 20% off and free shipping through Monday. I got the clear boy brow, stretch concealer, and body hero duo (hope it’s not too badly scented).
Tata Harper / 20% off $100+ with exclusions through Thursday, Nov 30. A pretty good sale but not the best sale. I ended up getting what I wanted at Birchbox or Cult Beauty’s Black Friday sale (with a nice gwp).
Tatcha / You have to submit your email to get your offer. They have a bunch of holiday sets. I also got their lip oil – which is nice, but a splurge. This is an ok sale — if you want Tatcha, be sure to check QVC as well who has their own sets and a free shipping promotion going on.
Bloomingdales / 10% almost all beauty with nice gwp (including full size items for Space NK purchases). Good through Monday.
Peach and Lily / 30% off Korean beauty through Monday. I have stuff in my cart but am tempted to buy nothing.
Neiman Marcus / They did a $50 off $200 through yesterday and now have a tiered gift certificate promotion. I only mention NM here because they have Vintner’s Daughter on back order.
Nordstrom / They have a lot of gift with purchases. Depending on what you are buying, the freebie may > a discount.

Clothing
Uniqlo / Love their Heattech stuff and collabs. They started their Black Friday sales early. This year I got some Ultra Warm Heattech items (which is warmer than Extra Warm).
J.Crew / Through Monday noon, 40% + 10% with some exclusions. (That’s 46% off.) I’ve been shopping a bit at J.Crew lately, but also returning a lot. If you like anything that Nordstrom carries, you can also pricematch there.
Petit Bateau / 50% off sitewide through Monday for Cyber Monday/Weekend. Black Friday was 40% off. I love their tees so I’m really excited for this milleraies travel set with shawl, eye mask, and pouch that’s made with the same material.

Home/Accessories
roztayger / 25% off full price with NOIR25. Exclusions noted on top of page. Tightly curated collection of bags. Through Monday, Nov 27.
MoMA Design Store / 20% off and free shipping through Monday. This is a pretty generous offer, especially if you are a member too. I love their curation (which also has some Uniqlo and Muji). They have the Stendig calendar which always sells out.
Need Supply Co. / 20% off through Sunday. Last year they did 25% off for Cyber Monday. A nice curation and while they have clothes, I’ve only paid attention to the home/office/accessories.
Baggu / 25% off through Monday. My favorite print of this season is the strawberry (sold out) and orange tree.
Rifle Paper Co. / 30% off through Tuesday.

PSA — 30% off Baggu on Macy’s and up to $15 in gift cards from Target on Laneige purchases!

Macy’s has a VIP sale going on. Get 30% off lots of stuff including current season Baggu and 15% off beauty (they carry Peach & Lily and Shangpree masks).

Korean brand Laneige is clearing out of Target and moving to Sephora. I think most Laneige purchases get a $10 gift card, which stacks with the $5 gift card for $20+ beauty purchase for a total of $15 Target gift cards. Some stuff is sold out, but if you like this yogurt mask (use as overnight mask), you’re in luck. Especially since Target gift cards are like cash unless you have self-restraint of steel.

This deal is available online and at select stores. They are stackable and very popular with the makeup community. If you purchase online you have to pay an additional handling fee for each unit and shipping. Not every store is running the promotion — it’s confirmed at the new Boston Newbury store, the Soho NYC store (which is closing for renovation at the end of February), and reported at a SoCal store. The Soho store also marked down most of their stock, excluding cosmetics/skincare, aroma diffusers, and luggage.

All light grey inserts in the cases below are sold separately.

Post-Christmas sales have started. Saks Fifth Avenue has 50% off Yoku Moku (amongst other things). Yoku Moku makes the best butter cookies and each cookie is packaged nicely in a reusable tin box. I love their cigare cookies (pictured). They are imported from Japan and ingredients are all natural. Plus, if you have Shoprunner, 2 day shipping is free. Shoprunner is free for Amex cardholders and PayPal users (I think).

Sales worth noting — retail must be hurting as the deals are overall better than usual. Similar to last year, many retailers have a weeklong promotion. Smaller retailers tend to stick to the traditional Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and often have different promotions for each occasion. I will be updating if I see anything good throughout the long weekend, so check back later! Newer deals will be listed on top. Happy shopping and enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend… and let me know if you get anything :)

Nordstrom / Pricematching J.Crew 40% and Madewell 25% off for most items

Amazon Luxury Beauty / Spend $50+, get $25 for future Luxury or Professional Beauty purchase code BEAUTYGIFT25 (exp unknown). Must be sold/shipped by Amazon.com.

The Target beauty department is a whopping 25% off today online and in-store. This includes makeup, skincare, haircare, fragrances, bath and body, deodorant, hand soap, oral care, women’s shave, men’s grooming, and spa & massage. Many items are already discounted (Amazon isn’t always cheapest). Like last year, I’m stocking up on Cerave foaming face wash and the Pixi Glow Tonic. They also have high-end skincare like French Embryolisse and Korean Laneige. Shipping is free!

25% off code: BEAUTY

Update: Back in stock at Sephora.com.

Another beauty deal — this Burberry Festive Box was launched for the holidays. Burberry packaging is gorgeous. It has one full-sized neutral eyeshadow in Pale Barley along with three minis. The eyeshadow alone runs $29 and this box is $35. The set launched on Sephora and soldout after restocking. Now, it’s back in stock at Nordstrom, but I’m sure it won’t be for long!

I’m not sure when the J.Crew x Net-a-Porter stripe-happy collection launched on jcrew.com, but I’m quite loving the look of the boatneck tee in dotted stripes in blue (NAP only had a pink colorway). And strangely this top is less than $18 (from $40) today with code WARMSTYLE. I’m not sure if it’s an accidental sale, how the top truly runs, or is it hand wash (NAP page) or machine wash (J.Crew), but hey, it’s not final sale! I also have other dotted stripe top recommendations below.

This is my favorite time of the year for Sephora because it’s limited edition & value sets galore! And additional 20% off for VIBs! In addition to the monthly Sephora Play! box, Sephora now carries more brands that I like including Asian beauty and natural brands. Sephora has started doing customizable sets of late. They are an affordable $25 (before any discounts), you get to choose 5 deluxe/travel sized items that you want, and due to how the discount is applied in cart, shipping is free! The first one was the Sephora Soko to Tokyo customizable set (sold out). Next was a pure hair care Style, Treat & Repeat! Custom Hair Essentials on the go (there are many sold out options).

Now there is the Customizable Skin Care & Hair Gift Set ($25) where you get to choose from a a selection of 13 items. If any of these are missing, then it’s sold out. I had to let this sit in my cart for a bit before the discount applied, not sure if it’s resolved now.
