Skip the Line: Black Friday Deals You Can Shop Online
'Tis the season...to shop! But who says that means leaving your house? We've rounded up our favorite Black Friday online deals so you can stay in your pajamas while you shop.
Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year—which means the lines are longer, the malls more crowded, and everyone more stressed. But this year, you can skip the lines and the crowds while still saving the big bucks. Do all of your holiday shopping from the comfort of your own home without missing out on any deals. Online is the place to be for Black Friday. In fact, many retailers have already started slashing prices! Whether you're looking to a TV or a tube of lipstick, our list of online Black Friday deals is guaranteed to save you some money...and some sanity.
Beauty or makeup lovers don’t need to wait until Black Friday to score great deals at Ulta. Their onlilne sale starts Thanksgiving Day at 5 p.m. CT—which means you can grab the best deals straight from your smartphone without leaving the big family meal. All of their deals are “while supplies last,” but you can log in early to score great deals on stocking stuffers (like Tarte mascara and Urban Decay’s Naked Petite Heat Palette) for $15 or less. Plus, if you spend $60 or more online, Ulta will gift you a nine-piece makeup set to keep for yourself—that's a deal we can't pass up!
What could be more meaningful then finding out one’s roots?

It's an especially good gift for parents or grandparents because the whole family can learn from the results.

Do your Black Friday at Walmart and there will be no need to brave the crowds or the winter weather. All of Walmart’s Black Friday deals will be online beginning Wednesday night.

Starting Wednesday, November 21 at 10 p.m. ET, Walmart will have the 2018 iPad on sale for $250—that's $80 off.

Reindeer In Here
Reindeer In Here was the “it” Christmas tradition last year. In fact, they sold out on Amazon in just 2 hours on Black Friday last year. There's no word yet on what the Black Friday price will be this year, so keep your eyes peeled and be ready to add this to your Amazon cart as soon as it becomes available at the discounted price. Reindeer in Here is a plush reindeer packaged with a book that celebrates the beautiful differences in each of us—which makes this a sweet (and inexpensive) pre-Christmas Black Friday purchase.

Amazon may not have any brick-and-mortar stores, but that’s not preventing them from dishing out deals on Black Friday. Every hour between now and Black Friday, Amazon will reveal a new deal, sale, or discount. So far, we know the new Echo Dot will be just $24. Most discounted products are a surprise until their hour comes, so it can be difficult to build a plan of attack. But, if you have a more laid-back approach to holiday shopping, Amazon’s Black Friday is perfect for you! Just keep your browser refreshed as you sip cocoa on your couch, far away from the lines and crowds at the mall.
