Best Black Friday Travel and Home Goods Deals
Black Friday ads are rolling out. This year it looks like everything is on sale, from home goods to travel gear to tools. Items in all three categories make excellent (as in, practical) gifts for almost anyone on your list, so you're bound to be hunting for bargains. Here are the best Black Friday deals on home goods, travel, and tools that we've seen so far.
Black Friday Luggage Deal.Travel gear is routinely marked down big time during Black Friday sales and this year is no exception. Nearly every home goods retailer is showing deep discounts on luggage, the most popular being the 20- or 21-inch carry-on bag.
For now, Sears is offering the best Black Friday luggage deals. Two carry-on spinners are 71 percent off and the 21-inch American Trunk & Case (sold exclusively at Sears) is priced at $37.99, marked down from $129.99. One Sears shopper who has already purchased the piece remarks in a review that it's easy to maneuver and contains plenty of storage pockets. And while the zippers are stiff at first, the review continues, they loosen up with use. The other holiday special at Sears is the 20-inch Travel Concepts carry-on spinner, normally $119.99 and priced at $34.99 in the Black Friday sales. This item also seems to be a Sears exclusive and we could not find any reviews at this time.
Black Friday Bedding Sale.Bedding is always heavily discounted during Black Friday sales, as well. This year nearly every retailer that stocks home goods is featuring a six- to eight-piece bedding set that includes a comforter, sheet set, pillow shams, and bed skirt.
We found the best Black Friday deal on bedding at Kohl's. A Home Classics brand seven-piece set, sold exclusively at Kohl's, is on sale for $69.99, reduced from $199.99 -- a 65 percent savings on Black Friday. There were no reviews on the Kohl's website for this item but consumers who bought a similar seven-piece bedding set of the same brand give it an average of four stars. Most reviewers write that the bedding is plush, soft, warm, and very stylish. The few gripes reflect users who say it feels flimsy and others who report extreme wrinkling when removed from the packaging -- nothing a good ironing can't fix.
Black Friday Tool Deal.If you're wondering what to get that special DIYer in your life, a cordless drill might hit the spot. These small power tools are very well priced during Black Friday sales. We counted three retailers offering cordless drills for half price.
Our favorite Black Friday drill deal comes from Ace Hardware, where a Black & Decker 18-volt cordless drill set with stud sensor is tagged at $29.99 compared to the normal $59.99. According to users at Home Depot, this drill is powerful and worth every penny; one reviewer asserts it rivals his corded drill and gets the job done.
Kmart is also offering a cordless drill for half off on Black Friday. The Craftsman 19.2 C3 cordless drill originally cost $79.99 and is reduced to $39.99 on Black Friday. Many users who posted comments in the Craftsman community say it's one of the best drills on the market: powerful, user-friendly, and dependable; plus, it bears the respectable Craftsman name. A handful of reviewers report broken drill bits or total failure after limited use over a few years. The third drill marked 50 percent off during Black Friday sales is the Craftsman 18-volt cordless drill from Sears. This is certainly a good Black Friday deal, but we prefer the two mentioned above because they either come with more accessories or have more power.
