Be Prepared For Black Friday 2021 Deals

Black Friday is chaotic - but it doesn’t have to be.
It is hard enough to believe we are already heading full speed into the holiday shopping season. After all, wasn’t it New Year's just yesterday? Well, brace yourself, because the shopping frenzy is coming, and it's coming fast. And if you are like most bargain-hunters out to get the best deals, we’ve got you covered. Find out what to expect this Black Friday and how eGift cards help you to seize those seasonal discounts!

When Is Black Friday?

While Black Friday is technically not until the day after Thanksgiving, November 26th, the sales come earlier and earlier each year. And this year, companies are trying their best to avoid shipping delays and keep with varying social distancing measures. This means we can start seeing the discounts dropping as soon as the next couple of weeks. Early Bird Black Friday specials as early as October? We’re not complaining!

Save Big On Black Friday With eGift Cards

Buy now, save later. After last year’s record-breaking online shopping numbers, we can expect most sales to hit our screens this year rather than in-store. The best way to save is to have the right way to pay at the ready when those discounts come rolling in. So, many shoppers are switching to gift cards for their holiday purchases. But why is that? Not only is it safer, because when you spend with gift cards, your private info is safely secret, but because it means more savings. Stores, including Dundle, often offer their Black Friday gift card deals or offer lower prices on top branded cards already. Grabbing the cards you need, at an already lower price, means even better deals on the Big Day. And to help you best prepare, we’ve got a list of the most useful gift cards to have during the hottest Black Friday events.

Tech & Gadget Black Friday Gift Cards

This time of year is always huge for new electronics making their debut (we’re looking at you, Apple). Which, you know what that means. Major price drops on previous models of the top-trending technology. And Black Friday is the best chance to grab them!

Amazon

When is the Amazon Black Friday Event? While they already have their fair share of pre-Black Friday sales even now, it is nothing compared to what’s to come from the #1 online retailer in the world. If last year is any indication, you can get excited for the website’s lowest prices of the year on top technology like popular laptops, tablets, vacuums, Bluetooth speakers, smartwatches and more. The best part being, unlike their Prime Day event, Amazon pushes popular best-selling products more than their own branded ones, and it is not just limited to Prime Subscription holders (although they do get early access). Every user can take advantage of their super low prices when Black Friday rolls around, making it the perfect time to stock up on all your favorite items!

Apple

Odds are someone you love has an Apple product or two on their Christmas list. Maybe even yourself? Well, Black Friday is the time of year to jump on the chance to get your hands on the usually pricey Macbooks, iPhones, iPads, AirPods and more at a great price. And if you use an Apple Gift Card on the Apple Store website on the "big weekend", you will most likely snag an extra gift card with your purchase. Savings on top of savings!

Perfect For:

  • Tech deals
  • Gadget discounts
  • Christmas gifts for dad
  • Christmas gifts for teens

Black Friday Gift Cards for Fashion

Clothing is a hot-ticket item during Black Friday events. Whether you’re on the hunt for something cozy, something sporty, something trendy or all the above - your favorite brands are ready with some huge discounts. Nearly all of the major clothing retailers will offer special deals for you to enjoy, so you're certain to find what you're looking for whether you shop at Macy's, Old Navy, Kohl's, or The Children's Place. Below are a few popular stores and their deals you can look forward to.

Lululemon

The new year, after the holidays (and feasts) usually means a fitness kick for most of us, and the lululemon Black Friday event is prepared to stock us up with the perfect outfits for it. Last year, they had a tempting 50% off their legendary leggings, high-quality yoga mats and more. So for those who have their eye on a pair, but are holding out for the perfect deal, it’s almost here. And rumor has it their discounts are offered exclusively online for 2021, making a digital lululemon Gift Card the perfect accessory to get those great prices.

Nike

You can see from Nike’s previous year’s bestsellers that they sold a huge selection of their hottest items at up to 30% off. The Nike Black Friday event is usually 3 days and the perfect opportunity to get those sneakers you’ve been eyeing with some change to spare. Their most popular items sell out fast so make sure you’ve got your Nike Gift Card ready!

Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret is known for the extra goodies they throw in during Black Friday. Will it be their signature free tote bag this year? Or something new? Only one way to find out. Not to mention their insanely low prices on their cozy robes, bras and PJ sets. Christmas pajamas, anyone? Their daily sales also usually begin the week leading up to the 26th, so be on the lookout!

Perfect For:

  • Sportswear savings
  • Christmas gifts for her
  • Christmas gifts for teens

Black Friday Gift Card for Even More Savings

Walmart

And of course, this list would not be complete without the Black Friday champions themselves, Walmart. If stereotypical news articles have proven anything, there is no denying Walmart Black Friday deals are worth checking out, but can also be hectic when shopping in-store. So what better way to enjoy the sales than online? And since last year, their popular sale was broken up into 3 huge events, we can assume this year there are even more chances to save on their already extremely affordable prices. With their incredibly diverse catalog of technology, home goods, clothing, tools, entertainment and more - your Christmas shopping will be done in a few clicks when buying with a gift card online.

Perfect For:

  • Christmas gifts for kids
  • Savings on kitchen appliances
  • Homeware and decor deals

Black Friday Gift Card for Gamers

The weekend after Thanksgiving is a notorious time for gamers to get their hands on long-awaited discounted consoles and games. So which cards are best to have on hand as the clock counts down?

Nintendo eShop

Last year, we saw great games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on discount during Black Friday at the Nintendo eShop. Some games at up to 75% off! Make sure to have your Switch in hand and ready for some slashed prices this year. Looking for physical Nintendo Switch Black Friday game deals? Check out Best Buy or Target’s Black Friday catalog for more savings.

Perfect For:

  • Christmas gifts for gamers
  • Video game and console discounts

Don’t Forget Cyber Monday 2021

Black Friday is huge, but we would be remiss to not mention its counterpart. Cyber Monday hits November 29th and is sure to bring with it some more amazing online discounts. Launched back in 2005 to encourage online shopping, it has now become one of the biggest internet shopping days of the year, along with Black Friday and Singles' Day in China. You're likely to find some great deals on that pair of Beats headphones you've been eyeing for yourself or the newest PlayStation or Xbox that's been on your list for a loved one. So, keep your eyes open at all the aforementioned websites for extra sales coming your way.

Stress-free Seasonal Shopping with eGift Cards

So, forget the stressful spending of seasons past. Keep your eye out for those price drops and other offers that are common during the holiday season, such as bonus cards and additional coupons. Then you can jump on the chance to snag the latest technology at Apple, like an Apple TV or Apple Watch, trendy clothing items like lululemon and Nike or anything you could need at Walmart or Amazon. Whatever you’re looking for to conquer this year’s shopping list, the deals are yours for the taking, and with eGift cards, you’ve got the perfect tool to claim them!
