The Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals for Travelers

Black Friday 2019 is right around the corner, and planning well in advance guarantees you’ll be able to pounce on better bargains. Don’t dismay if you don’t get in on Black Friday deals—you get a second chance at discounts on travel gear, hotel stays, trips, and more on Cyber Monday 2019.

Check in here regularly: We’ll be updating this page with can’t-miss Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 bargains as they’re announced.

When Is Black Friday 2019?

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. In 2019, that falls on November 29. That’s much later in the month than in previous years, which makes the holiday shopping window shorter—and more frenzied. If previous years are an indication, expect many stores to kick off Black Friday sales as early as Thanksgiving evening, though most retailers will opt to start hosting those famous door-busting deals early on the morning of November 29.

When Is Cyber Monday 2019?

Cyber Monday this year falls on December 2, the Monday after Thanksgiving. Expect pre-sales before Cyber Monday, but note that the steepest discounts will be posted early in the day on December 2. As is the case at brick-and-mortar stores, popular items that are deeply discounted will be the first to sell out online, too.
