Hi, friends! I’ll be updating this post as I find and share the BEST Black Friday deals for you in all categories! I’ll be starting with cooking and Instant Pots, of course!
I also wanted to THANK YOU so much for shopping through my links. Like I mentioned above, I may earn a small commission off of your purchases if you use my links to shop (at no additional cost to you!) This just really helps support my business. So thank you!
I hope you had a lovely, delicious, and safe Thanksgiving today!
Let’s get started with the best way to save money while doing your holiday shopping this year!
How to get the BEST deal shopping this year
I’ve got an obsession with saving money. I rarely buy anything I love at full price. I’m really frugal and love to get the best deal. So I love using *Rakuten (formerly known as Ebates) to earn CASH BACK on online purchases.
To date, I’ve gotten over $1000 cash back by using and sharing Rakuten with my friends. What you do is go to their site, and open a shopping trip. That’s it! Shop from that shopping trip, and any eligible purchase will be credited back to you in the form of CASH!
If you use my referral link, you’ll also get a check for $40 cash with your first purchase. Usually the cash back reward is only $10! Cash back varies from store and day, but it can range from 1-15% CASH back.
Ok, so make sure you use Rakuten when you buy on Amazon, Target, Walmart, Old Navy, and thousands of other stores this year!! It’s awesome!
BEST Instant Pot/Accessory Deals
So far, the best Instant Pot Duo 6 quart deal on Amazon has sold out. But here are other phenomenal deals. If you’re having trouble deciding, make sure you read my post on WHICH INSTANT POT TO BUY.
- Lowest price ever on my favorite steamer basket. Stack the coupon on Amazon with my code, IPCOOKING25 to give you the best price. Add the code at checkout.

- An additional inner pot is really nice if you use your Instant Pot a lot! It’s $10 off, but it is really nice to have and doesn’t ever go on sale. Last year it was about $3 off.
- BEST DEAL: Instant Pot Duo Nova is HALF OFF. This is literally the best deal I have seen on an Instant Pot in years. It’s going to sell out ASAP. Both the 6 and 8 Quart is on sale.
- Instant Pot Duo Crisp: Save $50! This is a good deal on this particular model if you want it!
- Instant Pot Smart Wifi: Save 40%! This is a really good deal on this model that has wifi capabilities.

Gifts for the Cook in your Life
- This 5.8 quart Air Fryer is one of the best deals I’ve seen online! It has great reviews and is a good size. I do not recommend buying an air fryer that is smaller than 5 quarts.
- This Cosori Air Fryer is a little bit more, but it’s the same size and a GREAT deal from it’s original price (28%). It also has a coupon you can clip for an additional $6 off. It has almost 35,000 amazing reviews.
- Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker over 50% off! This is a great deal on this
- machine for making ice cream at home!
- Magic Bullet 25% off! I actually love and use mine every single day just about to make small smoothies, blend a small amount of veggies, chop up graham crackers for my cheesecake, etc. This would be an awesome gift for a college student or young married couple, or even a single adult or family!
- I LOVE my chopped I got this summer. It’s amazing and I use it all the time. I got the one with the mandolin attachment and it’s perfect. I use it to save a ton of time when chopping veggies for Black Bean and Corn Salad.Vanilla Bean Paste– This is an amazing gift for the person in your life that has everything and loves to cook. It elevates everything like Instant Pot Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding and Instant Pot Creme Brulee.
- This flat whisk is the BESTTTT. If the Pioneer Woman tells you to get something, you just get it. And now I’m telling you. Do you really need any more convincing?
Gift for Everyone
- Apple Airpods
- Less than $20 for an Amazon Echo Dot! We gave these as Christmas presents last year and they are SO FUN. Even teens love them because they can play music in their rooms, ask Alexa questions, set a timer, ask Alexa the weather, etc. More than half off!
- Save 50% on this Echo Show- SUPER good deal! This is in my cart and I’m trying to decide if this is a good thing or not for my kids. My friend has one and connects it to her Ring doorbell so she can see who is at her door. I might need it… This would be a fun family gift. Last year it was only 44% off.
- 50% off! 23andme Ancestry DNA test with health included. I did one of these and it was so fascinating and cool. If you want a slightly more affordable one, this Ancestry brand kit is half the cost (but doesn’t have as many features).
- Deebot Robot Vacuum. Dude. This thing is LIFE CHANGING. and on sale for $139!! Lowest price EVER and $11 less than last year’s black friday deal. I’ve never had one that costs $700 but I will tell you I’ve used more than $700 worth of my $150 robot! I LOVE watching it clean while I cook or play with the kids. It’s the best family pet ever.
- My favorite site for personalized things and planners Erin Condren is having their 30% off Black Friday sale.

- I LOVE these water pads for the kids- very little mess and both my kids (3 & 5) love them but I think it’s great for kids younger or older. We have two of them.
- It’s a 10! This stuff rarely goes on sale and one bottle lasts me literally 2+ years. I ordered this today! It’s the only thing I use for my hair.

- Bath and Body Works Black Chamomile Pillow Spray. This is sooo good. It has the most unique and comforting smell ever and tons of my readers have told me they love it. In fact, I just added it to this list because I got a comment saying thanks for recommending it! This is a unique gift that IS NOT lotion or body wash because… ya know, we get a lot of that as women!
