Gigundo Black Friday promotions are as intrinsic to the third week of November as turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. But preparing for them shouldn't require the same up-to-your-elbows-in-giblets work. This year, we've simplified things by compiling a handy list of the best markdowns happening. Click through to save yourself some time for pumpkin scooping and crust rolling. (Or dialing the caterer-hey, more time for shopping!)
For one day only, you'll get $20 off everything from flower-printed satin sheets to pillows with feather trim to metallic wicker stools. Also, domestic ground shipping will be free for all orders.

Instead of offering product discounts, the activewear company's stores are hosting "Take a Breather From Black Friday" events on November 23 with free fitness classes with healthy snacks on the house. Visit Athleta.com/stores to find a participating location near you.
To avoid the Black Friday rush, this sale will actually start on Wednesday, November 21-and run through Cyber Monday-with thousands of home goods slashed between 20 and 50 percent off. Some of the offers will include a 20 percent markdown on Dwell Studio pieces and an additional 25 percent off bakeware orders of $50 or more.
All Black Friday long, the website will by taking 40 percent all orders and shipping for free. Some of the currently full-priced pieces up for nearly-half off grabs include a $118.80 Melton peacoat (now $198) and a cozy men's argyle sweater for $81 ($135 right now).
