Black Friday Is Coming

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… FOR SALES. If you are on that college budget but still need to do your Christmas shopping, don’t worry! On Black Friday there are so many sales that will help you save money. But you need to plan ahead to make sure you don’t miss these deals or everything doesn’t sell out before you get there.

For people in dire need of a laptop, here are some deals for you.

Walmart - The Asus VivoBook 15 is being sold for $249. The Asus VivoBook features a 15.6-inch screen and is good for everyday use. For those who want a bigger screen to work with, this is perfect for you.

Best Buy – The HP 14” AMD A9-Series Laptop is going for $199! HP is famous for its laptops being affordable powerhouses for students who need a laptop for their daily tasks. It comes with 128GB of storage and has a 14-inch screen. The screen is smaller, but that means it will be lighter and fit into smaller backpacks. But this offer is only on Friday, so be prepared!

2. Fragrances

ColourPop - From Nov. 25 to Dec. 3, all ColourPop Cosmetics brands—ColourPop, Fourth Ray and Sol Body—are 30% off with some exclusions. Plus, ColourPop is offering free domestic shipping from Nov. 21 to Nov. 24 with no minimum needed! The brand will also be announcing “doorbuster deals” and even new launches on Nov. 25 that will be available throughout the week. ColourPop often sells out fast on Black Friday, so you HAVE to be ready when the sales start or you’ll be stuck with the leftovers. ColourPop is a very affordable brand with fun colors and low prices. This would be a good gift for girls who are just beginning to dabble in the world of makeup.

5. Face Masks

For any first-time shoppers out there, make sure to plan out what you want and which stores you want to shop at. Most importantly, be safe out there and I’ll see you in the checkout aisle!
