Thanksgiving week has college students not only gearing up to stuff ourselves with delicious homemade food (stretchy waistbands, I’ve missed you), but also preparing for the biggest sales of the year: Black Friday. Whether you’re hoping to buy Christmas presents or you’re just trying to treat yourself this holiday, many stores have already started their extremely good deals. If you’re trying to stay frugal this Black Friday but still need to make it out with a new sweater or two, browse these stores for your new favorite (and cheap!) piece.

1. Victoria’s Secret

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has all simultaneously wishing we were angels and/or best friends with Bella Hadid and Barbara Palvin. If you want to feel like them this season, Victoria’s Secret is currently offering a pajama deal where if you use the code “pjbonus,” you will receive free slippers and 40% off a silky pajama set. Additionally, they are offering free shipping on orders over $50. BRB, filling up my cart with all new bras (which are also 40% off!).

2. Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is our typically expensive, mainstream hipster guilty pleasure. Well, on Black Friday, do not feel guilty about it. In-store deals will have you shopping ‘til you literally drop, but their online deals are amazing too.

And now they’re pleasing the masses financially too — ASOS is offering 60% off big brand names for Black Friday. That’s right, you’ll receive more than half of the money off of your purchase. I know, I can’t calm down either.
