Coffee Chat Vol. 34 AKA All the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

Here’s the thing… I don’t like going shopping on Black Friday. I usually find that the deals are not worth the trip of leaving home, fighting the crowds, only to find that everything I actually wanted was gone because the stores only put out so few products on actual sale. Not to mention by having Black Friday sales occurring earlier and earlier (starting on THANKSGIVING DAY which is a Thursday and not a Friday I might add) means I’m forcing employees to work on a holiday (my actual favorite holiday) that’s all about family and giving thanks. That said, I do love a deal so I’m really all about Cyber Monday and online shopping.
This year, a few of my favorite brands are actually donating a portion of their profits to charities instead of having sales. I actually really love this and I’ll feature those companies first. I also realize that some people really count on these sales when it comes to holiday shopping so I will be sure to provide online codes (especially Cyber Monday deals). I don’t say all this to judge those who do go out on Black Friday because I get the allure of a great sale all too well. I’m just a grumpy homebody who prefers shopping online and the thought of crowds makes me anxious. This post is for other grumpy homebodies like me (or just people who just want a great online deal!)
Also, be sure to bookmark this page and check throughout the weekend as I will be updating this post with more sales and coupon codes as they come in.
BRANDS WHO WILL DONATE TO CHARITY
Everlane: Everlane is having a Black Friday Fund and donating $13 for every order placed to help fund beach cleanups across the country through the Surfrider Foundation. That $13 is enough to clean 1 pound of plastic off a beach.
Patagonia: Patagonia famously donated all $10 million of their profits from Black Friday sales in 2016. Since then, I’ve loved their brand. They also participate in 1% for the planet, meaning 1% of their annual sales are donated to nonprofit environmental groups. If you want my recommendation, I’ve worn their Better Sweater fleece pullover all throughout my trips to South Korea and California and it’s seriously the best.
Cuyana: I love Cuyana bags and accessories and this year, your purchases will mean more for the victims of the California wild fires. I spent the last week in California and the smoke has been ridiculous, even in Gilroy, so I can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like in Paradise, CA where everything is burned down.
STATE: State bags are a new brand to me but the minimalist in me loves their brand! For every bag purchased, STATE donates a bag to a local child in need. They will be offering 35% off sitewide, so technically it is having a sale, but they are committing a portion of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday proceeds to The Osborne Foundation, a recent partner of STATE's #WhatDoWeTellTheKids initiative.
