The biggest shopping week of the year is here! I love Cyber Week because it’s a great time to shop for holiday gifts, but also to stock up on things you already use (like makeup or skincare) or need (kids clothes, kitchenware, or in my case, a new dryer – ugh). And let’s be real – we all want to find some amazing deals on those items we’ve had on our wishlists for a while. #treatyoself
Before you get started, Stop and sign up for Ebates!
My biggest tip if you’re shopping online for Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Use Ebates! You get cash back for doing nothing other than clicking a button, and they also feature promo codes to help you save more money. I’ve made hundreds back from Ebates over the years. Most retailers bump up their Ebates cashback percentages for the holiday, so you could get up to 10% back or more from stores that normally only offer 5% or less cash back. Sign up and you’ll get a $10 bonus if you click my referral link here!
Extra tip: use the Google Chrome browser extension so you don’t have to click through the Ebates site to shop – you get a little notice at the top of your screen every time there’s a deal! Here’s what it looks like:
Now that you’re ready to save, let’s get shopping!

The deal: 50% off with code TGIF plus get 10% cash back if you use Ebates
Whether you’re looking for a classic ivory cashmere sweater like Meghan’s or a fuschia wool coat like Kate’s, you can shop for your winter wardrobe essentials and save a boatload with this 50% off deal. I snatched up this velvet hair tie after the Duchess of Cambridge arrived at an engagement this Wednesday with a simple pony and black velvet bow. What a perfect look for holiday parties! And Pippa’s blue polka dot jumpsuit is on sale, plus an additional 50% off with the code, making it $41.99 instead of $168! I’m not a jumpsuit person but I’ve seen this on several of my IG friends and they look adorable.
The deal: Up to 60% off sitewide through Cyber Monday
You’ll find LOADS of great gift items for the royal fan, like Kate’s Monica Vinader Siren earrings. They’re on sale for $136.50, normally $195. On the more budget end, check out these replikate CZ stud earrings from Kate Spade (30% off at $33.60). I purchased the KUT from the Kloth stretch corduroy skinny pants in burgundy for 25% off after seeing them on one of my favorite blogs, Sheaffer Told Me To. I loved the burgundy outfit Meghan wore earlier this week, and I always want to wear that color but it looks terrible with my red hair. I’m hoping these work for me! I plan to wear them during the holidays with a black top – and of course, my new ribbon!
EDIT: After receiving the cords I did end up returning them, as they ran quite long and were too tight in the waist. The Nordstrom site recommends sizing down, but they were much too small on me and I wish I had bought my normal size. Sadly, the burgundy was sold out in the next size up. Definitely get a petite length if you are 5’4 or under!
The deal: 25% off with code FRIDAY (declining discount, goes down every hour) plus get 7% cash back if you use Ebates
This is my favorite place to buy skincare and makeup products that I can’t find in America, and they ship free to the United States if you spend $25. I’ve been using Decleor for about a year and a half now, and Meghan also loves their range of naturally-derived skincare products. Meghan’s facialist, Nichola Joss, curated this “bridal kit” (seems to be a hint as to what Meg used to prep for her wedding!) that’s on offer for $100.50 ($150 retail). It contains the oil serum Meghan is known to use, as well as my favorite night balm (it’s a miracle worker – I’ve written about it here) and a lifting flash mask. The kit seems to be excluded from the promo code but it’s still a great deal!
Right now only the mask is in stock to buy individually, but a very similar balm I also use is the Decleor ylang ylang clarifying balm. It works wonderfully for breakouts!
The deal: 50% off one item, then 40% off the rest of the store and free shipping plus 4% cash back if you use Ebates
I wrote about the Talbots London collection in a previous post and really love most of the pieces! I bought their corgi sweater a couple of months ago because I knew it would sell it out quickly. However, I wanted to wait for Black Friday to purchase anything else so I could get a bigger deal! Patience paid off because the London button-cuff sweater I was wanting is now on sale for $41.99 (original $89.50).
Also, I was excited when I saw Talbots was releasing a new black watch collection. Kate and Meghan have both sported some amazing black watch tartan items and it’s one of my favorite prints. I’m in love with the ankle-snap ponte leggings and the fun ballet flats.
Royal Collection Shop
The deal: 30% off commemorative 2018 ranges
If you didn’t get a Harry and Meghan mug or Prince Louis Christmas ornament, now is your chance! The Royal Collection Shop is offering 30% off all commemorative ranges from this year. If you live outside the UK you’ll have to deal with the pricey international shipping, but you’ll still be saving!
The deal: 30% off plus free shipping and returns with code V4N9 plus 4% cash back if you use Ebates
Boden is one of my all-time favorite places to shop! If you love a Breton stripe top like Kate, theirs are the BEST. I actually had a $15 Boden gift voucher sitting around and realized it was about to expire, so I just bought the Fun Breton in an adorable London print. Instead of $50, I spent only $20 with the 30% off code plus the voucher. Score! I also got my son the stripy music t-shirt with a Union Jack drum print.
The deal: 20% off + free shipping at $49 with code BLKFRI plus 10% cash back if you use Ebates
With loads of special promotions for Black Friday, you’ll find gifts for everyone in the family (plus yourself). Macy’s has plenty of great dupes for Kate’s Issa engagement dress at various price points – check out some favorites here. If you’re looking for similar earrings to the pearl and diamond ones Meghan received from The Queen, try this pair from Ralph Lauren on sale for under $30.
The deal: 50% off plus free shipping sitewide with code CYBER plus 8% cash back if you use Ebates
I saw this cowl neck tunic sweater a few weeks ago and thought I’d wait for Black Friday to get one since Loft always has a big sale. It’s normally $59.50 but now $29.75! If you buy it in blush, it’s a great copykate for the cowl neck the Duchess of Cambridge wore on a beach walk with Pippa back in 2011. I don’t do pale pink, so I got it in green instead (#redheadproblems). For a Meghan-inspired look, get the draped open cardigan in olive heather and pair it with a black turtleneck. It’s $34.75 after code.
EDIT for Cyber Monday: Another great royal look is this white wrap coat. I saw it in store when I went to pick up my sweater and instantly thought of Meghan’s engagement coat! It’s 50% off for Cyber Monday plus free shipping, making it $84 instead of $168.
Stella & Dot
The deal: Up to 60% Off Sale Styles + New Styles for Black Friday; 25% off everything sitewide 11-26 to 11-27 for Cyber Monday
