When the weather is getting colder and you start emerging from the office at the end of the day while it’s already pitch black out, you might be thinking it’s time to plan a getaway. I’m not an expert (just someone who grew up with a type-A mom) but travel has been such an overall shitshow for the past year that normally I’d say that you’re already too late to plan a winter vacation—but with Black Friday deals right around the corner, you just might be able to GTFO without cashing out your 401(k). Here are the best deals to keep your eye on.

You can’t do a roundup of travel products without talking about an Away suitcase. And this Black Friday, you can get discounts on every single style and size (yes, really) for the first time ever. From November 17 through 28, get $50 off any two suitcases and $100 any three suitcases. So that’s like, one carry-on and checked bag for you and one for your travel buddy.

The Carry-On

Just like booking your flights in advance, Monos is offering early bird Black Friday deals, and they’re already happening now: get up to 40% off site-wide and free shipping in under a week. But if you can’t make up your mind right now, beginning on November 25, you can take up to 50 percent off certain items and 15 percent off site-wide with code BLACKFRIDAY2022.

Check-In Large

Paravel has the type of luggage and accessories you’d take if you were booking a stay at the White Lotus in Sicily. That leather detailing! That monogramming! It just screams chic and feels like it’s made for the type of person who uses “seasons” as a verb. Whether you’re looking for jewelry cases, organizers, or luggage, you can get up to 30% off sitewide on select products through December 8.

All the best luggage in the world isn’t a huge help if you can’t find it. If you haven’t gotten on the Tile train yet, it’s time. This Black Friday, Tile’s website is offering discounts on the Tile Mate, Slim, Starter, and Sticker, with up to one-third off the original price. 

White Mate + Premium

As a former physical book devotee, trust me when I say that a Kindle will change your life—just think of all the money you’ll save in overweight bag fees, not to mention the arm energy, once you’re no longer toting 65 books for a one-week vacation. Amazon’s offering the 2022 Kindle for $100, which is a ridiculous steal.


Nordstrom’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions will slash prices on a whole slew of things, and thei Black Friday deals start on November 18… Which means if you’ve been waiting to save on a duffel for your carry-on or a fanny pack to gallivant around a new city in, now’s the time to start plotting your purchases.

As far as I’m concerned, leggings are a travel essential. I mean… going to the airport in jeans… can you imagine? *Shudders* Take the time to stock up on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, when traditionally, the athleisure giant has offered up to 50 percent off certain styles. (And if you can’t wait, the We Made Too Much section is always a great place to score some serious discounts.)

Align High-Rise Pant

Calpak is pretty much a one-stop shop for travel gear. That’s because they not only make all kinds of baggage, but they also sell the stuff you want to wear when you’re traveling. Think: everything from hard luggage and packing cubes to bathrobes and joggers. They’re offering markdowns of up to 60 percent on select items right now.

Ambeur 2-Piece Luggage Set

Everyone loves TUMI’s luggage, and while you really can’t go wrong with that, their accessories are really where it’s at, IMO. I have my eyes on this cosmetic bag with multiple compartments so your shit stays (relatively) organized.

One time, I left for the airport on 40 percent battery and assumed it would be fine since I could charge my phone at the gate. Dear reader, I was not prepared for none of the chargers at my gate to be working. So take it from me and don’t leave without a portable charger. This battery pack is already $20 off its usual price.

Are we past the age of paisley Vera Bradley luggage? Even if we are, they have tons of cute travel accessories, like neck pillows, ID cases (that one really takes me back to my college days), and organizers. All full-priced items are 30% off right now, too.

Yes, I know, technically a workout brand, but hear me out: these sweatpants. That’s it, that’s the pitch. I’m sort of kidding, but Alala is offering up to 55% off sitewide with code “BLACKOUT” (aka what I will be doing when I inexplicably add my entire net worth to cart and hit “confirm order”).

Off-Duty Sweatpant

Pretty sure it’s time to upgrade your luggage tag. We may be a bit biased, but whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else on your list, you really can’t go wrong with a fun accessory for your carry-on.
