Believe it or not, fall is almost upon us. Along with pumpkin spice lattes, transitional cardigans, and warming stews, the new chill in the air is also a reminder of this key shopping holiday: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It might feel like the Thanksgiving weekend is a long way away, but that just means there’s more time to get a head start on deals. And while we’re keeping an eye out for fashion, beauty, and home deals, perhaps the most elusive sale to shop is for Black Friday luggage deals.
Whether you’re a jetsetter who’s constantly on the hunt for new and improved luggage, the wanderlust type who’s already thinking of next summer’s travels, or the reluctant flier who needs a suitcase that does it all, buying luggage on sale is a great way to minimize the costs of travel. For one thing, luggage can be incredibly costly, which necessitates a good deal. Plus, the holidays usually mean stressful days traveling home with bags filled with gifts, and a good weekender bag can reduce last-minute nerves. Since we’re still a few months away from Black Friday, we can’t know all the details of these sales yet. But judging from last year’s deals, we do have some insider knowledge that may be helpful when you start to make your shopping plans. Here, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about the best Black Friday luggage deals of 2023. Keep this tab bookmarked–we’ll be updating with even more sale information as we get closer to Thanksgiving.
