It’s that time of year again. As the holiday season fast approaches, you may be wondering how to score the best deals. And this year, many retailers are gearing up with plenty of sales ahead of Black Friday in order to get you (and your wallet) into the holiday spirit.

So what’s the best way to navigate this tangled web of discount buys? Whether you’re looking to score a gift for yourself (no judgment!) or a surprise for a loved one, it may be hard to single out the best bargains, especially if you’re looking to elevate your apartment appliances, decor, or tech.

In the spirit of giving, we here at ApartmentRatings have come up with a handy mini-guide to navigate all the big Black Friday sales that are about to drop. On your marks, get set, shop!

Amazon’s Deal Bonanza

The Edenbrook Lynwood Upholstered Loveseat, on sale through Amazon this Black Friday.

Amazon is often the go-to for Black Friday deals, and this year will be no exception. These are just some of the deals apartment dwellers will want to add to their wishlists:

  1. Save up to 40 percent on Instant Brands Kitchen Appliances. Good news for those who’ve been eyeing that Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker or the Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer, two of the hottest appliances of the entire year — and perfect for those renters who don’t have a lot of free counter space.
  2. Save up to 43 percent on robot, cordless, and upright vacuums from Shark. We know – vacuums aren’t exactly the most glamorous gifts out there. However, they are practical, and usually pretty expensive. If you’ve been eyeing a vacuum upgrade, now’s the time to pounce with these amazing Black Friday deals. This Shark Cordless Hard Floor Vacuum Mop is a popular pick for those who want to upgrade their mopping setup (renters without carpets, we’re looking at you!) Looking for a more conventional vacuum? Then the Shark NV360 Navigator is the one for you. This bad boy works well on both carpets and bare floors, is anti-allergen, and comes with detachable pods for those hard-to-reach places.
  3. Save up to 30 percent on air purifiers from Levoit and Coway. Both of these brands are known for their top-notch air purifiers, so take your pick between Levoit’s offering with Smart WiFi Alexa Control or Coway’s dynamic Airmega complete with all the bells and whistles.
  4. Save up to 15 percent on every kind of home furnishing from rugs to mattresses. There are plenty of deals in this department to grab right now, including this Vailge Pleated Duvet Cover and this Edenbrook Lynwood Upholstered Loveseat.
  5. Been waiting to introduce more Alexa-enabled devices into your home? This year’s Black Friday deals make it easier than ever, especially with up to 42 percent off on select items. Other Amazon tech sales are sure to follow, such as up to 30 percent off the Kindle Oasis, and 50 percent off the Fire TV Stick 4K.
  6. Amazon always has awesome Black Friday deals on TVs, and the word is that this year shoppers will be able to save up to 30 percent on select models from Samsung, Sony, and LG. If you’ve been dreaming of an upgrade, now’s the time to pounce.
