Black Friday 2014 Sales Happening Now

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is well rested because today is the biggest shopping day of the year and lots of companies are offering great deals online and in stores! I already posted a few of the offers, but this morning brings more information on a variety of great sales.  I haven’t ventured out for the early Friday deals in quite a few years, so shopping online is a great alternative for me.  Most of these sales will continue through the weekend through Cyber Monday, the biggest shopping day online but stocks may be limited.

Rue La La began their sale on Pandora at 8 am PST/11 am EST this morning and there are some wonderful jewelry around 50% off!  The boutique will end on December 3rd, and delivery is guaranteed by Christmas. Again, the site is by invitation only so if you don’t have an account you can sign up with my invitation.  The Black Friday Charm, Christmas Wish, was also released this morning and through the weekend (November 30th) you can purchase the charm and the two holiday gift sets for $350USD (value of $510USD).  If you don’t want to head to the mall, my recommended retailer is Pandora Towson with free shipping over $150.

Trollbeads is offering a number of wonderful Black Friday bundles, and you can find the details by clicking on the link.  These offers will last through December 2nd and the official Trollbeads website is participating.  Other dealers are hosting buy 3, get 1 free on uniques through Cyber Monday and tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, so check with your store to see if they’re participating in the American Express offers.  Perlen is also getting in on the fun with 20% off all Trollbeads with promo code: Trollbeads through November 30th; this cannot be combined with the bonus card.

Chamilia retired designs are 50% off right now through December 1st and there are lots of charms on sale including select Disney beads!  Classic Beads also have a few of Chamilia charms on sale, so check them out through the link.  The Ohm Beads promotion is only available in stores this weekend but on Cyber Monday, you can also find their retired beads half off on their official website (discount code: CYBERME) or Classic Beads and Artisan Bead Boutique as authorized dealers (this offer is only available in the US and Canada).

There is a 15% off and free shipping on all Alex and Ani products online today, and at participating stores as well, so this is a great time to pick up those items off your wish list!  This offer cannot be combined with their Bangle of the Month promotion, and the discount is applied automatically at checkout.  Persona is hosting a free bangle offer right now through December 1st when you spend $100USD online.  I’m a fan of their bangle and you can find the review in my Battle of the Bangles showcase.

Phew, that’s a lot of deals to choose from!  And please share what great sales you’ve come across and charms you’ve picked up!

    Well, I was able access the Rue Pandora sale, but I was very disappointed that it was all the same stuff as the last several sales. Chamilia was much better, I like their locks, but none of the ones I wanted were on sale. Good news is — I didn’t spend any money

    • Leann

      Aww, too bad! I got a new bracelet design in mind so was happy to pick up another charm for it ;). The Chamilia locks are awesome, I love that they already have the silicone inside. 😀

  • Vanessaqq

    No promotion from Redbalifrog? I have a long wish list of it.

    • Leann

      Nope :(.

  • koolchicken

    There was actually some stuff I wanted in the Rue La La sale but a lot of it sold from under me while I was still shopping. 🙁 At least I was still able to get some stuff before it was gone for good.

    • Camille Johannsen

      I checked the site at 10:57 58 59 & 11:00– when it automatically posted. I was on a mission! I’d like to know how some of those items could already sell that fast. I think it’s a gimmick to make you think you have to commit quickly before the things you want get sold out. JMHO

      • koolchicken

        Maybe. But I got to it almost an hour late. Some of the things I clicked on did say stuff like less than 5 in stock and they were mostly Muranos which people typically buy in bulk (I wanted three of each). So I could totally see those as selling out. You really can’t beat $20!

        Other stuff that’s sold out when the sale goes live is something different though. I think it’s probably just laziness on their part. They get a list from Pandora and then don’t bother to update it when they don’t receive everything they anticipated. Or they do, but don’t remove all of the stuff that sold from the last sale. So it says sold out, but they didn’t even have it to begin with. And while that might inspire panic in some I go into knowing they didn’t even have half that stuff.

      • Leann

        Weird! You think maybe they just have one or two of something and that’s why it’s sold so quickly?

    • Leann

      Oh no! I don’t know why I don’t use the Quick! Buy it now button, I always wait until the end and sometimes miss out as the charms :(.

  • lakesfan1

    I was surprised and happy to find some of the items that I couldn’t afford at their last sale because I broke the bank with that purchase! But, I was sad as two spacers sold out of my shopping cart while I was adding other beads to my cart. Bummer! I went back to the site late last night and was amazed at how many items were sold out. This is only the third time I’ve shopped Rue La La’s Pandora sale but I’ve been pleased with everything that I’ve ordered so far. How often does Rue La La run a Pandora sale? I maybe need to start saving for the next splurge! 🙂

    • Leann

      Oh no :(, I’m glad you were able to get some stuff you wanted though. They have them every 2-3 months or so, or more frequently if they get inventory from Pandora. I haven’t seen any pattern to their sales though.

    Hi, not related in any way but can you please tell me what American pandora online stores, if any, ship to the uk. Thank you

    • Leann

      Pandora stores are not allowed to ship outside the country, so none I’m afraid :(.

      • charley

        A shame 🙁 but never mind, maybe some day in the future- and rather sooner than later

  • Claudia

    HOw do I find the Chamilia charms? Is there a particular website? Thanks

  • Charmer

    Was disappointed that there were a lot of Pandora charms on Rue that were there the last couple of sales, but still managed to find 5 to buy. I’m looking forward to some newly retired charms next sale.

    • Leann

      Me too. Can’t wait :D.

  • Martha Harris

    I got the mouse, dragon, and acapu wood bead from the rue la la sale! I can’t wait till they come in the mail.

    • Leann

      Awesome! I can’t wait for my charms either :D.
