Black Friday Shopping Guide for Rebels:
Cheap and Free Special 2016

By Gaurav & Brook Bhagat


Black Friday shopping

Do you have the heart of a revolutionary and the sharp eye of a bargain-hunter? Do you have a Che Guevara t-shirt, but feel like a sell-out wearing it to the mall? Is it possible to score big on Black Friday without becoming a materialistic pig and betraying your vision of peace, love and understanding for the world?

Yes, friend. If you want to protest the soulless market machine by not shopping on Black Friday, power to you. If you want to stick it to the corporate-political beast by spending your money at small businesses instead of feeding the larger predators, you have our solidarity. But what if you could find deals so sweet that taking advantage of them would actually hurt our capitalist overlords, and leave you with some awesome stuff as a side effect? If you like this last option the best, look no further. We have scoured the interwebs long and hard to find the good stuff so cheap (or free) that you can shop with your conscience and wallet intact.

Tell me about the free stuff first, you say? You got it. Some of these involve showing up first in line (“while supplies last”), so if you appreciate a good reason to leave a family gathering early, they could be just what you’re looking for. Others involve filling out rebate forms, so if you’re the type of person who can do a little paperwork and wait a couple weeks for the check, you’re in luck.


Bookmark this page because we will be updating it multiple times every day throughout the season.

Another way to save extra money on Black Friday and all year long is to make your online purchases through cash-back websites like Ebates, MyPoints, CouponCabin, Upromise, Honey and many more. The way it works is that you go on their website first, and then search for any retailer's website (Walmart, Target, Amazon etc.) through their search bar, and they give you a kickback of between 1-30% of your purchase. Many of them will have special offers and/or coupons for certain retailers, which you can use to save some extra green. Honey actually searches the web for the best coupon codes when you checkout on a retailer's website. These cash-back websites offer free signup, and some of them offer a signup bonus if you use one of the links below:
