How to Choose Luggage During Black Friday

Just like bargain shopping any time, it’s best to start out with a list of what you really need, and then stay focused. Don’t get distracted by an amazing deal that leaves you with a suitcase that’s too big or too small for your needs, and ends up vacationing in your closet.

  1. How often do you travel? Frequent flyers need products that can stand up to a lot of abuse, so it may be worth paying a bit more. That’s not to say that you might not be able to get a great deal if you follow our guidance. If you only head out on the occasional vacation or to visit family, you can probably get away with something that’s more value-oriented.
  2. What do you really need? Do you tend to do lots of overnight business trips and the occasional long weekend in the country? A decent carry-on can probably get you through. Like cruises or car vacations (or you’re our favorite kind of guy, the consummate clothes horse)? Then trade up to a full-size suitcase that allows you to pack a fully-realized wardrobe.
  3. Have a brand in mind. Maybe you already have a few pieces and are looking to complement a particular style, or you know from some of your buddies that a particular piece serves them well. If you have a specific brand in mind you can check the brand’s own retail site or company store, but don’t forget to compare with Amazon and department stores.
  4. What color is your bargain? The Tumi carry-on we referenced above is a great example: the blue is marked down, but classic black or gray are not. If you’re not dead-set on having a classic black suitcase, watch for deals on discontinued colors or patterns. (Remember that a bright color or pattern might take a little more abuse over time, but will always be easier to identify on the carousel.)
  5. Search, then search again. Once you’ve settled on what you want and need, check various sites to see what may be available. Once you’ve found retail sites or stores that carry your brand, sign up for the mailing list if they offer free shipping or an additional discount (you can always opt out later), and if they aren’t offering Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, look for sale sections that may have discontinued items.

Where to Find the Best Luggage Sales 

This is definitely a mixed bag (pardon the expression). It’s probably even a good idea to check out your local luggage store, but it’s not likely that they’ll be able to beat the prices that the big stores can offer as a result of economies of scale.

  • Amazon:  We found the deals featured above at luggage brand sites as well as major retailers such as Amazon.
  • Macy’s: Department stores and luggage companies are having huge clearances so be sure to take advantage (and give them a helping hand!) by grabbing great luggage deals.
  • Target: Gearing up for Black Friday Traget has deals from top brands including SWISSGEAR, American Tourister, Rockland Skyline, Disney and Crckt.
  • Samsonite: 50% off applied in cart + 30% off on the order with holiday code – stay tuned for the release!
  • Nordstrom: Up to 60% off on durable luggage brand Briggs & Riley.
  • Saks Fifth Avenue: Get up to $200 off on select luggage items with code BFEARLYSF, which ends November 24th!
  • AWAY: Save up to $100 on Away luggage & suitcase sets
  • Kohl’s: Huge discount on all luggage & suitcase pieces and sets until Cyber Monday.
  • Macy’s: Huge sale across the site on luggage and backpacks.
  • Herschel: Get up to 60% off your purchase on the perfect carryons from quality backpacks and duffle bags.

Be sure to check back to find deals on suitcases, carry-ons, messenger bags, and other travel bags in anticipation of open roads ahead. Bon voyage!
