There are Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals for everything these days, so it should come as no surprise that even our favourite sock brands have some pretty enticing promotions during this bargain-hunting feeding frenzy.
The whole retail and marketing phenomenon of Black Friday/Cyber Monday is still relatively young in Australia. If you’re not familiar with it, Black Friday is a US tradition dating back to the 1950s. It’s a shopping extravaganza that takes place the day after Thanksgiving and marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
Clever marketers have extended the Black Friday deals over the Thanksgiving weekend and into special online deals the following Monday, resulting in what’s now called Cyber Monday.
So whilst traditionally Black Friday is on the Friday after Thanksgiving, the entire week that Black Friday falls in has become something of a bargain degustation. Many retailers are revealing — even launching — their deals early in the week, and the sales continue through until the end of the following Monday in what’s increasingly being referred to as “Cyber Week”
For example, Amazon has a dedicated Black Friday Deals page, with different deals every day until Cyber Monday.
Now, I know, I know, I know that we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but increasingly Australian sellers are running Black Friday promotions. And now that we live in a global economy you can also take advantage of Black Friday deals via online stores located overseas. Some of them are even including reduced or free shipping (usually based on a minimum purchase). And besides, with a mother in England and a brother in South Africa, I’m writing for a global audience 😉
So why not take the marketers’ bait, nab a few bargains and get your Christmas shopping sorted almost a month early! To help you, I’ve found some delicious treats for feets on offer in Cyber Week 2017. I’ll be updating this list as I encounter new deals, so be sure to check back throughout the week.
For the sake of simplicity, unless otherwise stated, any prices I quote are in US dollars. I find Google’s currency conversion tool very handy to get a feel for what it costs in Aussie dollars (excluding international banking transaction fees of course!).
Cyber Weekend Sock Deals
Happy Socks Black Friday / Cyber Monday promotion
Oh Happy (Black Fri)day! Happy Socks are having a Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale: 40% Off + Free Shipping for selected items. Their offer is valid from Nov 23 to the Nov 27 2017. Limited Editions and selected styles are excluded, and this sale can´t be combined with any other discount codes.
Woven Pear Black Friday Deal
Woven Pear is a brand I’ve admired from afar for some time for their colourful and trendy prints and patterns. You’ll find cacti and hedgehogs, hotdogs and donuts, narwhals, flamingos and foxes in their collection. If you like a particular pattern, you’d better get in quickly judging by how quickly they sell out.
They’ve also produced some of their patterns on iPhone cases, so now you can match your iPhone to your socks!
Woven Pear is having a Black Friday promotion, but the details haven’t been released yet. So be sure to check their site on Friday 24 November.
They’re based in America and offer free shipping on all US orders. Woven Pear do ship to other countries and depending on where you live, you’ll find it much more cost effective to buy several pairs of socks at once since they seem to have one standard international shipping rate to most countries of US$18.
