Whew! It’s time for the biggest shopping week month of the year. We always try to stick to just buying what we need, but we’d much rather buy it at a steep discount. There are some great deals out there on everything the traveler for the 21st century needs, so check them out and see if anything matches your needs!

In many ways we’ve entered a new era of “Black Friday” deal shopping. Retailers are starting earlier than ever and the deals are at least as good online as they are in stores. Expect that the best deals will sell out quickly.

So have fun, shop responsibly and open yourself to a different kind of Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023 experience. I’ll keep adding deals as they go live, so be sure to bookmark this page and come back often.

Be sure to check Amazon’s Black Friday travel gear to see if they have anything that’s on your list!

Here are some highlights to check out:

2023’s Best Black Friday luggage deals

Apple AirTags 4-pack

Before I get into backpack and luggage Black Friday sales, you’ll definitely want to pick up this discounted 4-pack of Apple AirTags if you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac. We use them to keep tabs on our suitcases, backpacks and sometimes children!

Lo & Sons Black Friday sale

Lo & Sons makes beautiful, stylish bags and travel accessories that are full of practical organization features. I’ve had The O.G. for years and it’s perfect for an overnight or a weekend trip, but you can also use it around town. Right now you can get it for 50% off!

Under Armour duffel bag deal

We grabbed this duffel bag for our three week summer road trip and it was AMAZING! The storage capacity is great, there’s a separate compartment for shoes and the huge opening on the top makes it easy to access everything. Our kids had no trouble living out of it and there was space for several packing cubes for each of them. We’ve also used it for camping, sleepovers and more. This is one that we’ll all use for years to come. 10/10 recommend, and it’s much cheaper than when we bought it.

Peak Design Black Friday Sale

If you read this site at all, you’ll know that I love gear and I have a major soft spot for backpacks. My husband has traveled quite a few times with our Peak Design Travel Backpack and it’s pretty amazing – and right now $30 off. It has so many unique features and organizational details that we’re still finding some of them. I love how sophisticated the backpacks from Peak Design are, making it easy to melt into local crowds wherever you go. The adjustable size is a great feature if you want one pack to use for both flights and days out.

My personal favorite product from Peak Design is their packing cube line. These are my favorite packing cubes out of the two dozen I own. They can expand or compress based on your needs and they also have a separate compartment for dirty laundry. Genius! They also just feel extremely high quality compared to every other packing cube I’ve tried. I have a small and a medium (which is extremely spacious) plus their shoe bag and that set covers pretty much all of my needs for a typical trip.

Peak Design is giving an even better deal if you bundle a backpack with accessories – the backpack and packing cube set come in at 20% off when you add them both to your cart.

2023 eBags Black Friday Cyber Monday deals

eBags is having some great Black Friday deals this year, and I expect even deeper discounts as we move into Cyber Monday. Some products will get an extra 30-35% off with coupons, and sometimes you can even use multiple coupons – eBags tells you right on each product page which coupons will apply.

Highlights include:
Mother Lode Travel Backpack $80 (normally $200 – though last year the regular price was $120, so make of that what you will)
Mother Lode 21″ rolling duffle $92 (normally $230 – the sale price is much cheaper than last year!)
set of 3 packing cubes $12 (normally $30)
Pro Slim Jr laptop backpack $52 (normally $130)
… and many more!

Underwater camera deal

If you want an underwater camera or action camera without spending a ton of money, this is the deal for you! I’m even thinking about getting one for our winter break trip.

Sony a6100 Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal

HOT HOT HOT! Everyone loves the Sony a6100 – from casual travelers to travel bloggers to professional photographers who need a lighter option on the go. Today it’s offered at a huge discount – check out the details here.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday memory card deals

It wouldn’t be Black Friday without discounts on memory cards, right? This is the best time of year to pick them up – they keep getting bigger and cheaper, and this year’s deals are solid. The SanDisk Ultra line has never failed me after years of use so I highly recommend them.

The Best Black Friday travel gear deals

There are plenty of excellent Black Friday travel accessories deals to be had. Here’s a sampling to get your savings started:

2023 Amazon Fire tablet Black Friday deals

As expected, Amazon has great Black Friday deals on their Fire tablets. Our favorite version for kids is the Fire HD 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage – check it out here. It’s also worth considering the top-of-the-line option, the Amazon Fire HD 10 with 64 GB of storage. It’s got all the latest technology and will last you for years and everyone in our house fights over this one!

Amazon Fire TV stick deals

Want to stream on the “big screen” at your hotel or Airbnb? We love bringing along our super-portable Fire TV stick! Snag a great deal for you and a friend at the best prices of the year. This is technically the new Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite, but it’s even more sophisticated than the one we use at home.

Power adapter Black Friday deal

Instead of buying a new power adapter for every country you visit, pick up this universal one! It’ll let you plug in devices from any country, plus a bunch of USB devices (including the newer USB-C standard). I use this daily at home and every time we travel.

USB power strip

If the adapter above doesn’t give you enough outlets, grab this awesome USB extension cord from Anker – one of the most reputable brands in the business. It adds 3 regular US outlets and 3 USB outlets.

Power bank deals

We rely on our phones for everything when we travel – photos, directions, opening times, restaurant recs and more. Naturally our batteries have a tough time keeping up. Pick up a sweet discount on an Anker power bank this week – check prices here.

GRAYL water purifier Black Friday sale

We’re loving our new GRAYL water bottle and I really wish we’d had it during our gap year trip – it was perfect in Mexico! GRAYL is neat because it lets you fill your whole bottle with clean, safe drinking water right when you fill it. It’s ready as soon as you’re thirsty and without the limited flow of straws.

Now through Cyber Monday, you can get up to 25% off sitewide – no coupon needed.

If you’re shopping for your kids this year, don’t miss my roundup of the best Black Friday car seat deals!

  1. One of my favorite travel gizmos: I can plug my camera’s SD card into my phone and upload pictures to the cloud, text to family, post on FB/Instagram/etc. Since I have an older DSLR without wifi/bluetooth, it means I can share stuff while I’m traveling and not have to wait until I have a computer. Worth the $11,
