32 Awe-Inspiring Black Friday Sales You Should Shop Through Autostraddle’s Affiliate Links So We Get Money Too

Wow! Well, Thanksgiving is over, but I bet you have lots of leftover soft foods to contemplate while getting a jump-start on the capitalist extravaganza known as Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday Shopping! If you’re planning to do some online shopping on this fine day, here’s a tip: do it through Autostraddle’s affiliate links. In fact, I’ve pulled some hot items from across the web for you below, plus there’s a big list at the bottom of other Black Friday opportunities. This holiday season, there is no excuse not to shop through a link that will give us 1% – 20% kickbacks for every dollar you spend!

Queer-Owned Retailers

For a complete list of queer-owned retailers you can support this holiday season, go here and also you can check out this list from earlier this year of queer merchants who sell apparel.

Autostraddle: The Best Place Anybody Could Spend Their Money Besides a Small Queer-Family-Owned Grocery Store That Pays All Their Farmers Fairly – 20% Off Everything with the code “AUTOSTRADDLETHIS”

Wow! The Autostraddle Store has never looked hotter. We have so many cute new things for you, like a re-release of the best-selling Scissor Sweatshirt (but in heather grey), the Erin Sullivan classic “who’s all gay here” tee, my personal fave “Dyke Drama” tee, a new shirt for the non-binary people and so many other fun things. We haven’t done our photoshoot with new merch yet, but on our older stuff we’ve added sizing info for all our models to help you pick your size! Spending money at the Autostraddle store will get you into The Good Place, I guarantee it!

Wildfang: Embrace Your Wild Feminist / Button-Up Addiction – 30% Off Storewide

Ultimate WF Wildflower Button Up ($51.80, from $74) // Warm Hood Cardigan Knit Elevated ($104.30, from $149) //  Wild Feminist Crew ($42, from $60)

This queer-women-owned business just keeps becoming more and more of a thing! Also, I got this light jacket ($52.80) from Wildfang earlier this year and it was one of the few smart purchases I made in 2018. The worst purchase, if you’re curious, was a pair of tights from lord-knows-where dot amazon dot com that were so itchy I couldn’t keep them on my legs but since I’d already put them on my legs, I couldn’t return them.

Babeland: Get Hot and Wet With 20% Off Nov 23-26

What are you gonna get? I wanted to put these new Horoscope Vibrator Sets into this collage but couldn’t get a good enough picture of them. IDK, could be relevant to your interests though!

Other Places Relevant To Your Interests With Hot Deals


I know we all hate Amazon right now and it’s evil, but numbers don’t lie my friends: y’all shop here a lot. LIKE A LOT. Even when we provide alternatives for products sold in other stores (like indie booksellers or movie streamers), you pick Amazon every time! So let’s just embrace the reality of two-day shipping and our slender wallets and if you’re gonna do this thing, do it through us.

Also they have really cute face masks.

Get Cute & Kitschy With ModCloth: 30% Off $100, 40% Off $200

ModCloth has legitimately cute gifts aplenty in addition to the dress you might incidentally buy yourself along the way. It’s like a slightly more precious version of the Urban Outfitters gift section.

Gigi by Lelo was on The Cut’s list of best vibrators, and our reviewer found that despite being weirded out by the scent, The Lily 2 quickly became their go-to vibrator. The Sona Cruise, which promises to really do a number on your clit, is 50% off! Your whole clit for 50% off!

  1. The “still bisexual after all these years” shirt is all I ever wanted in bi apparel! I bought it immediately.

  2. I was trying to buy less black shirts and more colors, but I definitely just ordered the still bi and nb shirts. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  3. GIRLS JUST WANNA DO GIRLS. Yes, yes, YES THANK U (NEXT)!! <3 ALL the new merch is perfect though. This is literally the only sale I care about.

  4. Update: I got the still bisexual tee and I donated $15 to autostraddle because you deserve it and I love you. Thanks for all you do.

  5. Y’all hit it out of the PARK with this new apparel! The still bi shirt! The Nb shirt! The Who all’s gay here shirt!

    I might have exactly $none.lol in spending money, but the question with these new designs isn’t whether I’ll be buying, but how many. Thank you ?

  6. I have a question about some of the bigger stores that have different country specific websites. Would you still get a kickback if, for example, I clicked through your link to amazon but then navigated to the Canadian version? Is this possible? Because, honestly, if I want to be able to buy gifts for people it will probably have to be through amazon, and if I am going to give my money to the evil empire, I would like to at least help you all get money at the same time.

  7. Awkward question for anyone in the know. What’s the packaging like for Autostraddle merch? I really love the logo shirt but in case I’m not there to receive the parcel myself/check the mail before they do, I don’t want to risk being outed to the people I live with.

    • my shirt just came in a plain white plastic parcel, no mention of Autostraddle on the outside at all! The return address is Hello Merch and it has “hello,” on the bottom right corner of the label but that’s it.
