10 Black Friday Deals You Can Get Without Getting Out Of Your Sweatpants


Hey, who here LOVES CAPITALISM AND COMMERCE? Not me, but alas, until we move to our socialist lesbian commune utopia, I must do as the Romans do, which’s why every holiday season we beg you desperately to do your online holiday shopping through our affiliate accounts! When you visit an affiliate store via an Autostraddle link — either via a generic link to the store or a specific product link from one of our shopping guides — we get a kickback (between 3% and 20%, depending on the merchant). Why give money to corporations when you can give money to corporations who give money to us?

We’ve created an entire page dedicated to the cause, which you should immediately bookmark. At Support Autostraddle While Shopping Online: Affiliate Marketplace, you’ll find links to all our affiliate merchants, such as Fab.com, Amazon, ModCloth, Alternative Apparel, Target, Need Supply, Torrid and Topman. We actually rely more on income from affiliate accounts than we do on traditional advertising and the holidays are a crucial time for us, so every little purchase helps!

Today we present you with some kickass deals happening this weekend at various hubs of commerce.

  1. Ah! I just ordered some stuff from modcloth yesterday, and came here looking for an affiliate link and couldn’t find one (I did find a sidebar ad to click on at least). So hooray for the affiliate marketplace page!

    Also pretty excited to see Herroom on the list. Now AS can benefit from my terrible lingerie-buying problem. :/

  2. While we’re on the topic of clothes i need help. I have the HARDEST time finding good dress shirts. See im kinda short 5’1″ but i got boobage. Yeah its a word. So basically in guys its kinda tight and long but in women its the right length but they never have good dress shirts. -.-

    The headset is pretty good. Id go for that kitty sweater.

  3. Those underwear reminded me that I’ve been looking for a good pair of boyshorts since Calvin Klein stopped selling the 365 boyfriends (ugh, heteronormativity) for women. I got some tomboi briefs sans strap on at LA pride. They’re supercute but I was dumb and got white… so my favorite jeans’ dye rubs off on the crotch every time I wear the two together :( Does anyone have any suggestions/want to mourn the CKs together? Haha.

  4. Ah! I literally just bought a dress on Modcloth and THEN saw this post! I wish I’d seen this earlier, I would have used the link!

    I’ll definitely be using the Amazon link for anymore Christmas shopping though.

    (Oh man, can I justify spending that much on giant footie pajamas? Because I seriously want that black cat kigurumi.)

  5. ugh, desperately searching for the perfect headphones and failing miserably. Can anyone suggest a pair for someone with piercings? All the on ear ones I’ve tried sound great but press against my piercings. Or, they’re so huge I look like I’m wearing a helmet!

    • I have skullcandy lowriders (http://ca.skullcandy.com/shop/2011-lowrider-gold)

      Don’t have heaps of ear piercings, just 1-2 regular ones and one small bar higher up (I have just discovered it is REALLY hard to paint a word picture of where an ear piercing is!) Anyway I find these quite comfy as they’re very cushioned, also they are nowhere near as bulky as a lot of other sets.

      I got mine for about £30 sterling. Have had them for about a year and a half, still working perfectly and I am a very careless owner. They have been dropped, shoved in backpacks, constantly get smudges of make up or hair products on them and still they survive!

      I find the sound fantastic, as I had been wearing shitty iphone earphones before that. I’m sure there are more expensive ones that might be better but to be honest, I don’t think I would notice the difference. I get the point of getting awesome Sennheiser ones or whatever if you’re a DJ, but for me, listening to music in line at the bank, or watching movies on the train, these are perfect.
