8 Items to Have on Your Black Friday 2023 Shopping List

Black Friday will be here before you know it. It feels like just last week that we got through the holiday shopping season, but here we are prepping for 2023. You’ll want to keep an eye out for some products this year that are sure to have amazing deals. Here’s what you should add to the list in 2023!


Whether you’re looking to upgrade your own or give one to a family member, Black Friday is the best time to buy a new TV. TCL is a reliable and high-quality brand for smart TVs. This 6-series model has a crisp LED picture with built-in Google TV so you can watch all your streaming services in one easy-to-navigate menu.

Google Pixel 8

The holidays are perhaps the best time to upgrade your phone, since many wireless companies offer their best deals around this time. The Pixel 8 Pro is Google’s newest phone in the Pixel series, and it’s one of the more affordable smartphones on the market at only $999. Its new camera has amazing resolution, and it’s integrated with Google AI to enhance the photos to your liking.

iRobot Vacuum

You no longer have to put off vacuuming or sweeping the house. Actually you won’t have to vacuum or sweep at all. The iRobot vacuum keeps even the dirtiest floors clean all week long thanks to its Dirt Detective software powered by iRobot OS. Better yet, you can tell it to clean a specific room, since it connects to Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant. 

Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler

If you’ve had your eye on a Dyson Airwrap — the gold standard of hair drying and styling tools — Black Friday is the time to buy. A five-time Allure Best of Beauty Award winner, the Airwrap dries, curls, smooths and shapes without the extreme heat that can damage hair. It may be a splurge purchase, but it’s practically a steal when you consider cost per use and that this single tool acts as both a hair dryer and curler and helps you achieve the perfect blowout every time — and that you’ll get elevated Cash Back along with it. #girlmath

Nike Air Max 270 Sneakers

Up your sneaker game with Nike’s Air Max 270. They’re super comfy and lightweight as you work out, and any impact is absorbed by the cushioning. We’re absolutely obsessed with the crimson/fuchsia color scheme, which has absolutely nothing to do with its similarity to Rakuten’s purple. 

Google Nest

As winter starts, it’s a good idea to upgrade your regular thermostat to a smart one. The Google Nest does everything your current thermostat does, but with even more control. You can connect it to your Google Home app to adjust settings based on your comfort level and control it from anywhere. It can even detect potential issues with your HVAC system if something seems off.

KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Stand Mixer

As the holiday season begins, so does baking season. Lemon bars, sugar cookies, apple pies — no matter what you’re baking, this stand mixer and its 10 speeds does all the heavy lifting for you. There’s no “knead” to do it all yourself. Let the mixer be your sous chef.

Bose 700 Headphones

Black Friday is the perfect time to finally get the high-quality headphones you’ve so desperately wanted. Bose is one of the leading brands in the headphones game, and its 700 series is top notch thanks to its excellent noise-cancellation, comfort and long battery life.


Let the shopping begin! Just don’t forget the most important part: shopping with Rakuten. All these items can be found through Rakuten to earn you Cash Back on every purchase. Happy holidays!
