Black Friday Guide: Top Deals & Savvy Shopping Tips

Black Friday has rapidly become one of the biggest shopping days in Canada, and the deals have never been so good – which means there is no better time to shop for all your Christmas gifts (and maybe even something for yourself too)! Our LDExperts have compiled this guide of the Black Friday deals they are most excited about, and are also sharing some savvy shopping tips for comparing products. We’re here to make sure you get the products you’re looking for at the best price this Black Friday. Our Black Friday deals go live online at 8pm PST, Thursday Nov 28th.

Instant Pot 8Qt 7-in-1 Cooker – $79.99 (Save $120) – Black Friday price in effect now.

The Instant Pot is a top seller, and for obvious reasons. This magic pot replaces many separate appliances in the kitchen. It slow cooks, pressure cooks, makes yogurt, rice and more! The practicality and versatility are why they’ve become a staple in so many kitchens. When purchasing, be aware of the functions and the size. While on the surface, the various models all might appear identical, there are larger and smaller versions, and some that have more or fewer features. Always read the fine print to make sure your Instapot 7-in-1 can do everything you’d expect. Our Black Friday sale model is the larger 8qt model, with dual pressure and 3 temperature settings.
