Friday has finally arrived and we feel that that's reason enough to treat ourselves to some self-congratulatory shopping. Luckily, we've found some dapper discounts on self-indulgent presents that will limit the guilt on such frivolous spending. We've spotted the ASUS Taichi Laptop for $100 under our Black Friday price, a $61 overnight drop on a Dooney & Bourke designer handbag, and more in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Macy's cuts 25% offwomen's handbags (including already-discounted items) via coupon code "FRIEND" as part of its Friends and Family Sale. With prices from $4.49 after the coupon, that's the best sale we've seen on such a large selection of women's handbags at Macy's and it puts many styles at the lowest total price we could find. (For further comparison, we saw two select handbags for $85 in October.) Shipping starts at $9.95 or get free shipping on orders of $99 or more. Some exclusions apply. Coupon expires December 9. A couple of best bets, with prices after the coupon:
Macy's offers the Dooney & Bourke Florentine Medium Savannah Satchel in Natural (pictured), Orange, or Royal Blue for $183.99. Coupon code "FRIEND" cuts the price to $137.99. With free shipping, that's $61 under our mention from earlier today and the lowest total price we could find, also by $61. This satchel features double handles with a 3" drop and a detachable long strap with a 21" drop.
Amazon takes 30% off select shoes, handbags, and more when you spend $100 or more via coupon code "CMSHOE3O". Even better, all orders that qualify for this discount also qualify for free shipping. That's among the best discounts we've seen on shoes and handbags from Amazon, although we saw a selection of shoes for 50% off yesterday. A couple best bets, with prices after discount:
