Deals on Cheap Black Friday Luggage

If you’re wondering how to find cheap luggage, you’ve come to the right … time of year. Whether it’s for standard travel to visit your relatives over Christmas, or you’re planning the trip of a lifetime, Black Friday is all about great luggage for great prices.

One of the best things about Black Friday deals on luggage is that no matter what you’re looking for, you’re probably going to get a good price. Hard shell cases, which have become increasingly popular over the last few years, are the suitcases that are made out of a hard plastic. Hard shell cases are slightly heavier than soft luggage, but provide a tougher barrier between the lumps and bumps of traveling and your clothes and personal items on the inside. Hard shell cases may be better for those who routinely travel for work or are otherwise carrying items that would be sensitive to damage.

Soft luggage is still the most popular form of luggage due to its light weight and its ability to squeeze into slightly smaller spaces than hard shell cases. Soft luggage is considered ideal for leisure travelers, especially those going on extended voyages, who may have to slog suitcases over great miles on trains, planes and automobiles.

Two of the top names in luggage are currently Samsonite and American Tourister. Both of these brands are widely available – you’ll find them everywhere from specialty luggage stores, to your local department stores, to online. You can even find Samsonite and American Tourister on Amazon, which will likely grant you the all-important free shipping on Black Friday. Don’t forget to check stores like Target and Walmart. They often have the big luggage brands for not-so-big prices, and they’ll also throw in free shipping.

In 2012 the very best Black Friday Deals on luggage didn’t come from discount stores or online-only retailers. We can’t speak to how the rest of their sales ranked, but as far as cheap luggage goes, it was Macy’s that knocked it out of the park. Entire luggage sets, such as those by Traveler’s Choice and Tag Fairfield, were discounted by hundreds of dollars. We’re talking $400 off a Traveler’s Choice spinner set, and a Tag Fairfield set that went for just $50. We’re willing to bet that Macy’s luggage section will be worth scoping out again this year. With the money you save when you find cheap luggage, you may be able to book an extra vacation.
