Huge eBags Black Friday Sale: 40-50% or More Off Bags & Gear
Black Friday has come early thanks to eBags, one of our absolute favorite online retailers for travel gear.
You can get 40%, 50% or more off hundreds of bags, travel accessories, and gear all the way through Black Friday. And it gets better, as you can currently earn a ton of extra airline miles on these purchases.
Check out eBags’ Black Friday page and you’ll see there’s plenty on sale. You can score hefty discounts on backpacks, carry-on bags, sets of checked luggage, and more. And this is the perfect time to pick up that set of packing cubes you’ve been thinking about, as those are on sale as well.
Better yet, plenty of different credit card and airline shopping portals are offering enhanced bonuses for shopping at eBags. Check out eBags via CashBack Monitor, our favorite tool for finding the best shopping portal bonuses, and you’ll see there is plenty to choose from, including:
- Alaska Airlines: 15x
- American Airlines: 14x
- Delta Air Lines: 12x
- United Airlines: 10x
- Chase Ultimate Rewards: Up to 10x
- Rakuten: 5% cashback (or 5x American Express Membership Rewards)
- TopCashBack: 23% cashback
So a $200 eBags purchase could net you 3,000 Alaska Airlines miles by shopping through the Mileage Plan Shopping Portal. That’s nothing to sneeze at. But you can go even farther.
Stack with an Amex Offer
Have a card that earns American Express Membership Rewards points, like the Platinum Card from American Express or the Amex Gold? Or even a co-branded American Express card like a Delta SkyMiles or Hilton card? This deal could get even better.
See if you’re eligible for an Amex Offer to get $25 back on a purchase of $125 or more. Just add that offer to your card, pay for your eBags purchase with it, and it will kick in automatically. Keep in mind you don’t have to spend $125 in one fell swoop.
Just to illustrate how far these shopping portal offers can go, you can stack them to score high-priced Tumi luggage at a steep discount. Let’s look at the Tumi V4 Expandable carry-on bag, which typically sells for $595. It’s currently on sale for as low as $415, depending on your color.
By buying the bag through TopCashBack, you’d get 23% cash back – dropping the effective price down to about $320. Add in the $25 Amex Offer, and it drops to $295. That works out to a nearly 50% discount on high-end luggage.
Thrifty Tip: Don’t have a TopCashBack account yet? You can sign up and create one here. Keep in mind that TopCashBack rebates can take up to 12 weeks to process.
Even if spendy luggage isn’t on your shopping list, this is an amazing deal. Level up with your luggage using these Black Friday deals. And make sure you get some extra points, miles, or cash back from it!
