Black Friday Prepping Deals [2021]

** This post is updated each year for the latest Black Friday prepping deals- this is now our 4th year our team is bringing you the best deals of the season! **

Black Friday has become one of the best times of the year to buy stuff. “Doorbusters” lure us in to kick start their holiday shopping. Prepping supplies are no exception. You can find all sorts of survival gear on sale during Black Friday. The downside of all this is obviously the traffic and the in-store ‘mobs’. I don’t particularly care to get caught up with any of that mess, and online deals have spread out past the traditional Cyber Monday- even into Black Friday itself.

If you do feel the need to go out into the insane crowds, we urge you to shop local and find good deals from the little guys. The crowds should be less, the deals just as good, and the money stays in your hometown. We scanned over all of the best survival and prepping finds and listed them out below. So if you are making a wish list or have a few preppers to buy some Christmas presents for: check them out below!

The Good Black Friday Prepping Deals

One of the up-and-comers for Black Friday deals is the online megastore that is Amazon. They run deals for the entire Black Friday week, and then just keep going for the entire Cyber Monday week. Some of the stuff is Chinese junk- so don’t go on a spending spree without doing a little research.

I like to narrow it down by checking out the sports and outdoors category. It’s always changing based on stock and availability, so we can’t just list one good deal, but you can be sure they are out there. Camping lanterns, LED flashlights, backpacking packs, and gun holsters are a few of the deals I’ve found in the past.

The main deals I have my eyes on include:

The Great Black Friday Prepping Deals

Olight makes some of the best weapon, tactical, and EDC flashlights and have an enormous catalog. They have flash sales pretty often, but they are going all out for this year’s Black Friday event. They are running up to 50% off their entire catalog, including some of our top picks from our light roundups.

The i3T EOS (our top EDC Flashlight pick) is only $14!

The Baton III (our upgrade pick from the same roundup) is down to $70!

Whether you are looking for a weapon light, headlamp for your bug-out bag or an EDC option- Olight has you covered this year. The lights make great gifts, so you can knock out some holiday shopping while you are at it. Between the free giveaway and the credits you can earn just by sharing their deal, you could drop a top-of-the-line torch in everyone’s stocking this year. Check out their Black Friday deals here:

The Best Black Friday Prepping Deals

eBay isn’t just for selling your used gear anymore. They are busting out all the stops in their continuous chase of that Amazon big business. Sometimes, in order to get a little more market share, you have to lose some money- and it looks like they plan on doing just that for Black Friday!

This year they have really stepped up the ante for Black Friday. They are holding most of their deals until the actual day. Some of our favorites to track include:

  • Home improvement tools, like a Milwaukee Sawzall at 40% off. Hand tools too!
  • Home security gear, like Ring doorbells at the lowest price of the year.
  • Hunting knives at huge markdowns.
  • Of course, all of the electronics have huge markdowns as well to compete with Amazon/Walmart.

You can find pretty much anything on eBay, but the eBay official sponsored sale items are in limited supply, so it’s worth checking out early:

The Insane Black Friday Prepping Deals

Capping our Black Friday finds is Legacy Food Storage. The pandemic and several other factors have completely shocked their supply chain, but they are still shipping and have an excellent sale lined up. They are running a 20% off sale and look to be running it until they just run out of everything- which will be well before Black Friday.

Legacy is offering even more off (30%) on their 360 serving package (a whopping 92 pounds of food), which is the best deal-per-calorie online.

They were sold out for most of 2021 and are struggling to meet demand with extended shipping times, so I’m not quite sure why they are running such a good sale on emergency food kits that everyone is scrambling to buy anyways. That’s why this is our insane deal this year- it doesn’t make much business sense!

We’ve reviewed plenty of food storage brands, and found Legacy Food Storage to be the best in our kit review: The Best Prepper Food Kits for Long Term Storage.

Their sale is for as long as supplies last, and shipment time can are already a little backed up so I would jump on this deal well before Black Friday.

The Final Word

Finding good deals for Black Friday or Cyber Monday can be fun and rewarding, but don’t lose track of the reason we are celebrating in the first place. Coming together with your family should come first if you are fortunate enough to have them around.
