Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2010 Deals for Christians
November 29, 2010
Black Friday has come and gone but Cyber Monday still offers an opportunity to save some money on online purchases. Here are some of the deals I’ve found:
Amazon has all kinds of deals on all kinds of items. Some of the deals come and go very quickly, so keep an eye on the site. Note that most of the product categories have their own deals listed, besides the main deals page I’ve linked here:
- Cyber Monday deals
- It’s not a bad idea to keep an eye on the Gold Box deal. For now it’s a TV, but it may change later in the day.
Two things to note about Amazon deals. First, note that you can use the category dropdown to see all the deals in a specific category. Then note that the page lists available deals and ones that will be coming soon. There is a countdown timer beneath each of these listings to tell you when specific products will go on sale. You may need to be fast on some of them.
Centricity Music is offering all of their albums (downloadable versions) at just $3.99 from Friday until Monday. I particularly recommend:
- Downhere (all their albums)
- Andrew Peterson (Resurrection Letters and Counting Stars)
- Me in Motion
- If you’re into Christmas music, take a look at Bethlehem Skyline
Christian Book Distributors & CBD Reformed
- Matthew Henry’s Commentary (6 volumes)
- Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology
- ESV Study Bible
- Knowing God by J.I. Packer
- Vintage Jesus by Mark Driscoll
- What Did You Expect? by Paul Tripp
- Big Truths for Young Hearts by Bruce Ware
To find other deals, visit any of the links above and then look to the sidebar on the left of the screen. There you can sort by the amount of the discount being offered. You’ll find a few good bargains if you click around.
ChristianAudio is offering 2 great books at just $2.98 each:
- Wrestling with an Angel by Greg Lucas
- Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung
While you’re there (and if you haven’t done so yet) be sure to download John Piper’s Don’t Waste Your Life (which is free until the end of the month) and check out the twice-yearly sale which features most of the books on the site for $7.49.
Getty Music has 3 gift packs, each of which includes several CDs and/or DVDs at reduced prices. If you use the coupon code Christmas10 you can get a further 10% off. The middle pack, with 2 Getty albums and a Townend album, is probably the best one.
Good Book Company
The Good Book Company is offering 25% off everything on their site from 5am on Friday until Midnight on Monday. Just visit the site to take advantage of the deal as the discount has already been applied.
Grace & Truth Books
Grace & Truth Books is having a weekend-long sale featuring discounts on several sets and a wide variety of books.
Ligonier Ministries is offering a list of products at a very steep discount. You can find books, teaching series, Bibles, etc.
Logos has an interesting special going on. You’ll have to visit their site to get the details, but essentially you can submit three products to them and ask for a discount. They’ll then get back to you with the prices they can offer you. Sounds like a neat idea.
Matthias Media has an interesting deal. They have 7 books at $5 each, but you need to buy at least 3 to get them at that price (you can buy up to all 7 if you want). The list includes the ministry must-have The Trellis and the Vine. You’ll get free shipping if your order total exceeds $60.
- The Trellis and the Vine
- The Archer and the Arrow
- God Is Enough
- Right Side Up
- Stirrings of the Soul
- Islam in our Backyard
Monergism Books is offering several Black Friday deals. Also, you can use coupon code blackfriday2010 to take 10% off your order if your total is $50 or more. That coupon code is good until Saturday at 11:59 PM.
- ESV Study Bible (Cowhide, brown) - 50% off
- George Whitefield Daily Readings - $9.99
- Other sale items
New Growth Press
New Growth Press will be offering a special deal on Cyber Monday. They are doing 2 for 1 on their new bestselling devotional book Long Story Short.
Reformation Heritage Books
Reformation Heritage Books is offering a long list of books, most of which are priced at $10. Some of these deals are really good, some not quite so much, so you may want to price compare a little.
- Augustine of Hippo at $10 is a bargain (one for the kids)
- Same with 365 Days with John Calvin (if you’re looking for a devotional)
- $7.50 is a good price for Dallimore’s biography of Edward Irving
Seeds Family Worship
Seeds Family Worship, which sets Scripture to upbeat, fun music, has 30% off their CDs from Friday to Monday. Use the coupon code THANKS30 to take advantage of the deal.
Sojourn Music is offering all four of their (excellent) CDs for just $20 + $6 shipping. This is a Friday-only deal.
Westminster Books is having a big sale on Cyber Monday. All ESV Bibles are 45% off.
Also, they’ve put a list of my favorite books on sale (5 good biographies, 5 favorites from 2010). Add any of them to your cart and they’ll automatically deduct 10%.
If you know of other stores that will be having sales on items that should be of particular interest to Christians, do let me know.
Note: I know some will accuse me of feeding a conusmeristic culture with this post. But as I figure it, this is the time where many of us will be beginning (or completing) our holiday shopping. If there are savings to be had, we may as well take advantage…
