Black Friday is coming up and everyone is asking “what can I expect for Black Friday deals on cloth diapers” and to that, I almost always – check out old blog posts and not much changes.
In general, expect sales from 10-30%. This is great because we rarely see sales on some products, and the margin is not as great as you might expect. In my experience, a 20% sale on a cloth diaper is a great discount.
The fun in Black Friday, much like Earth Day, is that sales are a SURPRISE, but humans are predictable and 8/10 times, brands and retailers do the exact same thing. I will warn you, that usually the deepest sales are exclusive to Black Friday, but product will and does sell out. If you’re new to cloth diapering, you should grab a copy of my book, and then a few diapers.
