If you have been following this blog for a while you know that I’m not much into materialistic things. So having a few days or even weeks dedicated to sales and shopping is not exactly what I want to support. However, there are certain Cyber Monday and Black Friday Deals for digital nomads and remote workers that are highly useful.
The following deals are mostly on virtual products or services that can be extremely helpful for you if you work remotely and/or travel a lot. Have fun!

I’m a huge fan of constant self-development and education. Luckily, today there are many fantastic online courses out there, that help you learn new skills that are useful for your remote career without even leaving your home.

Black Friday Deals for Remote Workers
If you are looking for new tools and services that help you with your remote career, check out the following Black Friday and Cyber Money Deals:
FlexJobs is the number 1 platform I recommend to anyone who is looking for remote jobs. Here you can find thousands of part-time and full-time jobs on a remote and/or flexible basis. The best part is: All jobs are hand-screened which means they are 100% scam-free.

Everyone who has been following me for a while knows that I LOVE NordVPN and have been using it for years. I know that data protection sounds boring and technical but if you work online while traveling you NEED to have a reliable VPN. Here are a few reasons why a VPN service is something you should have:
- Not even people, who are using the same network as you, can see your data.
- Malicious operators can’t tap your information.
- Malicious operators can’t route you to phishing pages.
- Online advertisers have a harder time tracking and profiling you.
- You can access sites that are normally blocked due to government censorship.
See, this is definitely something every digital nomad and frequent traveler should have. It’s really not that expensive but can save you from the hassle of getting hacked.
I always go for the 2-year plan because I need it anyway and NordVPN is super reliable. So you can’t go wrong here.
If you do the same and buy NordVPN’s 2-year plan until 30 November 2022, you get the deal for only USD 2.99/month plus you receive an extra 3 months FREE. That’s a saving of 68%!
Head over to NordVPN to claim your deal now!
Now to the only material things that I’d recommend you to get. These are pretty much the basics that you need when working online either from your home office or while traveling. Some of these are usually very pricy. That’s why Black Friday and Cyber Monday are perfect chances to buy them at a big discount.
Of course, there are many places where you can get the following tools from. But I think that most of us use Amazon and they have some great deals during this time of the year. Here are a few examples:
- A lightweight, yet powerful laptop – absolutely necessary for remote work.
- A reliable smartphone – electronics are in general greatly reduced during cyber weeks.
- A laptop stand to lift your laptop to eye level and relax your neck when traveling.
- A big monitor if you work from a home office (extra tip: Get one with an integrated blue light filter – that’s easier on your eyes).
- An ergonomic office chair – absolutely essential and much better than a normal one.
- A standing desk because sitting all day can almost be as dangerous to your health as smoking.
These are just a few basics. If you are interested in more gadgets or tools that improve your remote work routine, check out my blog post on “31 Home Office Gadgets”.
Black Friday Deals for Digital Nomads and Travelers
In case you are looking for something helpful while you are traveling, check out the following Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for digital nomads.
Solis (formerly Skyroam)
Another one of my favorite tools is Solis (formerly Skyroam). This is a mobile hotspot that gives you unlimited WIFI anywhere in the world.
In contrast to other mobile hotspots, you don’t need to buy and insert a local SIM card everywhere you go. This device has a kind of a global SIM card that works in more than 130 countries of the world.
You not only get fast data, but also a secured connection due to an integrated VPN. You can connect up to 10 devices and therefore get WIFI for your partner, family, or friends, too. You can decide if you want to pay:
- per month,
- per data volume or
- per day that you use it.
For Black Friday, there have some extremely cool deals for you:
- You get USD 20 off the Solis Lite Hotspot PLUS
- 50% off any data plan
And those are only a few of the Black Friday deals! Be sure to head over to Solis to find get the best deal for your (future) travel needs!
If I book short-term accommodation somewhere, I always use Booking.com. For many years now actually. Here are just some of the perks why I love it so much:
- An incredible variety of hotels, guest houses, hostels, and apartments to choose from
- The best deals and no booking fees
- Cancelations are often possible last minute at no fee
- Their reviews include WIFI quality (super helpful when you need to get work done)
As said, prices are normally extremely good but during Black Friday and Cyber Monday you get to save up to 30% on your bookings around the world.
Head over to Booking.com to check out places for potential upcoming trips!
House Sitting Websites
Another great way to find accommodation while traveling is house sitting. Here you can stay FOR FREE at someone’s house or apartment while they are gone on holiday or business trips.
In return for the free accommodation, you watch their pets and water their plants. If you love cats, dogs, and any other animals just as much as I do, you will surely love this idea.
And another benefit: You get to live just like a local. It doesn’t get more authentic than that.
My two favorite platforms to find houses to sit are:
With both websites, you pay a relatively small annual fee and get to apply to as many house-sitting positions as you like.
At the time of writing, they didn’t have any Black Friday deals online. But make sure to check them out in case they set a deal last minute.
Black Friday Deals for Bloggers and Online Businesses
I know that many of you run a blog, too, or have an online business that requires having a website. During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are usually tons of offers for these kinds of services. That’s why I want to show you some of the best and most helpful ones:
Shopify is the perfect all-in-one solution if you want to build any type of online store or a website where you also want to sell certain products or services. This platform is super easy to use.
You don’t need any type of programming skills! It’s all drag-and-drop and you get beautiful templates and interfaces with many other websites. All you need to do is change the texts and images and you have a functioning online store in less than 30 minutes.
At the time of writing, there is no Black Friday deal online, yet. But make sure to check again to not miss any last-minute sales. Even if you can’t find a special deal, you always get 3 months of Shopify for $1/month and the basic plan is only USD 29 per month. So still a great bargain!
Btw, this was also the platform I used with one of my former clients to start a dropshipping business that now makes more than USD 95,000 per month!
Head over to Shopify now to start your new online store today!
Building a blog or website isn’t hard these days. Even I can do it (and I’m most definitely not the most tech-savvy person). The reason why it is so easy is that there are so-called themes that provide a system anyone can use. My favorite one is Divi by Elegant Themes.
Here you don’t need to have any coding skills. You get beautiful pre-made templates that you can use and simply exchange photos and texts. It also comes with an intuitive drag-and-drop method and many easy ways to customize your pages. If you don’t know how to set up a website on your own, I highly recommend you Divi Theme.
Starting on 22 November, you get the biggest discount Divi ever had. That means tons of discounts on their products and free prizes, such as a MacBook Pro.
So definitely go to the Divi website now, register for the prizes, and get the deals!
Pinterest is still one of the biggest sources of traffic for many blogs and websites. But pinning manually can be very time-consuming. I’ve been using the tool Tailwind to schedule pins to my boards for years. Here are your benefits:
- Save time by scheduling with Auto Post
- Multiply your reach with perfect-fit hashtags for every post
- SmartSchedule picks the times when your audience is most engaged
- Get better at Pinterest with insightful analytics
It’s also good to know that Tailwind is an official Pinterest & Facebook Partner, so you can rest easy knowing your account is safe.
Extra tip: You can also use Tailwind to schedule your posts for Instagram!
To get the incredible Black Friday deal of 50%, you need to start your free trial using this link before November 28, 2022. With this, you’ll get 50% off annual plans.
Get those Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals Now!
As said before, I’m not a fan of brainless consumption and the accumulation of new stuff. But the mentioned products or services are either completely digital or are needed when working online. You can’t go wrong here.
