Shopping News: Amazon reports its biggest Black Friday ever and Claire partners with Macy’s

  1. This month, Apple introduced a redesign of Apple Music Replay, a tool that summarizes the music listening habits of Users of the Year, including the number of minutes you’ve spent listening to music, as well as your top artists, albums, – music genres and songs. The redesign aims to be a natural competitor to the social media-friendly Spotify Wrapped feature, opined Monica Chin in The Verge, but it’s not that easy to share with your followers.

  2. Amazon reported that the past Black Friday Cyber ​​Monday shopping event was the “biggest ever” with consumers buying “hundreds of millions of products,” according to CNBC. Apple AirPods and Amazon-branded devices like Echo Dot and Fire TV streaming sticks were among the top-selling items, as were apparel from Champion and Nintendo Switch consoles.

  3. Fashion and accessories brand Claire’s has partnered with Macy’s to open Claire’s stores in 20 Macy’s locations. A press release said Claire’s partnership with the department store “further diversifies the brand’s retail presence.”

What we bought this week

As we covered the Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales, our employees bought a few items of their own, including Christmas gifts and household essentials. Here are the products we’re most looking forward to.

“I bought these sneakers when they first came out in March and have been (literally) killing them ever since. When I saw they were on sale I couldn’t resist buying a new pair. They’re lightweight but supportive and are great for running outdoors or on the treadmill.” — Zoe Malin, Assistant Editor for Updates

“My brother and I bought this iPad as a Christmas present for my mother. My mom is an iPad loyalist and has been using the same iPad to watch most of her movies and TV shows since 2017. We wanted to give it a bigger screen and a clearer display, so we went with the 10.2-inch 9th Gen option, which also has up to 10 hours of battery life and can also work with an Apple Pencil.” — Katrina Liu, intern in the digital editorial department

“Although my partner and I always hire a sitter for our cats on vacation, I still wanted to be able to keep an eye on my pets myself, so I chose the Furbo dog camera. In addition to being able to check on my cats (Enzo and Luna), I also hand out treats for them, which makes me feel close to them even from afar.” —Rebecca Rodriguez, Editor-in-Chief

What we recommended this week

  1. To recommend the best artificial Christmas trees, we spoke to representatives from the American Christmas Tree Association and veterinarians about your pet’s potential allergies to real vs. artificial trees.

  2. To show readers the products they bought the most over Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday, we’ve rounded up the top performing items like Airpods and All-Clad cookware.
