A few years ago, Cyber Monday was pretty much just for buying new technology. If you wanted a new computer, TV, or console, you could head to Newegg and find something that met your needs. Now, every retailer is getting involved, and you can buy everything from a new mattress to a coffee maker, from the comfort of your couch.
A lot of people use the holiday sales to redecorate. One quick and cheap way to refresh your home’s aesthetic, that I think many people overlook, is replacing your dinnerware. New plates can help make that leftover turkey seem like an exciting new dish, even if you’ve eaten it for every meal since Thanksgiving.
Of course, since “new dinnerware” isn’t what most people think of when they think of Cyber Monday sales, it can be a bit difficult to find the best deals. Between all the different retailers and all the different possible styles, it can all be overwhelming. Below, I’ll be breaking down some of the best deals I found on dinnerware, flatware, and silverware, by the different stores you can get them at.
Amazon is the undisputed king of Cyber Monday, and that’s just as true for their kitchen & dining products as anything else.
- Lenox brand flatware and dinnerware is up to 60% off. Lenox is one of the most popular brands of dining products – their Federal line is probably familiar from your last meal at a nice steakhouse. When friends ask me for recommendations on dinnerware brands, Lenox is almost always the first name I mention, and for good reason.
- If you’re hosting a big Christmas dinner, consider picking up the International Silver American Bead flatware set that Amazon has for $34.16. The set comes with 8 of each: dinner forks and knives, salad forks, soup spoons, and teaspoons, as well 8 steak knives, 2 serving spoons, a serving fork, and a butter knife and sugar spoon. Pretty much everything you’d need to set a proper table.
- Everything Lenox sells is pretty… plain looking. If you’re interested in some more exciting dinnerware, consider the Corelle Impressions Dinnerware set. Corelle is known for their solid stoneware, and the Impressions line is one of the prettiest they offer. Amazon is advertising the Watercolor pattern, so consider that if you can’t decide.
Amazon might be Cyber Monday royalty, but Target isn’t going down without a fight. Over the past few years, Target has become known as one of the best retail stores for home goods, carrying exclusive designer lines. With Cyber Monday, you’ll be able to pick up some of these products at a great price: everything is 15% off.
- I mentioned that Corelle is known for their high-quality stoneware – plates and bowls that look similar to ceramic but are much more shatter-resistant. Well, Target carries a huge variety of Corelle stoneware. Whether you’re looking for plain white, traditional china blue, or monochromatic sets, they’re all around $25 for a 16-piece collection (4 sets of a dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, and mug.)
- Target has a few other great stoneware dinnerware products available, especially if you’re looking for something that looks more rustic. Check out the Gibson Select line, specifically the Tequesta or Tocata sets if you want to add a little Southwestern flair to your dining room.
Walmart is known for having a huge selection of goods in their physical stores, and their website obviously is no different. They have the same Corelle products that Target has, at roughly the same prices, but also have a lot of brands that Target does not.
- Target does have some Gibson lines, like the Select collection, but Walmart also has the Gibson Home Soho collection, a wonderful dark red & black set of square plates. A lot of the products I’ve highlighted so far are either white or colorful, so this set provides a nice contrast. And, it’s almost 25% off, being sold for just $29.99
- Most of the dinnerware sets at other retailers are 16-piece collections – enough for four place settings. Walmart is one of the retailers offering bigger collections. Check out the 10 Strawberry Street Nova Banquet collection, with everything you need to set a table for 6 people, including amenities like serving dishes.
- Getting back to flatware, Walmart also offers much bigger sets than Target or Amazon. If you need to serve a lot of people at once, or just avoid doing dishes for a while, check out the Cambridge Pinnacle 72-piece collection. They’re mirrored steel, so look very nice, and come with a caddy to help keep them organized in your drawer.
Obviously, these aren’t all of the Cyber Monday deals out there. Smaller outlets are likely participating in the tradition, and Amazon, Target, and Walmart have a lot more variety of products than what I wrote about here. But these are the most distinctive Cyber Monday dinnerware sales, either because the prices are exceptionally low, or the products exceptionally high quality. Plus, if you’re looking to buy something on Cyber Monday, finding deals at major retailers can help simplify your shopping, something we all need when trying to figure out holiday sales.
