The Black Friday holy grail is finding that one big-ticket item that you need, for a price you can finally afford. For you, that might mean finding an affordable TV or an upgraded MacBook, but if you’re a parent, you know one of the most expensive items you need is a stroller. I’m a new(-ish) parent and I was floored by the cost of a good stroller when I started shopping for one. What I wish I’d had? A great sale to shop instead.
I didn’t have a sale (or the foresight to shop for a stroller during a major sale season), but you do, right now. Thule makes some of our favorite strollers, and most of them are on sale right now. Thule’s 20 percent off sale runs through Cyber Monday.

Thule Stroller Deals
Every single person in my family loves this stroller. The Thule Shine (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is the best city stroller I’ve tried. It’s compact enough to sit in your entryway, but sturdy enough to stand upright on its own. It’s easy to fold and to carry, although not so easy to get in an out of a sedan trunk (but that’s true for almost any stroller).
It has a fantastic shade that goes nice and low for when the sun is in baby’s eyes, and comes in a ton of cute colors to make your stroller feel a little more personalized. Thule also sells accessories for the Shine, like the bassinet attachment and all-weather cover, which are also on sale right now.
If you’re shopping for a jogging stroller, I recommend Thule’s Urban Glide 2 over other popular models. I love the cylinder-style hand break that sits in the middle of the handlebar, and the height is really nice height if you’re decidedly average-sized like myself (and you can angle it upward for taller folks, or lower for shorter).
Jogging strollers will always be bulky, but Thule’s Urban Glide was a little easier to handle both folded and unfolded than other strollers. Make sure you have a big trunk, though.
