It’s the season of giving, but there’s a group of people who have been giving non-stop for 10 straight months this year: frontline workers. This pandemic has been hard for all of us, but nurses, doctors, teachers, first responders and essential store workers have sacrificed more than most — especially nurses with grueling long hours and quarantining away from their own families to take care of others. And in this busy season of gift shopping and extra to-dos, many retailers are taking the time to say thank you and acknowledge those in the healthcare industry, medical researchers, postal workers and beyond with incredible deals even better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday. And it’s just for frontline workers. We’ve rounded up the best savings and promotions, from 50 percent off at The North Face to 40 percent off select appliances and tech at Samsung. If you’re on the frontlines, thank you for everything this year. We hope this list helps take the stress out of your holiday shopping and we hope you can treat yourself to something special, too.
