The Best Meal Delivery Deals for Black Friday 2022 – CNET

There’s a good chance you’ve got some serious cooking — and eating — ahead of you this month. Thanksgiving through the end of the year doesn’t usually bode well for that diet, but keeping healthy prepared meals and easy meal kits on hand can help weather the storm. And the timing to stock up on good eats couldn’t be better since all the top brands are launching wildly cheap Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on meal delivery.

Some of the best meal delivery deals for Black Friday include our favorites like Fresh N Lean, EveryPlate, Goldbelly and Freshly. There are also some excellent deals and discounts on premium meat delivery and online grocery services, too. Each deal is different but most amount to some seriously cheap meals that are either ready to eat (prepared meals) or preportioned and ready to cook (meal kits.)

We’ve scoured the web to find the best meal delivery deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And check back as we’ll continue to update this story as new meal delivery deals go live.

Best meal delivery deals for Black Friday


Freshly sends fresh (get it?) meals to your door and has a ton of recipe options to choose from each week from lean and healthy to heartier comfort food. I tried the brand’s premade meals and like them a whole bunch — full review here. If you want to give yourself or a loved one a break from cooking, Freshly has a Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal, both of which are good for $175 in total savings. 

  • Black Friday: From Nov. 7 through Nov. 26, save $175 with the code BLACKFRIDAY22
  • Cyber Monday: From Nov. 28 through Dec. 3, save $175 with the code CYBERMONDAY22


EveryPlate is already our pick as the best meal-kit service for families on a budget, but it’s bordering on ridiculously cheap when you sign up for Black Friday. Depending on the meal plan you choose, you’ll score up to 73% off of EveryPlate’s already cheap meal kits. That’s about $1.49 per serving for your first delivery. You’ll also get 28% off the next two deliveries.

You won’t see a ton of haute cuisine in EveryPlate’s weekly menu but plenty of satisfying dinners for the cold weather ahead. I tried its pork sloppy joes and its chicken and linguine in a tomato cream sauce. All the meals I made were great, easy to prepare and, best of all, light on the wallet. Read our EveryPlate review.


OK, so ButcherBox isn’t exactly a meal delivery service, but you can certainly make some excellent meals with what this online butcher service sends in its monthly boxes. ButcherBox is an online meat subscription service specializing in Australian grass-fed beef. But you can also have heritage pork and organic chicken in your monthly box depending on the subscription you pick.

Customers who sign up during ButcherBox’s Black Friday sales event — Monday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 27 — will receive two 10-ounce ribeyes in each delivery box they receive for one year. From Black Friday through Sunday, Nov. 27, ButcherBox will also offer an additional $20 off a customer’s first box if they use the code RIBEYE. For customers who sign up on Cyber Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 30, they will receive free wings in every box they order for the lifetime of their subscription. 

Thrive Market

Thrive Market is less of a meal kit or prepared meal service and more of a specialty online market with excellent snacks, pantry staples, beauty supplies, pet food and loads more. Thrive has a $5 monthly membership fee but if you have a taste for high-end groceries or seek organic foods, you won’t likely find them cheaper than on Thrive. Plus, Thrive Market will price match anything you do find cheaper at another retailer.

Order from Thrive Market in November and you’ll get 30% off your first shipment of groceries.  

So which meal delivery service is the best? 

I’ve tried most of them and they’re all pretty solid, with differences to consider depending on your budget, diet, taste and kitchen skill level. You can check out CNET’s roundups of the best meal-kit delivery services and best healthy food delivery services for a more detailed, er, taste. And remember, nearly all of these meal-kit companies let you pause or cancel anytime, so the risk and commitment when signing up for a meal-kit service is minimal.

Whether you’re looking for ways to eat healthily, learn to cook new recipes or just make fewer trips to the grocery store this winter, a healthyversatile and budget-friendly meal delivery deal can help you do it on the cheap.

These offers were valid at the time of publication, but they can end at any time and may be restricted by geography and other cookie-based conditions in your browser. If you don’t see a deal populate, try in a new window or private browser. In the meantime, if you’ve already tried one or more of these, tell me which ones and what you liked or didn’t like.

My advice: Take advantage of each and every one of these offers (making sure to pause or cancel after, unless you want to continue). You can see which service you like best and get super cheap takeout-style meals for weeks at a time.

Do meal kit sign-up deals have commitments?

Nope. Virtually all of them allow you to pause or cancel any time just in case you don’t love it, so there’s almost no risk after the deal is up. Although you may have to unsubscribe from their email blasts. The point is, most brands just want you to try out the meals and see if you dig them and those brands are willing to make it very easy (and cheap) to do that. To make things easier, we already tried the top meal kits and meal delivery services so you’ll know exactly what to expect and you can pick the best food delivery deal for you and your tastes.
