If not overclocking loads then stick with the stock cooler.

No, you don't need an aftermarket cooler. The stock one will do its job just fine - that's what it was made and designed for. Cooling your CPU by a few extra degrees won't matter. Save your money.

Black Friday sales can be pretty nice, but they're not any nicer than the random deals scattered throughout the year. Black Friday just simply has a higher concentration of sales at a single time. For the best prices, you'll need to eye deal sites over the course of one or two months and slowly buy parts.

The only other possible reason is that aftermarket HSFs MAY be quieter, although I've never tested this theory myself and even then if you have other fans it may make little difference.

Yeah, if you're not overclocking and sound isn't an issue... don't worry about it: stock is totally fine.
