Over the past few years, early Black Friday sales have taken on a whole new meaning as they creep up toward the beginning of November, and some are even happening as early as October. Yep, what once was a holiday shopping weekend has now expanded into a holiday shopping month — or at some stores, a holiday shopping month and a half. You’ll never hear us complain about drawn-out discounted shopping opportunities — more time to save.

Lowe’s is a bit more erratic in its Black Friday schedule. Based on years past, we’re placing their early Black Friday sale on Nov. 17 through Nov. 23, though it may run earlier.

Lowe’s has great early Black Friday sales for everyone, but the best ones are reserved for Lowe’s for Pros members. In past years, some of the best Lowe’s Black Friday sales have included:


6. Home Depot Early Black Friday Deals

Home Depot Black Friday sales tend to get sweeter as the month rolls on, but you’ll be able to find early Black Friday deals. We’re anticipating these will start on Nov. 16 for online and in-person customers.

You’ll want to hold out for actual Black Friday if you’re trying to get your hands on things like poinsettias or Christmas decorations. But early Black Friday is a good time to shop for appliances. Some of the best deals from last year included:



7. Macy’s Early Black Friday Deals

Macy’s early Black Friday sales can start as early as Nov. 1. While sales can run all month, we’re expecting to see a big push from Nov. 22 through Nov. 23 this year, which are the two days before Thanksgiving.

Some of the best Black Friday deals from Macy’s are their “Bonus Buys” from the jewelry department. For example, last year you could get diamond earrings (regularly $200) for just $29.99 when you made any $25 purchase.

If you’re shopping online, you can only claim one of the bonus buys. If you’re shopping in person, you can claim up to 10.

As far as early Black Friday deals go, in the past we’ve seen:


8. Sam’s Club Early Black Friday Deals

Sam’s Club runs its early Black Friday deals super early — we’re projecting an Oct. 26 start date for 2022.

During the lead-up to actual Black Friday, you’ll mostly see grocery deals. But you can also find great deals on electronics, kitchen appliances, and outdoor playsets during November Savings Weekends. Here are some examples of great early Black Friday deals from Sam’s Club last year:


9. Costco Early Black Friday Deals

We’re expecting to see Dick’s early Black Friday sales launch Nov. 18 this year.

You’ll find both smart buys and rip-offs during Dick’s Sporting Goods Black Friday sales. Some items you’ll want to purchase during the shopping season, while others you’ll want to hold off on for a couple of months to find a lower price.

Some of the smart Black Friday deals we saw last year included:


11. JCPenney Early Black Friday Deals

JCPenney does run early Black Friday deals — but they’re online only. Even though they’re limited to online shoppers, you have a long time to take advantage of them. This year, expect to see these online deals starting Nov. 1 through Nov. 23.

Hands down, the most popular online deal last year was on Home Expressions washcloths and towels. You could get them for:

You’re also likely to see some great deals on kitchen appliances during JCPenney Black Friday sales.



12. Ulta Early Black Friday Deals

Ulta technically does have an early Black Friday sale, but it doesn’t start that early. In 2022, we’re expecting it to run from Nov. 20 through Nov. 23 — just a few days before Thanksgiving on Nov. 24.

Some of our favorite 2021 Ulta Black Friday deals were:


13. Bath & Body Works Early Black Friday Deals

Bath & Body Works is another store that has truncated early Black Friday sales. We’re anticipating the window will be even shorter than Ulta: Nov. 21 through Nov. 23.

To be perfectly real with you, you’re better off waiting to shop later in the week. Bath & Body Works Black Friday sales get cumulatively better the closer you get to actual Black Friday on Nov. 25.

But you’ll start seeing the “Buy 3 Get 3 Free” sale starting on Nov. 21.


14. Victoria’s Secret Early Black Friday Deals

Victoria’s Secret gives you deals for a little longer. Its early Black Friday sales are expected to run from Nov. 18 through Nov. 23. You may be able to get even earlier access by signing up for the Pink Nation app and Victoria’s Secret app.

Walmart’s early Black Friday deals are known as Deals for Days and are available both online and in person. But the online deals typically start a day or two sooner. This year, we’re predicting early Walmart Black Friday sales to start Nov. 2 and run through Nov. 11.

Then there will be a break until the real Black Friday sales start on Nov. 23.
