Will Squishmallows be on sale during Five Below Black Friday?

While Squishmallows weren’t reduced in price compared to what they are year-round, they did have a new Squishmallow drop. In 2022 this release included nine new characters and one that was ultra rare.

That said, Squishmallows are available online at Five Below right now. The 4.5-inch Squishmallows are $4.50, and the 7-inch Squishmallows are $5.95. Considering how quickly inventory moves at this store, don’t wait to buy.

Don’t pay for shipping! Use free in-store pickup instead.

Five Below shipping is a $7.95 flat rate, which can really put a damper on your $5.95 Squishmallows purchase! Don’t bother with paying for shipping. Choose to pick up your items in store for free instead.

Most items are available to pick up the same day, and you’ll know if your item is eligible for pickup in-store because you’ll see the option during checkout.

Your item not eligible for free in-store pickup? You can get Instacart delivery as well if you must have your purchase sooner than the five to seven days it takes to ship to you. Note that there are fees for grocery delivery services like Instacart.

Five Below FAQ

​​Is everything under $5 at Five Below?

Not anymore. For 17 years, Five Below offered items for $1 – $5. But in 2019, they raised prices a bit. At first, the retailer said it would just be tech that would see a price increase, but looking through Five Below’s catalog, we can tell it’s a whole lot more than tech inching above that $5 threshold.

Does Five Below sell things over $5?

Yes. While some categories (like Beauty and Arts & Crafts) stick to the under five dollars label, others like Toys and Tech don’t. Toys average $5 – $7, and Tech reaches into the $25 range and rarely dips below $5.

Then there’s Five Beyond, which includes items that are well over $5 but don’t seem to exceed $25.
