Gap Black Friday is a simple affair. It’s almost always a straight percentage off, with a Cyber Monday discount that outshines whatever is offered during the Black Friday sale.

Gap Cyber Monday is really where it’s at for the biggest discounts, but you’re taking a risk with lower inventory, since it’s at the tail end of the Black Friday sale. Either way, with savings like these, there’s not much to complain about.

1. Expect the Gap Black Friday ad to drop Nov. 21, 2022.

Will Gap stores be closed on Thanksgiving 2022?

Yes, Gap closes their brick and mortar stores on Thanksgiving Day, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop shopping. Gap.com is always open.

What time does Gap open on Black Friday?

Plan to hit up Gap on Black Friday at 8 a.m. In the past, this is when stores have opened, but double check your local store, especially if it’s inside a mall. It may be subject to mall opening hours in that case.

When does Gap Black Friday start?

The Gap Black Friday sale will start on Tuesday, Nov. 22. That’s when you’ll find discounts of 50% off everything, online and in stores. Remember that Gap Factory stores don’t have a Black Friday sale (see Tip #9 for more on that).

2. The Gap Black Friday sale is 50% off everything.

A sign in front of Gap that reads, "Black Friday 50% off everything.

Technically, there are two types of sales. It’s 50% off “Really Big Deals,” which are select items with that markdown. But everything else is 40% off + 10% off taken at checkout, which is why I’m summarizing it as 50% off everything — one way or another.


3. Gap Cyber Monday is 80% off everything.

Although you do take a risk with inventory being picked over, if you can wait on something, it’ll be a whopping 80% off on Cyber Monday.

The actual sale is 60% off everything, plus an extra 20% taken off at checkout.

In 2022, Gap Cyber Monday will likely start Monday, Nov. 29 and end at 11:59 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Nov. 30.



4. Does Gap allow coupons on Black Friday?

Gap is very careful not to offer any valid coupons during Black Friday because their percentage-off discount is so steep, so it’s not something you’ll likely have to deal with.


5. Spending less than $50? Use free store pickup to avoid paying for shipping.

During Black Friday, you can get free shipping with any purchase of $50 or more. If your total doesn’t quite reach that amount, opt for free store pickup if possible. You’ll have up to five days to pick your order up, which means you could avoid all the Black Friday traffic if you want to!


6. Or get completely free shipping during Gap Cyber Monday.

Again, you risk items being picked over, but another benefit to shopping Cyber Monday at Gap is free shipping.



7. Load up on $4 cozy socks for stocking stuffers.

You’ll see a number of “doorbuster” deals at Gap, including $4 cozy socks, $20 sweaters, $15 pajamas, etc. These aren’t eligible for the extra-percent-off discount during Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Of these deals, the $4 cozy socks are the best value.


8. Shop Gap sale items for the deepest discounts.

Sure, you can get $79.95 jeans for just under $40 with the 50% off Black Friday discount, and that’s great. But why not do better? Shop Gap.com and tap on “Sale.” There you’ll find tons of stuff with markdowns. Apply your 50% off to the sale prices! This goes for Cyber Monday sales too.
