5. Aim to save 25 – 35% on kitchen appliances during Home Depot’s 2021 Black Friday.
Home Depot has other sales throughout the year, like Spring Black Friday, and Memorial Day. But you can get the best deals during early Black Friday, for savings of 25% to 43% on certain brands like Samsung and GE. Here are a couple of deals we love in 2021:
Compare to the sale price of $1699, or 15% off during Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday
Compare to the sale price of $250, or 19% off during Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday
Since Home Depot Black Friday prices start Nov. 7 and run through Cyber Week, there’s no need to wait until actual Black Friday to save money.
TIP: If you buy appliances during Home Depot Black Friday, be sure to check for rebates at The Home Depot Rebate center that can help you save more.
6. Get a $5 off $50 purchase coupon when you join Home Depot’s email list.
Once you submit your email address at HomeDepot.com, a “$5 off your next $50 purchase” coupon will land in your inbox.
Plus, you’ll get alerts for Home Depot’s Special Deal of the Day. Plan your big shopping trips around this if you miss Black Friday sales.
7. Avoid small kitchen appliances, landscaping and cleaning supplies, and paint during Home Depot’s Black Friday.
Skip buying small appliances like a KitchenAid stand mixer or air fryer. Although the Home Depot Black Friday ad may include sale prices on these items, you’re better off shopping at stores like Kohl’s or Target.
Compare to Kohl’s KitchenAid Artisan 5-quart stand mixer (
reg. $379.99) $279.99 sale price
Final price: $279.99, plus $75 Kohl’s Cash (making it only $15 more than Home Depot’s Black Friday price)
Use RedCard for 5% off
Final price: $189.99 or $1 more than Home Depot’s Black Friday price
Buy landscaping, cleaning supplies, and building materials during Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday sale, because they don’t typically mark these types of items down during Black Friday.
For paint, you’re better off shopping during three-day weekend sales like Memorial Day, Presidents’ Day, and Fourth of July. Plan ahead to save around $5 per gallon and 30% on exterior paints. Paint doesn’t even make Home Depot’s Black Friday ad.
8. Best things to buy during Home Depot Black Friday: power tools.
Year after year I’ve also seen DeWalt, Ryobi, Makita, and Milwaukee power tools kits on sale that are often part of a Buy 1, Get 1 free promotion. For example:
Buy 1 DEWALT 20-Volt MAX 2-Pack 4.0Ah and 6.0Ah batteries with charger and bag (
reg $219.99) $199 sale price and get one free tool from the list below:
- DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Cordless Brushless Reciprocating Saw (reg. $129)
- DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Cordless Brushless 6-1/2 inch Circular Saw (reg. $129)
- DEWALT 20-Volt MAX XR Cordless Brushless Jigsaw (reg. $199)
- DEWALT 20-Volt MAX XR Cordless Brushless 3/8 in. Compact Impact Wrench (reg. $169)
Compare to Lowe’s buy one DEWALT 20-Volt MAX Brushless Tool ($279 – $349) sale price and get one DEWALT MAX 8.0Ah battery without a charger or bag (reg. $199).

11. Get free shipping on orders over $45.
You’ll get Home Depot free shipping on all orders over $45 with two-day delivery. This won’t apply to everything, so you won’t get free shipping on gift cards or anything with size/weight restrictions.

12. Check inventory and locate products with the Home Depot app before you shop in store.
Instead of wasting time searching for items in store during the Black Friday sale at Home Depot, use the HD app to check inventory and locate the aisle and bay (shelf) where you can find the stuff you want.

13. Use discounted Home Depot gift cards from Gift Card Granny or Raise for an additional discount.
Buy a discounted digital gift card for less than the face value, and use it like cash within minutes after you purchase it. For more savings, combine your discounted Home Depot gift card with Black Friday sales.
