The Home Depot Black Friday Sale 2022 is a favorite among tool-loving DIYers and folks wanting to buy dirt-cheap holiday decor. How long do Black Friday sales at last at Home Depot? Well, ever since 2020, Home Depot has turned a days-long sale into an event lasting 2 – 3 weeks. But for the really good stuff, you have to wait until the main sale starts on Nov. 24.

I’ve studied and tracked Home Depot’s Black Friday sales from the past three years, and it’s helped me stir up a solid 2022 strategy based on what we’ve seen before.

Below, I’ll highlight how long the deals will last and how to find the best deals on tools, Christmas decor, and appliances. Plus, I’ll break down all of The Home Depot’s return policy lingo so you can avoid any unwanted surprises this holiday season.

1. The second Home Depot Black Friday ad dropped Nov. 23, 2022.

Home Depot dropped their first ad with early Black Friday deals on Nov. 3, a bit earlier than everyone was expecting. Most prices were valid for the whole month, but some of these early deals expired Nov. 23.

The second Black Friday ad dropped Nov. 23, with the whole she-bang as far as Home Depot Black Friday deals go.

Is Home Depot open on Thanksgiving?

No, Home Depot stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2022. But you can still shop all the available Black Friday deals online.

What are Home Depot’s Black Friday hours?

Home Depot stores will open at 6 a.m. on Black Friday 2022. We expect them to close at 9 p.m.

 

2. The official Home Depot Black Friday Sale started on Nov. 24, 2022.

Prior to the pandemic, Home Depot’s Black Friday sale would start online on Thanksgiving Day and last until Home Depot Cyber Monday.

In 2022, Home Depot released their early Black Friday deals in early November, but the rest of the deals went live online on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 24, 2022. The deals will run through the end of the month, and you’ll be able to shop the Black Friday sale online and in stores (except on Thanksgiving Day itself).

 

3. Home Depot’s Black Friday sale prices usually last a couple of weeks.

Although The Home Depot Black Friday sale only lasted for one weekend in 2019, ever since 2020 they’ve stretched out the event to last for 2.5 – 3.5 weeks. But the best deals still hit during actual Black Friday and a few days after; that’s when Home Depot runs those must-have doorbuster deals on poinsettias and Christmas decor.

 

4. The $2 poinsettias are always Home Depot’s best Black Friday deal — when they’re 60% off.

For the past two years, Home Depot’s Black Friday doorbuster has been the 1.25-qt potted poinsettia for $2 — regularly priced at $4.98. The doorbuster Home Depot poinsettias are always the No. 1 deal I look for during Black Friday at Home Depot, and it’s back for 2022!

This deal is in-store only Nov. 25 – 30, and while supplies last. There’s a limit of 20 per person.

 

5. Get fresh-cut Home Depot Christmas trees delivered for free during the Black Friday sale.

When you buy live, fresh-cut Home Depot Christmas trees from HomeDepot.com in 2022, you won’t have to pay any shipping fees — they’ll handle Christmas tree delivery right to your doorstep for free!

 

6. Subscribe to emails from The Home Depot Garden Club and Special Buy alerts to earn 10% off coupons.

Home Depot makes both dollar-off and percent-off coupons available if you do any of the following:

The email and text alerts are useful for getting updates on each new Home Depot Special Buy of the Day, while Home Depot Garden Club members will receive tips, special promotions, and the occasional freebie.

All of these coupons will be delivered to you via email, except for the text sign-up coupon (that one goes to your phone, with about 10 texts sent each month).

 

 

7. Shop appliances early during their Black Friday sale to save up to 32% — then check for a rebate to save even more.

Home Depot has other big sales throughout the year like Home Depot Spring Black Friday and the Home Depot Memorial Day sale. But you can get the best deals on a wider variety of large appliances during their Black Friday sales. Think savings of around 30% on certain brands like Samsung and LG.

Since Home Depot Black Friday prices have already started and run through Cyber Monday, there’s no need to wait until later sales to save money.

TIP: If you buy appliances during Home Depot Black Friday, be sure to enter your zip code on their website to check for a Home Depot Rebate that could save you even more.

 

8. For mulch, patio items, and paint, wait for The Home Depot Memorial Day Sale or The Home Depot Spring sale.

For paint, patio furniture, and patio pavers, you’re better off shopping during three-day weekend sales at Home Depot 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 it into The Home Depot Black Friday ad.

Buy mulch, flowers, and basic vegetable planters during Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday sale because they don’t typically mark these types of items down during Black Friday.

 

9. Home Depot’s Price Match Guarantee doesn’t apply during Black Friday.

Does Home Depot price match competitors on Black Friday? Nope. They don’t price match on Black Friday, Spring Black Friday, or during other seasonal promotions, so don’t even ask (read the policy here).

 

10. Get free shipping on Home Depot orders over $45 on Black Friday.

You’ll get free two-day shipping on most orders over $45 from HomeDepot.com. This doesn’t apply to everything, as you won’t get free shipping on gift cards or anything with size/weight restrictions.

There’s also free standard delivery on all appliance purchases of $396 or more.

 

11. Use The Home Depot app to plan your in-store Black Friday shopping route before you shop.

Instead of wasting time searching for items in store on Black Friday, use The Home Depot app (iOS / Android) to check inventory and locate the aisle and exact bay (shelf) where you can find the stuff you want.

TIP: You can search by voice or image in The Home Depot app to save even more time while you shop in store.

 

 

12. Keep your Home Depot receipt — you’ll need it for any return within 90 days and also for The Home Depot survey.

Home Depot allows up to 90 days after your purchase to return any items — but only 30 days if you’re returning furniture, area rugs, gas-powered equipment, generators, or consumer electronics.

In 2021, Home Depot updated their return policy to require a receipt or proof of purchase for any return. For a Home Depot return without receipt, they can look up your transaction using your credit or debit card, or even a check — but only within 30 days of your purchase. They also only accept new and unopened items (with exceptions for damaged/defective merchandise).

If you have a Home Depot credit card, you don’t need your receipt; they can track down your purchases for up to a year.

The tightest return window applies to returns of major appliances (think: refrigerators, washers, dryers, and even some microwaves). You’ll only have 48 hours after you leave the store or get it delivered to identify any damage or defects and make your return.

TIP: Fill out this survey using the user ID and password on the bottom of your Home Depot receipt for a chance to win $5,000. It’s a few questions about your shopping experience, and Home Depot will randomly select one survey-taker four times a year.

 

13. Get 10% cash back when you shop with Ibotta.

If you’re planning on making some big purchases, definitely take advantage of Home Depot rebates. You can currently grab 10% cash back on online orders through Ibotta.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ibotta, it’s easy to use. You’ll have to create an account, but from there you simply search “Home Depot” on Ibotta’s homepage. Then click on the Home Depot link, and anything you buy will earn you cash back.

Even when the cash back percentage on Ibotta dips lower — I’ve seen it hover around 4% — it’ll at least cover your sales tax for a major purchase.

 

14. Save 1% – 3% on a Home Depot gift card from Raise.com.

Check out Raise.com if you’re looking to grab a Home Depot gift card on the cheap. Raise sells full-value gift cards for a discounted price, so your savings on the gift card are built into whatever you use it on.

For The Home Depot, expect anywhere from 1% – 3% off the normal price. Every dollar counts, right?
