If you’ve been waiting for bigger discounts on American Eagle mom jeans, Black Friday 2024 is the time to shop. In 2023, you could get 50% off the whole collection, $25 hoodies (reg. $59.95), and seven for $30 Aerie undies. The deals were extended for a couple of days after Cyber Monday.

In 2023, American Eagle’s main Black Friday/Cyber Monday event started with their Friendsgiving Sale on Nov. 17, though this first day was an early access sale for Real Rewards members. The sale opened to the general public on Nov. 18. We expect a similar pattern to follow in 2024.

KCL predicts the next American Eagle Black Friday Sale will begin Friday, Nov. 22, 2024.


American Eagle hasn’t officially announced the next date for their Black Friday (aka Friendsgiving) sale, but based on what they've done in recent years, we here at KCL predict that it’ll take place between Friday, Nov. 22, and Saturday, Nov. 30, 2024.

How do we make our prediction?

In recent years, American Eagle has held their Black Friday starting a whole week early — running from the Friday before Thanksgiving through the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We anticipate they’ll continue that pattern in 2024.

1. The American Eagle Black Friday Friendsgiving sale was extended for an extra day in 2023.

There was no ad drop released.

Is American Eagle closed on Thanksgiving 2024?

American Eagle stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, but you can still shop for Black Friday deals online.

What time does American Eagle open on Black Friday?

American Eagle stores will likely open for their normal hours on Black Friday, starting at 10 a.m. ET. Be sure to call your local American Eagle or Aerie store for the most accurate holiday hours.

2. American Eagle usually has three “waves” of Black Friday deals. In 2023, the first ran from Nov. 1 until Nov. 3 at 5 a.m. ET.

American Eagle usually sticks to the same schedule for their Black Friday and November sales. You’ll find deals throughout the whole month, but American Eagle won’t promote the early deals as part of their official Black Friday sale. Finally, American Eagle drops its Friendsgiving Sale one week before Black Friday, with deals running through the end of the month and beyond.

3. The American Eagle Black Friday deals are expected to change every few days through Cyber Monday.

The AE Holiday Gift Guide debuted on Nov. 1 last year, and with it came some pretty notable discounts. These deals were short-lived though. Many expired on Nov. 3. Think of this first wave of savings as a holiday shopping kick-off.
