If home improvement is on your list for Black Friday 2022, then you’ll definitely want to make time for Lowe’s Black Friday sale.

Black Friday at Lowe’s is when we’ve seen some of the best deals on Craftsmen tool sets and power tools, Christmas trees, and Christmas decor. I know that because I’ve researched the past three years of Lowe’s Black Friday sale data — and history is a great guide for finding the best deals of the season.

Below I’ve included all of the essential information you need to start making your Black Friday 2022 game plan, starting with the next sale:

 

1. Lowe’s Black Friday sale has three phases: Season of Savings, Pre-Black Friday, and Black Friday.

Black Friday at Lowe’s used to start no earlier than Thanksgiving Day. That changed in 2020, when Lowe’s included Black Friday deals in what they called a “Season of Savings” sale that began as early as Oct. 22.

In 2021, Lowe’s Seasons of Savings started on Oct. 28, but it still featured Black Friday deals on large appliances, which were 15 – 22% off regular price. Lowe’s then moved into their Pre-Black Friday sale from Nov. 18 – 25.

But if you aren’t shopping for large appliances, the best strategy is to wait for the third phase of Lowe’s Black Friday, a weeklong sale that starts on Thanksgiving, which features the best sales on tools, Christmas trees and decor, plus doorbuster sales on poinsettias and wreaths.

 

2. Lowe’s Black Friday 2022 sales are expected to start by Halloween.

As you can see, Lowe’s hasn’t had much consistency over the past three years with their Black Friday sales start dates, which makes this one a little bit tougher to predict. But given the early starts in 2020 and 2021, I’ll be watching for Lowe’s Black Friday deals as early as Halloween.

In both years, Lowe’s made sure to get the word out through press releases and ad drops around October 20.

Like I said above, though: Outside of large appliances, the best Black Friday deals I saw in 2021 all went live on or after Thanksgiving.

 

3. Lowes.com has all the same Black Friday deals except for doorbusters that drop after Thanksgiving.

The only reason to shop in stores during Lowe’s Black Friday is if you’re looking for doorbuster deals available on actual Black Friday. This is when we’ve see the best deals on holiday items like poinsettias (we’ve seen one-quart poinsettias go for $1.50).

4. Lowe’s poinsettias dropped to $5 each year during Black Friday.

Some of the best value we saw on holiday decor in 2020 and 2021 was on actual Black Friday and in store only at Lowe’s. That’s when we found two-quart poinsettias for $5 each (reg. $10).

 

 

5. Lowe’s DeWalt tools are BOGO free during Black Friday week.

In 2021 Lowe’s ran a BOGO free DeWalt tool sale during the week of Black Friday (the free tool had to have a value of $199 or less).

Although this deal ran as early as three weeks before Black Friday, I found that it applied to a larger amount of DeWalt tools — including cordless saws, power tools, and blowers — as we approached Thanksgiving week.

 

6. Lowe’s artificial Christmas tree prices dropped to $79.98 during Black Friday 2021.

For most of the holiday season in 2021, Lowe’s only had the best prices on artificial Christmas trees that were under 5′ tall.

But between Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021, they were selling pre-lit, 7.5′ artificial trees for $79.98 — that’s 65% off regular price. That’s right in line with the best prices we saw on similarly-sized trees.

By the way, if you’re looking for info on the best artificial Christmas tree prices, you’ll need to check our guide highlighting the most affordable trees in any size.
