Here are our top deals from the 2022 Carter’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale:

Here’s everything else we learned about Carter’s Cyber Monday sale to help you prepare for shopping in 2023.

1. We may not see a Carter’s Black Friday ad this year.

In 2021, Carter’s dropped their Black Friday ad on the first day of the sale, but in 2022 there was no Black Friday ad to be found. We saw lots of screenshots of their website and sales, but no physical or digital copy of an ad. We did receive a small postcard in the mail detailing their Black Friday sales and that they will have some Cyber Monday deals, but no physical ad in 2022.


Will Carter’s be closed on Thanksgiving 2023?

Carter’s will most likely be closed on Thanksgiving 2023. The only other day they’re closed is Christmas.


What time does Carter’s open on Black Friday?

Carter’s typically opens at 10 a.m. most days, but on Black Friday, we predict it’ll open at 7 a.m.


2. Carter’s Black Friday started the week before Thanksgiving.

Like a lot of retailers, Carter’s Black Friday begins much earlier than the actual Black Friday. In 2022, we saw deals drop on Nov. 16, a full 10 days before Black Friday. In 2021, it started eight days prior, while in 2020, it started 12 days prior. This year, we’re watching for sales to begin on November 15, 2023.


3. The Carter’s Black Friday sale is 50 – 60% off (almost) everything.

The past couple of years, Carter’s has offered 50 – 60% off, and we have no reason to believe 2023 won’t be the same. Although they say the deal is for “the entire site and store,” exclusions include some new arrivals, licensed apparel, doorbusters, clearance, and more. (Don’t worry, there’s still a ton to shop.)


4. These were our top sellers from 2021:

  • 2-Piece Adult Santa 100% Snug Fit Cotton PJs, $45
  • 2-Pack Cotton Cami Tanks, $14
  • 5-Pack Short-Sleeve Original Bodysuits, $4.54
  • Christmas Snap-Up Thermal Sleep & Play, $18
  • Black Leggings, $16



5. Carter’s also offers free shipping during Black Friday.

Typically, Carter’s offers free shipping on orders of $35 or more. That all changes during Black Friday, when they offer free shipping and save you $6 — which might otherwise be more than your actual order.


6. The deals continue after Black Friday.

Following past trends, we expect this year’s Black Friday sale to end November 24. If you did the math, you might have realized that’s the day of the real Black Friday. If you usually like to shop that weekend, there’s no need to panic. The deals will continue, along with some new ones.


7. Super Saturday is Nov. 25.

What makes Super Saturday different from Black Friday? Pretty much nothing except the name. But still, it’s more time to shop — though likely with less inventory.


8. Cyber Cheer should start Nov. 26.

Cyber Cheer, like Super Saturday, is basically an extension of Black Friday. Last year though, it came with a twist: 65% off Christmas pajamas and one more thing, which we’ll discuss below.


9. Expect access to exclusive styles.

There’s nothing better than a great deal — except for a great deal you can’t get anywhere else. Take, for example, $6 Cyber Cheer-exclusive Christmas pajama pants, $7+ Black Friday exclusive pajama sets, or free $34 blankets with your $50+ purchase.



10. Shop doorbusters starting at $5.


Carter’s is famous for their doorbusters, which are basically flash sales available for a limited time only and while supplies last. We expect to see $5 long-sleeve graphic tees, $8 fleece footies, and $12+ shoes and boots.


11. The Carter’s return policy is on your side.

A lot of retailers change their return policy during the winter to allow for post-holiday returns and exchanges, but Carter’s doesn’t have to because theirs is already pretty generous. Items can be returned or exchanged for the full purchase price if returned within 90 days of purchase as long as you have the original sales receipt, gift receipt, or packing slip. No receipt? You can still exchange the item for the current selling price.

Items purchased online can be returned by mail (for $6 shipping and handling) or at any Carter’s or OshKosh B’gosh retail or outlet store in the United States. That said, items purchased in store can only be returned in store.


12. Get your order faster and choose store or curbside pickup.

Don’t want to wait for your order? If you’re near a Carter’s store, you can choose to pick up your order within an hour in store or curbside — as long as they have the items you want in stock. Note: Curbside pickup is only available if you have the Carter’s app.


13. Spend enough and get $10 back.

If you’re a My Rewarding Moments member, which is the Carter’s loyalty program, you can earn one point for every dollar you spend. Once you spend $150 or earn 150 points, you get $10. But that’s not all: You can get extra points in the app, as well as choose your own double points day where you get two points for every dollar spent. Whether you want to shop now and hoard your rewards for Black Friday or earn a bunch during Black Friday, for Carter’s fans, it’s basically free money.


14. Sign up for emails to get an extra 20% off.

Retailers offering discounts in exchange for your email address is nothing new, but it’s still super valuable. Plus, you’ll be the first to know about stuff like sales and doorbusters, so it’s a win-win.
