For the past three years, Lowe’s Black Friday has easily been the longest sale that Lowe’s puts on all year. And for their 2022 Black Friday sale, that trend is definitely held up! Last year, Lowe’s announced an online-only early Black Friday sale that started on Oct. 27, then launched their first set of Black Friday deals on Nov. 14. And fresh Black Friday deals popped up at Lowe’s every week in November!

I dug through three years’ worth of sales data and the top questions we get asked about Lowe’s Black Friday to give you all the best tips to save. In short: The best deals of the season are always the ones Lowe’s drops during their main Black Friday events.

I’ll cover all the things you need to know to save the most during Lowe’s Black Friday sale in 2023. Be sure to download the Krazy Coupon Lady app and “favorite” Lowe’s for the best tips and deals.

1. When did the Lowe’s Black Friday 2022 sale start?

The start dates for the Lowe's Black Friday sale in the past four years.

The Lowe’s Black Friday sale — aka the Lowe’s Black Friday Month sale, as they’re calling it — started in late October! Early Black Friday deals kicked off on Oct. 27, 2022, with new deals dropping each week. Lowe’s launched their first official set of Black Friday deals on Nov. 14, 2022, and the rest of the deals dropped on Nov. 17 in the Black Friday sale ad.

Here are some of the most popular deals you could grab:

Was Lowe’s open on Thanksgiving?

Nope. Lowe’s is one of the many stores closed on Thanksgiving. But you could still shop their Black Friday deals online.


2. When did the Lowe’s Black Friday ad drop in 2022?

Even though some of Lowe’s early Black Friday deals went live in late October with their pre-Black Friday ad, the official Lowe’s Black Friday ad dropped on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022.

TIP: One thing you won’t get from Lowe’s is free shipping. For the past three years (2022 included), you still have to meet the $45 minimum on qualifying orders to earn Lowe’s free shipping.


3. Did Lowe’s have early Black Friday deals in 2022?

You bet! Early Black Friday Lowe’s deals dropped on Oct. 27, 2022, with online-only savings on Christmas decor, tools, home improvement, appliances, and more. The Google Nest Learning Smart Thermostat with Wi-Fi Compatibility was just $179 (reg. $249) through Nov. 30. Plus, there were new deals arriving each week.

Here were some of the best deals we saw:

4. What were the best in-store Black Friday deals at Lowe’s?

The most popular deals at Lowe’s have always been their doorbusters that have only been available on the day of Black Friday. In 2022, Lowe’s had 1-quart poinsettias on sale 2 for $3 (in-store only) from Nov. 24 – 30. Plus, 2-quart poinsettias were also 2 for $12 (in-store only).

dBlack Friday weekend at Lowe’s has also been when we typically saw the biggest savings on tool packages and Christmas trees (more on those deals below).


5. What is Lowe’s return policy during the holidays?

The Lowe's Customer Service desk and Return counter.

Lowe’s return policy allows shoppers to get a full refund on most returns made within 90 days — even if you don’t have a store receipt.

Exceptions to the 90-day return policy include holiday items, which must be returned during the current holiday (for example: if you buy a wreath or an artificial tree during Black Friday, you only have until Dec. 26 to return it).


6. Do Lowe’s for Pros members get any special Black Friday deals or freebies?

Why, yes! Lowe’s has a special “Lowe’s for Pros” membership program for professionals who buy their tools and supplies from the warehouse. During the month of November, Lowe’s offers special tool deals to their Pro contractor members, which they call PRO-vember. Cute.

You’ll have to fill out a short form with your business and personal information to sign up, but once you do, you’ll have access to exclusive offerings, like the deals that ran Nov. 24 – 30, 2022:

  • Dewalt 16-piece Bi-Metal Reciprocating Saw Blade Set, $19.98 (reg. $29.98)
  • Dewalt 1/2-in Brushless Cordless Drill, $99 (reg. $159)
  • 3X MVP points on Little Giant 17-foot Leveler Aluminum Telescoping Multiposition Ladder
  • Metabo HPT The Tank 1.3-HP 6-gallon 200-PSI Portable Electric Air Compressor, $199 (reg. $249)



7. Will Lowe’s price match with other retailers?

Unfortunately, Lowe’s won’t price match against other retailers during Black Friday. Lowe’s explicitly states in their price match policy that they won’t match seasonal sale prices from other retailers, and it doesn’t get more seasonal than Black Friday.


8. Can I get Christmas trees at Lowe’s delivered for free?

No need to browse a Christmas tree lot or even browse Lowe’s selection of live trees; the store will deliver Christmas trees right to your door with no delivery fee! The only requirements are that you spend at least $45 and live in an area with free local delivery from Lowe’s.

If you’re looking for an even deeper discount, consider the Black Friday deals on artificial trees at Lowe’s.

Prices of artificial trees are only expected to rise as we get closer to Black Friday, so act quickly before that happens. Here is the best deal we’ve seen so far for Lowe’s artificial Christmas trees:

9. Can I stack other coupons and discounts on Black Friday deals at Lowe’s?

A person scanning an item at the Lowe's self checkout scanner.

Your Lowe’s discounts won’t help much during Black Friday, as Lowe’s discounts only apply to regularly priced items, and Lowe’s doesn’t allow coupon stacking.

We love that Lowe’s offers military veterans and their own employees 10% off everything in the store every day, but during Black Friday, those discounts aren’t really going to make an impact.

And trust me, if the Black Friday deal you’re seeing is less than 10% off regular price — it’s not really a deal.

10. How much can I save on artificial Christmas trees at Lowe’s during this sale?

You can save as much as 65% by shopping for artificial Christmas trees at Lowe’s during Black Friday.

For most of the holiday season in 2021, Lowe’s had the best prices on only the artificial Christmas trees that were under five feet tall. But between Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021, they were selling pre-lit, 7.5-foot artificial trees for $79.98 — a whopping 65% off regular price. That’s right in line with the best prices we saw on similarly sized trees.


11. When will I see deals on Lowe’s DeWalt tools?

We’ve seen great deals on DeWalt tools during the Lowe’s Black Friday sale. Here are some smaller-ticket items we’ve seen:

Just like last year, we’re seeing BOGO free DeWalt tools for Lowe’s Black Friday sale. Here are a few of the hot items that come with a free gift:

I expect we’ll see a greater variety of DeWalt tools on sale during Thanksgiving week — including more cordless saws, power tools, and blowers.



12. When are poinsettias at Lowe’s the cheapest?

Some of the best deals on holiday decor are in stores at Lowe’s during their entire Black Friday sale. That’s when you can find 2-quart poinsettias at Lowe’s for $6 each (regularly $6.98) and 1-quart poinsettias for $1.50 each (reg. $2.98). These sale prices were only valid Nov. 24 – 30 and only while supplies lasted.


13. Can I get a Lowe’s price adjustment on my Black Friday purchase?

A person's hand holding up their Lowe's black friday return receipt at the Lowe's return counter.

Yes! If you don’t want to battle the crowds at Lowe’s, this will be especially good news. Lowe’s will make price adjustments on any item for up to 30 days after you buy it. So if you buy a large appliance less than 30 days before Black Friday, and then you see the price drop during the sale, you’ll still get to reap the savings.

Getting a Lowe’s price adjustment is pretty simple as long as you keep your receipt or pay with a credit card (Lowe’s can look up past purchases with your card number).

Just show a Lowe’s manager proof that the price you originally paid for an item is more expensive than the current price at Lowe’s. Proof can be an ad printout or a photo showing the lower price.


14. How much are Christmas wreaths at Lowe’s?

Like the deals we saw on poinsettias at Lowe’s, the deals on wreaths at Lowe’s happen on actual Black Friday. I know the wreaths at my local Lowe’s store always sell out quickly, so get there early if you’re trying to get a wreath or two for $15 each. Here was the deal that happened last year (Nov. 24 – 30, 2022):

  • Buy 2 Fresh Cut Christmas Wreaths for $30, special value price (in stores only)
