1. Watch for Old Navy’s Black Friday ad to drop around Nov. 5.

Not to be left behind other retailers in 2020, Old Navy leaked their Black (they call it Big) Friday ad weeks early on Nov. 5. I expect them to again release this year’s ad during the first week in November.

 

2. Don’t expect Old Navy to open their doors on Thanksgiving Day (unless you count the last minute).

Like most other retailers, Old Navy will not open their doors this Thanksgiving, unless it’s just for the last sixty seconds, anyway. Depending on local time, they will most likely open for their “Big Friday” Black Friday sale from midnight on Thanksgiving, until 11 p.m. Black Friday, as they did in 2020.

 

3. Look for 50% off storewide during Old Navy’s in-store Black Friday sale.

Be ready, because you get 50% off everything storewide.

 

4. Plan to get your in-store-only Doorbuster Old Navy cozy socks for $1!

Let’s hope the global supply chain issues don’t keep Old Navy from selling their cozy socks for a buck this Black Friday. While the limit is typically 10 pairs, you might find you’re only allowed a fraction of that. Unfortunately, you have to buy these in store, so prepare for Black Friday crowds.

TIP: If you can hold off on buying your cozy socks and you’re not picky about their design, you can pick up cozy socks for $0.47 a pair during Old Navy’s seasonal clearance sale in January.

 

5. Spend $75 in store, before noon on Black Friday, and save an extra $15.

In 2020, Old Navy offered a coupon code worth $15 off when you spent $75 from midnight on Thanksgiving to noon on Black Friday (in store only).

 

6. Enjoy 50% off everything online and in store from Monday, Nov. 22 through Monday, Nov. 29.

In 2020, shoppers enjoyed Old Navy’s Big Friday 50% discount on everything online from midnight Nov. 22 to midnight Nov. 30. I expect the same for this holiday, starting Monday, Nov. 22 through Monday, Nov. 29 (Cyber Monday), giving you a few extra days to shop and avoid Black Friday crowds.

TIP: You can pick up any orders you made online during Thanksgiving Day in store on Black Friday starting at 6 a.m.

 

7. Save 50 – 70% on puffer coats for the whole family during Black Friday and Cyber Weekend.

I love the coat deals I see at Old Navy on Black Friday and Cyber Monday online and in store. In 2020, they had puffer jackets for the entire family starting at just $16. Here’s a deal I found:

Buy 1 Frost-Free Puffer Jacket (reg. $36.99-$59.99) $16-$18, sale price through Nov. 29
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: as low as $16

 

8. Save 40 – 70% during Old Navy’s Pre-Black Friday Sale Thursday, Nov. 18 through Sunday, Nov. 21.

In 2020, Old Navy had a “Pre-Big Friday Sale” with 40% off everything, in store and online, Old Navy credit cardholders saved an extra 10%. This year, I expect the sale to take place between November 18 – 21, 2021. Here are a few deals with savings around 50 – 70% that I found in 2020:

 

9. Shop Old Navy’s Pre-Black Friday One Day sales to save 50% and skip Black Friday.

Last year, Old Navy threw in a few One Day 50% off sales during their Pre-Black Friday week. At 50% off I say jump on whatever items you can, because waiting for Black Friday to get the same discount seems pointless; things may be out of stock and Black Friday crowds. Here’s a One Day deal on sweaters for the whole family from 2020:

Buy 1 Boys’ Sweater (reg. $19.99-$39.99) $10-$20, sale price through Nov. 20
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: as low as $10
Buy 1 Girls’ Sweater (reg. $24.99-$39.99) $12.50-$20, sale price through Nov. 20
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: as low as $12.50
Buy 1 Women’s Sweaters (reg. $29.99-$54.99) $14.97-$27.50, sale price through Nov. 20
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: as low as $14.97
Buy 1 Men’s Sweaters (reg. $30-$69.99) $15-$35, sale price through Nov. 20
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free curbside pickup
Final Price: as low as $15

TIP: If you find a lower price within 14 days of purchase Old Navy will adjust the price for you, even during Black Friday.

10. Buy $4 – $5 Old Navy hats and gloves for stocking stuffers.

In 2020 I saw knit hats and gloves drop to $4 – $5 each. They make the perfect stocking stuffers. Here are a couple of deals from last year:

Buy 1 Text-Friendly Sweater-Knit Gloves for Women (reg. $9.99) $4-$5, sale price, or 50 – 60% off
Final Price: as low as $4

Or

Buy 1 Textured Foil-Print Beanie for Girls (reg. $12.99) $5, sale price, or 62% off
Final Price: $5

 

11. Get 50% off Old Navy Clearance during Cyber Weekend.

Sorry, guys, Old Navy excludes their clearance items from any percent-off promotions during Black Friday. BUT, starting Saturday, Nov. 28 through Nov. 30, you get 50% off clearance items.

TIP: Old Navy doesn’t offer Black Friday percent-off promotions for gift cards, register-lane items, jewelry, and today-only deals.

 

12. Buy Old Navy’s Jingle Jams cheaper in mid-October or early November.

I know, buying your family Jingle Jams ($8 top and $8 for pants) during Black Friday is a tradition, but hear me out; there are a few times before and after Old Navy’s Big Friday when the pj’s are cheaper. Here are a few examples:

Online and in-store deal from Nov. 7, 2020:

Buy 1 Select Pajama Pants (reg. $19.99-$24.99) $5, sale price, or 75% to 80% off
Use unique coupon code for 20% off when you sign up for Old Navy’s email list
Free shipping on orders of $50+
Final Price: $4

Compare to Pajama Pants (reg. $19.99-$24.99) on sale for $7 during Big Friday week (In store only)

Here are a few online-only deals from Oct. 18, 2021:
Buy 1 Kids’ Flannel Pajama Set, (reg. $34.99), $12 sale price, or 66% off
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free store pickup
Final Price: $12
Buy 1 Women’s Flannel Pajama Set, (reg. $39.99), $14.00 sale price, or 65% off
Shipping: Free on orders of $50+
Pickup: Free
Final Price: $14

Compare to Pajama Sets 50% off during Big Friday week, online and in store.

 

13. Skip Old Navy’s shipping charges when you buy online and pick up in the store.

When you add an item to your bag, make sure you’ve checked the “Pickup In-Store — FREE” button on the same page.

You’ll get an email when your items are ready, and you’ll have up to five days to pick up your items, so you can miss all the Black Friday madness.

If you shop in store and need something in a different size or color than is available, get it shipped to your home for free by ordering it through an Old Navy team member.

 

14. Join Navyist Rewards for free shipping on orders $50 or more.

Join Old Navy’s Navyist Rewards program, and you can get free shipping on orders of $50 or more, while nonmembers pay $7.

 

15. Become an Old Navy Credit Cardholder to get free shipping and early access to Big Friday and cozy socks.

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020, Old Navy offered free shipping to all Old Navy credit cardholders with no minimum spend amount (usually you have to meet the same $50+ threshold like non-credit cardholders) to get free shipping. Last year, cardholders enjoyed:

  • A discount of 50% on everything Friday, Nov. 13 through Monday, Nov. 16 online and in store
  • Early access to the $1 Cozy Sock sale from Thursday, Nov. 12 through Wednesday, Nov. 18
  • A discount of 50% on everything Thursday, Nov. 19 through Sunday, Nov. 22 online and in store

TIP: If you want to apply for the Old Navy card, do so before Black Friday to avoid any confusion or delays the day you want to shop. And, remember to pay it off every month, because the interest rate is 25.99%.

 

16. Forget stacking Old Navy coupons during Black Friday sales.

However, there is one exception, and that’s the $5 in-store credit you’ll get for every $100 you spend when you’re an Old Navy credit cardholder. That credit will come during the billing cycle after you’ve made your purchase, though, so if you want that credit for Black Friday, you’ll need to earn the points in October.

 

17. Enjoy a 45-day return window when you shop Old Navy from Nov. 1 through Dec. 24.

Old Navy has a nifty little holiday return policy that you should be aware of:

  • If you buy any item between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24, you can return it by Jan. 15, or 45 days after your purchase — whichever is later
  • If you’re returning an online item through the mail, know that Old Navy has to get it by Jan. 15, or 45 days after purchase — whichever is later

Keep in mind that it’ll take at least five to seven days for your items to reach them via mail.

 

18. Buy discounted Old Navy gift cards on Raise.com to save up to 9.6%.

In October 2021 I saw a $50 Old Navy gift card for $45.20, which is a 9.6% savings. If you know you’re going to be doing some Old Navy Black Friday shopping, then this is an easy way to save.

 

19. Stock up on next years’ gifts during Old Navy’s Epic Clearance sale in January.

You can save even more during Old Navy’s Epic Clearance sale. Instead of 40% and 50% off, or finding one-offs at 70% off during their Big Friday event, I’m talking 75% or more off all clearance items. Here are a few deals from their clearance sale on Jan. 3, 2021, that had an additional one-day promotion of 30% off:

Buy 1 Fringed Sweater-Knit Scarf for Women (reg. $19.99) $5.97, clearance price
30% off through Jan. 3 at 11:59 p.m. PT
Free shipping on orders of $50+ or free store pickup

Final Price: $23.08, or 71% off
