Ancestry Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Friday October 23, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Ancestry’s Black Friday sale this year but you can scroll down the page to see the details from last year to get an idea of what’s likely to come. More often than not, the sales are usually pretty similar from year to year.

We’ll be posting a copy of their ad and all the important details for 2020 once we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or simply join our newsletter and we’ll let you know the moment news is announced.

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

Below you’ll find our Ancestry sale start and end date predictions for 2020. They are based off of the sale schedule that we’ve seen these last few years in a row. Unlike at other stores, we are not expecting the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to have an impact on their sale dates.

  • Expected start date: Thursday November 26, 2020 at 12:01AM ET (Thanksgiving day).
  • Expected end date: Monday November 30, 2020 at 11:59PM ET (Cyber Monday).

As much as Ancestry’s pre-Black Friday sale will look compelling in the week leading up to the long holiday weekend, for the last 5 years that we’ve been tracking them the lowest prices are always offered over Thanksgiving weekend itself. We recommend waiting until Thanksgiving day to pick up your new AncestryDNA kit or gift membership.
