Express Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Sunday October 17, 2021: There is still some time left to go until Express’ Black Friday sale arrives again but you can scroll down the page to view last year’s details to get a general idea of the type of offers they typically run (you can expect to see similar deals return).

As always, we’ll be posting a copy of their ad, sale start/end dates and all the important details for 2021 the moment we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.

Black Friday 2021 Start & End Dates

Here’s a look at the Black Friday start and end dates that we’re expecting at Express this year. Our predictions are not only based off of last year’s sale dates but from the last several years that we’ve been tracking their sales.

  • Estimated Black Friday “Early Access” start date: As early as November 11, 2021 for all Express Insider members. If you’re not a member then it’s free to join!
  • Estimated general Black Friday start date: Thursday November 25, 2021 (that’s on Thanksgiving day). Store hours will likely vary by location due to the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Estimated Black Friday end date: Saturday November 27, 2021. Everything is always available while supplies last.
  • Estimated Cyber Monday sale: Monday November 29, 2021. The sale will likely be similar but with new doorbuster deals offered for those that shop early.

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates. Express’ confirmed Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale dates/times for 2021 will be posted as soon as they are officially announced by the company. Bookmark this page and check back periodically for the latest updates or signup to our newsletter and we’ll let you know once their ad is released.

What’s Typically Excluded?

We’ve never come across a storewide sale that didn’t have any exclusions — Express is no different. Here’s some of the exclusions that you’ll typically see listed in their terms and conditions on Black Friday:

  • NBA and MLB Collection, Express Edition and select Featured Brands will not qualify for the offer.
  • Excludes the purchase of gift cards.
  • Not valid at all Express Factory Outlet storers and at select Express retail locations (see the terms from last year for a complete list of excluded stores).
  • Discount not applicable towards any shipping and handling fees.

These are some of the items that standout to us. Other restrictions may apply.
