Express Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Friday October 2, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Express’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 (we’re expecting to once again see 50% off site and storewide!).

As always, 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 join our newsletter to be the first to know the moment news is announced.

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

Below you’ll find our expected Black Friday sale dates when shopping at and at your local Express clothing store. These predictions are based on last year’s sale schedule but may be extended this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

  • Expected Black Friday Preview: November 20-25, 2020. Express usually offers an exclusive Black Friday Preview for all Express Next Members. It will likely again be 50% off the entire store when free shipping included for online shoppers.
  • Expected general Black Friday start date: Thursday November 26, 2020 (that’s on Thanksgiving day). Expect 50% off the site-wide with special doorbuster deals coming Thanksgiving day and on the morning of Black Friday. Store hours may vary, with some locations possibly closed, due to coronavirus so be sure to check ahead of time for your local hours of operation. See the full list of store and mall/outlet closures for full details.
  • Expected end date: Saturday November 28, 2020. Everything is always available while supplies last.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale: Monday November 30, 2020. We are also expecting 50% off the entire store with new doorbuster deals offered for those that shop early.

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 (you’ll find the official terms on Express’s website or in-stores once the sale is live):

  • 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.
