GameStop Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Sunday October 17, 2021: We still have some time left to go until GameStop’s 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

With the COVID-19 pandemic that stuck last year, GameStop changed up their usual Black Friday sales schedule to accommodate social distancing guidelines; the deals were extended and many more of them were available online first. If they decide to continue with a similar sales timeline, which we think they still will, here are the Black Friday sale start and end dates that you can expect to see this year:

  • Estimated Black Friday Countdown Sale, online & in-stores: November 13-20, 2021 or while supplies last.
  • Estimated Black Friday Early Deals, online & in-stores: November 21-24, 2021 or while supplies last.
  • Estimated Main BF sale start date, online: Wednesday November 24, 2021 at 8:00PM CST (that’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving).
  • Estimated Main BF sale start date, in-stores: Friday November 26, 2021 when doors expected to open at 7:00AM.
  • Estimated Main BF sale end date: Friday evening, November 26, 2021 or while supplies last.

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates based off of last year’s sales schedule. GameStop’s confirmed Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale dates/times for 2021 will be posted as soon as they are officially announced by the company.
