GAP Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

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

The COVID-19 pandemic caused many brands to rethink their Black Friday sales schedules last year, including GAP which started their Black Friday sale earlier than ever before. But what about this year? We believe that the trend will continue here in 2021 with many brands opting for the earlier start date. If we’re correct, then these would be this year’s likely Black Friday start and end dates from GAP:

  • Expected Black Friday sale, start date: Wednesday November 24, 2021 Monday November 22, 2021.
  • Expected Black Friday sale, end date: Saturday November 27, 2021 or while supplies last (although a similar sale will likely return again a few days later on Cyber Monday).

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates based off of last year’s sales schedule. GAP’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. 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 dove into a copy of the official terms and conditions from GAP’s Black Friday sale last year and have to admit, they are not as bad as we expected. Other stores that run storewide sales have a mile-long list of exclusions which GAP thankfully doesn’t. However there are still some things you should know:

  • GAP’s Black Friday sale is usually offered at Gap, GapBody, GapKids, and babyGap stores (and corresponding store websites) in the U.S. only. Gap Factory Outlets are always excluded from the offer.
  • No extra discounts offered on gift card purchases and non-merchandise items (i.e. shipping & handling charges, taxes, etc.).
  • No extra discounts offered on items labeled as “doorbuster”.

  1. Love Gap Kids! Their kids clothing is so cute and trendy. Definitely will be buying some jeans and T-shirts for my boys. They also need new hoodies as they grow up fast. A Star Wars Graphic hoodie is on my list.
