Half Price Books Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Saturday November 7, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Half Price Books’ 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 a handful of doorbuster deals + 25% off storewide on everything else!).

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

Half Price Books typically kicks off their Black Friday sale a few days before the long weekend online and on Black Friday in-stores. And even though we’re still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re not expecting any major changes to their sale dates. What may go away are the doorbuster freebees as they try to discourage large crowd gatherings at their stores (last year they gave out free tote bags and $5 gift cards to the first 100 customers in stores when doors opened at 9:00AM on Friday).

  • Expected start date, online: Monday November 23, 2020 (that’s the Monday before Thanksgiving).
  • Expected start date, in-stores: Friday November 27, 2020.
  • Expected end date: At store closing on Friday November 27, 2020 or while supplies last.

As soon as the official dates are announced and a copy of the sale terms are available we will post the details for you, right here on your favorite Black Friday rumors site, BlackerFriday.com!

Last Year’s Black Friday Ad

Last updated on Monday November 18, 2019: Just a two page Black Friday ad from Half Price Books this year (see below).

This year you’ll get 25% off your entire purchase at hpb.com with promo code BOOKIT25. Offer valid online-only from November 25-29, 2019. In stores you’ll get just 20% off your entire purchase on Friday November 29, 2019. However the first 100 in-store shoppers through the door when doors open at 9:00AM will receive a cool free tote bag that contains a $5 store gift card. But one of those tote bags will have a $100 free gift card inside. Maybe you’ll be the lucky one this year?!
