It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Home Depot’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 see similar deals return). 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 Start & End Dates
As many stores do, The Home Depot starts their Black Friday sale online a day before they do in stores. Based on last year’s sale schedule, here are our predictions for 2020:
- Expected start date, online: Thursday November 26, 2020 at 6:00AM ET / 3:00AM PT (Thanksgiving day). All stores are closed all day Thursday in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
- Expected start date, in-stores Friday November 27, 2020 when doors open at 6:00AM.
- Expected end date: Friday November 27, 2020 at 11:59PM ET or when stores close, while supplies last.
Some offers may last all Thanksgiving weekend long. Other deals, like on appliances and on select power tools, will likely begin in early November and will probably run past Cyber Monday. Just about everything you buy online will qualify for free shipping, including large appliances priced at $398 or more.
It’s also worth mentioning that certain items are available it-stores only. That includes their famous 99-cent live poinsettia plant (normally retails for $4.98), select Christmas wreaths, and select holiday character decorations. Once this year’s flyer is available you’ll see a “store only” icon next to any of the specials that are not available online.
Our Favorite Deals for 2020
Typically with 40+ pages packed with a few hundred deals, there will be a lot to look over in The Home Depot’s Black Friday ad once it’s released in mid-November. And although we don’t yet officially know the exact items that will be on sale for 2020, nor their price points, we’ve been tracking them long enough to be able to make some educated guesses as to what to you should keep an eye out for. Here’s some of the things we think will be the featured this Black Friday:
- Power tools — As you can expect from a home improvement store, power tools will likely again dominate throughout The Home Depot’s circular this year. Be on the lookout for power tool combo sets from brands such as Ryobi, DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee and Ridgid. Last year one of best valued bundles was a 6-piece Ryobi ONE+ Lithium-Ion Cordless set on sale for $199 (normally $299). It included a drill/driver, impact driver, multi-tool, circular saw, reciprocating saw, work light, charger and a bag to carry it all in. It also included two interchangeable and rechargeable batteries.
- Live poinsettia plants — As for as long as we can remember (at least for the last 10 years), The Home Depot has always has a 99-cent special on live poinsettia plants (with a limit of 10 per customer). It is always offered in-stores only and is used as a way to get more customers into their store. However this year with the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, we may see less in-store-only type of offers this year.
- Appliances — Both Lowe’s and Home Depot run always run a month-long “Black Friday” appliance sale on brands such as LG, Samsung and Whirlpool. Last year you could have saved up to 40% off certain washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves and ovens with up to an additional $600 off if you purchased two or more major appliances together in a single transaction. Free local delivery on purchases of $396+ and special financing options were available as well. Expect the sale to begin sometime in the first week of November and run through early December.
- Regular tools — Are you missing that one socket from your set? Need new pliers or drill bits? If the answer is yes, then you’ll find a number of hand tool deals priced at under $15. Last year there was a 70-piece impact driving bit set on sale for just $12.97, a 155-piece rotary set on sale for $12.88, and a 4-piece titanium screw extractor set on sale for $9.97. There was also a fantastic 270-piece Husky mechanics tool set with box on sale for $99 (valued at $530 if purchased separately!). It included 1/4”, 3/8” and 1/2” ratchets, sockets, wrenches and various accessories. Best of all, it came with a lifetime warranty if you happened to break any of them (something you don’t usually get with many of the cheap tools found at other places like Harbor Freight).
- Holiday decor — Time to take down your Halloween pumpkins, ghosts and goblins and replace them some winter-themed glowing lawn characters (we promise, the neighbors will love them!). On the front page of The Home Depot’s Black Friday ad last year they featured huge 11-foot Pre-Lit Inflatable Disney characters, including the ever popular Olaf from Frozen, as well as Santa with sleigh and reindeer, for just $69.98/each. For inside your home you had the option of buying a 7.5-foot pre-lit LED Christmas tree with 8-function remote control for $79.98 (normally $229), 110-light Christmas lights for as low as $2.98/set, and fresh fir-tree wreaths starting from $8.88/each.
As we always do here on Blacker Friday, we’ll be updating our list of favorite things for 2020 as soon as The Home Depot’s Black Friday ad is leaked. Stay tuned for more to come!

Last Year’s Black Friday Ad
Last updated on Monday November 25, 2019: Earlier this morning we received a copy of Home Depot’s Black Friday 2019 ad! Check out all 40 pages below.
Just like every year, their Black Friday sale begins in-stores at 8:00AM on Black Friday. However you’ll be able to shop most of the deals at homedepot.com beginning at 6:00AM EST on Thanksgiving day. In terms of the appliance deals, most of them are already available today. This year it’s up 40% off select models with extra $600 off if you buy several appliances together within the same purchase.
In terms of the deals, we are again seeing lots of tool deals, including 2-piece combo kits from Ryobi and Milwaukee starting at $99.00. Makita, Dewalt, and Ridgid drills, drivers and saws are also plentiful and priced as low as $199.00. In stores, you are also likely to see select left-over garden furniture sets, grills, and other summer related items, like lawn mowers or BBQ’s, clearance priced as they clear out the remaining items in their store inventory (although selection of last chance summer items will vary by store).
Have a nice Thanksgiving and good luck bargain hunting!
