Home Depot Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Friday September 11, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know the specific deals coming at The Home Depot’s Black Friday 2020 sale, but we’re already learning that this year’s Black Friday sale will be unlike any other we’ve ever seen.

In response to the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, CNN is reporting that The Home Depot will offer two months of Black Friday deals vs. the usual 2-day span of Thanksgiving/Black Friday. The deals will be available both online and in-stores, but those shopping through Home Depot’s app will have early access starting in November (of course we’ll let you know when that is as soon as news is officially announced). They are doing this to reduce in-store foot traffic over the busy holiday weekend during a time that experts predict the pandemic will get worse as we get into flu season.

In terms of the deals, 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 offers again). 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

The Home Depot typically starts their Black Friday sale online on Thanksgiving day and in stores at 6:00AM on Black Friday morning. We now know that The Home Depot’s Black Friday 2020 deals will begin sometime in early November and will run through most of December. We’ve seen The Home Depot already so something similar in the past with their Black Friday appliance offers — They usually run for an entire month, from the first week of November into the of week of December. The one-day doorbuster deals are now gone and you’ll have a plenty of time to take advantage of their sale this year.

We still don’t know if there will any in-store only specials that will not be available online. The Home Depot is famous for offering their store-only 99-cent live poinsettia plants (which normally retail for $4.98). Historically they have also offered in-store only deals on select Christmas wreaths, holiday character decorations and various tools. You can see what those were last year by checking out the “store only” icons in the 2019 flyer posted further down this page.

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. 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!

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).
