Home Depot Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Saturday October 23, 2021: There’s still some time left to go until The Home Depot’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). But according to Home Depot’s recently launched Black Friday page, their deals will begin on November 1st!

In the meantime, you can check out Home Depot’s Holiday Decor Catalog for 2021 that was just released. It should give you some inspiration for how you can decorate you living room, dining room and bedrooms for the holidays. Best of all, there are links to all the featured decorations so you can see how much they cost and add them to your Black Friday shopping list.

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

Before COVID-19 hit last year, The Home Depot would typically start their Black Friday sale online on Thanksgiving day and in stores at 6:00AM on Black Friday morning. But that all changed last year when they decided to turn Black Friday into a month-long event (with no more one-day-only doorbuster deals).

So what about this year? Well, COVID-19 is still with us so we may see The Home Depot opt-in for a similar extended sales schedule. If that’s again the case, then these would be this year’s Black Friday sale dates:

  • Confirmed BF sale, start date: Monday November 1, 2021.
  • Estimated BF sale, end date: Wednesday December 1, 2021 or while supplies last.

Warehouse hours may differ by city/state and customer capacity limits may still be in effect in certain coronavirus hotspot locations. We’re of course monitoring the latest developments coming from The Home Depot and will post their official Black Friday 2021 sale start and end dates/times, mask requirements and any other importing things you’ll need to know when shopping this Thanksgiving weekend the moment they are confirmed.

Our Favorite Deals for 2021

Typically with 35+ pages of featured deals in their Black Friday ad, there’s a lot to look over before you head out shopping. But when you dig a little bit deeper, you’ll find that many of the advertised specials are similar from year to year. Here’s some of the things that you should keep an eye out for this year:

  • Power tools — As you can expect from a home improvement store, power tools will likely again dominate throughout The Home Depot’s circular. Be on the lookout for power tool combo sets from brands such as Ryobi, DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee and Ridgid. These sets usally include 2 to 6 different tools, 1 or 2 batteries, a charger and a tool bag.
  • Major appliances — Both Lowe’s and Home Depot run always run plenty of Black Friday appliance deals on brands such as LG, Samsung and Whirlpool (typically with saving of up to 40% off on certain washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves and ovens). On top of that, they are known for offering extra free store gift cards on top of that when you buy 2 or more qualifying appliances in a single transaction. Free local delivery and special financing options are usually available as well.
  • Regular hand 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 they had 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. We’ve also seen fantastic 270-piece Husky mechanics tool sets with box on sale for just $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, most of the hand tools you’ll buy at The Home Depot come with a lifetime warranty so no worries if you happen to break any of them down the road (something you don’t usually get with many of the cheap tools found at other places like Harbor Freight).
  • Holiday decor — Time to put up some winter-themed glowing lawn characters in front of your home (we promise, the neighbors will love them!). Within the first few pages of The Home Depot’s Black Friday ad you’ll usually find some of their most popular pre-Lit inflatables. For inside your home be on the lookout for 7.5-foot pre-lit LED Christmas trees with 8-function remote control on sale for under $80 and 100+ light Christmas tree lights for as low as $2.98/set.
