What to expect at Hulu’s Black Friday 2023 Sale

We’re already looking forward to Hulu’s Black Friday 2023 sale. Although we still have a long ways to go, you can already slowly start planning for the event. Check out last year’s ad and offer details posted below to get a general idea of the type of deals that they like to run. And if you join our newsletter, you’ll be the first to know once their Black Friday 2023 ad is posted.

Black Friday 2023 Start & End Dates

You likely won’t have to make any rush decisions when it comes to taking advantage of Hulu’s Black Friday sale. That’s not only because the offer is traditionally available all Thanksgiving weekend long, but you can expect early access to event a few days before then. Not that there is much to think about — Hulu’s Black Friday deal has historically been one of their best offers of the year!

  • Expected BF early access: Monday November 20, 2023. Last year Hulu launched the offer on a hidden page on their site which was intended for ABC’s Good Morning America viewers.
  • Expected general BF sale start date: Thursday November 23, 2023 at 12:01AM PT (that’s on Thanksgiving day).
  • Expected BF sale end date: Monday November 27, 2023 at 11:59PM PT (that’s on Cyber Monday).

Just remember that these dates are still just our predictions and, at the moment, unconfirmed. We’ll post the official sale dates for 2023 as soon as we are able to independently verify them.

Last Year’s Black Friday Ad

Updated on Monday November 21, 2022: Hulu’s Black Friday sale is back, earlier than we initially expected!

Starting today, visit hulu.com/gma to get early access to their Black Friday sale from now through Cyber Monday. This page isn’t advertised on Hulu’s homepage, the early access is intended for viewers who saw the deal on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Unfortunately, the deal isn’t as good as last year’s where you could have picked up a full 12 months of their ad-supported plan for just 99¢ per month. It’s now on sale for $1.99/month, which was their Black Friday offer back in 2020 (but still, it’s 75% off which isn’t that bad!). Just keep in mind that it’s only for “new and eligible returning subscribers” who have not been subscribed in the last month. But as you’ll see in the extensive comments at the bottom of the page, apparently just a different email address and different credit card is all that’s needed to be considered as a new subscriber (just don’t forget to cancel your existing plan so you don’t get double charged!).

With this deal you can cancel anytime. See the official terms and conditions posted below for compete details. Offer ends Monday November 28, 2022 at 11:59PM PT. Happy bargain hunting!

    1. Different accounts. We have been exchanging Hulu subscriptions by using my and my wife’s account. The only caveat is the you’ll lose you watch history from the last 12 months. Also any bundle deals will be lost. I added Disney+ for just a couple of dollars extra. We’ll have to cancel it too.

    2. New account with a different email and different credit card for payment. Don’t forget to log into your current account and cancel that subscription.

    1. I use it with a chrome browser and ublock. Blocks almost all commercials . You sometimes have to turn off ublock and turn it back on to start a program. Works on several free services as well. Crackle and Roku channels. Just get a cheap chromebook with hdmi output.

  1. Last year I had to quit Hulu about 6 months before Thanksgiving and saw the deal but they still wouldn’t let me get the discount had to use a different email and credit card

  2. Some credit cards have a charge forgiveness limit. Discover has a $2 limit, so if you have a recurring charge under $2 and nothing else on that card for the month, discover writes it off automatically. Thus free Hulu potentially.

    1. Unless they change something this year, you need a new email address AND a new credit card number. Should not be a problem if you use Privacy or one of the other services that allow you to generate merchant-specific card numbers linked to your checking account. Or buy a $25 VISA or MC gift card and you should be set for the year.

    2. In the past u needed a new email and different credit card. As well as using an incognito screen. However a deal hasn’t been announced for this year yet

  3. Been doing this the last 3 years, switch the recipient back and forth between my husband and I; the other person (current subscriber) cancels their subscription while new person takes over. We keep the same password, just have to change the email address for login. I think the “eligible returning customer” just has to not be a current subscriber for either the last 4 or 6 months

    1. And you have to change credit cards. Made the mistake last time of using the same card so I was declined the promotional price until I used another card

    2. Debbie K. Do you guys cancel your subscription then or do you cancel it 3 months ahead of time. Also curious you spoke of taking turns each year. Do you guys, when it’s ur turn again, reuse the email you use when it was your turn or generate yourself a new email, for yourself every time if was your turn..? I hope that wasn’t too hard to follow, sorry.

    3. Last year I was unable to restart as an eligible returning customer, despite getting the email offering it to me. Messaged customer service, and they basically said it wasn’t their problem, did I want to start my subscription at full price. Um…no. I don’t.

    1. Hi Janine,

      The terms last year say the offer is for “new and eligible returning subscribers only” so not sure if you would be able to get this deal again or not. You’ll probably have to wait as see.
