IKEA Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect in the Ad

Updated on Friday October 22, 2021: There’s still some time left to go until IKEA’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 (or in this case, what may not come at all).

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

IKEA normally runs their Black Friday sale from Thanksgiving day through the long holiday weekend, ending on Sunday night. However last year they canceled their annual sale due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So what about this year? We’re pretty confident that they will return with the deals here in 2021 (both their Memorial Day and Labor Day sales returned again earlier this year). If they do then these are the Black Friday sale start and end dates that you can expect to see:

  • Expected BF sale start date, online: Thursday November 25, 2021 (that’s on Thanksgiving day). Note: All U.S. stores are historically closed on Thanksgiving day itself.
  • Expected BF sale start date, in-stores: Friday November 26, 2021. Store hours may vary by location due to COVID-19.
  • Expected BF sale end date: Sunday November 28, 2021 or while supplies last.

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates based off of IKEA’s historical sales schedules. Their confirmed Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale dates/times for 2021 will be posted as soon as they are officially announced by the company.

Last Year’s Black Friday Ad

Updated on Friday November 27, 2020: It looks like IKEA is not running a Black Friday sale this year. Instead, they are doing things “a little greener”. They’ve posted guides on their site to show you how to make Black Friday, and every day, sustainable.

Get Your IKEA Family Card!

Just about every sale we come across from IKEA requires you to show your IKEA Family Membership Card at checkout in order to take advantage of their advertised sale prices. So if you don’t have an IKEA Family member card in your possession then be sure to get yours to take advantage of their Black Friday sale this year. It’s a free membership which you can signup for at your nearest IKEA location or online at ikea.com.
