J.Crew Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Sunday October 25, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at J.Crew’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 50% off site-wide on full priced items and an extra 60% off sale items).

We’ll be posting a copy of their ad and all the important details for 2020 once we know more. That includes the latest coronavirus related store closures, fitting room restrictions, in-store maximum capacity limits and mask requirements. Be sure to check back again soon for more updates or join our newsletter to be the first to know the moment news is announced.

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

J.Crew’s Black Friday sale will likely be unlike any other we’ve seen before due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. It’s likely they will focus their deals mostly online this year. Here’s what we’re expecting:

  • Expected Black Friday early access, online: Monday November 23-26, 2020. This is typically reserved for J.Crew Rewards members.
  • Expected general start date, online: In the early hours of Thanksgiving day, Thursday November 26, 2020.
  • Expected general start date, in-stores: Under normal circumstances the sale would begin in the late afternoon on Thanksgiving day. But this year we are expecting most stores to closed on Thanksgiving day, including all locations within these major U.S. malls/outlet centers.
  • Expected end date: J.Crew’s storewide Black Friday sales usually last through Cyber Monday. That’s on November 30, 2020. However, initially you’ll find the terms usually have an end date on Black Friday itself, but then get extended later on. Then for one day only on Cyber Monday we typically see a handful of new doorbuster deals added to the sale with deals at up to 60% off.

Obviously these are still our predictions at this point. We’ll post the official sale dates as soon as they become available.

Current Offers

We’re including a full list of J. Crew’s current offers and coupons below. It’s always wise to double check what other promotions are now live before heading out to shop. Good luck!

What’s Typically Excluded?

Just like most storewide sales, J.Crew’s sale typically comes with a handful of exclusions. Here are the important thing you should be aware of before shopping this year.

  • J.Crew’s Black Friday sale is usually limited to U.S. and Canadian J.Crew retail stores and jcrew.com. J.Crew Factory stores, J.Crew Mercantile stores, jcrewfactory.com, and phone orders are ineligible for the discount.
  • Some merchandise will not be included in the sale. In the past we’ve seen third-party branded items, women’s Collection items, men’s everyday cashmere and Ludlow dress shirts, and Garments for Good items listed as some of the exclusions.
  • No discounts offered on any in-store or online gift card purchases.
