J.Crew Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Sunday October 17, 2021: There’s still some time left to go until J.Crew’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).

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

J.Crew’s Black Friday sale usually follows a similar timeframe from year to year. And even in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis last year, their sales schedule remained the same. So if nothing drastically changes then this is what you can expect:

  • Expected Black Friday early access, online: Monday November 22-25, 2021. Early access to the sale is typically reserved exclusively for J.Crew Rewards members.
  • Expected BF general start date, online: In the early hours of Thanksgiving day, Thursday November 25, 2021.
  • Expected BF 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 some stores in COVID-19 hotspots to be closed on Thanksgiving day.
  • Expected BF sale end date: J.Crew’s storewide Black Friday sales usually last through Cyber Monday. That’s on November 29, 2021. 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.

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

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.
