Expected Black Friday Start & End Times
Ever since we’ve been monitoring Lego’s Black Friday sale (starting way back in 2014), their sale dates have been pretty much consistent. Based on that history, here are the start and end times you can expect to see this year:
- Expected start date: Early in the morning on Black Friday November 29, 2019.
- Expected end date: Cyber Monday, December 2, 2019 at 11:59PM PT.
Just so that Lego’s legal department doesn’t come after us, we have to mention that these dates are just our predictions and are subject to change (although knowing them as well as we do, they probably won’t!).
