Some of our favorite offers this year include:

  • Pet Food & Snacks — Black Friday is the prefect time to stock up on dog and cat food for the winter. You’ll be able to pick up all dry dog food in stock for buy one get one at 50% off. That includes brands Blue, Rachael Ray Nutrish, WholeHearted and others. Just remember that the second discounted item must be the same brand as the first and the 50% off will be applied to the item of equal or lesser value of the two.
  • Chew Toys — If it’s time to trash some of those old, dirty, chewed up dog toys then Petco has plenty on sale for you to stock up. You’ll find mix and match 50% off on all pet toys from their Holiday Trials Collection and from the Marvel Pet Fans Collection. The only exclusions form the offer are pre-stuffed stockings.
  • Aquariums — If you’re looking to get a new fish tank or terrarium then you’ll find the entire stock of Zoo Med Stater kits, Aqueon Aquarium starter kits and Aqueon Open-Glass Aquariums for 50% off. And if you need a snake or lizard to go with it, then all reptiles in stock are also 50% off (selection will vary by store).

Just be aware that Petco’s Black Friday offers may require you to use your Pals Rewards card in order to apply the advertised discount. If you’re not a member then you can sign up for free in stores or online.

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

Petco’s Black Friday sale is usually a two day event that begins Friday morning and ends Saturday evening, while supplies last. While they typically offer extra perks for in-store shoppers like free gifts for your pet (last year it was a pair of antlers for your dog or cat), due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we’re expecting that some of the free perks this year will be extended to online shoppers as well.

  • Expected start date: Friday November 27, 2020 (Black Friday). Stores typically open at 8:00AM. Black Friday deals are now live online!
  • Expected end date: Saturday November 28, 2020 or while quantities last.

In terms of store hours, be sure to call your local store a few days before their Black Friday sale is set to begin to see if and when they will be open. Be prepared as masks, social distancing and in-store maximum customer limits may be in place. And don’t forget to check out our complete coverage of COVID related store and mall/outlet closures happening this Thanksgiving.
