Tiffany Black Friday Sale in 2020 – What to Expect

Black Friday 2020 — What to Expect

For all of you wishing to pick up something special and shiny (and at a big discount!) at Tiffany & Co. this Black Friday then we’re sorry to be the ones to let you know that Tiffany will not have any discounts this year over Thanksgiving weekend. And it’s not because of the current coronavirus pandemic.

In fact, Tiffany never ever runs any sales at all at any time of the year. As quoted by Mark Aaron, vice president of investor relations at Tiffany, “Tiffany does not conduct price promotional sales on Black Friday or any other day.” That includes Cyber Monday, After Christmas, Labor Day, Mother’s Day, and every other major holiday. But just as others have commented before, because they never have any discounts, it makes giving and receiving a gift from them, in their famous blue box, all that more special.

What may make your purchase a little easier to swallow is knowing that Tiffany offers several different financing options to those who qualify. They also have a 30 day return policy if you happen to buy the “wrong” gift (I’ve done that before!) and an upgrade policy where you’ll have up to 5 years to exchange your purchase for another item of your choice.

In terms of the upgrade policy, which is something I wasn’t aware of, it works like this — lets say you can only afford an engagement ring up to $5000. You can get it now but in a few years, when you save up some extra money, you can replace it with something bigger, better, shinier, etc.. Of course there are some restrictions and rules to the policy, including that any new item will need to be priced at two times the appraised value of the item you return, but it’s still an option worth considering if you are on a tighter budget. You can get familiar with the policy at any Tiffany & Co. retail store.

With that being said, it doesn’t mean you can’t find a great deal elsewhere on jewelry and watches this Thanksgiving weekend. Be sure to take a look Zales, Jared, and Kay as they are all running specials on Black Friday. You can also signup to our newsletter and we’ll keep you updated with this year’s best Black Friday offers from all the other stores and brands as well. Good luck and happy bargain hunting this holiday season!

Tiffany & Co. After Christmas Sale 2020 – What to Expect

Literally once the clock strikes midnight on Christmas day is when we begin getting bombarded with all the after Christmas sales emails. But one that won’t be coming this year is from Tiffany & Co.

Does Tiffany Run An After Christmas Sale?

The short answer is no. There will not be an after Christmas sale at Tiffany’s this year. In fact, Tiffany is one of the handful of stores that has a policy of no discounting, ever. Not on Black Friday, Cyber Monday or any other day of the year. The same goes for many of the other high-end brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Hermes and Prada.

Why No Sales?

Tiffany does this to maintain high brand value and to keep a perception of exclusivity. Tiffany products are expensive and the high prices make their jewelry “special”, something that’s not marketed for the masses.

You’re also paying for top quality materials and design. A lot goes into making each piece perfect so you know that everything that’s in their little blue box is made to the upmost top standards. Tiffany collaborates with some of the most sought after designers in the world. That’s what helps make their jewelry so desired.

Can I Still Find a Bargain on Tiffany Jewelry?

There’s really just two ways to save on Tiffany jewelry. One way is buying used. If you do a quick Google search then you’ll find may different third party site selling used Tiffany pieces. But that’s risky as you can easily end up with a counterfeit product or something that’s been abused by the previous owner. I wouldn’t recommend going down this route.

You’re second option is go with silver as opposed to gold or platinum. Tiffany offers many of their best sellers in several different materials and the difference in price is often substantial. For example, the Heart Tag Bracelet seen below costs $3700 in 18k gold but $335 when finished in silver. That’s more than a 10x difference in price!

Another thing to be aware of at Tiffany is their upgrade policy. Certain Tiffany engagement rings and other jewelry can be returned back to the store and you’ll be given credit equal to your original purchase price that you can use towards another piece of jewelry. So lets say you can’t afford that perfect engagement ring today, you can buy something that’s less expensive today and just exchange it for something nicer a few years down the road. Be sure to talk to a store representative for offer details and terms.

Prices Are On The Rise

Year after year, we’ve noticed that prices are on the rise. The changes may be subtle but are definitely there. Back on May 18th last year Eric, one of the members of our team here at Blacker Friday, purchased the Tiffany Soleste ring and an engagement ring for his then fiancé (they are now happily married!). Back then the ring, which is finished in platinum with a .70-carat aquamarine and diamonds, cost $5800. But as of today (December 5, 2019) the exact same ring now costs $6000.

So even though you are paying full price today, in a few years from now it’s quite possible that whatever you purchase will look like a bargain.

Tiffany & Co. Cyber Monday Sale 2020 – What to Expect

Tiffany’s Cyber Monday Sale – What to Expect

If you’re wondering when exactly Tiffany runs their sales… then we’re sad to say, they never do. Not on Black Friday. Not on Cyber Monday. Simply, never.

But maybe that’s not a bad thing. Whoever is on your receiving end, whether it’s your wife, girlfriend, mom, or niece, no other jewelry is as special as the one that comes in that little blue box. And for you, you don’t ever have to have that buyers remorse that happens so often when just after we buy something, the same thing goes on sale. That will never happen at Tiffany’s.

However, if you’re one of those folks, like me, that is so deeply programed to shop only when there’s a mega good discount, then be sure to check out the other jewelry stores that we’re watching over the long Thanksgiving weekend. That includes Zales, Kay, Jared, and Pandora.
