Updated on Tuesday October 6, 2020: It’s still too early for us to know what’s coming at Urban Outfitters’ 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 a store and site-wide buy-one get-one 50% off offer to return again!).
We’ll be posting a copy of their ad and all the important details for 2020 once we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.
Expected 2020 Start & End Dates
We’ve noticed several trends these last several year’s that we’ve been tracking Urban Outfitters’ Black Friday sales. Firstly, you’ll likely see a “pre-Black Friday sale” advertised in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Secondly, their main Black Friday sale usually goes live on the Wednesday before the long weekend. It usually runs through Saturday night and then is usually replaced 24 hours later on Cyber Monday with a different buy-more save-more type of offer.
- Expected pre-Black Friday sale: November 23-24, 2020.
- Expected start date: Wednesday November 25, 2020 (that’s the day before Thanksgiving).
- Expected end date: Saturday November 28, 2020 .
While normally we would be 95% confident of our scheduling predictions for Urban Outfitters, this year’s holiday shopping season is being turned upside down due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. We’re already expecting a number of stores and malls to be closed on Thanksgiving day itself. Many big-box retailers are also extending the duration of their offers this year to prevent huge crowds from gathering all on the same day. It’s possible that Urban Outfitters will follow the trend and do the same. Of course we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
What’s Typically Excluded?
Here are Urban Outfitters’ offer exclusions and limitations that we typically see during their Black Friday sale:
- For BOGO 50% off, the item that will have the 50% off savings applied to it will be the one of equal or lesser value of the two chosen. If there are multiple items that you are purchasing then the extra savings apply to the lower priced item(s).
- To qualify for the BOGO 50% off offer there must be items in increments of two in your checkout cart.
- Some products will be excluded from the offer. Among those will likely be gift card purchases and service fees (i.e. shipping and handling).
- Any free shipping offers apply to their Standard service on packages sent within the United States. Oversize items may require an additional surcharge.
As we wait for UO’s Black Friday sale to begin, you can take a moment to signup to Urban On as members usually get an extra bonus discount on Black Friday (FYI, it’s free to join). They also offer new members a 10% off coupon and a chance to win a $100 UO gift card just for signing up (offer expiration unknown – some exclusions may apply).
You can also take a look at all of their current offers and coupons posted below. If you end up buying anything today then remember that free standard shipping is offered year-round for orders of $50.00 or more. Happy bargain hunting!
