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.

Updated on Monday November 23, 2020: Our team just got an email tip from one of our readers with with info on VMware’s Black Friday sale. An early access sneak peak is now live! Details and discount levels are listed in the screenshot below. Good luck and happy bargain hunting!

Expected 2020 Start & End Dates

VMware’s Black Friday sale usually kicks off on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving and runs through Sunday night. Then they run nearly the same type of discounts on Cyber Monday, although last year the deals we marginally worse than those offered on Black Friday.

  • Early access sneak peak: Monday November 23, 2020.
  • Expected general start date: Wednesday November 25, 2020. (that’s the day before Thanksgiving).
  • Expected end date: Sunday November 29, 2020.

But will the current global COVID-19 pandemic cause VMware to alter this year’s Black Friday scheduling? Unlike at traditional brick and mortar retailers that have to implement changes to try to cut down on the holiday weekend in-store foot traffic — with many large stores and malls/outlets even closing for the entire day on Thanksgiving — VMware doesn’t have to deal with this issue. Therefore, we’re not expecting to see any major changes to their Black Friday timing or discount levels typically offered across their software lines.

  1. 2020 “preview” Black Friday marketing campaign from today good for about 8 more hrs. Don’t know if they will be offering better deals in the next couple days but these are 30% and 20% on new vs upgrade licenses at the moment.
