West Elm Black Friday 2020 Sale – What to Expect

Updated on Wednesday November 11, 2020: No, it’s not déjà vu — that sensation of having already lived a totally identical situation in the past — It’s just West Elm’s Black Friday sale coming back again… It’s the exact same sale they run every year (and that’s a good thing!). And it’s here earlier than ever before due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting now, you’ll be able to pick up anywhere from 15% off to 30% off your entire purchase at westelm.com or at your nearest West Elm store. The ultimate discount you receive depends on how much you spend in a single transaction; the more you spend the more you save. Here are the discount thresholds:

  • Receive 15% off on your purchase of $150 or more.
  • Receive 20% off on your purchase of $500 or more.
  • Receive 25% off on your purchase of $1000 or more.
  • Receive 30% off on your purchase of $3500 or more.

If shopping online just don’t forget to apply coupon code SAVENOW at checkout to apply the discount. If shopping in stores then they will apply the applicable discount at the checkout counter.

West Elm also has newly added items in their sale section at up to 50% off. You’ll find the best selection online but there’s a section at the back of the store with some last chance deals as well (these will vary by location).

Confirmed 2020 Start & End Dates

Due to the exceptional year caused by the coronavirus pandemic, West Elm has started their Black Friday sale earlier than even before. Here are this year’s start and end times for 2020:

  • Confirmed start date: Monday November 23, 2020. Thursday November 5, 2020.
  • Expected end date: Sunday November 29, 2020. The offer will then likely be replaced with a different Cyber Monday sale (last year’s Cyber Monday sale had up to 70% off select sale items).

What’s Typically Excluded?

Usually items such as gift cards and services, such as shipping and handling fees, are excluded from West Elm’s storewide Black Friday sale. Also, West Elm typically excludes rug, furniture and other bulky items from any free shipping promotions. Other than that, you should be good to go!

Where Can You Shop?

You can shop either at your local West Elm store or at westelm.com. But because things like tables, chairs, bed frames and furniture are not usually stocked in West Elm’s local store inventory, either way you’ll need to wait for your order to arrive.

Does West Elm Have a Cyber Monday Sale?

Historically, when West Elm’s Black Friday sale ends after the long weekend on Sunday night, it’s immediately replaced with their Cyber Monday sale. It’s usually no longer a store-wide discount but rather a sale on a select group of items. Last year West Elm offered up to 70% off select clearance markdowns, 40% to 50% off “bonus” deals and free shipping site-wide with promo code (although large and bulky items were excluded). Be on the lookout for a similar sale to return again this year.

How Do I Apply the Black Friday Discount at West Elm?

West Elm typically requires you to enter a promotion code at checkout for you to take advantage of their advertised Black Friday special. That’s for both any free shipping offers and site-wide discounts. You’ll need to enter the provided code after you add the selected items to your shopping bag. That’s done in the “Payment & Review” tab, the 4th step of the checkout process where your credit card information is given as highlighted in the example below.
