Black Friday 2019 – What to Expect
Last updated on Monday November 18, 2019: We are still waiting for West Elm to “officially” announce their 2019 Black Friday deals. But knowing them as well as we do, we pretty much know what’s coming. So what can you expect? Let’s take a look!
Our West Elm Black Friday sale predictions for 2019:
If this year will be anything like last these last few years in a row (which it likely will be), you can expect to see similar tiered discounting along the lines of 15% to 30% off your entire purchase depending on how much you spend. It usually looks something like this:
- 15% off on your total purchase of $100+.
- 20% off on your total purchase of $500+.
- 25% off on your total purchase of $1000+.
- 30% off on your total purchase of $3000+.
You can scroll down the page to check out the details from last year to get an idea of what’s likely coming again. We will of course be posting the updates here the moment they are available — Check back soon for the latest news or join our newsletter and we’ll keep you informed.
Black Friday Start & End Dates
Here’s a look at the expected start and end times for this year’s Black Friday sale from West Elm:
- Expected start date: Expect the sale to go live in stores and online on Monday November 25, 2019. That’s the Monday before Thanksgiving.
- Expected end date: Sunday December 1, 2019. It will likely then be replaced with a different Cyber Monday sale (last year’s Cyber Monday sale had up to 70% off select sale items).
Keep in mind that all West Elm stores will be closed all day on Thursday in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
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.
While you wait for Black Friday, be sure to take a look at West Elm’s site or visit the end of season clearance section at the back of the store to save up to 30% on bedding, bed frames, coffee tables, and more. We’re also including a list of all of their current offers below. Good luck and happy bargain hunting!
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.

Updated on Monday November 19, 2018: It’s funny how some stores are completely unpredictable in their Black Friday sale and surprise us every year and others are so predictable that we can tell you a year in advance what will be coming. West Elm is one of the later stores, and if you’ve been a regular Blacker Friday visitor, then you pretty much already know what they are offering us this year. And now (finally!) the news is official and the sale is now live on their site.
The details of West Elm’s Black Friday sale for 2018:
Starting today, visit westelm.com or your nearest West Elm retail store to get 15% to 30% off your entire purchase with promo code SAVEMORE. The ultimate discount percentage that you’ll receive depends on the total amount you spend. Here are this year’s tiers:
- 15% off your total purchase of $100 to $499.99.
- 20% off your total purchase of $500 to $999.99.
- 25% off your total purchase of $1000 to $2999.99.
- 30% off your total purchase of $3000 or more.
If shopping their site then free shipping is included again this year on everything except rugs and furniture. You’ll also find a number of special deals across with markdowns of up to 60% off (there’s a link on their site where you can see it all).
In terms of store hours, all locations are closed the entire day on Thanksgiving day itself (that’s November 22nd). They’ll open their doors on Friday at 8:00AM. The sale runs through Sunday, November 25, 2018 or while supplies last, whichever is first.
As always, some exclusions may apply so see West Elm’s store or site for all the details, offer terms and to shop the sale. Good luck out there!
