How to save money at Home Depot this Black Friday
While there are lots of shopping holidays that can net you good deals, the king of them all is definitely Black Friday. This is the time of year when retailers pull out all the stops. Black Friday 2020 is shaping up to be another incredible event, but you need to start preparing now to ensure you don’t miss out. Home Depot has been a popular Black Friday destination spot for homeowners, DIYers and just about anyone who loves a great deal.

In light of the current pandemic, Home Depot has announced that it’s doing Black Friday a little differently this year.
In previous years, Home Depot has stuck with the tradition of offering its incredible deals only on Black Friday. This meant that if you didn’t brave the stores (or navigate to its website to quickly snatch up deals), you would miss out.
However, for Black Friday 2020, Home Depot is doing a little reinvention. To reduce shopper stress and keep its stores from being overrun, the store will be running Black Friday for two whole months.
That’s right: Home Depot will release its 2020 Black Friday discounts starting at the beginning of November and continue them through December.
Home Depot’s Black Friday sale will occur both in stores and online. Along with the extended shopping period, this means you have plenty of freedom when it comes to snagging deals.
To help keep you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Home Depot has instituted some new policies and procedures.
Most stores have had their hours reduced. While many will still open at 6:00 a.m., they’ll be closing earlier to allow the associates time for deep cleaning and sanitation.
To ensure shoppers can practice safe social distancing, stores will be limiting the number of people who are allowed inside at the same.
All shoppers and crew members must wear a face covering at all times while in the store. If you don’t have a mask, some stores may be able to provide one for you.
Home Depot offers a wide range of installation services, but some may be suspended at this time. Before making any plans, be sure to reach out to your local store to see which services it can currently provide.
Home Depot’s return policy has been extended from 90 days to 180 days. This will allow you ample time to make a return if you need to.
If you haven’t already downloaded Home Depot’s mobile app, now would be a good time to do so. The store divulged that it’s allowing its mobile app users first dibs on the deals. While it didn’t state when those deals would go live, it’s expected that mobile app users will have access to Black Friday 2020 starting in early November. After an indeterminate time period (which could be one or two weeks), those deals will be available to the general public.
As Home Depot is always open online, you don’t have to worry about going to a local store if you don’t want to. However, if you still feel like heading out for a while, here’s what you need to know.
Per tradition, Home Depot is closed on Thanksgiving Day. But when Friday rolls around, you’ll need to get up early to beat other shoppers to the store. Most stores open up at 6:00 a.m. local time.
Don’t want to head out on the day after Thanksgiving? Because Home Depot is running its Black Friday sale for two months, you don’t have to. You can head out any time you’d like, as early as 6:00 a.m.
As Home Depot is a DIYer’s paradise, you can expect all kinds of home improvement deals to crop up for Black Friday 2020.
Home Depot and power tools are basically synonymous, so it’s no surprise that the store goes all out with discounts. Last year, there were savings on all the major brands, including Ridgid, DeWalt, Ryobi and Milwaukee. As a matter of fact, over five pages of the ad were dedicated to just power tools. A stand-out deal was a six-piece power tool set for just $199. If you just needed an impact driver, you could snag one for as little as $59.
Home Depot is also known as the place to go when you’re in need of new appliances. While the store offered lots of appliance bundles in 2019, one of the most impressive was a four-piece LG bundle that included a top-of-the-line refrigerator, overhead microwave, range and dishwasher for about $3,000—a savings of over $2,600.
Don’t have any big jobs to complete around the house? That’s okay; Home Depot is always sure to include everyday essentials in its Black Friday sale. Last year, it offered plastic storage totes and holiday-themed outdoor rugs for under $10; a no-touch trash can for $29.88; and a heavy-duty two-piece rolling tool case for just $99. Home Depot’s Black Friday 2020 deals are sure to be epic, but there are a couple of ways you can save even more.
When you sign up for Home Depot’s email newsletter, you’ll receive a coupon code for $5 off your next purchase of $50 or more. Wait until the Black Friday deals go live to use your $5 coupon at the same time.
Shopping online? Save on shipping costs by spending at least $45. If you’re ordering appliances, be sure your order total is at least $396 to qualify for free home delivery.
If you don’t want to wait for home delivery of your purchases, you can shop online and pick up at your local store. It’s free, and you don’t even have to go inside. An associate will be happy to bring your purchase out to your car as long as you arrive before 6:00 p.m.
