In 2019, LL Bean had a very straightforward sale: When you applied its exclusive coupon code at checkout, you saved 20% off your entire purchase. The sale started on Black Friday and lasted through Tuesday, December 3rd.
What was particularly exciting about last year’s 20% savings was that it also applied to sale merchandise. This means you could have enjoyed a discount on top of a discount.
LL Bean didn’t have any special shipping promotions for Black Friday last year, but its regular promise of free shipping with a purchase of $50 or more was in force. You could also receive free shipping if you were an LL Bean Mastercard holder.
