What to Expect From Nike Black Friday Sales in 2022

Nike doesn't go the Black Friday ad route. Instead, the retailer is mostly known for having a sale that drops item prices to notable lows. But even though they don't release an ad, they still feature early deals. In 2021, for instance, the first mention we saw of Nike's Black Friday discounts was on November 21 — for reference, Black Friday fell on November 26.

Nike as a whole doesn't seem to have a policy about being open or closed on Thanksgiving. But Nike's brick-and-mortar stores are spread out all over, and there are different types — like Factory and Community locations, for example. So your best bet is going to be to call your local store before you head out.

Nike will likely roll out early Black Friday deals days before the shopping holiday, then keep the discounts going until the day after.

If you don't want to worry about calling around, consider shopping online, as Nike is always open there!

Speaking of shopping online, you may be wondering when Nike starts to offer Black Friday deals; look for them to pop up the Sunday before the shopping holiday. Typically, Nike's Black Friday sale runs for a week or so, starting on Sunday and going through Black Friday itself. But the day after, Nike may extend the sale and potentially increase the discounts.

Consider a couple of factors when deciding when to shop Nike around Black Friday. If you're looking at popular sizes or styles, then earlier is the way to go, as these sell out quickly. But if you wait until the day after Black Friday, you may see even better discounts, as we noted above.

The best time to shop at Nike comes down to what you're hoping to buy and the popularity of the item. Shopping early could guarantee you get what you want. But if you wait until later, you could save more. It's about whether you're okay with taking a gamble and risking items selling out altogether.

Nike's early discounts tend to be pretty modest. Last year, for example, the company cut just an extra 20% off select styles. Waiting for Black Friday is generally the best way to go. During the day after Thanksgiving last year, Nike cut an extra 20% off Jordan shoes and offered up to 40% off outerwear, along with an extra 20% off previously discounted items. Nike also hosted a "Black Friday event" the day after the holiday, knocking up to 50% off plus an extra 20% off.

Expect Nike to offer a Black Friday coupon for extra savings on already-discounted items.

Nike doesn't really offer doorbusters. Instead, it provides a coupon that serves as its sale and is valid for about a week around Black Friday.

Nike may offer free shipping as part of its Black Friday promotions, but even if it doesn't, you can still get this perk. Simply join the Nike Membership program for free, and you'll receive free standard shipping on all your orders.

What About Nike Cyber Monday Sales?

Nike will likely extend its Black Friday event through the day after the holiday itself, but as soon as Sunday starts, the Cyber Monday deals should begin. And the retailer could offer up several days' worth of savings once again, which means you could have at least a week and a half to shop discounted items at Nike.

The day before Cyber Monday last year, Nike offered up to 46% off plus an extra 20% off Air Max shoes, as well as up to 50% off outerwear plus an extra 20% off those items. Then, on the holiday itself, the retailer took up to 50% off and an extra 20% off in its Nike Cyber Week deals.
