In our opinion, it’s never too early to start planning for Black Friday. It takes a lot of prep to win at the Olympics of shopping, so now is the time to start training–and by training we mean staying up-to-date on when retailers are offering deals, which brands and specific products will be discounted, and how you can snag them first.

Nordstrom is one of our favorite retailers to turn to during the marathon-shopping event that is Black Friday for many reasons. One: It offers most (if not all) of our favorite big-name beauty brands. Two: Nordstrom is known for discounting even its most-desired (and expensive) items. There are many more reasons, but we’ll get to the good stuff: the deals.

Here, we’re giving you all of the deets on Nordstrom’s Black Friday deals so you can have a successful haul before the holidays.

When do Nordstrom Black Friday sales start?

Although in recent years tons of retailers have started the holiday early and offered Black Friday deals on Thursday, Nordstrom is not one of them. Nordstrom remains one of the few retail giants that is closed on Thanksgiving (the holiday you forget about in the wake of Black Friday planning) and starts dishing out deals at midnight on Friday.

So, mark your calendar for Friday, November 29th as the official start of Nordstrom’s Black Friday deals.

Nordstrom keeps its in-store deals on the down-low, but last year leading up to the big day, it was known that the retailer was offering up to 60% off site-wide during the sale, so it’s safe to assume that Nordstrom Black Friday 2019 will be similar. Deals will last all the way through Cyber Monday, but if you know what’s good for you, you won’t wait until the last minute to score the items on your wish list.
